TEMPLE, TX, Jul 27, 2018—Hudson Mfg continues to expand their line of factory-built accessories for the H9. Earlier this year, Hudson successfully introduced a 1/2×28 TPI drop- in threaded barrel for the H9. Then, followed that up by shipping their C1 Compensator a week ahead of schedule, ending a pre-sale that began on July 3rd.
Today Hudson announced the pre-sale of the H_RD Slide (short for Hudson Red Dot Slide). The H_RD comes complete with slide internals, front serrations, and a patent-pending steel mounting plate system at an MSRP of $747. During the pre-sale, Hudson is offering a 9% discount toward the purchase of the H_RD. During the first nine days of the pre-sale, three lucky customers who purchase the H_RD will receive their choice of a Trijicon RMR, Shield RMS, or a Leupold DeltaPoint Pro.
The H_RD Slide is a variant of the H9 slide engineered to allow for the mounting of red dot optics. The H_RD Slide mounting plate system allows a single slide to use multiple optics. Initially, Hudson Mfg is offering a choice of three hardened steel mounting plates for the Trijicon RMR, Shield RMS, and Leupold DeltaPoint Pro, and every H_RD slide will ship with an aluminum block-off plate to use when an optic is not mounted. The H_RD features a suppressor height front sight and a suppressor height rear sight integrated into the initial plate offerings.
The hardened steel mounting plates fit over a robust pivot surface and rotate into dual dovetail joints cut into the slide. The result is a robust system that prevents forward and rearward motion of the plate and provides the assurance that the H_RD plates will keep your
optic in place while shooting. The H_RD Slide is engineered to allow for the lowest possible mounting surface without sacrificing weight, reliability, or compromising critical dimensions.
“I’m excited where we ended up with the H_RD slide. We could have opted to mill individual optics, but with how rapid the red dot optic market is changing, we wanted H9 owners to be able to change out a machined mounting plate. Red dot sights are going to continue to impact the handgun market in the same way optics transformed rifles. We’re going to ensure our customers have the options to run their H9s the way they want.” – Cy Hudson, CEO
The availability of the H_RD changes how shooters utilize the H9. The H9 will be more competitive in additional divisions, and H9 owners have more options in configuring the H9. The H_RD Slide is available at shop.hudsonmfg.com. MSRP $747
