If you’re not quite ready to go all high-end with an Arsenal Democracy AD Blackside or Zev Technologies GlockWORX customized Glock combat/tactical pistol package, then you might want to look at the Strike Industries SI G.U.M., or Gun Universal (Optics) Mount, as a way to quickly and inexpensively mount a mini red dot combat optic, like the Trijicon RMR (Ruggedized Miniature Reflex) LED Sight or DOCTER Sight III. The SI GUM optic mounting plate utilizes the Glock pistols’ dovetail sight cutout in the slide, rather than requiring the end-user to cut into his/her slide. The SI G.U.M. mounting plate is secured to the slide with 6 set screws.
The following information on the SI Glock Universal (Optics) Mount (GUM) comes directly from the Strike Industries website:
“Strike Industries is proud to introduce a revolutionary new product. The Gun Universal (Optics) Mount. It has one of the lowest if not the lowest bore axis in the industry without the hassle and cost of cutting your slide! We have put many hours and 1000’s of rounds down range with most of the more popular red dot optics on the market with no problems what so ever! This includes the Burris* fast* fire* II & III, Leupold* delta point* reflex sights, Doctors* II & III, EoTech* (MRDS*), Trijicon* RMR* and many others.
The mount itself is secured to the slide via the dove tail with 6 set screws. Two in the dovetail cut and one forward and aft of the dovetail and two more to prevent any shift. This provides a steady sturdy and rugged mount that will hold your zero. Other mounting hardware that we include is 6mm, 8mm and 10mm screws (two of each) that are used to fit and secure most of the popular optics out there. (Depending on what optic you have you will need to find the screws to correlates with your particular optic. There are two special screws for Trijicon RMR. Once you secured the GUM to your slide and found the correct post ( two sets of reinforcing post included) for your optic, go ahead and mount your optic on the post and use the final two longer securing screws to secure your optic to the GUM.
You may mark your slide when using this mount to properly secure the mount.
It is highly suggested you have a gunsmith install the GUM utilize the correct tools for installation.
Leupold Delta Point* can be mounted but not with reinforced posts to secure 100%
Trademark* belongs to its manufacturer”
