    Anybody know how to mount a red dot scope on an XD? Will the mount for the P22 work? I'd like to put a red dot on my .45XD.

    Some people are modifying a Glock bridge mount to work on the XD's for red dot mounting like this person did over on the XD board http://www.xdtalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18676&highlight=steel+glock+mount. You'll have to trim some material out of the inside of the mount to make it fit properly, but it takes all of 5 minutes to do so.

    You could also put a JPoint on it using a sig rear mount if you wanted to loose the rear sight.

    I think ATN makes mounts that replace the rear sight, direct to the dovetail. I remember seeing something about adapter mounts somewhere, but I can't find the link.

    The ATN Digital Compact is a nice, small unit --- but I wouldn't dream of putting it on a carry piece.

    Far as I know, it's the smallest Red Dot out there --- but it would still obstruct your sight picture if the battery went dead.

    Don't follow? Does the mount for the sig fit in the XD rear dovetail? Which model sig?

    I have a Jpoint on a Kimber and it does fine. I like to shoot at 100 yds with my 1911's as well as up close and I cannot do that these days without a red dot (49 yr old eyes). I do OK up close but at a distance its hopeless.:banghead:

    I've seen those on the net and wondered if they might work. Did not want to spend the dough to find out they would not!

    Cool. My wife does biz on Ebay (it's not for me) so I might get her to bid on it.
    I bought my J-Point from EAuthor Brown Co. I see the sig mount there. Real Cool.
    I would like to try one on my XD .45. I could just buy the mount and try my J-Point on it to see before I bought another sight. Thanks !!!!:) :)

    I remember seeing the mounts in one of those newsprint catalog/fliers --- may not help, it's one of those that have tons of used guns. Can't remember which one ... I remember that they do have a mount for Sigs, so maybe the same will fit ...
