Gents, need some advice on red dot mount. I have a slide where the (Novak) dovetail in the wrong place and was just going to mill it out for a red dot mount. Any advice for mounts (or red dots for that matter)? Would like one with a rear sight so I can use a sight on the front (slide is correctly at front dovetail).

Didn't realize the slide was wrong until I lapped slide to frame and built the damn gun. If the replacement slide can't be properly fit/lapped/whatever I'll try to make it work with a red dot setup.

Don't remember where I saw it but on some SHOT Show coverage I saw where a company is putting a rear sight on any RDS. The sight sits where the attachment screws are. They come with longer screws so the replacement sight sits on the RDS giving a co-witness.
Also saw on another SHOT Show video where the RDS has a sight built into it on the forward portion of the RDS. IIRC it was one of the big names in RDSs on this one. Don't remember who though.
