    He y'all. Do you have any recommendations to machine shops or a smith that can mill a slide so I can put a Mini Red Dot Sight on it?
    Prefer to have my Glock worked on locally while supporting local businesses in Oregon.

    Who and Contact Information would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Ha e you considered running a mount that runs from the rail (if you have one) around the slide so that the red dot is stationary instead if moving with the slide? I know its bulkier but maybe a bit more stable while the gun is operating?

    +1 on that!
    That poor red-dot. Do you need a stronger spring to compensate for the additional mass?

    You could also look at these options:

    I do know a local machine shop that's gun friendly, but you might be money ahead with looking at options already available.

    I would check out Lone Wolf as they have experience doing that cut
    I know they're not local to you but they're just over there in Idaho

    The ALG 6-Second mount looks like something I'd like to run ;-)
