I'm about to take a big gulp of 10mm Kool Aid, and I'm trying to figure out this whole MOS deal. I read til I'm blue in the face but I can't find a straight answer- is there a way to make the MOS mount quick detach? If I want to carry the pistol iron sighted, just flip a lever and pull the optic off, or is a plate bolted to the slide my only choice?

Also, any recommendations for optics? I've looked at the Vortex Venom and the Burris FF3.

I've never seen a quick detach for them. Only screwed down plate.

That's what I'm shooting in steel matches/USPSA right now. To be honest, the MOS system kind of sucks, but it's kind of awesome at the same time. Glock (I think) made the most of what the could and tried to give people a gun that could easily take micro red dots, for once actually actually leading the trend (anyone remember how long it took them to release a subcompact, single stack 9?). Anyway, it's got all the plates to take every kind of optic, but they all kind of suck at the same time. For the Burris, and I'm pretty sure for the Vortex, you'll need some screws besides what is included with the Burris or MOS system, and you'll need to file them down to get the MOS plate to fit flush.

Not a big deal once it's set up, but kind of a pain that they couldn't just include several screws that were already cut to the right length. I know that's not what you care about, but I just wanted to give you a quick overview of why a lot of people are frustrated with the MOS system. Aaaaaanyway, to answer your question more directly, the MOS system doesn't have a QD option. Just because it is strictly a screw-held mounting system, there's no way to go QD. That said, it's easy to remove the RDS if you want to go back to irons. You don't even have to remove the plate if you don't want to- you can just use your hex key to unscrew those two little screws and call it a day.

If you decide that fiddling with a system like the MOS isn't for you, there are mounts that fit into your rear sight dovetail and can be removed with just a hammer and punch. Besides that, your options are limited.

Ultimately, I think that the MOS system is best, and you'll find yourself just keeping the red dot on the gun. If you want to do irons only, you can just buy some that you can see through the window, and keep the dot off. But since I put a red dot on my Glock, I haven't gone back.

Just seems like a plate with a picatinny rail on it would be available.

These guys have doing it long before Glock and have a much better system. Also the sights co-witness so no worries if your red dot fails.

You may also look into a Carver or SJC mount if you're not dead set on a slide ride.

I like customizing weapons as much as anyone and considered building a long slide 10mm off my G21 but a box stock Glock long slide 10mm with a dealer installed RMR for less than any online price I could find and in stock was enough to get me shooting. Couldn't be happier with the weapon. Looking for the right chest rig now.

I use a M7 Tanker rig for my 35 and have been very happy with it. Simple and comfortable, plus it's not really weapon specific.

I went with the Vortex Venom, but I couldn't find anything negative on either of the sights I mentioned.

I love my G40 in 10mm. I've shot one with the optic and mine without. I still prefer the pistol without optics. It is my favorite Glock model to shoot.
