Need rear sling attachment point for a pistol with a picatinny-mounted arm brace. No more room on the picatinny rail in back. Really don't want to create a gap on my pistol grip (thinking things could get very pinchy). Any suggestions?

Edited to add that I'm going to try a plate that mounts between the grip and the receiver. Not sure that I have any other options. Guess that's what I deserve for not going the SBR route.

Found a little problem with my 365 tonight: the front sight does not glow in the dark. Is it possible to just have bad tritium, or is there something required to activate it? I know the shop had just received it the day I bought it. The rear sights glow fine.

The half life of tritium is like 12+ years. There shouldn't be "bad tritium" on a new pistol

I know the experts say it does not need to be charged but I think it does need some kind of exposure. Mine are less than two years old and went dark but was fine after a day of getting some sunlight on it for the first time in months. Could be coincidence, but I have read many similar reports.

Sounds like a leaked tritium tube at the front. Should be covered under warranty.

Well guys I found a used DDM4 556 on Gun Broker and I love it. Came with a red dot and three mags. Took it to the indoor range today and went through the 3 types of ammo I have (Win 62 hp, IMI 62 green tip & 77 razor core) and they all shot great. Couldn't get more than 25 yds or so, but the gun was more accurate than the shooter. Interestingly it doesn't appear to be zeroed at 100 yds, as all of my groups were on plane and not high. I'm really looking forward to getting to know this baby. Filling out my application for the Chattanooga Rifle Club so I can get to a longer range. Anyway, thanks for all the pointers along the way. Now I just need to save up for the can for my upcoming 300 BLK pistol. šŸ˜Š 61738652208__2E1A34FF-2A7A-4A96-A303-27B6F01D088E (1).JPG

Planning on taking it out on the boat this weekend. šŸ˜‰

Looks interesting. Does it use Glock mags?
No, this one uses regular 223 pmags with a converter to handle 9mm. The upper on this will work with, my understanding, any standard AR 15 lower. I just bought the whole thing, even though one can buy just the upper.

The MkGS uses glock mags.

It occurred to me, thinking back to the comment about the sights on the P365, that these sights don't glow if there's light. I've experienced no glow in situations that I considered low light but not dark. It is a bit concerning because there is definitely a point where the light is low enough that I can't really see green with my arms extended, but it's not dark enough to glow. If I get caught in that situation, I'm just an instinct shooter. I think that you have to take the pistol into a very dark room with the lights off to see whether or not you're glowing.

My Springfield TRP 1911 had factory tritium sights like that, but were well enough marked that they were usable in the daytime ( white rings around the tritium). Still I replaced them with brighter ones.
