    Default New Trijicon SRO

    So the rumors were true regarding something new from Trijicon... The SRO, apparently designed specifically for pistols.
    Same RMR footprint, top loading battery, larger glass, and lockout for brightness setting.
    It's like Trijicon took what people like about the DPP and added it to the RMR.

    Here's a video, and while the presenter is rather cringe-worthy you will at least see the SRO on a pistol.

    And about time. Same footprint, not too much additional height. Could not tell if the tint is as dark as that on an RMR.

    Wonder when these will hit the market, and for how much.

    The additional length in the "nose" will almost/contact the breachface on a Glock (using my admittedly crappy ruler without tens) puts it almost or to contact with the barrel. Might take some machining changes to push it back a bit and there isnt much metal left to mount a rear sight in the dovetail.

    Better eyes than mine will have to check it.

    That would be unacceptable. Maybe the notched front rides atop the slide.

    Looks good, but fact that it is longer may be a deal breaker.

    I believe it would ride atop the slide, however it looks like it would intrude on the rearmost portion of the barrel at the ejection port. Just speculation on my part using their delta (.4 inches), a crappy desk ruler, and my 19x that was SI machined.

    This thing looks huge on top of all of the slides I've seen so far.

    I can't see how it's an improvement over the rmr.

    This is my G19 milled by Suarez with a RM02 and a ruler for coastalcop

    With the new dimensions extending 0.4 inches forward AND being 0.3 inches taller, I have questions/concerns about how the glass (and housing) will withstand repeated impacts from ejected brass.

    Just curious. How well are you controling recoil? How's your grip? I have 1000s of rounds down the tube on my RMR gun and I don't have a single impact on the optic from brass. I know some guys have issues with brass hitting them in the face and forehead which is generally caused by poor recoil management. Brass hitting the optic could very well be the same thing.

    Personally I think the larger size is welcomed. As a right hand dominate personI have a very hard time (still) shooting left handed while moving to the 11:00 position when using an optic. I've not been willing yo try a DPP because I feel I'd be trading 1 problem for another.
    Yes the RMR is the best we have but its not without some issues and if the manufacturer is trying to improve on the the best we have I'm all for it.
    Having said that I will not be the R&D for a new product. I'll wait a bit and see how it does.
