    I have been running an RMR Type 2 on my P30L LEM for about a year and a half (same battery ). I love the combination. I shoot it mostly at steel challenge and as a range gun. I have an HK45C with RMR for carry on those rare occasions when I'm out of New Jersey and can carry. The difference for me compared to irons is like day and night. Mark Housel did my installations and did a fantastic job. I highly recommend him and the RMR on the P30.

    I don't really understand the argument about the increased cost to install an RMR on a P30 compared to a VP9; over the life of the gun the installation cost differential is miniscule compared to the price of the ammo you'll put through it. If it's one of those "not sure I'll like it" kind of issues start with Trijicon's dovetail adaptor for the P30 to get a feel for it before committing to the milling and BUIS.

    Any chance you would post a pic of your setup?

    Anybody have any new feedback on this?

    I have a few P30's that I'm hoping to add RMRs to, and am currently considering L&M or Wright Armory.

    Wright Armory's solution seems to get the optic a little lower in the slide, but requires the rear sight to be in front of the optic, which isn't my preference.

    For those with the L&M work (@Tom Duffy), does the optic seem to sit too high on the slide? Are the BUIS abnormally tall? I'm coming from direct milled Glocks, so I realize the P30 will be a little higher, but I'd prefer to minimize it if possible.

    The LM plate doesn't have recoil bosses. Is that a concern?

    Wright Armory doesnít mill them either. Iím not terribly concerned about that since in this application the optic will contact the slide/plate on the front and rear which essentially does the same thing.

    Iíd prefer they be there if it was an option, but not something Iíll lose sleep over.

    On my P30L, the front night sight that Mark installed on the gun measures .415 from top of sight to bottom of the dovetail. .325 from top of rib on the slide. By eyeball, the distance from the rib on slide to the top left of the RMR is approximately .915 inch. I think most holsters made for a red dot would be designed to take front sight height into account. I canít recommend Dale Fricke holsters enough. He does a fantastic job. L&M has done two HKs for me and the work was excellent.
    Let me know if you want me to measure any other dimensions.

    Edited to add that acquisition of the dot upon a draw is very intuitive with the medium backstrap. The RMR never felt like it was mounted too high.
