Default FNS Sights Question

I have an FNS 9L that I love shooting. I've recently started looking for a red dot sight mount that I can mount using the existing rear sight cut out. Unfortunately, as with most research for parts/accessories for this gun, sourcing the desired accessory is a challenge.

I started this thread to get some help. I'm open to ideas, but I definitely desire to get one piece of information from a more experienced gunsmith/gun nut than myself, and that is: Does any other gun (hopefully more popular) have the same size and angle rear sight cut? I'm trying to see if there might be an option for a red dot sight mount using a conversion kit made for a different gun that will by chance also work on an FNS. I would prefer to not get the full sight mount cut into the slide like you see on an FNX Tactical. Thank you for your help.

Welcome to the forum. We have a section titled "Introductions". Drop in there and say "Hi".

You may not be able to place a red dot sight mount on such a small dove tail. has Tritium Night sights available, but that is not what you want. A laser should fit on the rail, but again, that is not what you want.

So, what do I suggest?
Take a look at what Glock offers. Trying to make a mount using the stock dove-tail will not have enough support to work effectively.
