Can we start a picture thread dedicated only to Glocks with red-dot sights?

I just sent my 19C off to L&M Precision for the whole package.

Just wanted to see if we could start a picture thread dedicated to only Glock's with MRDS installed?

Any pics you can contribute would greatly ease the pain of me waiting for my slide to come back with the RMR and suppressor sights installed.

I don't think Mark is doing the ATOM package yet. I sent my slide off just for the standard milling, installing of the RMR, and installing of the tritium BUIS. He's Cerakoting the cutout as well.

Very cool!!!
I was just curious if maybe you were one of the first on the waiting list for an ATOM.

May I ask what is that? I mean, what brand of sight and how is it mounted? Thanx.

Genin - Nice G19.
I have a new G19 and a new Aimpoint T-1 waiting for the slide work.

I'm not him, however that is a Trijicon RMR (Ruggedized Miniature Reflex), and its attached to the slide by milling a cutout into the slide, then drilling and tapping the screw holes.

I'm having the same thing done to my Glock 19C.

I truly think red dots on handguns are the wave of the future.

I'm not either, and that's an aftermarket TSD slide too. Very high quality stuff too.

yeah. TSD does very nice work. I had them mill one of my spare slides for a rmr. Very precise work.

I am sorry to be so ignorant, but you guys have gotten me curious about red dots. Why have the slide milled? I have seen ads for mounts that slide into the rear-sight slot. Would this not be cheaper, reversible, and just as effective?

I idea behind milling the slide, is so the RMR can sit lower, and so that suppressor height sights can co-witness with the RMR, in case something goes wrong with the RMR (highly unlikely, especially with a Dual-Illuminated version with no electronics at all). The other idea, is that it decreases the learning curve, as your so used to looking for, and lining up iron sights, that it keeps you from having to search for the dot on the RMR.

The main issue with the slide-mounted adapters is that the optic sits very high, and there is no way to have iron sights along with the optic.

There are factory mounts that allow you to bolt-on the various red dot sights with no modification to the slide. They probably work fine for target shooting or plinking, but I have read they come loose fairly easy. There are two main reasons for milling the slide. The optic is much more solid (secure) and it sits lower on the slide which allows the use of back up iron sights (BUIS). In the event the optic breaks or the battery dies, you can still look through the bottom portion of the optic and see the taller suppressor sights that are used. The normal height factory sights are usually too short. These dot equipped pistols are designed with combat or serious use in mind. Many predict they are the future of handguns, at least for law enforcement and military use. There are several people now who use dot pistols as their carry weapon (ccw). There are only a few companies that do this work presently, and I am still trying to decide which to use on my new Glock 19 and Aimpoint Micro T-1. I will post pics as soon as I get it finished. Great thread!!!

Thank you very much. Very informative. I think that I shall look into getting a second (milled) slide so that I can swap to the straight iron sights slide for training courses, and then back to the RMR mounted slide for defensive carry. Last question: is there any reason not to do this with my G30?

No reason to NOT do it.

It does take some getting used to, but with the addition of the iron sights, its not as bad as just putting an RMR on a dovetail mount that replaces the rear sight.

I say try it out.

I really do see these as the wave of the future.

Got about 400 rounds through it this week. Running like a sewing machine, had no problems transitioning from irons to MRD. I'm already hooked.

Quick phone pic...

They 'splained it pretty well, but a photo may help you understand better.

The gun on the left has a milled "inlet" installation; the gun on the right, though a ,22 conversion kit, features the same dimensions as a factory 9mm G19 slide. It has a dove-tail mount.Note how the the sight on the left is considerably lower than the one on the right.

Aside from rendering the front sight useless, the higher dove-tail mount also makes the piece more difficult to conceal; if that matters to you.
