    Kel-Tec does not recommend putting a red dot on the P-17, weight issue on the slide

    You may be able to rigg something up. There are all kinds of Picatinny rail adapters. The sight may wind up on side of slide and you would have to shoot gang banger style? It would look awful. But if you look hard enough I think there is an adapter that mounts on rail and winds up on top without touching the slide.

    If I'm ever able to get my hands on a p17 I'll get a mount made for it. I still haven't seen one at any of my local gun stores.

    Been looking for months myself. Even online they are scarce and way over priced imo.

    Was just looking at the weight of micro red dot sights & most are around 1 oz.
    If you remove the existing sight from the P17 and tap the slide for a direct mount of a micro dot you would probably only be adding .5 oz to the total weight of the slide. I dont know what that would do to the P17. Probably only limit your ammo choice.
