Got my CHPWS plate Thursday and I’ll parrot what others are saying, it seems pretty weak, the installation didn’t give me the impression of bombproof.

I’ve never been a fan of mounting multiple pieces together when you can direct mount, so I’m offloading my MOS for a standard gun + machining.

Plus now I see the owner seems like a total dick, I feel bad for supporting them.

I wouldn't risk our reputation by spewing BS that I pulled out of thin air. Guys out in the field shooting 30K+ rounds a year on MRDS equipped guns are reporting what I'm saying. That's not how we've built Primary Machine up to what it is now and we never will. You don't have to accept it. I'm ok with that. ;)

Bruce I’m not questioning whether the mounting system is better or worse. I’m questioning whether it would make a difference in the life of the optic and how anyone could determine that it’s one system or the other or anything more than mere coincidence or even prejudice against one system.

By the way what your turn around on milling Glock slides right now? I need mine done. I worry too much to continue t carry my Glock 19 mos even though I had to drill the damn screws out to get it off to put this damn new plate you all talked me into. Red loctite is a bit too much I guess. 500 plus rounds and that bitch wasn’t about to budge. Twisted up about 5 Allen keys trying to get it off before I said hell with it and drilled it.

If I’d just waited a day or two I would have just left it on since you guys figured out its subpar at best.

So, while I will not post the entire email, as it was lengthy,  Buck does seem to have had an epiphany....

There have been design changes to the V3 plate, most notably with the front recoil indexing posts.  These have been rendered complete and "round" so they can absorb more of the recoil impulse thereby relieving stress from the mounting posts.  Unfortunately it is still not being made of steel, or 7075 aluminum, but it's a step.

Continue to write and provide valid input from a professional perspective, and we may get somewhere here.

This is how the message was ended...

"Sorry and I appreciate the heads up.  Seldom do we get real input from real dudes and I apologize for any perceived sarcasm I might have blended into a response.  The internet is full of gun expert design engineers :)"

I may take him up on the offer to send a new mount to try, but i am still of the opinion, the mounting screws need to be larger (at least 5-40 x 3/8) and it should be made from stronger materials, but it's a step.

Ah you played the duty card and became a "Real Dude" in his mind. He's worried about the internet being full of gun expert design engineers, I'm more worried about his incompetency in designing a mount for a 1.2 oz sight. Hell I'm a Chef, I work with noodles an aioli, and I could get this correct the first time...No V1, V2, V3. Does that make me an internet design expert? Hmmm. I might add that to my resume  I could go as far to say that I was the one who suggested the full round lugs.

Picked up the g19 today. Installed the SICO barrel, gl429 sights, x300v and rmr hrs on the CH plate.

First impressions are the ch supplied screws for mounting the rmr were TIGHT going into the threaded post, but they did go in. I haven’t fired a shot with it yet, but it seems like it’s going to work nicely, and I’m happy with it so far. The only improvement I can see would be to make this out of steel, but I think this will work and be reliable. Time will tell

She will see plenty of rounds through her before I’ll rely on it. Same with any other gun.
In following this thread, it seems the issues have not been with the RMR plate. There has actually been good feedback for the RMR plate in this thread. Unless I’ve missed some, the issues I’ve seen come up have been with the dpp plate.

Screws need to thread through the post to the bottom of the plate without touching or at the most slightly touching the slide underneath.
Link Posted: 5/7/2019 12:11:24 PM EST
Can anyone post pics of the screws and the plate attached.  I'd like to see the interface and if they come close to passing all the way to the end.  You can't use bigger screws, since the post must pass thru the RMR.  Bigger screws means thinner material for the posts.

I sent my mount back this morning as well as sent out my slide for the Agency AOS conversion from the MOS.  I'm not looking forward to the long wait (10-12 weeks) but I know the cut will be right, and the plate (steel) will hold up to just about anything.

But then you're raising the height of the optic on a system that is already considerably higher than ideal.

I'm not an engineer, but what if you did a half height boss and a shoulder bolt? Would that be any stronger or the worse of both options?

... do they even make shoulder bolts that small?

I just don’t see how the threaded posts do any good at all when they’re that thin.  Sure, there’s more thread engagement but the walls are so thin that you can’t torque the screw any tighter which defeats the whole purpose of more thread engagement.  Am I missing something?  They’re literally calling for 6 in/lbs of torque.  I doubt anyone here has a torque driver with a setting that low.  Maybe that’s intentional so they can claim improper installation is the reason for failure.  For comparison, the factory, steel MOS plate is a similar thickness with no threaded post and you can safely torque the screws to 15 in/lbs.

Again, thanks for posting the pic.  What if you dove tail the RMR and base?  Ala Romeo 1.  Sig does that to the P320 series and the other guns for it.  That would take care of fore and aft movement.  Eliminate the bosses and thread to a steel plate.  6 lbs of torque?  Wow.

Not sure how you're supposed to do 6lb of torque either. All of the "normal" torque drivers for gunsmithing I can find start at 10lb. Brownells has one listed as going as low as 6lb, but it's discontinued. There's one on Amazon that'll go that low, but it's $150.

FWIW I could not have gotten the rmr screws tight enough if I was sticking to the 6in/lb recommendation. I didn’t use a torque wrench, but I’m not a gorilla with a wrench either.

I don't know if it will help but I sent an email to Agency Arms and asked that they build an MOS mounting plate based off their AOS design that does not require having the AOS system installed, for those of us who just want to mount on our end.

Those of you thinking of selling your MOS guns, you can probably trade your MOS slide for a non-MOS slide like I did OR the AOS system looks fucking legit and they DO offer it on the GLOCK MOS handguns.

I have not even fired a shot through it yet. I will update when I do give it a work out. 4 kids and a list of projects a mile long have had me pinned down for about a year now. I’ve got a custom rifle I had built 1.5yrs ago that hasn’t seen the first round yet .

I will run a few hundred through the 19 here shortly though, as it will be going on a trip at the end of June with me. Will post an update when I do.

Another 300 rds thru my V3 plate and it’s still going strong. At 2k rds now. I still want an agency AOS to replace it but it’s going good right now.

All this talk about the weaknesses of the MOS plates seems contrary to what's being posted here...

Sounds like running the Glock MOS as designed by Glock won't get you kilt in da streetz.   I don't know.

Exactly ^^.  I bought the correct Trijicon plate in case the CH plate doesn’t work out(I’ve got no reason to be believe it won’t). I think this will collect dust in the parts bin

An update, I finally went out yesterday and shot 3 mags out of my 19.5 mos with ch plate and rmr hrs.  Zeroed the dot, and it held fine in the three mags I shot. I plan on shooting another 500-1000 before I fully trust it, but I really feel it will work great, rmr screws are basically flush with the bottom of the plate.. I like it.

As a side note the GL429 Sights are perfect for this set up.

Enlighten us on the "correct" Trijicon plate.

@DOE  it’s the Trijicon RMR mount kit # AC32064.  This was covered on page 1 of this thread. It includes a sealing plate and the correct length screws for use with the mos plate.

I have thousands of rounds through two of their RMR plates with no issues (I believe it may be an older variant since I've had them for a while).  I originally used them with the sealing plates and recently removed the plates as I felt they werent terribly necessary with the wider plate.  With that said I don't really rack my optic off stuff but they eat a steady supply of NATO ammo.
