Springfield XDm Slide Mounted Red-Dot Sight

In July, Rich of Canyon Creek Custom mounted a JP Rifles JPoint red-dot sight on the slide of my Springfield Armory XDm9.  He did a superb job.  The day after I got the gun back, I went out and put >1200 rounds through the gun.  I experienced no problems with the sight or it’s mounting.  The sight held it’s zero and stayed strong and bright.

The biggest advantage of a red-dot sight is the ability to focus on the target and still see the super imposed red-dot.  This allows the shooter to acquire the necessary sight picture more quickly and with less eye strain than with traditional handgun sights.  To be honest, it feels like cheating!

The camera doesn’t illustrate perfectly, but in the photo below, the camera is ~18” behind the sight and the target is ~10’ beyond the sight:

  1. There are a few folks that mount Trijicon RMR sight to Glocks.

    The RMR is expensive, but very durable…
