    The SI RMR mounting screws.

    Website states "Allows for a tighter fit and eliminates stripped screw heads." Just curious, the screws not having a taper that mates with the countersunk hole in the rmr, or are some rmrs not countersunk?


    Thanks.

    its not hard to understand, simple geometry really, because the RMR body is countersunk, a screw will always self-center unless larger than the countersink. Ever seen one of those donation tanks at a museum or something where you put the coin into the slot and it rolls around a giant funnel until it hits the middle and drops? Same concept. Why does it allow for a tighter fit? Also, it comes down to geometry. multiple hard points and a larger contact surface area of torx screws vs hex. You will break a wrench or even the entire screw head off before you strip the center out of the head. Could we do a torx that is countersunk at the proper length for slide mounting sure, but here's where that leads. $5/screw for me to grind them down to length, i used to have to do that btw, or $10/screw to have them custom manufactured in batches of 1k or $8 per screw in batches of 10k to the length we require so myself and swamp thing don't have to spend a couple hours a day grinding screws. Trust me, I did a lot of research into what screws were usable before we decided to switch. I'd ask for a show of hands on who wants to pay us at least $40 for a 4pk of custom screws, but these are't 1911 grip screws, so i'm pretty sure i know the answer

    Does the improved thread protector need to be removed to field strip a G17 with threaded barrel?

    And what color is the improved version?

    I have been reading on other forums that dry firing will damage the breach face of a glock........( true - or not true? )
    I did a search for this on the forum and I didn't find anything.

    The breach face won’t be damaged by dry firing.

    Have you tried combining the SI G43 +1 base plate with Mag Guts internals? I've seen vids of people jerry rigging them with the TT and the Pearce, just curious if you'd experimented with them.

    It depends on the profile of the porting, we have changed it up over time Your barrel may or may not accommodate. If you have a set of calipers, I know its not an exact measurement of surface, but if you measure the gap between the top row on the left and right sides of ports, you will need to be between .365"-.375" for the slug sight bases
