I was looking at the carver mount, but it really increases the size of the gun, and I dont want to take a chance on hurting the pin holes in the frame, and it is expensive. I am thinking of mounting a red dot, Trijicon RMR or Burris fast fire directly to the slide. I am leaning towards the fiber optic, tritium version of the Trijicon RMR thinking, without electronics less to fail with 10mm battering and it can be gotten for a hundred bucks or so less than the electronic version. Or is this not a concern with current crop of RMRs. Kind of leery of the Burris, only because I know trijicon makes some tough stuff. I will be utilizing this for hunting, and it will be exposed to some rough usage. If It turns out the carver mount is the way to go I will likely get a 2x handgun scope or an aimpoint (again it is expensive). But damn, I have a hard time spending 150 dollars on a mount. I dont mind spending the money on the right solution ( I will save longer), but I dont want to spend more than I have too. Thank You for any input on this.
