So I've taken the plunge to outfit my 19 with an RMR. There are several threads on the topic, but I did not see anything specifically relating to DIY and purchasing the slide from Brownells.

Anyway for those interested here is what it looks like with some specs and considerations you should take into account:

1. The slide is 17-4 Aircraft Grade Stainless Steel (in the white).
2. Does not come with the shorter RMR mounting screws (screws that come with the RMR will be too long - I'm told)
3. Does not come with a channel liner
4. Once Brownells stock is out, there will be no more per OST
5. You can purchase finished slides with all internals (minus barrel + Recoil Unit + RMR) directly from OST here (includes suppressor sights, shorter mounting screws, and all other internals):

http://www.onesourcetactical.com/tsdpistolslides.aspx

There is something to be said about purchasing it direct from OST since all parts are assembled/tested, and it's essentially ready to go with the addition of a barrel/RSA/RMR. Once you add up the price on an assembled slide from OST vs. the price on DIY, it is comparable to doing it yourself.

DIY continued:

6. Suppressor sights are available from Brownells. They are out of stock on Tritium versions. You can still purchase plain ones (ie. non night sight). Curiously, if you look on Ameriglo's website, you will note that they do not carry the plain sights (I could not find them). They do however have the night sight version but it is out of stock for $120. Dealer cost on plain sights from Brownells is $28 (currently in stock).

7. You will need to purchase a channel liner and either fashion a tool for insertion yourself....or buy a channel liner tool. Since the FP Channel on this slide is completely dry...it will not just slip in.

8. Refinishing options: CCR has received some great reviews and I have personally spoken to Mary (very nice lady). They offer great prices for members on this forum. I was quoted $49 + $8 return shipping on their proprietary "Cera-Hyde" finish. It is available in different colors (FDE, OD, House Black, etc..), but also in their new "Tri-Tanium" finish (which has a metallic look to it).

Looking at the quality of this slide...I think I may shoot it awhile as is (until I decide what color I want).

9. Where to get the RMR: I found Gunbroker to be an excellent source for purchasing the RMR. A RM07 can be had NIB for $469

So there you have it. UPS misrouted my RM07 that was supposed to be delivered today, so I will have to wait another week until I'm ready to shoot.

Will do, I should have everything by Weds minus any refinishing. I'm going to shoot it a while as is. Still trying to decide what finish I want. I was originally going the tri-tanium route, but it basically already has that look in the white, right out of the box.

To be honest, I'm leaning towards Melonite now. Anyone know a good place that does this? The web turned up a few results, but when called they no longer provide this service.

The RMR is expensive, but in 35 years of shooting I don't think any accessory I've ever purchased for a firearm has been money as well spent. The TSD slide puts the RMR into a perfect co-witness. The combination is in a class by itself.

The finish is Desert Sand Duracoat. The stock stainless is nice, I just wanted something a little sweeter.

Do stock sights co-witness perfectly or are suppressor sights needed?

Suppressor sights are a must to co witness with a RMR. Even suppressor sights are barely high enough to clear the rear of a RMR in a milled slide.

I agree. RMRs are worth the money. Buy once, cry once.

Red dots on handguns are the future, no question. Its only a matter of time before it becomes affordable enough for everyone.

Suppressor sights came in today. Point of note, the rear sight has to be fitted. There is no way it was going on "as is". I could barely start it on the slide. I used a straight edge to maintain the angle of the dovetail and took off equal material from the front and back. No issues with the front sight. Also in were the shorter RMR mounting screws purchased from OST. RMR should be here tomorrow.

Got the RMR in today. For those wanting to DIY, here are a few more things to keep in mind when finishing the project:

The RMR looks like this on the bottom, so some electrical tape on the slide will ensure a good seal and insulate the battery. Note the rubber ring surrounding the bottom portion of the RMR.

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y223/kodiakp/photo1-4.jpg

The milled portion on the TSD slide is tight by design. What you will have to do is insert the RMR nose first and ensure it is centered...then use a small rubber mallet to lightly tap the rear into place. Don't worry, you won't damage it.

Cole125

Well it's not really a issue, its just the way dual-illuminated optics are. It works with a light on it, just the dot is not super bright.

For me, I don't care. I just use my RMR Glock for a range fun gun, and the dual illuminated works perfect in day light.

Verbage that accompanied the pic:

All Red Dot milling is done with all
registration points properly milled
into the slide. This allows for
co-witness with front sight if
needed. Bosses have to be in the
slide for proper strength.

Broke it in this weekend and can only say why did I wait so long. The difference between shooting with standard sights is stark. I'm really digging the the RM07 for its adjustability and its automatic function. The automatic mode works great going from well lit to dark areas... and it adjusts instantly when the tac light is engaged. Here is a pic of the dot manually adjusted a few times.

Looking great kodiakpb.

One thing I have been wondering about these RDS systems is, how do you turn them on? If you were to have one of these on a EDC gun, would you need to have the dot on all day or does the dot come on automatically turn on when the gun is drawn? Just curious.

kodiakpb

Incredible man...no joke. The difference is analogous to going from a M4 (AR) with only irons to a M4 (AR) with Collimator sight and BUIS.

Nice! I wish they made a pre-milled slide for the M&P line. I'm thinking about buying a spare slide from S&W and having it milled for an RMR for my EDC M&Pc 40.

