I got mine with the M18 when I traded my X-VTAC with R1P for it, so I couldn't tell you. I normally order from Primary Arms or PSA during sales.

Works for iron too.  The gun either points where you are looking or it doesn't..

I somewhat concur on the electonics issues, I had a first gen and occasionally it would just shut off on me.  

Other than that it did run reliably for about 11K rounds on a slide ride 9mm.  I ended up selling it for cheap just because I figured I should get rid of it before it died permanently.

No experience with gen 2 but I know a few guys running it that like it just fine and no problems.

I've got 6k on my second gen and it's been perfect. Also, it's my EDC.

Doesn't help a bunch since they're a bit more expensive.

Check Proven Outfitters they are normally very good on sig stuff price wise. I like the R1P no it’s not a RMR durability wise but it serves a ton of people everyday. It’s also extremely clear with a generous window.

According to Sig, the Romeo1 Pro and Delta Point Pro fit it.  I*assume* the Sig M17 (optic sight) will also fit; but at +$850, that isn't happening.

I don't know what the M17/M18 pistol optic mounting standard is other than R1P or DPP.  I know there is at least four of them.

The Romeo M17 will not fit a commercial M17/18. The bolt pattern is different between the commercial M17/18 and the Mil-spec pistols

Don't sleep on using a Holosun SCS 320, direct fit even on an M18, enclosed, RMR-ish in window size.  There's also the RomeoX Pro if you're not fussed about enclosed emitters, it's a solid optic.  

Another option, EOTECH's EFLX is a direct fit on the M18.  Decent price point, great glass, window size and emitter, questionable durability but solid warranty.

Last but not least, a filler plate (not to be confused with a mounting plate) opens up the option of RMS-c/Holosun K-footprint optics (that includes the enclosed EPS lineup).  It's still direct screw mount to the slide using the DPP holes, the plate just fills the gaps fore and aft. Here's one of my 320's with a CHPWS filler plate and the full-size EPS.

You can also get a filler plate (NOT an adapter plate, with a filler plate the optic is still directly mounted to the slide) to allow the use of RMR footprint optics on most of Sig’s Romeo/DPP footprint slide cuts. You just need to make sure your slide cut is the one that also includes threaded holes for the RMR, which most of their new optics-ready pistols do

Here's a 507K mounted on my X-Compact RXP, with the old style DPP-only slide cut, no RMR holes, also using a CHPWS filler plate.  It came from the factory with a Romeo1 Pro, which is a more than decent optic, but bulky.  This was my AIWB EDC until I got an X-Macro, so the 507K was a better fit against my tummy.  



And I may have posted this in the thread already, but here's some more full-size EPS on Sig action, also with the same filler plate, on a P226.

I’ve decided to red dot all the things but need an inexpensive option to get a Glock slide milled. I don’t need cool guy serrations or cerakote otherwise I’d just send it to Maple Leaf but $180+ is a bit steep for this gun.

Who is the go to for an optics cut and no refinish?

Believe it or not, CHPWS has very reasonable milling prices and a decent 2-3 week turnaround time.

I had a PDP 1.0 converted to 2.0 and then the entire slide Cerakoted for like $120 all in, and that included me shipping to them, and them doing the slide disassembly/reassembly (I'm not lazy and a PDP slide is easy to tear down, I just figured if there were tolerance issues with the Ceracoating, they'd fix it then and there).  

Turned out great, back inside 3 weeks.  They even used Loctite on the front sight when they reinstalled it.  :)

Optic cut on a non-optic is a bit higher at $99 before options.

CHPWS quoted me 2-3 weeks, finished in over 9, lied three times for the reason it was taking so long and sent it back with no loctite and barely hand-tight after saying they'd loctite the screws.

YMMV

I wouldn’t let CHPWS mill my kid’s nerf gun.
Link Posted: 9/27/2023 9:09:27 PM EDT
[Last Edit: November5] [#23]
It took CHPWS over a year to mill my slide.  They claimed it was my fault for not answering calls and emails that they never made or sent.  They needed to know what kind of cut I wanted on my slide, even though I plainly ordered the exact cut I wanted.  The automated email confirmation very plainly stated that the order was for a 1911 slide with a Holosun 507K cut.  They needed to know if I wanted a Holosun K, Shield RMS, or Trijicon RMRcc cut.

My next 1911 slide went to Green Tick Tactical, and he did take longer than quoted, but that was due to the refinishing and was still far less than a year.  Cut also came out perfect.

I think a combination of occasional grip inconsistencies and shifts of focus from target to trying to find the dot in the optic are the issues that are causing me to not be 100% confident in my presentation yet.  I'm just about there though.  First cold draw from concealment of a morning with no warmup is pretty consistently on target now using a light switch across the room as an aiming point.

You shouldn’t be shifting focus away from the target. Don’t look at the dot. Focus on the target, move the dot over your preferred POI, pull trigger

Jagerwerks did my first RDS mill/ceracoat while I was on a deployment. My wife actually handled everything and they were very helpful to her, especially since she wasn't as familiar with what was happening. They patiently answered her questions when she asked. They did a really good job and got it back quickly.

It might be a while, I think CHPWS is the only name in town that mills Walther slides and I’m kind of put off with all the negative reviews they’ve been getting.  I carry appendix and the striker indicator at the back of the slide is one of the main reasons I picked the Walther over something like the G43X.

Are there any other shops able to mill Walther slides, specifically the PPS M2?

I don't think I worded that very well.  I'm not shifting focus on purpose, it just happens occasionally still.  I'm trying to train that away along with my occasional grip inconsistencies.  

I will say, drifire practice with a red dot really helps make problems glaringly obvious.  Seems like a great training tool along with the shooting speed/accuracy benefits.  

I started down this road in no hurry and knew it would take time and dedication to get it figured out.  I've read about people on here buying a pistol and dot and then selling them off after a couple of range trips because they're "faster with irons."  I think anyone who hasn't dedicated at least a month or two of daily drifire before giving up on red dots is doing themselves a great disservice.

I had issues with doing the same the painters tape trick showed to me by Sig at the optics instructor course coupled with moving and shooting drills solidified its end.

Just as an FYI, Primary Arms quite frequently runs sales of $100 off or better on the SRO.

Looks like a nice gun!

This isn’t directed at you personally, but I really don’t get the point of putting the shortest comp possible on a gun that’s also got the longest WML bezel on the market attached to the rail. Why not get a longer more effective comp since it won’t increase the pistol’s OAL anyway

Its dimensionally with the comp a G17, so it fits in my g17 holsters.

Holster fitment is why I removed my comp. It wouldn't work with an M17-sized Safariland and my M18 with comp.

Take the plug out.  I run the longer Herrington XL comp just fine in a Safariland, 6 series and 7 series.

Can’t speak for everyone but one of the benefits I see to a longer light then slide combo is the fact it offers some stand off for close retention work to have less of a chance of out of battery failure. You also have the versatility in a shorter configuration you wouldn’t necessarily have in a longer. I could see having a TLR-7 and a TLR-1 for instance but only having the shorter comp. Would allow for more comfortable carrying then a G34 length gun if you wanted to slap the TLR-7 on and carry appendix for instance or you could run the TLR1 and have a better light for HD/Duty use while always having the benefits of the comp.

I did. It still doesn't fit and locks the gun out of battery if you try and force it.

This is an exaggerated pic. I'll get a couple better ones...

ETA:

Without comp in an M17-compatible Safariland

Without barrel plugs and with comp. I had to force it in and now it's stuck. Which was the problem before. It was not locking in with the comp.
