The Sight upgrade Includes, front night sight, plain notch rear sight with cocking serrations, sight installation and Parkerize refinishing of the slide. The additional options are, barrel and feed ramp polishing, and color finishes.
The sight upgrade is available for the Ruger LCP (excluding custom model, and LCP II), Taurus TCP, Keltec P32 and the second generation Keltec P3AT. We have been upgrading the sights on these pistols for civilians and Law Enforcement officers across the nation since 2007. With an eye for detail, our craftsman take the time to ensure proper fit, sight picture, and finish. Please review the information in the FAQ tab, and contact us for a work order prior to shipping.

*Shipping & handling is $13. We ship by US Priority mail, with insurance, and a signature required for delivery.

Satin Black resin finish instead of the parkerized finish is an additional $15
Colored resin finish instead of the parkerized finish is an additional $25. The color options are Gloss Black, Brushed Stainless, OD Green, FDE, or Burnt Bronze.
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.
What’s the current turn-around time?
The current turn around-time is estimated between 3-4 weeks.
How do I know if my Keltec P3AT is second generation?
The second generation has the addition of a metal clip that holds the takedown pin in place. The second generation also has a single allen head screw the holds the extractor spring in place. You can also contact the manufacturer www.keltecweapons.com to verify. You will need your pistol serial number.
What other services are offered for these pistols?
The sight upgrade is the only service that we offer.
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. There are no rear sights currently on the market that will accommodate the design of the slide. We manufacture the rear sight specifically for this sight upgrade and do not offer a variation. There are no front sights currently on the market that will accommodate the slide except for the front night sight that we currently use.
Are the sights available for purchase without installation?
No. The sights are only offered as a complete upgrade to your slide.
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.
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 in 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.
