  1. Since it’s the same footprint as the RMR, if it’s a problem, you could replace it with an RMR or holosun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I was told they would start shipping to dealers on the 9th. I ordered one and was told not to expect it by June. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I know nothing about them offering an R3Max with any specific cut. But their new pistols will be DPP cut, including updated to existing X-Series guns. https://www.osagecountyguns.com/blog/news/sig-sauer/sigs-2019-firearm-releases-detailed/ It seems odd Sig would offer three different cuts on their optics and two variations on pistols. But it’s Sig, they do Sig stuff. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Knowing Sig, second Tuesday of next week. Really, the M17s are available and have DPP cut. Supposed to carry over to new production X series soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. New Sigs are supposed to come with a DPP cut. The old Sigs will require an adapter plate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. You did not reference the Sig. The thread is about the Trijicon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Read the thread. It’s $490. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I believe it’s safe to say the “tactical” crowd and CO crowd have vetted the RMR thoroughly on guns that get beat up pretty badly, reciprocating on the slide, and even with intentional abuse. See some of the Aaron Cowan write-ups and videos. Being the mounting is the same and the electronics are akin to the type 2 RMR, I’ll wager the DPP and others are no match for the new Trijicon.

  10. Trijicon has been making all electronic optics for at least a decade. They have been holding up better than Leupold, CMore, Vortex, Sig...the whole field. The complaint was the Trijicon was too small. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. My type 1 RMR started blinking after about 5,000 rounds. I bent the battery connector slightly, switched to Duracell batteries (thicker), and slid a piece of tape under it. That’s how I still run. My type 1 RMR now has 25,000 rounds on it. Granted, that’s not all in one year. My aftermarket trigger broke before my RMR. It direct milled for that that specific optic. Not direct milled for an RMR, but my RMR. Taking it out requires patience......and a mallet. It’s working so well I still have my original “backup” RMR new in box. I don’t think the type 2 was actually any improvement, just a few stopgap measures that could keep them in the fame while the SRO was developed. Seems the Red Dot has been the weakest, most common thing to fail on a match set-up. I’ve been in more than one class where guys complain they’ve lost their dot and they just freeze up in confusion for a few seconds. If the SRO works, it’ll be well worth $490. What is cheaper? 2-3 Delta Points or Romeos or one SRO? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. This has been my experience. Certain headstand brass, I can pull the bullet after it’s run through the FCD and it may be 0.002” smaller than it started. I get lots of flyers and velocity variation with Blues when using the FCD. I figured this out after some uncalled Ds and Mikes on 25-30 yard targets when I know I had a good call. It does work awesome for FMJs though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I think that a taper crimp works better on coated lead bullets than does the FCD. It will actually size the bullet down with thicker brass. Just use a Redding taper crimp and accuracy will be better and velocity will be more consistent, especially with mixed stamp brass. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Transitions are much more important than splits. Say a dude shoots .15 splits and the next dude shoots .25 splits. Let’s assume they are all alphas, which isn’t realistic. An eighteen round field course the splits are 1.8 seconds. Some dudes draw to first shot are that large. What about reloads, transitions, and coming into and out of position, etc? I didn’t tell him not to work on splits, but that’s the last thing that will change the outcome. There are more gains to be made other places. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Matches are not won or loss by splits. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
