Roland Glock 43 with Dueck Defense RMR Mount
Ammoland.com writer, Josh Wayner, reviews the Roland Glock 43, with a Dueck Defense RMR mount.
The Roland Special emerged a couple years ago on some tactical sites that use terms like ‘running’ and ‘loadout’ and quickly became a mall ninja necessity. Nothing tells your life-size anime girl body pillows that you’re Tier 1 like a Roland Special. What the Roland Special boils down to is a Glock 19 with a threaded barrel, compensator, flashlight, and a slide-mounted red dot sight. Occasionally they featured flared mag wells and extended magazines. There is general speculation that the gun owes its name to a character from the Stephen King ‘The Dark Tower’ book series, named Roland, but I’ve not been fully able to confirm that.
I removed the rear sight from my existing set of XS BigDot sights and installed a tritium-enhanced version of the Dueck Defense RMR Mount. This is a fantastic, no-gunsmithing addition to any pistol that could benefit from a red dot sight. I of course mounted a Trijicon RMR RM04 dual-illuminated sight to the pistol. It wouldn’t be the same without one. The DD mount is a necessity as this pistol has a frame too narrow for milling the RMR into it like on a G19.
Is SEAL Team 6 going to take this out and start using it as a standard piece of equipment? Probably not. Will those who take themselves too seriously get their MultiCam panties in a knot over my assertion that this is a gag pistol? Sure. I sure like the thing and will in all likelihood keep it in Detail format for the foreseeable future. Perhaps I’ll shoot some competitions with it. Maybe I’ll carry it. The beauty of having a pistol that is considered a joke is that sometimes you’re laughing for reasons that surprise you.
