Can not say i am not intrigued by the Ruger 57 & LC combo, but one thing this thread gave me was more of a desire for the 22 TCM.
Pick her up yet? You decide on optic?I decided to buy it. Checked out and paid, being delivered to a local FFL I like.
Now all I need is ammo, a holster, and an RDS and I'll be ready for the mall.
Peace favor your sword,
I don't think it's shipped yet. I'll have to check with the LGS. Normally, they call me when stuff comes in.Pick her up yet? You decide on optic?
Been busy with Florida house stuff so haven't even shot mine... great having someone else doing legwork lol.
Man, PSA slacking... Yeah it is cut for shield (aka your mini sig). Swamp fox and Holosun (407/507) should fit too from what I have read, just don't have an extra of those sitting around lol. Or you could just buy a Shield sight... but they are pricey...I don't think it's shipped yet. I'll have to check with the LGS. Normally, they call me when stuff comes in.
As for optics, I'm unsure. I like the Sig on my Mossy but I keep hearing good things about Swampfox and I think one of those will fit.
Of course I don't have any ammo yet either.

I agree that the NUWA Pro sounds very interesting. I might go ahead and get that one based on some of the reviews I've seen.Black is a maybe - read some decent things on it.
I have a 6moa Venom, I know the Viper was 'supposedly" made more for pistols but I hate the rear locking screws, PITA if you have a co-witnessed rear sight.Well since I'm part of the cool kids too...
I really like the 3moa Vortex Venom I have on the G20, and I also had the opportunity to shoot the heck out of the Viper as well. The Viper is made for pistols. Thinner, lower profile, bigger dot, etc but the battery cover is underneath. So you have to take it off the pistol to change it. That's why I went with the Venom. The Venom's battery is right on top. I read a bunch of issues about the battery cover, but I guess I got a good one or applied some sort of mechanical wizardry because the cover was not an issue at all.
Yeah, they are giving those away at the moment. Thinking maybe a new model coming out? I go one (odg version) with a grip module (also odg) for my 365x. Think I got it for $79 + shipping.I just put the basic Sig Romoeo zero on my P365, it was $120 at Sportsmans Warehouse. It's all polymer. They have a lot of RDS's on sale right now.
I ordered a Swampfox Justice for the XDM, about $200, I was looking at Holosun solar, but the were at least $80 more, and I can buy a lot of batteries for that.
Yeah, a circle dot with that small footprint for $100ish is very tempting to try...I agree that the NUWA Pro sounds very interesting. I might go ahead and get that one based on some of the reviews I've seen.

I'm not much of a glock fan, but I like that slide!I have a 6moa Venom, I know the Viper was 'supposedly" made more for pistols but I hate the rear locking screws, PITA if you have a co-witnessed rear sight.
To me the Venom IS the choice for pistols, especially with the 6 moa dot version. The viper is perfect for a 45 deg offset back up sight, it's not a primary so no big deal pulling it off to change the battery and its small so doesn't add a lot of weight to your AR.
It's not always the smallest sight that is best on a pistol my 34 has a monster on there but it's a nice big sight picture with a 3 moa dot. This pistol isn't made for SD per se but I still love it. That is a Bushnell First Strike 2.0 Reflex Sight.

No worries. I took care of it.Sheesh, I don't know why that posted so many times. My internet is sketchy here, I was just pleased that vispers pic loaded at all.
Cool Setup, I have a G34 with only a mod or 2, wondering if you'd do a post on that or at least talk about it! I'm wanting to add a threaded barrel at least, and likely an rds with one of them dovetail thingys 🤩
No problem Mole!!Cool Setup, I have a G34 with only a mod or 2, wondering if you'd do a post on that or at least talk about it! I'm wanting to add a threaded barrel at least, and likely an rds with one of them dovetail thingys 🤩
I considered doing the RMR cut myself but I didn't have a backup slide in case I fudged it.No problem Mole!!
OK so things I modified.
1. Slide is a Zev, KC Eusebio limited. Cut specifically for Bushnell First Strike (BFS) 2.0 Red Dot.
2. Apex Trigger/bar/connector/FP Safety.
3. Blacklist Magwell
Otherwise it is stock
Do me a favor, you can use that dovetail thingy OR send your OEM slide to Lonewolf - every Christmas they have a 50% off optics cut machining. Usually $120 ish so $60.00 plus shipping there (they pay return shipping) Get an RMR cut and call it a day!!!
Those dovetail mounts cost $50.00 ish at least and getting your slide milled is just better. Don't pay for re-coating the machined section, you just gonna cover it with an optic or cover plate anyways.
It's cheap enough to send out and get done when they are on sale. RMR seems like the easiest cut though.I considered doing the RMR cut myself but I didn't have a backup slide in case I fudged it.
Edit: I still want to do the long-slide and barrel conversion then buy an 80% and build a "ghost" frame
