I cannot insert my extractor depressor rod. What is wrong with my slide?
Odds are there is nothing wrong with the slide as we do a factory internals check for 100% of our produced slides. The right-side optic screw hole intersects with the extractor rod hole. If you use a screw that is longer than the ones we provide then the screw can interfere with the extractor depressor rod. Secure and tighten your optic screws and look down the extractor hole to see if the screw is blocking the hole or not.
What size Allen wrench is used for the provided RMR screws?
- For our Trijicon RMR provided screws please use a 5/64” socket drive or hex key with a torque value of 8in-lbs
- For our RMR cover plates please use a 2mm socket drive or hex key with a torque value of 5in-lbs
We also recommend applying Loctite 242 (blue) to the screws prior to tightening.
Do I need to install a channel liner into my slide?
If you ordered a finished slide then your channel liner has already been installed and is ready for assembly with your internals. If you specified an “unfinished” media blasted slide then your channel liner will be included in the box and should be installed after you coat it.
The screws you gave me are too tall for the Holosun 507c optic. What happened?
Even though the Holosun 407c/507c optic fits on the Trijicon RMR footprint, the screw height is different for each optic. We set the Trijicon RMR height specifically for 1/3rd co-witnessing with suppressor height sights which requires us to provide a special length screw. Those special screws are longer than the screws for the Holosun optic and are not compatible. We recommend switching to the factory Holosun screws (the short pair, they give two sizes) to secure the optic correctly.
Do you provide any cerakote options?
We do not have the capability to cerakote our slides. However, we do provide media blasted ready for coating slides at the request of a special order. Select the “Unfinished’ Media blasted option for your slide finish to provide to your preferred cerakoter.
Does the slide come with the sights, optic, and/or cover plate shown in the pictures?
No, slides are sent as stripped slides without any of the accessories shown unless specifically advertised in a package deal.
