    I hope SOMEBODY knows what your question is.

    You might want to make it clear you were (probably) asking a sight question and not a Glock question.

    Allow me to translate:
    Affixed to my post is a picture of a Glock gen 5 with an MOS slide.
    There is a particular red dot that is attached to the slide. Would anyone know what Red Dot that is and would you be so kind to tell me?
    Many thanks,
    RPMSTL

    Shield RMS, I have one on my Gen4. I used the Shield MOS plate to mount mine instead of the MOS plates that come with the gun.

    Edit: Looks like the gun in the picture is using the Shield plate as well.

    Looks good by the way, reminds me of a Chevy Avalanche.

    It's reportedly not as rugged as a Trijicon RMR but...

    The glass (plastic actually, so it will scratch easier than the RMR) on mine is clearer than the RMR, the dot is much brighter, you don't have to dismount it from the gun to change the battery, and so far mine has held zero just fine.

    Mine has the 8 m.o.a dot and it is far brighter than the RMR, or even the Shield/JPoint with the 4 m.o.a. dot. That was important to me because my eyesight has deteriorated markedly over the past few years.

    I am satisfied that I made the right decision for me. Others might put a higher priority on ruggedness. You never know when you'll need to crush concrete blocks with your red dot. :supergrin:

    Regards,
    Happyguy :)

    Here is a picture of the same gun when I had a JPoint on it. They are the same form factor and I keep the cover on mine unless I am shooting it. The cover keeps the lens clean and the auto adjust on its minimum setting to extend battery life. The JPoint is about a year old and is still on the original battery. (JPoint and Shield share the same electronics)

    The cover pops off as the gun clears the holster
