    Bowie Tactical Concepts HK P30S w/ Delta Point RDS

    This is on it's way back from Bowie Tactical (Ohio) tomorrow...




    HKP30S with "Basic" Vickers package, cut for Leupold Delta Point, cut and install "back up" iron sights (BUIS), slide refinished in Sniper Gray Cerakote.

    Pending on how I like the dot over the next couple of months will determine if I stick with the RDS when I eventually send a G17 to Bowie to work his magic on.

    Bowie does top-notch work, and you will not be disappointed. It looks like a great set-up.

    Sweet setup! I don't know anything about red dots, but the ones I've seen were mounted between the irons. Any reason why you mounted the irons in front of the red dot?

    Not really sure why he does it like that, but its easier to get back into a regular holster with the RDS in the rear.

    Mine was done by Gabe Suarez' sub-company, TSD. It has the RDS between the two sights.

    I have heard various reasons for the forward mounted rear sight:

    1. It keeps the brass from hitting the sight window or getting powder residue on it
    2. It allows the company doing the milling to charge more for milling an extra slot for the rear sight

    My center-mounted RDS has never been nicked by brass. It doesn't get dirty from powder residue. Mine seems to go into a holster just as easily as when it didn't have the RDS mounted.

    I'm inclined to think #2 is the correct answer

    Having the sights in the traditional position is the way to go, IMO.

    Must have been later than I thought last night.....

    The reason the Deltapoint get's the rear mounting is that there are two set screws in the rear that secure the mount to it's base.


    As for holster fit, I can't comment on the Suarez jobs, but the RMR equipped G19 we played with in Ohio would not have fit in Lima's holster if the RDS was in front of the rear sight.

    I've been in contact with Garrett Industries and am pretty much 99% decided on ordering a Silent Thunder IWB, corny names aside, it looks like just the rig I'm looking for.

    when I sent my m&p9c in to btc, I asked mr bowie about this...
    2 reasons
    1. Moves the rds further away from the ejection port thereby protecting in from ejecting brass more.
    2. More unobstructed view of rds window to acquire the reticle faster.

    Can't wait for my m&p to be done.
