LAS VEGAS -- Raven Concealment has a new mount for attaching an Aimpoint Micro T1 or H1 red-dot sight on a Glock or other semi-auto pistols with only a few simple tools.
Many red-dot sights require the slide to be milled out and they are attached with screws that go from top to bottom.
"The tricky part about a Micro is the screws go from bottom to top; you have to be able to come from the bottom," Matt Jacques, firearms instructor and consultant for Raven Concealment, said Tuesday at SHOT Show 2016.
"With the Balor mount, you mount it to the actual fixture itself and then place it on the gun."
To secure the Balor Mount, you remove the back plate and tap the rear sight out, Jacques said.
The mount fits into the notch for the rear sight. Replace the back plate with a replacement back plate from Raven Concealment. There is a set screw hole that is in the back plate itself. Once it is lined up, insert the set screw.
"There is no machining, there is no gunsmith work," Jacques said. "If you have a working knowledge of firearms, this is something you can do at your kitchen table."
