Thanks s0nespark,
Great information from an experienced POV. 

I really didn't give the latest version Trijicon RMR it's due.

The newer version RMR's with a larger dot is the choice of many professionals for a reason. Thanks again for your comments.  Absolutely on point!

I have the early version RMR1 in 2.5 moa that had some reported battery contact issues (solveable), although mine has been 100%. Got it at <1/2 price so really no complaints. Works great on my FNH-FNX 45 which for me is a range gun, although it's capable of so much more. It has multi-optic mounting and good co-witness, so I can always change/upgrade as I figure out what I really like best.

I was educating someone on hand guns this week using my black P09 and UG P07. During that time we both came to the conclusion that black guns are more intimidating. The P07 looks like a toy in comparison.

Colors for game and hobby guns are cool, why not dress them up like you want. But I want my defensive weapons to be scary. Their purpose isn't to look good or be Internet eye candy. (No I am not trying to insult anyone, please don't take it that way.)

My two cents.

Thanks s0nespark,

Thanks for the kick in rear. I needed that. I have been staring at an unmounted RMR and vacillating far to long.

Anyone interested in Original Post of 'CZ 75 Red Dot with co-witness for <$300'
It somehow went missing from the CZ 75 Full Size club on Dec. 24th, so I brought back to top today.
It had DIY details to mount JPoint Red Dot from JP Enterprises (made for JP by Shield) using a Leupold CZ 75 dovetail mount p/n 170903, and Dawson .275 Front FO.

This provides a low mount RDS without milling that sits only 3/8" above slide and co-witness front FO only .275 tall. It conforms to CZ 75 slide for a clean look.

I believe this will also work on any of the 75 Compact's too.
It provides a good cost-effective starting point for RDS set-up.

Won't be long now; mine took about 3 weeks. Well worth the wait!

What color did you finally pick?   Pls send pics.

Nice color. I'll bet it's going to look great, and I'm finding the slide seems to have more lubricity now with the cerakote. It could be my imagination, but it also seems to fit snugger and the barrel locks up nice and tight. Shoots sweet.

I think 'Yer Gonna Love It! 

I'm itching to send my P-09 slide for milling too; but I promised myself I'd compare optics I have first and decide which works best for me. Also want to see how that Stone Grey color looks against the black frame.  O0

Drifting off topic here, so I'll bring it back and the end of this post.  I have no problem carrying the wife's Charter Arms Pink Bitch (honest mods, that is the name registered by MI state police).  I figure that pink annodized frame could make the attacker pause to laugh just enough to help stop the threat!

OK, the payback to the OP's original topic, I'll have to let you know about pictures posted pertaining to CGWs milling of my 85B.  Hope to see more good folks visiting the 85 forum!

I was educating someone on hand guns this week using my black P09 and UG P07. During that time we both came to the conclusion that black guns are more intimidating. The P07 looks like a toy in comparison.

Colors for game and hobby guns are cool, why not dress them up like you want. But I want my defensive weapons to be scary. Their purpose isn't to look good or be Internet eye candy. (No I am not trying to insult anyone, please don't take it that way.)

Looking forward to seeing images of your DPP mounted with the Stone Grey Cerakote.  :D

Tomorrow. The wait this week has been agonizing. I don't think I'll get to shoot it either :| Been too lazy to make the drive to pick up keys to the shooting range.

It's here!!! I actually find indexing the red dot pretty easy with this P07!

The color spot on matches the sample. I think would look spectacular with a TiN barrel. Maybe when mine is more worn.
