Trijicon RMR vs Leupold Deltapoint Pro
« on: March 07, 2019, 06:45:30 PM »
Who has one of these and why did you choose what you did ?
Have a Fusion Hunter 1911 6" in 10mm on it's way and now I think I want a red dot on it . Just not sure which one
Anyone that thinks a Glock is better than a 1911 paints his toenails.

This guy has reviewed a slew of miniaturized reflex sights. https://www.youtube.com/user/SageDynamics/videos

The short version is that they are both great sights, but the RMR can withstand many drops from shoulder height without breaking the window.

 I'm running a Delatpoint Pro right now on duty gear and could not be more pleased with it. Since it's a weapon mounted optic, it comes with Leupold's excellent warranty.  I opted out of the RMR after reading a study on several different red dot brands on a 15,000 round test. Leupold was the only one that did not fail, with the RMR coming in a close second.  I've also not been happy with some of the service regarding Trijicon sights, so between a lower cost, better warranty and a replaceable battery without removing the sight it was an easy decision for me. 
If I can figure out how, I'll post a picture.

Hmmm,  appreciate the info . Sent the slides back for machine work a month ago and decided to go the RMR route. Hope I made the right choice.

Delta point shatters easy when dropped. RMR does not.

Ive seen it happen.
A remarkable experience is one where the pain is forgotten so quickly, the frustrations and struggles are forgotten the minute you’re done.

I can’t wait to do it the next time.

You did!! I like the window on the delta point for field of view, but the RMR is a better optic.
