    It will be a learning curve, no doubt but I'm excited to give it a shot. And thank you, the barrel is a Stainless Steel SilencerCo.

    I believe it has the recoil bosses and has 2 screw posts. I will get a pic of the cut uploaded tomorrow.

    Ok so I misspoke, it in fact has the screw holes and what i believe are the recoil bosses towards the front. Not sure why I thought it had posts.

    Looks great. What did they charge for the machine work?

    I was thinking of having this done to my long slide kit.

    Thanks, I'm very pleased. I paid $60 shipped for uncoated. They offer an option to have it cerakoted to protect from rust etc but I love the factory slide finish so I'm going to coat the bare metal myself.

    Totally reasonable. Agreed with not having the factory finish changed. I’d mask the slide and just spray the machined area with some flat black combo primer/paint or use a cold blue and then mount the RMR.

    Thanks for taking and posting those pics Brock. I'm also looking to do to an RMR cut on my longslide and the recoil bosses are a criteria of mine. $60 is a steal, anything I've seen near that price only gets the one big pocket machined vs the detail for those bosses.

    Congrats again, good looking setup.

    That's exactly what I'm doing. I have it all masked off, I just need to apply a few coats when I get off tonight. I can update this thread when I'm finished.

    Thank you very much.

    My goal with this thread was to try and address the unknown variables pertaining to the RMR process, specifically the depth to which its cut. I couldn't find much information aside from a few photos and the companies that did the work.

    I plan to 1/3 co-witness my sights as well so I can update this on the height and models of sights that I choose. I need to do a little more research before then though.

    Wow look awesome! I love the brushed/battleworn slide finish.

    I plan to have it fully stippled in the near future. I had a local guy do my SK, I've been trying to decide if I want to go back to him or give MLS a shot.

    All I can take credit for is the grip work but I agree that is definitely one fresh looking piece. Normally I'm not one for the battleworn look but his gun definitely rocks it
