I'll be ordering my second FCD plate today from... somewhere. First one I got used off ebay, sorry.  

Wife liked shooting my G20 with the RMR so much we traded in a couple rarely used guns for a G34 and I'm putting an SRO on it. The recommended ameriglo sights for use with the RMR on my G20 are perfect. Any recommendations for blacked out sights to use with an SRO?

Looking forward to this. Have been planning to build a duplicate carry gun but my 43x has an NSA plate and RMR on it so Id have to have a 43x slide milled

For SRO, GL-811, anything with 0.365 front sight or taller.

Thank you. I went looking on your website for which one I needed and completely glossed over where it says plain as day right there which ones for the SRO

Quoted: It should, but since we don't have actual samples, we can't say for sure.  So far Trijicon has been very consistent with their data, when they say RMR footprint, I believe it.

What screws are you using?  The 6-32x3/8 screws we ship with the plate don't have thread locker applied.

I only want to know because if you're using Holosun screws, be sure to use the short set of screws the sight came with, or you can bend the plate.

Duffy,

My plate was sourced on the secondary market. I will be mounting a Holosun 407C, using the Holosun short screws as you stated.

I have an order delivering tomorrow from you with both plate to slide screws and also RMR to plate screws in case I feel foggy and want to swap sights.

All hardware that came with the plate is getting shit canned.


And thank you for the concern, at times I need all the help I can get.

Definitely. I have an RMR on my G45 currently.  Things have a tendency to get swapped around on occasion.

@Duffy

Humor me if you will?

Just to be sure I'm on the correct path..


I'll be mounting a Holosun 407C on a G17 MOS, using your OPF-G, RMR plate.

I will be using the shorter screws that came with my Holosun to mount the optic to the plate.

My inbound order consists of:

I plan to mount the plate to the slide with the M3 0.5 X 6MM screws, keeping the RMR to MOS screws as spares in the event that I switch optics at a later time.

Sound accurate?
Link Posted: 8/2/2023 8:33:31 PM EDT
[#13]
Yep that works.  M3 screws for plate to slide, those are the MOS footprint plate to slide thread pitch.

The 6-32 x 3/8 screws work with RMR, RMR HD and SRO, you can't use these on Holosun sights that have a 90 degrees countersink.  RMR and SRO use 82 degrees, inch pattern countersink angle for the flat head screws.

Perfect, thanks for the confirmation sir.

RMR HD and RCR both aced the tactical DQ test, OPF-G, RMR plate holds both securely before the screws go in.

My conversation with Trijion evolved around the capstan screws and plates compatibility, two thread pitches will be included (6-32 and 6-40), RCR will be an issue for some of our plates that require very long screws, such as FN 509 RMR and P320 RMR plates.  RMR HD installs just like any RMR and SRO.

Once we had the engineering samples, the fit with our Glock plates was the first thing we checked, we hoped when Trijicon said RMR footprint, they would actually hold all of its dimensions, and they do.

Next we looked at the supplied 6-32 capstan screws to make sure they don't stick out of the plate (didn't expect them to), they don't.

Lastly we tested the samples on a bunch of Glocks in order to determine which heights of sights will work. To my surprise, RCR's window opening is slightly higher than both SRO and RMR HD, sights that would be adequate for co-witnessing will be too low for RCR.

Yeah, Kenzie's is one the authorized retailers right on Trijicon's website. So.. it shouldn't be long. I hope. Ordered 08/01 so we're get'n there!

I've got Night Fision suppressor height sights on now, I hope I can at least still see them at the bottom of the HD. I hope..

For RMR HD, front sight height of 0.4 and over will work well, can be as low as 0.365 but it's very low in the window.

As per Night Fision, my front is .390" blade height, rear is .395" These are installed, measured from the top of the slide.

Whatever, close enough for Gov work...

Right now with your plate and my RMR HRS the irons are ~ L1/3 (G19.5 MOS)

Looking to pick up a G26 MOS in the next couple of weeks. I’m guessing the plate for the RMR is the same for the G19?

It’s already out. Been out for a couple of weeks. I made a thread in GD and the Glock sub forum.

No rail.

Buds still has it for sale. Yes, this is the MOS version even though the pic shows a non MOS. A few people on the Glock Facebook pages have posted pictures of theirs as well.

I'd say so, it's the same plate as G17, 19, 34, 45, 47, etc. based on the width of the slide.  We'll be getting one to test.

ACRO can use a stand off device to protect its nearly flush front lens, Tangodown makes one called Lens Guard. RMR doesn't need a fence in front of it, its lens is already recessed and protected.

Work in progress, since this is a frequently asked question, we made a chart.
If you don't see the RDS or sight heights, we either don't support it, carry it, or both.

I assume that setup bypasses the rear sight built into the optic?
Link Posted: 8/30/2023 8:01:36 PM EDT
[#45]
It's for sight sets consisting of front and rear, we don't know what built in rear sights some RDS come with, and would prefer if they didn't come with any.  Romeo2 has a built in rear sight, I wish it weren't there, it can easily mislead users into using a front sight height that's incorrect for the rear sight.
Link Posted: 8/31/2023 2:19:50 PM EDT
[#46]
That’s what I was wondering.  You would think they would sell a correct height front sight for it so that you don’t have two rear sights.
