  1. I've had zero issues so far with th eon eon my M&P or the one on my shadow 2 . a couple of thousand rounds through each .........so far so good.
  2. Same here, knock on wood , both of mine (5MOA) have been rock solid so far. About 4500 rounds with the Shadow 2 and about 1500 on the M&P 9L. both still using the "stock" batteries they came with as well.
  3. I've got about 5 thousand through my Shadow 2 with the SRO and about 2,000 on my M&P 9L and have had zero issues so far (fingers crossed) I did not shoot as much this summer as I would've liked but so far so good. I do have a Vortex Venom that has about 6500 rounds through it and is still going strong. It's now on a Ruger mark III .22 so i expect it to last quite a while
  4. please keep us updated, I currently have the SRO on 2 of my guns, but the Xl and the Max look very appealing to me. I've had very good luck with the SRO's so far , no issues at all and the one on my shadow 2 has seen a good amount of action

    SAO vs DA SA

    that *thumb rest [generic]* is not production legal is it? I bought a type 3 disco almost a year ago and never put it in. just didn't seem to be a mod that would be a game changer for me. I use an M&P 9l with the apex forward set flat faced trigger for steel. that trigger has zero take up and I thought my S2 trigger needed that , but ...............that feeling passed
  6. yes I have a couple of the range panda covers , they are solid
  7. god .....I was probably up to 7-8000, it's on my Ruger Mark III competition gun now. Actually if the window was taller on the venom I would've stuck with it, that was really the only complaint I had with it. Vortex should take notice of what these other RMR companies are doing and make a competition targeted optic.
  8. 4500-5000 on my Shadow 2 1500 on my M&P (which will be going up shortly) zero problems so far with either, very much liking this optic (coming from a Venom 6MOA)
  9. I have 2 of these ....Nice find they are solid
  10. my 2 SRO's each have a couple of thousand rounds through them and so far so good
  11. Vortex Venom on my CZ shadow 2 147 reloads right at 132PF, about 8,000 rounds no issues at all. I replaced it with a 5MOA SRO and put the venom on my Ruger Mark III competition .22. I've got about 3000 rounds with the SRO and so far so good. I have one on my M&P 9L as well with about 1500 rounds through that one and again no issues. The M&P is my back up gun for USPSA and my main gun for steel challenge, so the CZ sees a lot more work. I regularly shoot "off the shelf" factory 147 and 124 through the CZ at practice sessions as well, so It may be tough to decipher if softer loads extend life or not , because I mix it up all the time.
  12. I'm glad you posted this. take the grief with a grain of salt , all points mentioned are legit. I have a performance center 9L with an SRO on it and I thought about tricking it out and using it in open too. I've been talked out of it, no matter what I do to a polymer gun I'd be better off getting something like a CZ Czechmate if I don't want to drop really big$$$. I appreciate what you've done here and there are some guys on the M&P forums that have also tricked out their 9L's (although they have added an optic mount so the optic is no longer on the slide) and do pretty well with them. I think this would be a fun project but in the end an equal shooter with a real open gun has an unfair advantage over you. I'd make this the next investment if you want to continue down this road. frame mount for optc on M&P
  13. SAO would put you into open (I myself looked at exactly what you're thinking last summer) I have a flag faced trigger on my M&P 9L and love it. currently I don't think there i sany option out there that would allow a flat faced trigger on a shadow 2 that does not turn it into SAO
  14. 11 on mine, SRO for optic , our own 147 reloads minor (130pf), shoots pretty flat. I had a Vortex Venom on their before, I'm not noticing any difference in slide movement or tracking
  15. I've got SRO's on 2 of my comp guns now and so far really like them, but those romeos look very intriguing. $599 seems to be the going street price for them though and that's a bit steep for my wallet (the SRO was tough enough to swallow)
  16. wow the 2 Sig optics are huge I've had really good luck with both of my SRO's so far, so I'm holding pat on those for now. I need to run another couple of thousand rounds through both of them
  17. I've got a little over 3000 rounds now with the SRO on my CZ. Zero problems so far, really liking it. About 1500 through the M&P 9L that also has one, again no problems yet with that one either
  18. I have SRO 5MOA on my CZ shadow 2 and my M&P 9L, , it's got a nice range of brightness to it and it almost seems to get a little smaller as it goes to lower brightness levels. about 3500 rounds through the CZ with it , no problems yet. about 1500 on the M&P, all good the only complaint I have with this thing is that the buttons are kind of flat and sometimes it can be a real pain in the butt to get it to turn off, It's really easy to put it into lock out mode by accident I shot a USPSA match with the CZ yesterday and I literally had to wait until I got home to turn it off, I struggled with it at the safe table for about 5 minutes and gave up LOL!

    Aguila 124 FMJ

    I used to shoot it all the time before we started rolling our own. I never had any issues with it, actually shot rather "soft" for a 124 out of my S2. Winchester White box is total crap , I've had many more issues with that stuff than any other off the shelf ammo.
  20. My SRO is in front of my rear sight, get a look at some pictures of the Core slide and you can see how S&W approached it. this is mine. Looking at their mill job, for an RMR or SRO they could move the location back even further from the ejection port but I guess they need that room for any Longer based Optics. I've had 2 shield Mini sights on here that co witnessed easily, a Vortex Venom which did not and now this SRO which does not co witness either , but I don't care as this is a competition gun not a carry. Even with the co witness I never look for the front sight anymore. On mY CZ it's blacked out
  21. which now has an SRO on it. Nothing wrong with these guns once you change out the trigger, the more I'm using this ow the more I like it.
  22. got mine all zero'd in today, loving this optic on both my M&P and my CZ not a smuch clearance as on my Shadow 2 but I shot about 150 rounds today and didn't have any issues. 5 moa
  23. tungsten steel guide rod adds a little to the front end (if you can find one) I wish S&W would take the ce from Walther and make a steel framed competition version of the 9L. I've been shooting mine quite a bit lately and am falling in love with it all over again. I have the full Apex flat trigger kit in mine a KKM barrel as well. Going back to it from a CZ shadow 2 that I had milled for CO showed me that striker fired triggers and polymer guns don't suck , if they are set up right. Now I try to shoot them both as much as possible.
