Recommendations for cutting a dovetail into a slide?

Hello All,
Not sure if this is the right thread or not but I'd like to have a dovetail cut in the front of my Kahr S9 slide if affordable, any recommendations? I would like to upgrade the stock sights to the XS Big Dot night sights or even Standard Dot night sights if plausible. My rear sight has a dovetail cut already but my front sight has the pin in style, consequently my sight options are highly limited.

Thanks,
Ralph

stoble will become famous soon enough
I have the Kahr CW9 with the original sights. Also, have a CZ Compact 75 with Truglo TFX (big dot on the front) sights and love them. Good for defense and they glow in the dark while I sleep!

Thanks Stoble. Can you take a picture of the sights side by side for a comparison that I may see? Many folks complain the Big Dots are to large and consequently accuracy suffers. Do you know if the standard XS dot sights are still more prominent than the stock Kahr sights?

Can you recommend a milling service for the dovetail?

God Bless,
Ralph
