FAQ- Frequently Asked Questions


What do I include in my shipment?

You will send us the slide, barrel, work order and payment (if paying by check or money order).  If paying by credit card, we will give you a call for your card information once the work has been completed. ***Do not send the guide rod and springs***

Do I need to remove the firing pin and firing pin spring from the slide?

No. You do not need to remove the firing pin and firing pin spring. 

How much insurance should I add to my shipment?

We recommend adding enough insurance to replace the entire pistol if the slide and barrel become lost during shipping. We are not responsible for lost shipments.

How does Innovative Arms send shipments?

We ship through your choice of either USPS Priority Mail or UPS. All shipments will have insurance and signature required for delivery.

What’s the current turnaround time?

The current turnaround time is estimated between 8-12 weeks.

How do I know if my Kel-Tec P3AT or P32 is second generation?

Please contact the manufacturer to verify. You will need your pistol serial number. 

What other services are offered for these pistols?

The sight upgrade and magazine release work are the only service that we offer for the pistols.

Can I get a silencer for my pistol?

No. The design of these particular pistols do not allow the use of our silencers.

What sights are used in the upgrade?

The front sight is a newly manufactured Trijicon night sight. The rear sight is a plain notch sight with cocking serrations that is manufactured by us, in-house.

Are there any sight options?

No. The sights are not offered in any other configuration.

Are the sights available for purchase without installation?

No. The sights are only offered as a complete upgrade to your slide (both front and rear sight installation).

Are the sights adjustable?

The rear sight is adjustable for windage.

Can the sights be installed on the Ruger LCP “custom” model?

No. Ruger cuts the slide on the “custom” model in such a way that will not allow for our sight upgrade.

My slide is engraved, will installing the sights affect the engraving ?

Yes, depending on the engraving. We suggest emailing us an image of your slide so we can tell you for sure.

Do I need to send the barrel even if I don’t want it polished?

Yes. The barrel is required to assure proper fit after the sights are installed and the slide has been refinished. If you do not include the barrel in your shipment you may have fitting issues with the slide.

What’s the benefit of polishing the barrel and feed ramp?

Polishing the feed ramp assists with smooth ammo feed. Polishing the barrel is purely for aesthetics.

Does the slide have to be refinished?

Yes, unless the slide is stainless steel. Refinishing of the slide is required due to the machining process to install the sights. Please be aware that some owners believe that their slide is stainless steel when it is actually chrome and will require refinishing. If you are not sure if your slide is stainless steel, we can verify when we receive it, or you can contact Ruger with your pistol serial number for verification from the manufacturer.

Is there a price break for a stainless slide that is not being refinished?

No, the price is the same. Please be aware that because the stainless slide is machined for the sights it will be glass bead blasted for the stainless steel slide to have an even sheen.

I have a Chrome slide, will the slide still need to be refinished?

Yes. When we machine on the slide to install the sights the chrome finish will be compromised and the entire slide will need to be refinished to prevent rusting.

Which is a better finish, parkerizing or moly resin?

Both parkerizing and the moly resin finish are as durable, if not more durable, than the factory finish. Parkerizing and the moly resin (in the Satin Black color) look almost identical to the factory finish. The moly resin finish is the most popular of the two finishes because it holds up better in the conceal carry environment.

What’s the difference between the moly resin colors finishes, other than just the color difference?

There is no difference in durability between any of the moly resin colors. The only thing to be aware of is that lighter colors may show dirt and residue more than a darker color.

After 5-years I am still amazed about the sight modification IA did to my LCP. First class business!

Very nice gloss-black cerakote and polished barrel and great sights really turned the LCP into a beauty. Fast turnaround and great customer service always let me know what was happening. Shoots great and has much improved magazine insertion. Love my short-nine even more now - thanks!

Our melted P32 is a fine carry pistol, purse or pocket. But it no longer has lousy sights! This sight upgrade is really really Awesome. Really makes this pistol great for quick target acquisition. Thank you.

I was delighted with the quick turn around after I sent in my LCP II slide and barrel. My LCP II looked custom with the burnt brass colored slide. The sights are awesome. I just got back from the range. It shoots very well and I did not have to adjust for windage. The sights were right on. Thank everyone responsible at InnovativeArms for the delightful upgrade.

I have the LCP gen 2 with slightly better stock sights than gen 1. The sights from Innovative Arms are awesome, completely transforms the LCP. The fit and workmanship is extraordinary. I strongly recommend this upgrade. You will not be disappointed.

Sent my Stainless LCP slide in for tritium night Sights . Wow was I impressed with the finished product! Beautiful workmanship on the dovetails for the front and rear sight. Love the large tritium front sight with a white outline. Very nice sight picture.
I had some scratches on the slide. Innovative Arms removed the scratches, the slide looked better then new after the sight install. Hi polished barrel was nice too. Very pleased with the finished product.

Very happy with the sight upgrade on my P3AT. Will be sending my LCP in as soon as they start up doing the upgrades again....

Beautiful work and good communication.  I was quoted 2-3 weeks and received it back on day 13. I will recommend this company.

I elected to have my P3aT upgraded with the sights and Parkerize finish with the barrel/ramp polished. Excellent workmanship and even called to answer my follow-up questions. I shot 100 rounds at the range today with no functional issues to report. Thanks Innovative Arms.

I received my LCP back last week ahead of schedule after getting the sight upgrade and I was really impressed with the fit and function of the sights as well as the flawless Parkerizing job Innovative Arms did on my weapon. The sight picture was drastically upgraded and made it very easy to qualify with the weapon at 25 yds. I am confident I can defend myself in low light now as well and not just at contact distances should my primary weapon go down or get taken in a struggle.
