Well guys I decided to have another go at the mount for my RDS on my 4516 - 1.
The dovetail Mount I used is egw 49330.
Because I don't have a mill I had to use some good files to remove about a sixteenth of an inch of material on the bottom side of the mount in front of the dovetail.
And also had to remove about the same amount of material to be able to clear the hump on the back of the slide.
It was quite a bit of an effort without using a milling machine but I believe is going to be definitely worth it to have a better sight picture with these old bifocal eyes.
I believe there's a local guy that can cerakote the mount for me so it doesn't corrode.
Going up to the neighbors range tomorrow and put a few rounds through it to see how it is. Wish me luck
