So, you want to add a red dot to your Glock 17. You've got a couple of options. You COULD send the slide to a machine shop. They'd be happy to add an optics mounting slot for you…for a hefty fee. You just have to pay for shipping. Then wait for the shop to do the work. Then wait for them to ship it back to you.
Or, you could skip all that and get this G17 Slide from Brownells®. It comes standard with a Trijicon® RMR Red Dot cut-out, as well as front and rear wraparound cocking serrations. Machined from premium billet 17-4 stainless, the Slide also features dovetailed sight cuts for front and rear sights of your choice.
The Brownells Front Cut RMR Slide is the ideal upgrade for your factory Glock 17—or the perfect top half for a new custom gun built on an 80% frame.
