Big News from TSD

As Mini Red Dot sight equipped handguns (Glocks in particular) become more and more popular, one company stands out as having gotten onboard with the concept almost from the giddy-up and that is TSD Combat Systems. Initially they modified commercial slides but began to realize that this was too costly in time and money. So, they decided to develop their own slides. The TSD Combat Systems G-17 RMR Slide is made of 17-4 stainless steel, at a thorough hardness of RC 46. It is a “drop in” slide, with no gunsmithing required for fitting.

It integrates the excellent Trijicon RMR and is offered in OD or Black Cerakote. Notice the top of the RMR sight. Many Mini Red Dots feature a convex arc around the top of the sight. If you drop the weapon and it lands on the sight, all of the shock is transferred directly into the sight. With the Trijicon RMR, the concave top features two points which can help protect the sight if dropped by mitigating the shock. Another thing we really like about Trijicon is that you don’t have to worry about batteries dying on you.

It comes complete with a Trijicon RMR, and all internals, a TSD Combat Systems Match Barrel, assembled and finished by TSD’s Technicians. It is packaged in a TSD/Pelican Case.

Naturally, a pistol with a mounted optic on the slide won’t fit in a standard holster. TSD recently worked with Blade Tech to modify their popular WRS Tactical Holster to accept the RMR equipped Glock. Turns out, guys who are running mini red dots on their pistol also use weapon lights. Once again, TSD and Blade Tech teamed up to make the improvements. The resulting TSD – Blade-Tech WRS RMR Equipped/Surefire X300 Light Tactical Holster System is a very specific piece of kit for a very capable pistol.

The holster is also available through One Source Tactical.

    Any idea if TSD is planning on direct sales? Many may not be enamored withe middle man on this.

    Seems kind of pricey. I think that TSD and OST are the same company.

    I sat down and added up all the parts and accessories that go into this project and TSD is offering a great deal. There are some in the gun world who think about nothing but how cheap they can get this or that. TSD slides and RMR’s are for people who won’t accept anything but the highest quality, think Omega and Rolex not Timex or Casio. If you pinch a penny so hard Lincoln poops himself this package is not for you.
