The Glock 17 MOS is pre-cut for optics and comes with a series of plates to mount a variety of different optics. You simply remove the included smooth plate and toss on the plate that works with your optic. Well, that’s easy! Except it’s not. Two screws hold the plate on. The first came out without issue. The second… well it stripped without issue. The Torx wrench included is slightly too small and slips very easily. I used only the included tool and it wouldn’t budge. Until it did and it stripped. Needless to say at this point I’m not really impressed.
