Installing a Glock red dot no milling the slide with these 4 options:

There are so many ways to do it today than couple years ago. Here are three products that people love with you.

Strike Industries SURF (Scorpion Universal Reflex) Mount

Strike Industries SURF Charging Handle

I've had a chance to work with this new mount before all the modern stuff came out. This mount isn't just a one-size-fits-all; it's designed with pre-drilled slots that fit a variety of red dots. This means you're not stuck with a single option, giving you the flexibility to switch things up based on your needs.

It's a step up from the older G.U.M. mount, offering a sturdier platform that holds your optic firmly in place, reducing the chance of any movement during firing.

But here's the real kicker is that the mount positions your red dot higher on the slide.

Strike Industries G.U.M. Universal Optic Mount for Glock

This mount is similar to the SURF mount but does not have a screw to secure itself to the slide cover plate.

Instead, it fits into the rear sight dovetail groove on the slide and uses four set screws to secure the installation and prevent side-to-side shift. You can buy it on OpticsPlanet, and use the code BAO5 for a 5% discount.

Dueck Defense RBU Dovetail

This mount is CNC machined from certified bar stock with nitride coating and is compatible with various red dot sights such as Leupold DeltaPoint, Doctor RDS, JPoint, Vortex Viper, Aimpoint ACRO, and Venom. It fits in the rear sight dovetail on the slide and uses set screws for tightening.

You can purchase it on Amazon.

Optic Ready Glock Slides

If you want the most secure red dot sight mount on your Glock with no milling. Buying a precut slide maybe your best option. Most slides are cut for the RMR footprint and some are cut for the DeltaPoint Pro.

For starters, the Trybe Defense Glock slides are affordable and they get the job done.
