Iím planning on having two complete slides, with the reflex red dot mounted on one and a good set of irons on the other. I donít see any real advantage to having a carry piece with an optical sight mounted high above the ďnormalĒ line of sight. If I have any doubt about the efficacy of the red dot in a given situation, I donít want it anywhere in the way!

I looked at the EGR site with no joy, but Iíll try MGW and Springer Precision to see if either of them offers a ďdrop inĒ solution. Meanwhile, does anyone know whether the dovetail for the basic, non-adjustable S&W sight corresponds in size to any other dovetail?
