First Look: SIG Sauer Pro-Cut Slides for P229 & P226
Adding a red-dot sight to a defensive pistol is becoming an increasingly popular choice for the armed citizen. A red dot lets you concentrate on the target and is easier to see in low light or for people with less than perfect vision.
However, mounting a red dot on your pistol can be an arduous process. A standard pistol slide will need to be milled to accept a mount for the optic, I you want backup iron sights as well, you’ll need to add suppressor heights which can be seen over the red dot in place of your standard sights.
The new Pro-Cut slides for P229 and P226 9 mm pistols solve this problem. Both of them have stylized relief cuts and XRAY3 Day/Night Sights and are optic-ready with a removable sight plate and come complete with the Romeo1Pro Red-Dot Sight.
