    TSD Tier 3 gen4 17

    PICS AT POST #9

    Just thought I'd post a few thoughts (yeah, they're gonna be random thoughts, didn't do my thesis outline).

    Yesterday midmornin', my LGS guy calls me and tells me my pistol is in. He says the good news is its in and it is niiiiiice. Bad news is he ain't lettin' it outta the shop. He is a trusted friend, and I had given him the go ahead to open the package and check out the gun has he had never really seen optics on handguns other than competition stuff. I get shopside around 5pm, and another shooter buddy of mine has actually beaten me there to get a look as well. After all the parties had a chance to 'violate' my pistol, I completed my paperwork and skated to a local indoor range.

    Wow. Just wow. I never really gave electronic optics on a fighting/defensive pistol a passing thought before. Man, what I've been missing! Including targets. For those who don't know, a TSD Glock is a Glock pistol sporting a Trijicon rmr02 sight. The optic has been set in a recess milled into the slide, and suppressor sights have been installed to back up the dot, should it go down. The supressor sights are clearly and easily co witnessed in the bottom 1/3 of the window. The Trijicon's red dot sits atop the post sight, and is quickly and easily seen when the pistol is leveled.

    Brief, scattered Range Report:
    300+ rounds. Everything from some cuh-rappy 115grn tmj, to 124gr GDHP, to 147gr tmj, Silvertips, Rangers, all the way up to some nasty 115gr +p CorBons.
    Needless to say, its a Glock.

    Actually, its my gen4 22 frame with the internals swapped out w the new 17, and the TSD slide. Why? Well, cause I'd already done a little 'dremmel-fu' and gotten the 22's frame just like I liked it. So rather than '-fu' up another frame, I just swapped out the whole trigger mechanism, and put on the 17 upper. I put one of Cope Reynold's Glock 'reset practice' triggers in the 17's frame, as I will use that for draw and dryfire practice (just pull the TSD slide off the working gun, place it on the 'trainer frame').

    I've got a daylight range trip scheduled for next week, at which time I'll perform my final settings to the rmr, should it need any. I've always kinda seen two different groups when guns are shot at an indoor range and then outdoors. I don't know if its the light, or the shadows or what. So, I don't confirm zero till I've shot outdoors.

    Anyways, that's the best I can do right now. IF I can answer any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Congrats Dan. Keep us informed of how it does. Did you get a holster also and do you plan to carry it?

    tacman,
    I've been carrying a g23 or 22 in a Dale Fricke ArchAngel for about a year now. Believe it or not, I've found a full size pistol just as comfy as a 23, hence the migration to the g17TSD.
    The TSD rides in Dale's Seraphim holster, aiwb designed specifically for rmr'd pistols.

    pics tomorrow in the sunshine, promise.

    Very nice. I like the mix of technology and see this gaining popularity in the future. Quick acquisition and great accuracy.

    I've seen some guys consistently hitting out at 100+ yeards with a TSD RMR'd Glock.

    I don't have a TSD Glock but I do have a FNP-45 Tactical with a Trijicon RMR and everything that can be said about the Glock applies to the FNP except it does it with 15+1 rounds of .45acp.
