Leupold DeltaPoint PRO Purchase Leupold DeltaPoint PRO here

Price now includes drilling the rear sights on the combat cut version to allow adjustment of the red dot sight (when ordered at the same time).

*Please note* 

 

  • Position Notes: Combat is with standard rear dovetail. Combat with Leupold Rear utilizes Leupold's rear iron sight. Race has no backup sights. Race w/ front dovetail uses a standard dovetail in front of the optic. 
  • In order to co-witness with the Leupold DeltaPoint Pro's, the following sights are the ONLY compatible suppressor height sights:
    • LEU-DPPROIRONS - DeltaPoint Pro rear sight with Ameriglo front sight
    • AME-GL507 - with a height of .407" front, and .507 rear

  • Due to the size of the Gen4  9mm, .40, and 357 models, a slight modification to the safety plunger is required




Trijicon RMR's Purchase Trijicon RMRs here

  • Housed in rugged aluminum, the RMR is extremely tough yet lightweight

Burris FastFire III Purchase Burris FastFire III 3MOA here   Purchase Burris Fast Fire III 8MOA w/Pic Mount here

  • The FF3 uses a light sensor in the front of the optic.  When melted, the auto sensitivity mode may not work well and if using a front dovetail mount, the sensor will be blocked completely.
  • Gen4 Glock 9/40/357SIG OEM slides may not have enough room between the dovetail and breechface for a proper combat cut. When the slide arrives, we'll measure it and if it's too tight, you'll be able to either do a race mount, or front dovetail mount. 
*Due to the size of the 9mm, .40, and 357 models, a slight modification to the safety plunger is required


Vortex Venom Purchase Vortex Venom here

  • The Venom uses the same footprint as the Burris FF3 so it works in all the same applications. 
  • Glock 9/40/357SIG OEM slides may not have enough room between the dovetail and breechface for a proper combat cut. When the slide arrives, we will measure it and if it's too tight, you'll be able to either do a race mount, or front dovetail mount. 
  • The depth of the cut may require a modification to the safety plunger.  We will perform the modification here free of charge, but if the safety plunger is changed afterwards, the new one will require modification.
*Due to the size of the Gen4 9mm, .40, and 357 models, a slight modification to the safety plunger is required



Vortex Viper Purchase Vortex Viper here

The Viper has its adjustment locking screws located in the back of the housing. Price now includes drilling the rear sights on the combat cut version to allow adjustment of the red dot sight (when ordered at the same time).

Vortex Razor Purchase Vortex Razor Red Dot 3 MOA here    Purchase Vortex Razor Red Dot 6 MOA here

The Vortex Razor is too large to fit on 9/40/357 slides, however the 10/45 slides are wide enough to accept the Razor.


C-More Micro Red Dot 

Most C-More sights can only be done as a race mount on 10mm or 45ACP slides. 9/40/357 slides are too narrow for most C-More's.

 

C-More STS-2

The STS-2 is small enough to fit on both large and small frame pistols in combat or race mounting positions. Gen5 slides will work with race or race with front dovetail positions only. 


Shield RMS Purchase Shield Mini 4MOA here

  • The Shield RMS optic can only be done as a race mount on the S&W Shield slide, as the rear of the optic has rear irons built in.  G42 slide is too narrow for the Shield RMS optic.  
  • All other slides - we suggest race mount only due to included rear irons.  However, a combat cut is available if suppressor sights are used.

 

 

 

ADE Advanced Optics RD3-0068
  • 9/40/357 slides must use a race cut, combat is unavailable. 
  • 10/45 slides can have both race or combat cuts. 
  • We do not offer race with front dovetail on this optic due to it's front facing on/off switch
 

Notes on Glock OEM Slides:

  • Combat Cuts on Gen5 Slides - Due to position of the safety plunger, this cut is NOT available for Vortex Venom, Burris FastFire3 and Delta Point Pro sights.  However, we can do a Race cut with forward dovetail.

  • Machining for an optic on a Glock OEM slide results in exposed metal that is prone to rust. We offer a discounted rate for Cerakote when bundled with machining. You can also refinish it in Flash Nitride which can be found on the refinishing page.  


Notes on specific iron sights:

XS Suppressor Sights
We cannot drill adjustment screw holes in XS suppressor sights. This affects Burris FF2, Leupold DeltaPoint PRO's, and any other optics that have screws in the rear body.

TruGlo 231G1MW (MOS Height)
These sights will not work with any standard combat cut mounting. They will work with race cuts with forward dovetails however. 


Important Disclaimers:
  • No returns or refunds are issued on custom services
  • Price does not include the optic
  • We can do a slide melt on an OEM Glock 41 and 17L for an additional $40 due to having to fill the large cavity before machining and lead time increases to 2-3 weeks. Customer must add labor item to the cart. CLICK HERE FOR LABOR CHARGE
  • We do not offer this service on Glock 42 or 43 (with the exception of the Shield optic on the G43 and S&W Shield), as the slide is too narrow
  • Turn around time is 1 week for slide melts and 2-3 weeks for slide melts for 17L and 41 due to cavity fill
  • Glock OEM slides are known to have variable dovetail locations.  If your factory dovetail is too far forward it will NOT accommodate a combat cut using some larger optics. You will be notified if there is a problem
