The optics I am used to using are from Crimson Trace. They use the J point footprint which is also the Shield RMSc, Swampfox Sentinal, and Sig Romeo Zero. I didn’t see any of those name in the list under RDS compatibility.

I dont think those use standard RMR or docter cuts, which is all the dagger uses.

I recently bought a Crimson Trace CTS-1550 RDS. It fits my Docter cut, with the pistol’s included mounting plate; the two nubs on the slide don’t quite line up with the sight’s cuts without the mounting plate.

@gilbertbp dagger or Rock 5.7?

Sorry - Dagger.

I just put an Advanced Optics RD3-012 Delta 6MOA on a PSA Doctor’s Cut Slide, Rear Sight Forward slide, and I had to file 1mm off the back end of the doctor’s cut rear for the optic to fit. The cut on the slide is curved in the rear, and I had to file it flat for the optic to fit. Testor’s flat OD Green Paint to touch up the paint, and all is good.

This shows the back of the ADE Optic is Flat, not curved like the cut in the slide.

Thats a WIDE optic.


Also, the Vortex Venom works directly on the Dagger. Doctor cut

The crimson trace cts-1250 fits a doctor cut slide with room to spare. Although it does NOT co-witness with the ameriglo tritium front lower 1/3 sights that came on my dagger slide. The optic is just barely too tall.

Has anyone found a RDS that’ll co-witness with the factory sights for the doctor cut?

Or have a solution for 1/3 cowitness?

just take the sights off all together and only use the rmr… you can use the back plate on the slide to aim if your rmr fails. its highly efficient, i keep asking for a little red dot in the center on that backplate -lol, for the perfect rmr pistol imo.

I would like to see the dagger cut for the Shield pattern as the RMR pattern overhangs the sides. Plus the Shield pattern red dots are sleeker. I’m running a Holusun K one with an adapter.

Purchased the compact with a doctor cut. Does that mean if I get a red dot with doctor cut it will just mount on to the plate?


Picked up the Cyelee Calf X1 to use. Gun hasn’t arrived yet.

You shouldnt need a plate…direct mount to slide.

Ameriglos dot is made to fit a RMR cut. It’s kind of tall though, and doesn’t cowitness on my Dagger. I need taller suppressor sites, but I’d just pick a dot that will cowitness. (lower 1/3 is what I’m after)

How does it look?
