COMPATIBILITY: This optic cut is compatible with most other slide mods we offer, see specific model details below.
GLOCK (All models except slimline [G42,43,etc.], G41 and G17L)
mounting package mounts a Vortex Viper only, forward of the rear iron
sight on Glocks. Our mounting process inlets the optic into the slide
sufficiently to allow co-witnessing with suppressor sites which we
strongly recommend. Our trials have shown us that placing a red dot on
top of your pistol is NOT like placing a red dot on an AR platform. If
you want to find that dot fast, you need irons to guide you for speed.
We have irons for sale in the Triggers and Sights section. The front and
rear wall of the inlet will be cut to match the optic perfectly, as
well as bosses at the forward index points, thereby providing additional
stabilization/locating points. If you need us to install/change your
iron sites, or just disassemble/reassemble your slide, please add the
armorer fee to your shopping cart, that will cover the sites swap. Of
course we will need the sites if you're not purchasing them from us....
If you're purchasing new irons, they must be suppressor sights to be
tall enough to co-witness. This machining will expose raw steel which we
recommend refinishing to prevent oxidation/rusting. We offer Cerakote
and PVD options separately.
SMITH & WESSON (M&P 9/40/9c/40c)
can mount your Vortex Viper on your S&W M&P's using the same
style inlet mount as described above in the Glock section. The original
rear sight dovetail is however eliminated and we place a new iron sight
dovetail behind the optic which will accept a Glock style iron sight. We
recommend visiting the 10-8 sights website to see a nice combination of
Glock rear iron sight and M&P front iron sight that will cowitness.
We offer these sights in our Triggers & Sights section. Keep in
mind the optic is mounted such that your striker safety plunger and
spring assembly will be captured by the optic similar in fashion to how
it's captured by the rear iron sight on the OEM slide.
CZ (P-07, P-09, P10c)
can mount your Vortex Viper on your CZ model listed above using the
same cut technique described in the Glock section above. On the P-07 and
09, the optic must be placed all the way to the rear, thus obliterating
the OEM rear sight dovetail and using the optic to capture the safety
plunger, similar in fashion to the S&W M&P models. We cut a new
Glock style iron sight dovetail forward of the optic on P-07's and 09's.
We offer a new iron sight combination as well as the Trijicon mounting
plate to prevent water accessing the battery compartment on these
models. On the P-10c, we are able to mount the RMR forward enough to
provide a rear mounted iron sight dovetail. Again we offer the
appropriate sights to cowitness through the RMR on the 10c. Select from
the options above.
have yet to cut a Trijicon RMR inlet on many other makes than Glock,
S&W or CZ. We will be happy to consider other options such as HK and
Sig. However these are on a case by case basis and armorer's fees may
be different. We require prior contact and approval before accepting
other slides. Please contact us via email first.
