For future reference, how do you convert the Elite SC plate so it will take a Holosun 407/507K?

I run an Olight PL-MINI 2 Valkyrie on my Elite SC. I find it to be an excellent choice for this pistol. Why would you think it is too small?

The Holosun sights have shallower holes for the mounting lugs on the plate that help hold the sight in place. So, you need to file down the front lugs on the plate. I don't think there are rear lugs if I recall. For the SC, this is quite easy as the plate is plastic.

Hmm I guess I didn't do mine right :grin: The Swampfox Sentinel fit perfect in the lugs, but I just swapped for the 507K X2 and screwed it down at 15 in/lb. Yes there's a slight gap but doesn't seem to affect anything. Maybe I'll go back and file them down a bit ;)

My METE is actually being delivered tomorrow, and I haven't owned any other Caniks prior to this, so I was really just guessing from what I see as a large gun and fairly small weapon light.

Maybe I'll have to take a look into PL-MINI 2 after all!

Thanks!

Trying to mount the same sight to my Canik Elite Combat, but the sight won’t fit the plate. The two front mounting lugs on the plate (No 1 plate that came with pistol) are too tall, AND too wide for the sight! Has anyone found a source for the correct plate for this sight?
TIA

It feels plastic. I doubt it would fit on older models. It comes with a screw and the base of the grip is pre drilled.

Edit: someone mentioned they read it was cerakoted aluminum, so it very well could be.
Sounded like metal when I dropped mine on the floor . . .

I just picked up a METE SFT with the Mecanik 01 red dot full package (holster, dot, gun, etc) for $600 and sent in the 3 mag rebate deal. I'm new to Caniks but after a couple hundred rounds I'm loving it!
