    I have $200 to spend on a mount and dot for my G31 build with conversion barrel. I like the carver hunter mount but it would take most of my funds. Could I get a good red dot and mount for $200?

    Lonewolf carries a very sturdy polymer mount called the Mako. I am impressed with the quality and it's reasonable $39.95 price. I just mounted it on a G19 with an old Tasco Propoint PDP5 (Beer Can) red dot scope and willplay with it tomorrow.

    Does it have to be frame mounted? A Burris Fast Fire and mount might run around 200ish.

    I see the weaver adapter for the fast fire at glock world, I could use it, and the mako. Is the fast fire decent? I know it wouldn't be top of the line.

    I have a Burris Fast Fire in a LaRue Tactical mount and have been very pleased with it. Rugged and reliable, I find it to be the equal to my Eotech or the Aimpoint's I have used.

    This is the set up I went with on my 17C. Very fast, bright dot. I got mine through Midway with a discount coupon. B&B has the whole set up for $339. They have a bunch of Carver stuff and packages. Its worth just cruising the sight to see the set ups.
    The reason I didn't go with the Carver mounts is they recommend taking material off the slide so brass will clear. With the set up I have remove the back sight, put the new one on. Nothing to get in the way of the ejection port. Do remember to Locktite the screws in!:embarassed: After 300 rounds one screw came out! My mistake!:embarassed: All back together again. Hope to put 500 rounds threw it tonight!

    The Burris I had came WITH the Weaver adapter installed. I had to order the Glock adapter piece.

    If you are just starting, you could go FastFire and Mako to see if you like it.
