    Almost forgot to post these. Just posted in anothe thread. You can see that I filed down a small amount of the curved part to be flat and only on the bottom half. I confirmed with Leupold product specialists that the wall thickness of the aluminum is .04" (about 1mm). I filed less than .02" which was more than enough and it allows for plenty of wall thickness. Again, the Leupold product managers confirmed that it won't cause any issues with integrity. Worst case is that it may only be waterproof to 33' vs 66' or whatever. After filing it and test fitting it, I masked off the whole thing minus the small area I filed down and sprayed it with some flat black paint. Whole thing took less than an hour. Keep in mind that the filed part will sit against the wall of the slide so it will never been seen.

    Did you repaint it? Cause I can't even really tell where you filed it down.

    Deltapoint pro & fnx 45t

    Does anyone have a solution to this? I would rather cut my slide rather than the optic. Curious. Please advise on the best course of action.
    Thanks,
    Ben

    Now I know why... Deltapoint Pro website indicates that a mounting plate is coming for the FNX-45 Tactical. I sent a request to customer service to see if they had some sort of schedule. He didn't have a clue as to what I was asking about. Well, I guess if the optic won't fit in the slot, then there really isn't going to be a mounting plate. That is unless it's the thickness of the milled slot, which kind of defeats the purpose. Or, they redesign the optic body, which I don't see happening either.

    well leupold lost my sale. wanted the deltapoint pro over the trijicon mostly for the easy battery replacement, but since they cant release a simple mounting plate for the 45 tactical, i'm going with the trijicon. that damn plate has been "coming soon" on leupold's site for 3 months now...

    Do not alter the FNX-45T as it will void the warranty (FNH-USA). Leupold has a fast development cycle on the DeltaPoint product line; Three years ago DeltaPoint (out of production), DeltaPoint 2 (2014, no market release), DeltaPoint Pro is the current product (redesigned/improved DP2 was not released). In regards for a solution try the OP solution or wait for a mount from Leupold, purchase another brand or wait for the next DeltaPoint product.

    Did the mounting plate ever come out? I've seen a lot of discussion on it, but no evidence it ever actually came out.

    Did you happen get those finished pictures?
    I have a Deltapoint Pro and want to put it on my FNX,
    Thanks,
    Tony

    OK, now that I ended up here from where I came into the discussion.
    Is the information still good on using proper size screws and maybe a slight milling to the front of the optic? The base of the site seems to be too tall for a mounting plate, as it would block the iron sites. I purchased the site when the price dropped to $399.00 on many websites. Are they coming out with another model? I would be happy with this one, as long as I can co-witness.
    Thanks,
    Tony
