Default Glock 43x non-mos, which RMR should I go with?

Looking to get my 43x cut for an RMR. Any recommendations on which RMR to go with? 507k, RMRcc, and the RMSc?

I get a lot of people telling me to go with the 507k.

RMRcc needs an adapter plate but I think that's for the MOS version?

RMSc I've seen some bad reviews on this but as far as looks wise, it looks well designed..

Any suggestions?

RMRcc is as long as an RMR and doesn’t leave much room for back up iron sights. This could be relevant.

507k x2 is gtg on the G48MOS...I recommend this over the 43 and if a defensive handgun, definitely over milling "glock perfection".

The southern armorer on ebay has the tall sights...but I am not convinced they are the right solution as the rear is a bit obstructive.

Shooting a dot will make you better at shooting with irons, and eventually with practice you'll be able to do a target focus with both eyes open even with irons. I'm cross dominant as well and it has helped immensely.

Yep I get it and IMO the CA roster is a clear violation of the 2A, Interstate Commerce Clause among others currently litigated.

My point is many manufacturers have stated if you take their product and alter it...e.g. milling the slide, installing non-OEM parts, non-OEM magazines/baseplates...they will not support you when it or the $h-t goes "boom"...their words and not mine or my opinion.

So...if it is a handgun for protecting/preserving/defending life...keep it stock, train with it often and keep it well maintained.

Using the https://chpws.com/ optics plates on the G48, the RMRcc one is so thick and raises the sight too-high IMO. Another reason for the 507 or RMR.

Considering the off roster prices, why would you want to add a 48 to the collection when you could just buy the 48 upper and slap it on the 43X frame for a fraction of the price?

I see what you're saying and your 100% right. I also agree, it is definitely a violation of the 2A. Thanks for the insight, I appreciate it.

I’d vote Holosun 507k. Just keep your eyes peeled for them on sale. I got my 507c GR X2 for $252 from KYgunco.com. They might have a good deal on one.

The Sig Romeo Zero and the Shield RMSC would be the only red dots I’d say stay away from. The sig is made of polymer, both the body and the lens. The battery life is terrible. Its a good range dot, but I didn’t feel comfortable putting any force on the thing.

RMR is a specific Trijicon dot sight.

The 48 MOS pocket is just a shield optic pocket, which is very similar to the Holosun 507k footprint, but the recoil lugs are taller. I would have the 43x slide milled for a 507k and then it will fit any variant of Shield that optic footprint.

As for what to put on it, I vote either a 507k or 407k. I prefer the crosshairs on the 507k, and have a half dozen Holosun optics with it. The 407k is just as reliable and very inexpensive, but loses the crosshairs retical option. The 407k is in the same ballpark price as some of the cheaper offbrand optics like Swampfox or the new Springfield stuff, but worlds better quality-wise, and those other optins just have a single dot anyway, so no disadvantage there.

You're not wrong, but if you're worried about the slide failing and needing warranty support, it's probably not an ideal defensive handgun anyway.


Never seen or heard of an optic cut from a reputable supplier causing a failure in the slide.

Thank you for the insight, much appreciated. Going to go with the 507k.

All you need is a g48 slide. Same frame as G43x

I wasn't aware I could legally purchase an upper if they're available or register it. I'll look for one on here.

What are the pro's with the 48 if you don't mind me asking?

- Other then the longer barrel, better recoil.

You can try finding a slide on gunbroker as well. Only the frame is considered a firearm so youíre free to buy and sell slides as you please
