If holster wear/durability is a concern then we highly recommend going with our Black Nitride as Cerakote is a wearable item.
Cerakote and Black Nitride are for the entire slide. (Black Nitride adds 2-3 weeks lead time)
For Cerakote color codes and examples: https://jagerwerks.com/cerakote/
It is implied that the customer will have arrangements for coating of a slide if NONE is selected for color. If NONE is chosen there is potentially an issue for rust and corrosion to develop on the slide. Jagerwerks is not responsible for misuse and neglect of bare metal.
Our Vortex Viper includes front and rear recoil posts and mounting screws. When the iron sight dovetail remains in the factory location there is a small hole created on the front of the optic cut. Due to the length of the optic we will mill into the safety plunger channel.
This will not affect the performance or safety of your slide.
Screws supplied are (2) #6-32 x 3/8". An IP10 wrench is included for install.
If your iron sights are not compatible with the optic/optic cut we will not reinstall them. They will be sent back in a plastic bag with your slide.
We do not charge extra for disassembly/reassembly, if you send your entire slide assembly we will laser align the sights for you.

The $20 upcharge on the 17L/41 is for a stainless steel plug that we install on the underside of the slide. This ensures proper thread engagement.
Due to optic cut depth, the Crimson Trace red dots do not fit on our Viper optic cut. The Crimson Trace has a viper footprint but the front and rear offset differs from the Vortex.
