Removing shroud on delta point pro

Recommended Posts

I have a CZ shadow 2 with a delta point Pro  I am not planning on dropping my gun or hitting it against anything so would there be any other reason to not remove the metal shroud on the site?

My only concern is that I fully expect any DPP to break at some point within 10-15,000 rounds and I am concerned with Leupold not honoring their warranty if they found any sign of tampering. I don't know for sure what they will or will not do, but I know for sure it is only a matter of time before I have to send yet another one back for repairs.

Is that what the data is showing for a dpp 10-15k of life?

Do you need that .4oz to make weight?

 

I plan to drop mine either but I rather have it then not it’s not that cheap of a dot.  Im waiting for my S2 slide to get back as well milled for dpp,  but I plan to run some light weight lok palm wells

 It was milled  by CZ custom. So it just  makes weight. Thought it might have a slightly better sight picture

You'll make weight with it on there, providing you don't have real heavy grips.  It's cheap insurance to leave on there.

 

If you're seeing the shroud while you're shooting, you're lookin at the wrong things.

My experience, and experience of a number of my shooting mates, suggests even less, actually. My first unit broke twice, at 3 and 5K respectively. #2 and #3 are doing ok, both under 5K so far. I am aware of some units going between 10 and 20K but I don't know of any DPP owner whom I know personally and who hasn't broken a DPP.

I don't think I have ever met a shooter that planned on dropping their gun... 😉

yea... hurt my ego and my insides pretty bad. especially since its only at 500 rounds... and its first match... but all in all, it was fine. I did make me feel better I had that shroud on there. But to be fair... I took the shroud off and it looks to be protected just as good as my viper, and my viper is at something like 12,000 rounds and still going strong.

Those vipers are a beast huh?

how the brightness on the viper on a bright sunny day.

 

I ended up going with a ddp and I’ve read that they only last 10-12k,  but I don’t how solid that information is

Viper has been awesome. And is SUPER bright. But, since its a bottom mount battery, I don't like that. So I switched to the DPP. I like the venom, but the window is a little funky for me. Nothing I couldn't get used to I just preferred to not get used to it. If you shoot a lot of competitions. Make sure you have a back up DPP in the bag.

 

I've heard anywhere from 3-6K is common. Uncommon to get more than 10K rounds before they break.
