Check the Brownell’s slides. Best value for RDS Gen3 slides out there IMO.

i've looked on there. i think it was actually your suggestion. the only ones they seem to have are with the cocking serrations all the way across the top on the front, and i kinda don't care for that look.........

they also don't have it in stock, and i did set a notice for when they're back in.....

I don’t have a slide, but if anyone is looking for glock 19 gen 5 complete frame, let me know.  I have one I am willing to see.

How much are you looking to get for it

I have a Swenson slide - standard though, no optic cut. Slide works fine but was picky with barrels. Takes my OEM G19 and KKM barrels. Won’t take my Arc or SEF barrels.

I like the front serrations and the bull-nose.

So far seems like decent value for the $$. Don’t have a lot of rounds through it, so I can’t speak to longevity, but I built it with a standard Glock OEM upper parts kit and I have had no malfunctions and the ejects brass properly (not into my forehead).

It’s the only non-red dot G19 I have left.

Only downside I see is that it is cut for optics that aren’t my first or even second choice.

Windowed G19 Brownell’s slides are back in stock - $240:

https://www.brownells.com/handgun-parts/slide-parts/slides/rmr-cut-slide-for-glock-19-gen-3-prod134618.aspx?avs|Manufacturer_1=brownells&avs|Make_3=Glock&avs|Special-Filters_1=In%2bStock&trk_msg=L4HKQF5CUPU4J5SJS7DHBN335O&trk_contact=31ARLAI3EJUNVMM3IC1DMVDL9C&trk_sid=21J7D3FTP7QT0OKPD9FSSOEOFG&trk_link=UNJNHLHDR2SKHATI2E85FE6JSK&utm_source=listrak&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Shop Slides Now&utm_campaign=2021_08_06_Slides&utm_content=HandgunParts

They have Gen 3 and Gen 4 models in stock, in black nitride or FDE PVD.

These are great value - especially as a test platform. The dot sits deep in the slide - you use standard height BUIS, not Suppressor height irons.

For just a bit more than the Swenson slide above, it’s a no brainer.

Brownell’s for the win.

most guns that are milled for RDS require suppressor height sights in order to use them as a backup sighting system through the window of the optic similar to a lower 1/3 cowitness on a carbine.

On a pistol, You want the iron sights to take up as little of the viewing window as possible - referred to as “low-witness”. The Brownell’s slide allows you to achieve the “low-witness” with regular height sights because the RDS is milled lower into body of the slide.you don’t need the taller sights to clear the base of the optic to be visible through the window.

I mean, you could use suppressor sights, but you then would cover half of your viewing window through the red dot with close to an absolute co-witness, removing a lot of the advantage of having a RDS on the pistol in the first place.

If you have a slide milled, or get a different slide, you will likely need Suppressor height sights.

No. That is not an ideal RDS for a pistol for many reasons - reticle is too large, inability to adjust brightness manually, serious issues with reticle washout in variable lighting conditions, it is very expensive for what you are getting.

You want a Trijicon RMR06V2 and Battlewerx sealing plate or a Holosun 407C V2 or 507C V2.

I recommend the 407C V2. Best value, very reliable, side battery tray (so you don’t have to remove optic and lose zero to change battery), appropriately sized dot, and larger window.

thank you again. i like the price on that one better, and i like that i can get a green dot. i've noticed on sights that i seem to be able to see green much easier than red.

 i really do appreciate all the help and advice sir.

    • They Went Out Looking For Joe Biden Supporters. What They Found Is… It is really hard to find anyone who is a HUGE Joe Biden fan which is strange considering that he won the election with 81 million votes.   So strange, right? At any rate, we all know that it was stolen and that there is no way that blubbering Biden won over Donald Trump. However, we just keep hearing from the left that we are the wrong ones and that there are a plethora of Biden supporters in the wild.   So, one reporter decided to go out and find these Biden supporters, in the liberal city of New Orleans. One would think that if you are looking for Biden supporters that would be the place to be, but that was not the case at all.   Independent journalist and podcaster Fleccas tried to find somebody who actually likes Joe Biden… Easier said than done.   Read more here: https://dailyheadlines.com/they-went-out-looking-for-joe-biden-supporters-what-they-found-is/?utm_source=Mailer DH.COM&utm_medium=email&utm_content=subscriber_id:96908153&utm_campaign=DH.com 5-18 7p
    • Hookers and Blow! Buy in is high and there's no redeeming value, when finished.
    • What Bill Gates Just Said About Boostering Senior Citizens Is Absolutely Criminal… Why is Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates giving medical advice on national television? The self-proclaimed pandemic expert who has zero medical qualifications wants older adults to get boosted over and over again.   Gates’ appearance on Anderson Cooper’s show, during which he was treated as a medical expert, has left many sane people scratching their heads. Gates is a software developer, not a medical professional. And as a software developer, he was unable to save Windows from viruses. Why is he being treated as a medical expert and allowed to dictate public health policy?   https://dailyheadlines.com/what-bill-gates-just-said-about-boostering-senior-citizens-is-absolutely-criminal/?utm_source=Mailer DH.COM&utm_medium=email&utm_content=subscriber_id:96908153&utm_campaign=DH.com 5-18 7p   Line up, you old people!
    • If you like the stock and believe in it's growth potential and it's fundamentals then buy it.  It's definetly WAY down from a month ago.  Could it go further down?  Yep.  IMHO stocks still have a way to go down.  How much more?  Who knows!  But I don't see a lot of "good news" out there right now. Stock splits don't effect the value. Just the number of shares you hold. Let's say one share of AMZN is worth $2,000 (which is amost where it is at right now).  You buy one share and it's worth $2k.   If the price doesn't move at all between now until after the split occurs then after the split you'll have 20 shares worth $2k or $100 a share. The idea behind stock splits is generally to broaden the buyer pool and to create more liquidity (more buyers and sellers participating).  People may not want to buy one share at $2k but 20 shares at $2k is a much better deal!!  The value of the company does not increase.  Just the number of shares outstanding.  It's mostly a psychological thing.
