I want to mount reflex sights on my set of Ruger SR1911:

.45 w/ Drift Adjustable Novakģ 3-Dot

10MM w/ Bomar-Style Adjustable

Looking at the Leopold delta reflex

or

the trijicon reflex generation 2 ( which I am leaning toward at this time)

the RMR comes in 3 flavors Led/adjustable Led / dual illuminated (tritium phosphor& fiber optics)

Has anyone tried the new Gen2 RMR & thoughts between battery powered LED or the Tritium/ fiber optics version as far as brightness and usability

ANd any ideas on trying to mount RMR or delta to the 2 different style of mounts on the Ruger .45 & 10mm

And between The Leopold Delta and RMR which one do you like and why ?

Last but not least Reflex dot size : can go from 2.5moa/3.5moa/6moa/9 moa and up or 12 moa triangles. Not looking to use it in a gunfight more for Hunting scenarios. The 10mm I want setup for MOA(of pig)

I have already taken a couple of porkers with the .45(Novak 3 dot) in a night shoot scenario holding flash lights or illuminated by Can-AM headlights and it worked but was far from ideal

Thanks hetman

have you thought about having the slide milled out to accept a base?

great choices in sights. The Guy Razor Dobbs uses the Dokter sight milled into his Dan Wesson Razorback 10mm. He's shooting African plains game to 100 yards with the Double Tap hard Cast loads, getting pass throughs.

somewhere around $150 just for sight base & drilling slide for the sight mount. but this will allow for a co witness setup with the reflex

That is a nice gun. should be with a price close to $5k. but the reflex sight setup is exactly what I want.

Just picked up my SR1911 10mm Ruger yesterday & dropped it off at SPS guns in Carrollton this morning still in the box never had a round racked in it & told them to find a mount & Leopold Delta Point Reflex and make it work.

hopefully it comes out something like this:
