I just put one of the “Justice” model on one of my Glocks and my shotgun. To early to tell longevity but man it’s easy to pick up and adds no weight

I was also looking at the Holosuns

The best for an AR platform would the Trijicon MRO as far as compactness and ruggedness. The RMR belongs on pistols.

I looked at a Holuson 510c yesterday and really liked it. May go back and get it for my AR pistol.

I put a Leupold red dot on my 300 BO pistol. It is certainly not the best but it works fine.

I have an Aimpoint T1 Micro on one and a MRO on another. The MRO wins by the way

"Saint AR pistol"


Is it not an “AR platform?” Pretty sure it is unless they’ve done some hocus pocus with it. Hers a visual of the “Saint AR pistol” vs “Saint AR rifle” They look like an AR too me.

No chit? I had no idea. The A and the R in AR pistol completely escaped me.

Trijicon RMR works great on an AR pistol. First hand experience.

I have taken a high round count (1500-1800 in 3 days) Leo instructor level pistol class the last 2 years. I noticed the instructor ( one of the best, if not) had one on one of his many guns and constantly took it on it off and on with no issues. He shoots probably 50,000 rounds a year. I’m not sure how many he shot with the sight but I knew that number was much higher than I shoot. I briefly looked through the glass and found it to be super clear. At the time I didn’t even know what it was. I was shopping for a red dot. Of course I like a Trijicon rmr but I don’t like the price or the sight picture. I don’t like the glass on the leupold Delta point. The Acro window was to small. I like the Holosun and a few tactical guys are starting to run it. So I found the logo on google and I researched the Swampfox sights. There weren’t many negatives and had the best pricing ( Black Friday). So I bought 3. So far I have one on my 1301 tactical I sighted in with slugs and one on my Glock 34. They also came with Steel shrouds. So for my varmint hunting and range time it was a no brainer. If they hold up I may try it on duty some day. I looked at all of them and I was most impressed with the Swampfox and Holosuns for glass, shake awake, dot clarity, and top loading battery.

Also an “ rmr” red dot sight with a riser on an AR is pretty nice. Just saying
