if anyone is looking to have a pistol slide milled for a miniature red dot, I'll recommend you look at the work from Battle Werx... outstanding machine work for my RMR, so precise from front to rear the sight would not seat if not perfectly vertical... 2 week turn around of which probably 6 days was shipping via USPS... $75 + $6.99 shipping for basic non finish cut

Nice! Thanks for sharing!

For me, for now, I only want to train one way with pistol, and that’s with iron sights. Hopefully my eyesight will continue to let me do that for a while yet.

chaos... the ability to use the dot at night compared to a tritium sight system was the determining factor for me.. I've started shooting a G17 with a Vortex Venom for Steel Challenge, and added a Venom to my Advantage Arms .22lr conversion unit via DPP Titanium 7075-T6 dove tail adapter...my original Heinie Slant Pro sights are still partially visible at the bottom of the RMR window in case of a catastrophic failure

I've shot a fixed sight pistol for USPSA for over 35 years... my Limited M card was earned with a single stack 1911 in .45

Nice! I would love to mount a RDS to my VP9 or P30 but don't want to buy a new slide. That's pretty reasonable, price wise.

Phaedrus...I bought a complete Swensen slide from Midway for the Venom as they were factory machined for the Venom and a couple of others, but at the time did not have one for the Trijicon.... I sent the original slide to be cut for the RMR (the non adjustable one)... I like the way Battle Werx machines the locating posts and then threads through the stud... the front to rear clearance is outstandingly precise...they were the most reasonable of those I looked at, and after watching the video of the CNC work, decided on them... regards

I really want to get an Aimpoint ACRO; spendy but I have never been disappointed in an Aimpoint. Buy once, cry once.

Phaedrus.. I have 2 4x32's a TA01 and TA31-F, and a 1.5x16 TA44.... the TA01 and TA44 have been beaten up pretty well since 2005 on my 3 gun rifles.... feel the same way about Trijicon... anyway it was my birthday present to myself smile

Makes sense.

Over the last year I’ve made some changes in what I carry; I only carry with tritium nightsights and a weaponlight. I practice regularly in low and no-light conditions with live fire. While I have lots of room for improvement it’s working for me. Hopefully my eyesight will allow this to work for some years yet.

Intereting discussion as I just rec'd my new Daniel Defense DD5 V3. Decided I wanted to upgrade from 5.56 to 7.62. Have to get an optic for it and of course, the damn optic is looking to cost as much or more than the rifle, as usual. Still considering my options. Everyone I know has an opinion, and they are all different. ;=)

Doug... I've had several 7.62x51 rifles, a couple of M1As, inch pattern L1A1, and AR10... I am primarily a game player, USPSA, 3 gun, and now an AR9 for pistol caliber carbine competition... early on, there was a premium on shooting major caliber (.308) but not so much today (there is a Heavy Metal division)...my game 5.56 rifle has a Trijicon TA31-F... and the back up has the older TA01... the young guys today mostly go with the low power variable optics... good luck with your choice

the RMR pistol project is in consideration of advancing age, and declining eyesight... cataracts are not quite to the development stage to warrant an operation yet

if I had kids that were in law enforcement, they would be carrying a RMR equipped pistol if allowed by their administration... I think it is the wave of the future
