    Holosun 509T slide milling

    Whoís doing direct milling to Glock slides? I know @chpws has an option but it requires an adapter plate of some sort and I havenít been able to find any photos that really show what that option looks like.

    Anyone know anyone else doing that work? Iíve checked some of the other popular options and havenít found anything.

    I donít know of any direct milling solutions. Iím using the CHPWS plate on my G45 and so far itís worked very well and I have no complaints. Iím using the same Ameriglo suppressor sights I used with the Aimpoint ACRO and they are plenty tall for the 509T.

    Is your 45 an MOS? If not can you post or send me pics?

    Jagerwerks lists the 509T as one of their options to mill a slide for.

    Same here with a C&H plate on a 19 and 45 MOS ó works great, BUIS front sight height is .315, which is same as a RMR direct milled. Waiting for their plate for the 509T/CORE.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    Would it be preferable to direct mill a slide for the 509T? I have the sight and Iím thinking of getting my slide milled for it however Iím not sure if I should have them just mill a ďMOS cutĒ and use the C&H plate just in case I want to switch out optics down the road. The shop I use did say they have the specs to do the cut and will have the programming done soon. So do I wait for the specific 509 cut or the C&H plate option?

    Thatís a good question. I ended up buying an AIM SURPLUS RMR cut slide. Iím gonna use the adapter that came w the 509 on it until I decide if I like the 509 or not. Then Iíll make the decision on whether to have it direct milled or not. I prefer direct milled, but itís a one and some thing for the 509 since no other sights use that footprint.

    Jagerwerks is offering discounted slide milling and refinishing ($80 for an optic cut and $20 for black nitride) through today if anyone still wants to get a slide milled.

    So the C&H plate fits an RMR cut slide? I was under the impression the Glock MOS cut was different then an RMR direct attach mill cut.