I'm thinking about the same, or just sending in my slide to have it done.

According to Trij, the battery should last 4 years under the conditions specified below. You can turn it on and off to conserve even more. TSD recommends changing your battery out every year.

Over 4 years of continuous use (when used at 70F (21C)) at setting 4 of 8. *Extreme temperatures (high or low) will affect lithium battery performance.

how do you turn them on?

Depending on the model you choose (as in the RM04),,,, some are always on with no batteries needed. They run on Tritium and fiber optic light gathering opposed to the battery.

Trijicon makes several models so you can choose battery type as the gent above if you're just gonna play at the range etc. (RM06 is one I believe),,, or dual illum type that are always on for EDC type use.

I love my Dual-Illuminated RM05 (9 MOA dot). The dot is NOT as big as it is in this photo. My camera sucks. Its about as wide as the front tritium suppressor sight.

Just have one question -

How does the 'battle field' replacement of the battery work?

I am reading about tapping the mount into place with a rubber mallet - So I am assuming the battery is accessible from the top? Right?


Just checking ...

The batteries aren't accessible from the top. You have to take the RMR off the weapon or mount to change the battery. That's another reason I decided to go with the Dual-Illuminated version - no batteries to ever have to worry about, no electronics to worry about.

The LED and Dual-Illuminated RMRs each have their own pros and cons. Its up to the individual to decide which best suits their needs.

I'd have no issue carrying this:

1. BUIS (Back Up Iron Sights).
2. Several collimator sights currently being used by MIL/LE use batteries. To suggest battery powered optics are only good for paper punching at the range is as flawed as saying ported Glocks will blind you at night and disorient you.
3. If you use a weapon light, tritium/fiber optic RMR is not optimal.

The battery is located on the bottom. You would remove the two screws and tap the housing out. Having said that, the battery life is 4 years on the mid setting (4). If you change the battery every year you won't be doing any "battlefield" battery replacements. For the sake of argument, even if it went out, you have BUIS. The RMR essentially extends your effective range.

I agree with the rest of your post, however, in regard to the above, I disagree. My RM05 only has washout issues on solid white walls with the TLR-1 on, which is a non-issue.

Have you ever tried a dual-illuminated RMR?

Not everyone puts BUIS on their RDS pistols. I have a batt op-ed RDS slide with no irons at all,,, I wouldn't choose to take this anywhere but the range due to that fact. I have another with BUIS and a dual RMR that I would carry anywhere.

You may not have issues carrying a batt op-ed RMR,, and I may not have issues carrying it,, but the gent I was answering seemed to,,, so I was reacting to HIS concerns re. batt power on an EDC pistol,,, hence my quote of HIS question.:tongueout:

I have the slide on a 17 frame cut to G-19 length, Mag Cuts, finger humps removed, 360 deg stippling, and the void in the grip filled in. Shortning the grip makes it easier to conceal and I have no problems with the 19 length grip. All in all I am very satisfied with the pistol/sight combination.

I should have been more clear in my reply to him. The RMR stays on and the RM07 has a battery life of 4 years in mid setting. You can always turn the RM07 off when not carrying as well. There are no issues EDCing a properly setup weapon with RMR. Now if we are talking Walmart RDS's...yes I agree that is a different story.

You have to admit that you made it sound like battery powered RMR's were only good for range use within the context of your reply because you referenced me and my setup. Apologies if I misunderstood. :wavey:

Update:

I wasn't really satisfied with the tape on the slide. Although it does effectively insulate the battery, there is a tiny bit of overhang on the sides of the RMR as it sits on the frame. This is due to the fact that the RMR is slightly wider than the slide.

http://img.tapatalk.com/d/12/10/27/nesasamu.jpg

Trijicon makes a sealing plate called the RM63. You can pick them up directly from Trijicon for about $8. This sealing plate is now also standard equipment from OST. OST has stated that they will provide this plate at a reduced cost for those who have purchased systems from them...you just need to give them a call.

Here are the specs:

With the seal plate installed, the RMR can be submerged up to 66ft. for at least one hour without leakage. Made from stainless steel and weighs 2.8 g. Compatible with the all Trijicon manufactured RMR pistol mounts.

the plate is $8 from Trijicon but a reduced price from OST if you had your slide milled from them???...

Thanks for this information...I think member here bentbiker was trying to get this option to be standard equipment back when OST started these...

Hey Silver,

Thats what they are saying. I just bought direct from Trijicon. If you are MIL the RM63 is $6 with free shipping.

This is so cool I wonder why they make this for only Gen3. I have a first year Gen 1 17 and a Gen 4 19 may have to contact Bowie but I hate to ruin any collectability on my 17.

Yeah, and Gabe told me in no uncertain terms how unnecessary a sealing plate was, and how unnecessary my input was. He/OST didn't get either of my next two slide-milling jobs. Thankfully, Trijicon listened.

Because Gen 3 fits on Gen 2 & gen 1.

I will be glad to get home and to the gunsmith and pick up my G22 slide he worked over for me while I was overseas. Mounting the 9 moa dot and hope to zero in at 50 yards. Have a 9mm conversion barrel also to try it out with. Any suggestions on how to best sight it in?
