At this point I'm just trying to get the numbers for G&GG, there is no commitment to buy as of now! If you are interested let me know, we need at least 100 people to show interest so we can move forward!

I sent an email to GG&G and got the following reply:

"If you could get a 100 or more people. We would look hard at making one.. Do you just want a light rail?"
"Got to be 100+ to make the R&D worthwhile."

Sales Director
GG&G, Inc.

Im asking for MK23 owners to chime in. If you want a modern mount for your MK23 please let me know. Im going to keep a running list and once we get to 100 people/ units, I will link the thread to GG&G.

Please keep in mind that this isn't a group buy... yet.

here is a concept I created. This idea removes a lot of the bulk from the standard MK23 rail adapter.





Im hoping to submit some input, for me the ultimate design goal would be a mix between the latest USP mount:

and the ill fated Surefire rail:

I am definitely interested in one, but price has to be in line with normal GG&G prices for mounts.

Wish list for a Mk23 mount...

1) Thumbwheel for quick detach
2) Low profile
3) Better light compatibility than what's on the market
4) Proper shape! The Rhyno mount, when tightened down, actually bends the front rail downwards
5) < $150

If they can hit all, or even most, of those wishes, they have my money.

List updated! Great job guys, we are 12% there! Hopefully more members pour in steadily and we hit the minimum soon. I'd like to get 150 people interested to show a strong desire from the community, so spread the word!

I'm going to politely oppose the request that a thumb wheel be included in the design. As with the other GG&G adaptors I have, I don't anticipate the need for quick removal if the adaptor is slim and tight enough to the frame of the gun. That is part of what attracts me to the GG&G adaptor design. I can leave it installed and it does not change the look of the gun nor how it fits holsters. I'd also request just one slot rather than the cheese grater look of many slots. My intent is to use a Steiner DBAL-PL so the slot would need to accommodate a proper position. Just my .02. If ultimately this adaptor becomes bulky and ugly, I'm out.

In, but from Germany.
I'm not 100% sure how/if you could purchase the rail if they decided to move forward... maybe via an exporter?

I totally understand. However, at this point, this isn't a commitment to buy. this is just a market test to verify if the demand will justify the expense. I wouldn't have made a request to GG&G if i was looking for another ugly, massive rail adapter. If that was the case i'd just by the one on HK Parts and be done with it...
