Hi all,

I just picked up my first glock 19 and of course I am instantly looking to upgrade it. I want to put a Rmr sight on it and am looking for some advice on where to get my slide cut in the Southern California or Arizona area. If anyone has some tips or can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Thanks

Are you gonna recoat it after? Want the rear sight in front or behind the rmr?

Not sure about recoat. Rear sight behind the Rmr

They are not based in AZ or CA but are the best in terms of quality from reviews on the P&S from endusers that do work with their glocks for a living.

Hi all,

I just picked up my first glock 19 and of course I am instantly looking to upgrade it ...

Rookie mistake in my opinion. Put 1200 rounds down range with it and then we'll compare notes. My Glock 19 Gen 3 is Glock Perfection indeed.

After 35+ years of upgrading handguns, revolvers and 1911s and such. The most important thing is getting quality trigger time and a lot of it. :oji:

I had my Glock 19 slide milled for a RMR by Mark of L&M Gunworks. Easy and painless transaction, mailed the slide and had it back a week later perfectly milled and setup with a RMR. Top notch guy to deal with.

Glock itself upgraded to optics support (MOS) for free states. It would just be catching up. Even if OP is a new shooter, starting with optics does not somehow hamper trigger control. It might even help by removing potential excuses of having low-tech sights.

Also worth considering are those rear sight replacement dovetail plates that are compatible with all major optics. Especially if you don't want or care about co-witness. ~$25.

Thank you all for the input. I have put about 1500 rounds through it. When I said just picked it up I meant 2 months ago.

I will look into each of the companies.

Thanks.

For a few dollars more than custom work, you can probably get a pre-drilled/cut RMR slide from Lone Wolf.

Or not. Nm

Bump,

Any more input?

Op is this your first pistol? What is the purpose for its use? If SD/HD, you don't want to dump money into a weapon that will be taken if you have to use it. Also by making it more of a killing machine, is not a good idea.

@REDdawn6

No I have a Px4 Storm and M&P shield (for summer carry).

Yes I am willing to dump some money into it. I will likely carry it when I have larger clothes on during the winter and use it for rapid response training.

I don't know but good luck with your project!

Off topic, how do you like that Px4? I have always liked how they felt in my hand but never shot one yet...

I was very happy with the custom work that Brazen Firearms (https://www.brazenfirearms.com/collections/custom-machining/products/rmr-milling-install?variant=20897555267) did for me. They beat their time estimate. The work and finish came out great as well.

Love the Px4. Extremely low recoil. I actually have two. A 9mm for my wife and .45 for myself. I have probably put more than 5,000 rounds through it and never jammed.

Good to hear. I need to get a rental and shoot one soon. Thanks

Mark was who I sent my 17 side out to a few years ago. Excellent work in my opinion and timely.

With SSE gone I'm putting more money in the guns I already have with upgrades.

Bought Suarez slide with RMR07.

Received it on Wednesday and went to the range.

I was so happy I immediately called Mike at onesourcetactical to praise their service and product.

Told him my only regret was not getting an RMR sooner.

Why did I go this direction? Simple: keeping it fun.

For the last 2-3 years with the constant threat of losing more and more gun rights from Sacramento, ammo shortage, and the scalper prices of off rooster handguns....shooting because less fun for me.

Again....I wished I had Chen the RMR sooner.

I had the guys at Glockmeister cut & refinish my G20 and I have a dual illum RMR on it - fantastic setup IMO, love it. I'm getting old and I shoot a lot better with an optic.
