NOTE: OPF-G43x/48, RMRcc is designed for and only compatible with GLOCK G43x and 48, and Trijicon's RMRcc. It will not work with other GLOCK models, and other red dot sights.
For law enforcement and users that require backup sights, Ameriglo GL-527 or our BIS, 43X/48 (made for us by Ameriglo with a front sight height 0.450", rear sight height 0.554" will be needed for lower 1/3 co-witness.
G43x and 48 MOS slides are designed for direct mounting of the Shield RMSc sight. Trijicon's RMR is longer and wider, and requires an adapter plate which also necessarily raises the mounting surface in order to mount an RMRcc.
With the OPF-G43x/48, RMRcc, we didn't merely raise the mounting surface to provide a platform for the RMRcc. As RMRcc is longer than the G43X/48 MOS cut, the sight overhangs on the slide. When installed, the bottom of RMRcc (with Trijicon provided sealing plate installed) is almost flush with the top of the slide so the sight is as low as possible. We positioned the RMRcc towards the center of the plate as much as feasible, this is done to reduce the amount of unsupported overhang on the RMRcc's sealing plate in front. RMRcc has a rubber gasket around its battery compartment to keep water and moisture at bay, which pushes the sealing plate downward. This isn't an issue if the plate is of the same length as the RMRcc, but with an overhang, it creates a slight gap between the gasket and the sealing plate. OPF-G43x/48, RMRcc's design eliminates the gap/opening between the sight and sealer plate, to the point of emulating a plate that's as long as the sight itself. To wit, if the plate is as long as the RMRcc, it will make the installed height of RMRcc even taller, which is the very reason we chose to let the sight overhang.
OPF-G, RMRcc ships with 2 plate to slide screws (M4-0.7mmx8mm), 2 sight to plate screws (T10 5-40 x 1/4 ), and a packet of VC-3. The RMRcc mounting screws that ship with the RMRcc can also be used with OPF-G, RMRcc.
We don't care for the lightweight mafia and lightening cuts designed solely for show. A decorated tool is a waste of energy and time.
OPF-G43X/48, RMRcc has a huge lightening cut, but it's invisible when the plate is installed and in use. The 43X RMRcc plate is lighter than our RMR plate as a result. There's a vast (relatively speaking) area under the plate that doesn't do anything except taking up weight, so it's removed.
A torque wrench is required to properly torque the plate to slide, and sight to plate screws.
Trijicon RMRcc is supplied with a sealer plate, it is required for OPF-G43X/48, RMRcc installation.
Plate to slide: 12 to 15 in·lbs.
Sight to plate: 18 in·lbs..
Material: 4140 steel, black nitrided
For lower 1/3 co-witness, we recommend sight sets with 0.450" front, and 0.544" rear. Ameriglo's GL-527, does this beautifully. We have collaborated with the wonderful folks at Ameriglo, and they have produced a version of GL-527 for us: BIS, G43X/48 https://www.forwardcontrolsdesign.com/buis-g43x48.html
BUIS, 43x/48 is available with or without a front tritium dot.
We will soon stop including the L keys with all OPF products, L keys will become optional, we strongly suggest a proper torque wrench to impart the correct torque value.
