I purchased a new Mako R7 but am waiting for the county amendment to my ccw permit (gotta love NY!). Anyway, I bought the optics ready version and was wondering if anyone knows who makes a Dot (green preferably) that will directly fit the gun. I contacted Holosun and they replied that an adapter plate is needed for the 507K X2, and the plate is out of stock from C & H Precision.
Any recommendations are appreciated.

Thanks, Rob

He was wrong.
507k X2 has an RMSc footprint.

Any optic with an RMSc footprint doesn't need a plate to mount on the Mako.

Mounts directly to the slide.

Welcome to the forum.
Thank you! I was thinking it should but thought I would check with the “Manufacturer” to be sure. Uhhhh, not so much I guess.

Welcome to the forum.
This is actually wrong.
The Holosun 407k and 507k use the Holosun "K" footprint. Very similar to the Sheild RMSc footprint but the two rear lugs for the RMSc footprint interfere with the Holosun. The Holosun only uses the front lugs and does not have a cutout for the rear lugs on the optic.
So you do need an adapter plate.

I can't speak for the Sig optic footprint. It could be a modified RMSc footprint that does not have the rear lugs.
I can assure you that an adapter plate is needed for the Holosun on the Mako.
C&H Precision and TACRIG make adapter plates.
Sig has the RMSc, Joint, Shield, etc footprint.

Also have a CTS1550 Pro on a OR Mako (not the Ct1500 that comes on the OI Mako).

CT1550 has RMSc footprint.
I could be wrong, but I don't think so.

The CTS1550 will fit the Mako because the it has a RMSc footprint.
All I am saying is the RMSc footprint and Holosun "K" footprint are not the same.
You can mount the RMSc on the Holosun "K" footprint, but not the other way around.
Feel free to call Holosun or Kimber.

All I am saying, is the Holosun 407k X2 is sitting on my Sig with no plate.
The Sig has the RMSC cut.

I also have an R7 Mako OR (optic ready) that was purchased without the optic, and we added the CTS 1550 pro after the fact.
No plate.
The CTS 1550 pro has the RMSC footprint, as listed on their website.

The Sig does not have a true RMSc footprint. I just looked up an image of it.
See below. The RMSc has 4 lugs.
The Holosun K footprint in the next image only has two lugs.
The Sig is using a Holosun K footprint. That is why it fits.

I too have been waiting for the C&H Precision plate and it appears that from my conversation with them yesterday that there was a problem with the first plates they offered for it and had to remake the plates to correct the problem. They are currently in the production process somewhere in their system.
Here is the Holosun base. Crinson Trace does make a Green Dot in their RAD model which looks closer in profile to the Holosun but still has the bottom loading battery.
