  1. I am thinking of putting my Vortex Venom on my Glock 34 Gen 4 but not sure if what I want to do makes sense in terms of preserving the stock gun. My preferred option was to buy a stripped MOS slide, so I could maintain my factory pistol, but the asking prices are insane, almost as much as a pistol. Even the non-MOS G34 slides have crazy prices. So, I am now thinking of having my factory slide milled for my Venom. I did this for my G17 but was able to buy an aftermarket slide for the red dot, preserving my original slide. The issue is, if I have the slide milled, I will lose the rear dovetail so the slide could no longer have iron sights. I could have a new dovetail milled in front of the optic, but to me that looks stupid having the sight 2 inches farther forward from the back of the slide. I don't plan on ever selling my pistol, but you never know. Is milling the slide and losing the dovetail a dumb thing to do? I guess I could always hope that in the future slide prices will come down to reality or reasonably priced aftermarket G34 slides will be for sale. Anyone with an opinion please chime in, especially if you did something similar or thought about it. Thanks
  2. Hey Guys, So I've been trying to locate a gunsmith who can/will mill out my Grand Power X-cal or K100 slide for a Shield RMS. (Carry Optics) I know there are Eliason style mounts out there (for x-cal) that I have found from reading others posts: http://www.customguns.co.uk/shop-page/4580285375/grand-power-k22-xtrim-minisight-mount/9700063 http://www.egwguns.com/pistol-scope-mounts/optima/jp-mount-for-colt-gold-cup/ But that isn't really the route that I'd like to go. Milling would get the dot lower and would be a more secure mount than the above options. I contacted the company who did the Gold K100 job 2 years ago and was turned down because he said the slide is just not ideal for a red dot. I understand the geometry/lack of material to work on etc so I get that. However after seeing that it's been done successfully, I don't see why it cant be done again. They are such awesome shooters I think it would make them even more fun. So if anyone knows any gunsmiths who are able or willing to do this job please let me know. I'm sure other people are just as interested and I would really appreciate a referral to a professional!
  3. I'm looking to hack an ounce from a hybrid bull barrel, does anyone have some pictures of aggressive cuts in their bull barrels? Here's what I've seen so far: I'm thinking of something a little different though
