I picked up a set and the front sight has no place for a screw nor did it come with a screw

some one told me that they have to be staked?

how and is there any one in the Hudson Valley NY that does this

I can't remember who makes the tool for staking/restaking Glock factory front night sights. You could just send them and the slide back to Glock for installation. They probably wouldn't charge much.

Glock makes the tool.

Online venders sell them for $35-40. I would hold out for the next GSSF in the area and have the factory armorer install them, that way hopefully they will warrantee them if you have a problem.

I can get the Glock factory front sight crimping tool for $45 plus shipping directly from Glock. It takes a loooong time though.

I'd just sell the sight and buy one that screws on. I've gone through 2 and am now on the 3rd on my 27 Back up gun.

I'd go the (hopefully) free GSSF route.

I would spend $35 for a front night sight that screws on before I'd buy that staking tool.
