Duracoat Question

So I was planning on having my MK III 22/45 upper duracoated but the only local shop that does duracoating said I should just leave my rear sight base in place... Does this sound right? I'm wondering how he's gonna get the coating in the little close gap under the front of the base. He's only charging 75 bucks for the job, it just seems to me that the sight base would have to be removed to coat it right. Any help would be appreciated.

Odd to me. When I coat, I remove sights. I use Cerakote.
