  1. 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!
  2. Is there any benefit to a closed emitter red dot vs the "standard" open emitter on Open guns?
  3. Hi guys, I am wondering what is the most reliable red dot for an open gun?
  4. Have you ever noticed that reticles in YouTube videos look so bloomed out when the reviewer says they look crisp? It's not your astigmatism, it's a lack of focus. No, not your lack of focus but the reviewers inexperience with manual camera focus and the camera sensor's inability to adjust exposure as well as our human eyes. https://youtu.be/-LvSG161Qvk
  5. Just started shooting Open with an RTS2 red dot sight... My sight mount doesn't have a shield in front of the sight and some oil gets splashed on the lens... What's the best way to clean it? I've tried normal eye glasses cleaner and it doesn't do much... I don't want to hurt the protective coating on the lens, but I want to get the oil off...
  6. Finalizing my first CO set up and had an interesting thought. When I RO, I recall plenty of folks turning on the dot at Make Ready, but I don’t recall anyone turning it off at ICHDH. Do you just leave it on or head to the safe area after stowing you’re mags? I realize the fancy ones have auto on/ off but I’m going on the cheap to try the division.
  7. Finally received the SJC mount for my Glock 34 and C more red dot. Will try to explain the process with photos. This is what I started with. This is the hardware that came with the mount. Notice the flanges. Once you drill the holes these go from inside the receiver to the outside. I drilled a pilot hole once I determined the location. The used the recommended 19/64 point bit to enlarge the hole. Did this from both sides. Not one continued hole.
  8. 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
  9. Hey guys! I just wanted to get your opinion on this new Sig Sauer Romeo5 XDR Compact Red Sight 2 I found on Bereli. Its on sale for 149.99 and figured I couldn't pass it up. But I'm not so sure about it and would love a second (and third and forth...) opinion. Is it worth it? is it a good price? Good quality? Are there better options out there? Please let me know. Thanks in advance SigSauerRedDot.webp
  10. Dear all, An SRO is extremely expensive in Europe but I want one. However, we have to pre-order without having a chance to look trough it. Would you recommend the 2,5 MOA or the 5 MOA for IPSC????? Advice appreciated!
  11. Trijicon has just announced the new SRO. Same footprint as the RMR, with much larger glass and top loading battery. Euro Optics has it listed at $490 - Link MidwayUSA has it listed at an MSRP of $749 but is selling it at $600 - Link YouTube Video
