    Any other recent experiences on how these are holding up?
    Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.

    I put the Kingslayer on my Glock 44 with an aftermarket slide cut for the RMR footprint.
    Only have 150 though it but so far so good. I went with the Kingslayer because the sight picture is similar to the Holosun 507C that I have on my G34 MOS.

    I've got a Sentinal M, inbound for my Smith .22c. Plan to run that in upcoming steel matches.

    Just because it "feels good", doesn't mean it's best.

    Just got some Kingslayers in with the Red Circle Dot. Will put one on a S&W 41 that has a Weaver rail on top. Debating on using the second on AR9 or MPX.

    Just got back from the first range session with the Sentinel M on a FrankenGlock. Seemed to work well enough so far, but I only shot 55 rounds with it. The blue hue and slight magnification seem to be on par with my HE508T, but there seems to be a tiny bit more distortion to my eye in the Sentinel. I had a little trouble with my sight picture shooting X rings at 12 yards. Not sure what the deal was, but between the optic and my glasses I struggled. Will have to work with it a bit to get that sorted out.

    I also lost the little adjustment wrench the first time I got the optic out of the box. (The "L" shaped flathead.)I took an eyeglass screwdriver along to adjust for zero. It appears to me that there will be no improvising a tool for adjustment in the field. You either have a tiny flathead screwdriver or you are not adjusting it.

    I inadvertently pressed the down button a number of times when racking the slide. Wish I could lock the buttons out. Guessing that type of feature can't be packed into this tiny vessel. Understandably so.


    The slide on the FrankenGlock has 6-32 threads for the optic mount. The Sentinel does not have enough clearance for the width of the head on a standard machine screw so I had to fit the screws by reducing the diameter on the head of 6-32 x 3/8" machine screws. No protrusion in the extractor plunger channel. Torqued them to 15 inch-pounds with blue Loctite.

    My G43x slide has a .160" deep pocket. This is what the Sentinel looks like with 10-8 standard low profile sight with a .140" notch. (.250" tall) The front is a Dawson .250" x .105".

    Could you advise who did the slide cut ?

    Aren’t the G44 slides mostly polymer?
