TRUGLO, Inc Pistol Dovetail Optic Mount


TRUGLO®, Inc. Offers Pistol Dovetail Optic Mount

Adaptor Provides No-Modification Installation on Popular Handgun Platforms

( – Installing an optic on a semi-auto handgun used to require sending the slide out to be machined to accept the optic—a costly operation that permanently altered the handgun slide. Now there is a better way, thanks to the new Pistol Red•Dot Sight Mount from TRUGLO®, Inc.

TruGlo Red Dot Sight Mount

The Pistol Red•Dot Sight Mount takes advantage of the dovetail slot to add an optic mounting base. The mount is made from CNC-machined billet steel, with lightening cuts to reduce weight. “Using billet steel allows the mounting plate to be thinner and lower than other aluminum designs, while maintaining or exceeding the same strength” said Pliny Gale, TRUGLO Marketing Manager. The mount is treated with a nitride FORTRESS•FINISH™ to resist corrosion and match the finish of popular pistol slides.

The Pistol Red•Dot Sight Mount is available for Glock®, (all double-stack models) Smith and Wesson® M&P®, (most models) and Ruger® (Mark II – Mark IV rimfire target pistols). Within each handgun type there are two model configurations, designed to fit popular optics including the TRUGLO® TRU•TEC™ Micro, Vortex® Viper™, Trijicon® RMR™, and many other optics that share similar mount “footprints”. On the Glock® and M&P® models, the mount presses into the dovetail, replacing the rear sight. The Ruger® model the replaces the factory Picatinny rail—allowing the optic to sit lower and install easily without an additional picatinny adaptor.
