I'm wondering what you guys think of this new red dot? It's the Leupold Deltapoint: http://www.leupold.com/tactical/products/scopes/deltapoint-reflex-sights/deltapoint-reflex-sight/

It's supposed to have a wider lens than Trijicon, a 7.5 moa triangle, a motion detector for auto on/off, auto brightness, and withstands up to 3,500 g's.

I examined one at a local shop and it seemed to be "slow" in the auto brightness adjustment.

Looks like a Burris Fastfire but the window is wider. It even has the same adjustment locks in the rear. I bet they are both made in the same factory in China.

The Delta Point offers nothing over the RMR. The window is a little wider, but the RMR is wide enough. The triangle is fuzzy on the edges and indistinct. The orange looking color washes out, and the adjustments on the ass-end of the unit make it unsuitable for the application on a pistol which should have the back up iron sights system. Moreover, it does have that "sluggish" feel mentioned by another poster. For sporting uses, or games, probably fine and as good a J-Point. For CCW or Combat Uses? Nope.

But can you see through the glass if it got wet from the rain then dries and leaves rain spots. I trust leupolde products, but the tinting on the glass makes me nervous. I saw it happen with a trijicon, and it was a prominent warrior on this web sight. He was more amaised then I was. By the way it was an ak.

1.Okay then, which red dot sight is best?

I have a PPC9 that can be set up for a RDS fairly cheap and just to try the concept.

2. Does the Trijicon RMR mount in the same way the J-Point mounts? (Does that make sense?)

I am looking at the Aristocrat J-Point adapter mount for the TS-45.

Here's the link for what I'm looking at: http://www.aristocratproducts.com/page6.html

Trvingnrs, take a look at the photographs in the thread linked below, prepared by WT member jg74851, comparing the sight pictures of a 8.0 MOA Trijicon RMR and a 7.5 MOA Leupold DeltaPoint. Post #12 in the thread is especially useful to visualize the sights-on-target situation. I much prefer the sight picture on target of the RMR, but decide for yourself.

1. Trijicon RM02

2. RMR does not use the same mounting base as a J-Point or Doctor. So that adapter mount won't work without an adapter: http://www.onesourcetactical.com/rmr-rmraccessoriesandmounts.aspx
That'd be one high mount though...
And on a 5906? While I do miss my 4506 and it is a nice feeling that when you're out of ammo you have a solid steel 10lbs club to beat the shit out of someone with I don't know if I'd want to bolt more stuff onto one :)

Right not I can't afford an RMR wish I could so I went with a DeltaPoint 3 moa dot. When I got the package home it was missing several screws. One of which I needed, in my box of old gun parts and accessories I had one that fit. I wrote to the company requesting the correct torx head screw. I'll let you know how it holds up in the gun games.

Shot the Delta 3.5 moa dot on my Beretta 92FS today it shot very well it just takes a little getting used to.

Now that you have had the 3.5 MOA dot for awhile, how do you like it? Do you find it too small?
