red dot pistol guys
« on: July 22, 2019, 03:56:17 am »
as the sport grows more and more ppl want to become faster with target acqusition, so red dots become more common. I strongly encourage whomever cuts your slide (specifically Glock) to ask them if the cuts will get into internal channels that are crucial to the firearm function.

example

wednesday we qualed for the quarter and a friend re-locktightened his RMR. well the blue lock tight actually made its way down into the depressor plunger rod and completely locked up his extraction "system". the Glock still ran about 70% which to me is crazy. but until we PRYed the slide apart we thought wed just be replacing springs.

so watch these shops out there. they do shit so fast nowadays.

    did the same thing on my canik when i mounted the red dot, i simply used way too much "blue" , it happens, sometimes more is not enough and at times its too much, shiat happens, hence the review of work on said unit prior to use, kinda like,  putting the spare tire on the truck and not really checking the lug nuts before you drop if off jack, it happens

    Thanks for the heads up.  I assume factory cuts are probably OK?    :hmm

    I've had slides milled at ATEI and purchased Norso slides.  Both worked great but you don't want amateur hour for that kind of stuff.  I know how dangerous I've been with the best of intentions and a dremmel.   :facepalm

    I personally know Doug from ATEI, been to his house & more than one pro 2A rally with; good guy who has YEARS of experience. His wife is a very sweet lady that has stood by him & the insane hours he works turning out fine gun mods for customers all over the USA.

    I would never try, or ask someone else to try, cutting up a slide for this purpose.

    Several handguns are factory ready for such additions, and one of them is something I'd especially want. I already have the Ruger American Pistol 9 Pro.

    The new Competition model has just that capacity.

    Same changeable grip insert, same magazines too; just like my PC 9 Carbine.

    Right now, I'm wondering if that 5" Competition barrel, the different stippled grip inserts, and those sights could also be swapped into my basic RAP 9 Pro.

    Not lookin' to be in a gunfight, but if you find yourself mixed up in one, it might be kinda nice to have a gun...
