I have 2 XLs in 6moa, both bought off this forum, one was supposedly new never fired and the other used very little. Seems buttons have been causing problems for others and I was told since these sights have motac and good battery life just don't press the buttons and let them turn themselves off. Well one doesn't seem to be turning off. Every time I looked at it in safe it was on. I thought maybe opening my safe made enough vibration where it turned on. Well its been sitting in various places today and every time I've looked at it its on. Looking at the warranty statement in the manual these dots are covered without registration to whomever owns it for five years from the date of manufacture. I am thinking about after this weekends match sending the one not MOTAC-ing in for repair. For those of you that have been sending them in what are they doing? Repairing, replacing boards or just reissuing new sights? I assume both my dots are somewhere under two years old since they were built. Should I just use the buttons normally and if they wear out so be it and hope it happens in the next three years? I like these XL dots but once again feel like I am doing the beta testing for sig...
I think it goes without saying. Alot of us in the shooting sports community also really enjoy cars/trucks or some form of Motor sport. Even if it's a classic or just a weekend cruiser or wild restomod. Post up a pic and tell us about it! Anything off beat, odd, ratty, or your just really proud of!
Looking at purchasing a new dot and am stuck between the DPP and Romeo 3. I have heard loads of good about both but would like to here more of the finer points. I ran a Vortex prior in 3moa but the brightness was less than efficient in the bright sun, but I liked the smaller dot for longer shots. So I'm undecided if I want to try a larger size 6 moa or 8moa. Any one have direct comparison or photos with both? Brightness and battery life? Durability? Window size? Ect. I want to be certain before I drop the cash. Thanks APOLO.
As a part of my ongoing divisional tour of USPSA, I'm in the process of setting up a carry optics gun. Before I set up a Glock 17 gen 5 with one of my trusty RMRs, or join the dark side and use a 320, I thought I would solicit a few opinions on the best red dot for carry optics. I like and am relatively familiar with the RMR platform, and would use this for self defense, but the lack of dot clarity, blue lens tint, and small field of view is a bit off-putting. I'm seeing a lot of Leupold delta point pros showing up in competition lately, I like the glass quality, and lack of blue lens tint, but have concerns on battery life. Max Michel is having a great deal of success with the Sig optics Romeo 01 (but he's Max Michel), and I like the field of view, but not the biggest fan of the blue tint. Vortex optics has a great reputation and I run a lot of their optics on my more practical rifles. Their warranty is second to none, quality is always good, and I like the Razor I have as a side mount on one of my rifles. All that said I have very little hands on time with the venom, or viper. Any feedback anyone has on what you choose to use and why, or notable issues on the others would be appreciated. Thanks for your time all.
