    Current options for top cover red dot mounts? (In production/In stock)

    I was given a Sig red dot optic recently so I finally plan to get a top cover optic mount.

    The info I have is out of date. I'm finding a bunch of products that are either no longer being made or are listed as on back order.

    I need a mount that comes mounted on the top cover. I don't have the ability to drill through the top cover myself and if I have to take it to a local smith it will never get done.

    So what are the current options for a top cover with a rail or mount?

    I bought this one from Practical Solutions (looks like they have them in stock):

    https://macmachineguns.com/?product=...over-with-rail

    It dropped right on to my Group Industries RR FA.

    It zeroed quickly with one of my Holosun red dots and holds zero extremely well.

    Do you not have a drill and a drill bit? I drilled through a crappy-condition surplus top cover with a $20 BlackAndDecker drill I got from Walmart and mounted this picatinny rail from US barrel shrouds. Took maybe 10 minutes at most?

    Works fine for all intended purposes on my full-size Uzi. The holes aren't pretty but who cares - the top cover was about $15 and the mount covers the holes when installed. I did it on a table in my basement: https://imgur.com/a/hLg8xdC

    I have the same top cover setup. But I had to use a carbide drill bit to get through the top cover. RTG sells those mounts too.

    Thanks

    I also bought a separate top cover, drilled and mounted a ScotWerx rail and then painted it. Saved the original topcover in case I ever sell.
