Not entirely true. The Holosun 507c sits on a RMR footprint. So you can mount an RMR or a Holosun on the same plate. One thing I did was ordered the mounting plate from CH precision Weapon Systems. They're much better, have longer threads in the barrel nuts, & the correct screws & length. Won't have to worry about backing out or cracking.Also Brownell's sells a stripped slide already milled for the RMR, but you'll have to buy a blank slide for the Holosun and have it milled
Depends on if cost is a factor or not.Glock 17 Gen 4 owner here. Looking at adding the Trijicon RMR 3.25 or Holosun HS507C. With a standard model, would you recommend getting it milled or buying a Glock stripped slide?
That's good info. Thanks for the link.As a side note, here is a link to sights that share the same footprint in case you want to think about another sight in the future.
While the Shield sights are primarily in a group of their own except for Leupold Delta Point Pro, they do offer adapters to fit multiple other mounting patterns.
Your absolutely right on the RDS optics. But as the saying goes.... you get what you pay for.I've bought new slides online for 100$ or so optic ready and some on ebay they work great haven't had any problems. Left more $ for a nicer optic, which I didn't spend. My last was a swap fox king slayer. Fantastic optic for the $ in my opinion. Trijicon makes some great plane Jane sights that are like 30 something dollars. There steel and the dots are bright and pronounced, everything you need and nothing you don't. Unless you're kicking down doors in the middle east or rounding up MS13 members save a few bucks and put it towards a new build or buy another gun
I think the holosun are great optics. I own a few of themYour absolutely right on the RDS optics. But as the saying goes.... you get what you pay for.
It all depends on what ones intended purpose is. I chose a Holosun 507c for my G 40. I look for the features offered not the name. Could I have gone with something battle tested.....yes I could of. I would hope that the money spent on a build would merit a RDS of reputable quality.
