    I want to put a red dot sight on my Gold Cup. It looks like the JPoint will mount onto the Gold Cup w/out machining the slide. Am I correct in this assumption? Is the JPoint a good choice?

    My buddy and I have the Trijicon Red Dot sight that is like the JPoint. I can highly recommend the Trijicon. We have placed them on hard shooting Glock 20 10mm pistols without any problems.

    Hope this helps

    How is the Trijicon mounted on your piece?

    I think that's the one that replaces the rear sight.

    Yes, it mounts on the back. I would like to know which red dot sights will mount on my Gold Cup w/out needing to be machined. I have an adjustable sight on my piece now. I would like to be able to just take it off and put the red dot on with an adaptor. The JPpoint seems to be small and light. I don't know how good they are though. I was hoping some of you guys might have experience with them.

    This is my everyday carry piece. I have lasers on all my other carry guns and I want to try red dot sights out for carry.

    I think you are smelling right! Why on a carry gun?
