    I am getting ready to finish my G22 racegun and I have a slide racker (Carver Custom of course)that I was going to install in the rear sight dovetail. Do you think the weight of the slide racker will have any noticeable effect on my cycle rate? Should I just leave the rear sight dovetail empty? The slide racker weighs next to nothing but it does way more than a glock rear sight. I know most of you aren't into the raceguns like I am but I figured we were all into glocks and someone would have an answer for me. And the reason I ask is my G34's cyclicle rate is pretty slow, it still has both front and rear sights and a slide racker.

    Im sure the slide racker might slow the slide down a TINY bit, I don't think it would be enough to matter. I have one on my UL gun, but I don't have sights on it and I've lightened my slide some, and its workes perfect. You probably already know this, but if you are using a comp you know you have to lighten your recoil spring and use loads that generate some good slide speed. Hope that helped to some degree.

    Thanks. I didn't think it would slow my cycling down that much either and with the 40S&W round I don't even think the slide lightening is necessary but I know from experience the faster the gun cycles the more reliable it seems to be so I may leave it off anyway. BTW this G22 will have the sights removed and the mount will be as low as possible. I am going to run a 12# wolff roundwire spring and see how it works and then make any necassary adjustments. I have a Carver Hunter mount on my G34 and while it is great and all it sits a little too high so you can use the iron sights and the optic. But I am planning on changing that in the next few weeks to a Carver Competition mount (just the uprights) and lowering the ejection port to solve the problem. I think that will get me on the target a little faster with the G34. Thanks again.
