    Default Trijicon's RMR Type 2 mount for P30SK

    20 years ago I had my eye's Lasik'd for mono vision (left eye for reading, right eye for distance). What I've found, over time, was that gaining a sight picture with that procedure was next to impossible. I'm interested in mounting a Trijicon's RMR Type 2, however the P30SK slide makes that a challenge. I've been advised to find a custom slide, or have some machine work done on the stock slide to accommodate the red dot. I have a machinist who has experience and comes highly recommended, however I'd prefer to find a custom slide, if possible.

    I'd appreciate the boards opinions and insights.

    Thanks

    George

    what I did with both my HK45 and HK45C was purchase a stripped slide for machining. I then bought the "guts" for the slide, and assembled them (minus sights). I then sent the "extra" slides to Ashbury Precision Ordnance (APO) https://www.ashburyprecisionordnance.net/ , had the slides milled and had Heinie suppressor height irons mounted. Now I maintain by relatively low numbered German original slides (I've had both since the first US release of the platform, so it was important to me to keep the original slides OEM), and slides that have RMR-2's on them. I have been exceptionally pleased with the work and CS at APO.

    OK, all of that said, I don't see the P30SK on their list of HK pistols they install red dots on. However, I know you can call and talk to them, I just don't know if they are putting red dots on the SK size slides, as space is limited. I suspect you'd not have room for a rear iron sight (that is an assumption on my part)?

    And, after babbling on about APO, I note you already have a machinist lined up, I am just relaying my experience; go with which ever vendor/machine shop you have confidence in. Keep in mind, this is not a cheap or inexpensive endeavor you are setting out on.

    That said, it took me a while to warm up to them, but pistol mounted red dots is where it is at, once put the time and training into using the red dot. I mean a lot of time and training. Check out this Surefire Field Notes video about pistol mounted red dots.

    good luck, I hope my rambling reply is somewhat helpful.
