X-Carry slide milling

Recommended Posts

I would like to have my X-Carry slide milled for an RMR with a Sig rear sight dovetail forward of the optic. Does the fact that the X-Carry is already cut for the Romeo 1 stop me from getting this work done? If not who can perform the work?

TIA

That would raise the red dot sight and would not address getting the rear sight in front of the optic.

Is there a Sig slide w/o the Romeo 1 cutout that I could have milled for an RMR with a Sig rear sight dovetail forward of the optic? There seems to be a lot of slides on Ebay ATM.

The romeo 1 has rear sights behind the optic but I think for what you want you should go with a base slide and have all the custom work done its going to cost more for it all.

Any full size 320 slide w/o the sight plate can be milled however you want it

Sight in front of the RMR etc

Here's my X-Carry that I had cut for RMR. This slide has the Romeo 1 cut, if yours is cut for a DPP, you will not be able to mount the RMR without a plate. Sig has hogged out the bottom side of the slide so much that there's not enough material to recut the slide with recoil bosses. What me and my buddy determined was that we needed to mill the front portion of the cut just a touch and then drill & tap the holes. We used a CNC machine to do the milling and drilling & tapping, because it needed to be very precise. This would allow the optic needed to be sandwiched front to back to insure there wouldn't be added stress on the bolts. FYI, one of the bolt holes for the RMR pattern will have to go through the extractor spring channel. You will need to file down some of the bolt to prevent it from rubbing, you wont need to take much off depending on the length of the bolts you use, It took only a few passes of a hand file to achieve the clearance needed. Also, there's not enough material to achieve irons forward without potentially weakening the breach face If you're looking to get this done hit up my buddy Will at Mac Defense Industries in Woodstock GA, tell him Anthony sent you, if you have Instagram look him up at MacDefenseind. He also did the Stippling on the grip

I'd like to thank everyone for their advice. I'm going to go with the full size slide and have it cut to fit. 👍

Thank you!

That's a very good price for that.

I paid $279 for a Pro Full Size, no barrel, no RSA.

Now that it's out there, I would jump on it before the lurkers snap them up !

Are you looking for something like this? I had Vulcan Machine Werks mill my X-carry for a RMR / Holosun and they milled it for a rear sight. They use Glock rear sight as it's a bit thiner than a Sig sight. I'm not sure if they could mill a sight in front of the optic but it would be worth asking them.

Have you seen this line of P320's that Sig started selling? It's the RXP line they come with front and rear suppressor height iron sights in addition to a Romeo1 Pro. Retail is $900-$1100 depending on barrel length you choose

No, I haven't seen them. Thanks.

I've narrowed down the slide milling to a couple of options but no one seems to have plain black suppressor height sights to fit the Sig. Will the front sight .395" Tall x .125" Notch Width Serrated and the rear sight .400" Tall x .125" Wide Ramped Serrated  from Dawson be tall enough to be seen over the RMR?

not sure about the measurements, but I found these sights https://suarezinternational.com/suarez-cowitness-plain-black-rear-sight-sig-p226-p320/ for the rear, and these https://suarezinternational.com/suarez-cowitness-plain-black-front-sight-sig-p226-p320/ for the front. Unfortunately they're not in stock

I'd ask Dawson.

They will know.

You will have to tell them whether you want Absolute or Lower 1/3 Co-Witness.
