    New to the site. Does anyone run the Vortex Viper or Venom on the GLOCK MOS and co witness? If so what sights do you use or prefer?

    The Viper is designed to sit low in slides with cutouts. The one problem with the Viper is the locks that set the adjustments are at the rear and blocked by the sight. Once the optic is sighted it not a problem. The Glock may need a shim, like this FNX. Suppressor height sights will co-witness. The 6 moa dot is quick to pick up targets. It comes with a picatinny type mount. I like the Viper and have a couple.

    Glock 19 MOS. Have the Viper and added Trijicon suppressor height sights. Cowitness perfectly but don't notice it when the red dot is on.

    I used the trijicon suppressor sights as well. They cowitness fine, but I had issues with the rear sight on my G 41 sliding back and forth.

    How did you mount it on the G19, plate and screws included with the gun?
    Did you need to put a shim under the sight?
    Thanks.
