The sights are standard polymer because most people will eventually replace them with something taller depending on their needs.

Yes. I just figured they'd at least be a usable height for optics.

My police trade in 45 mos came with ameriglos. Really good sights. Sucks that they didn’t work with the rmr.

After shipping and transfer its within a few dollars of a brand new in stock model at my LGSs, they should lower the price a tad. Even if they are unissued, that doesn’t make them brand new in the box, they should be $500-$550. I’m sure they’d still be making a nice profit at that price.

Probably cause they are direct milled mos. With the 620 that a regular mos goes for, you still need to buy a decent plate since the glock ones suck.

My issued 45MOS-5 from last year came with polymer sights.  I stuck raised all black Ameriglos on mine.
My personal 45 (non-MOS, it was cut for rmr by maple leaf) has Ameriglo Hackathorns on it.

Ok, missed that part, should’ve watched the video. I assumed these were standard MOS guns.

Are those irons usable through the optic? They look damn low.

Optical illusion?

The bottom one was my personal gun before I had it milled. I just kept the Ameriglos I had. You can barely see the tips if the optic fails.
The top one is my issued weapon. I put tall Ameriglos on them. They are usuable if the optic fails. It sits in the lower third.
I did not want taller ones. Some guys put taller ones on and I didn’t like the obstructed view.

Found the box. The ones on my duty gun are Ameriglos GL-429. XL height.

Factory RMR cut plus glock performance trigger solves 87% of my problems with Glock.

Fuck it, I'm in.

@Bryan_Aim since the Colorado government is run by tyrannical pillow biters, will I get some goofy 15 rounder or at least a bit of a discount for missing out on the 3 mags?

They can be legally shipped to my FFL by the way. And what happens after that, well it ain't y'alls concern or liability.

Would rather have a cut that more precisely fits an RMR witbout what looks like .100 gap to the front and rear of the optic.
Link Posted: 9/14/2023 9:17:55 PM EST
[#25]
Yes the gaps are unsightly. My maple leaf cut fits tight. But I guess Glock did it their way because of variances in rmrs?

I know maple leaf redid my glock 31 cut when i changed from an rm02 to rm06.

I posted awhile back closeups of the gaps sometime last year when we switched to the 45mos-5

I’m not back to work till Saturday so I can’t do current close up pics of my duty gun.
Only at about 4k rounds in the past year. But zero is still holding. We finally got more ammo in so I expect to shoot more this winter.

Gotcha, thanks.

I went with the GL-411 1XL set (.315 front- tritium/.394 blacked rear), lower 1/3 on my G45.

Similar on my G17 MOS but I can't recall the irons #'s. Those sit more ~lower 1/4.

I just wish the cut was tighter to the RMR.  I know they’re rare, but I really don’t like the gap around the RMR.

a little gappy, but I'm past 4k rounds with no issues on my duty gun. our practice ammo is win 9mm nato spec.

here's my maple leaf cut on my 45. you can see it's a much tighter fit.




the reason we went to the 45MOS-5 was because we couldn't get any 357sig ammo in and our chief forbade slide milling so we had dovetail plates on our 31s.  So the 45MOS-5 was the answer for us.

When you go to put it in the cart, it tells you that there's an illegal Communist 15 mag restriction... But AIM lets you order the pistol. CO FFLs are allowed to send/receive the mags and they are allowed to sell or distribute mag repair parts.

I have more faith in solid metal than and extra piece and two more screws. Honestly though I’m not worried about the 45MOS with FCD I just wanted a milled and this happened to pop up the same day. It was a sign from above.

I do wonder if the FCD plate will fit these those since the extra material is removed and the second set of holes are there. Once I pick this up I’ll check it.

The indexing lugs would obviously need removed(unless the MOS has them, I can’t remember) but they look close. The hole locations will need checked.

I don't think the FCD plate would fit this?
Isn't the FCD plate cut for the MOS?  Wouldn't the recoil bosses interfere?

I know the CHPWS plate I had for my MOS gun would not fit the MOS-5.

Unsure about hole locations but removing the recoil lugs along with additional pocket slop would be a deal killer for me.

Agreed, might as well have a regular slide milled at that point. The MOS plates also have a channel that runs down the middle.

Correct.


In theory the factory plates are a great concept, especially with the option of like a dozen optic choices. The plates themselves are lacking as are the variances in slide cuts.

I'm sure it's difficult to mass produce and accommodate the slew of manufacturers' optics w/o people having difficulties with fitment.

There's got to be some room for play there in order to keep things "generic".
