    Has anyone milled the M9 A1 slide to accept a red dot sight. Can it be done without affecting the roll pin?
    Thanks for any info

    Yes. There is JUST enough room to fit a Glock rear sight behind the roll pin, and a Trijicon RMR between the roll pin and the extractor.

    Search my posts and you’ll see pictures.

    How much extra milling do you have to have done to be able to fit in a Glock sight?

    It’s just a dovetail, but you do have to relieve the striker retaining plate a smidge. The slide is actually hollow at that point, so make sure your gunsmith stakes the sight in.

    I don't believe that will be necessary if everything works the way I hope, you can have yours done , buy a slide, or a hole new gun.
    BUT nothing is 100%yet there are Multiple people involved and everyone is working on there part to make it happen.

    I had my s9-a1 with the rear rollpin cut for the new Holosun 507k and it fits beautifully without interfering with the rear sight dovetail or the extractor. Chris Richardson of FABRICATED ARMS did it for a very reasonable price.
