Trijicon SRO - Largest FOV

Why we picked this one - If you want large FOV for better dot tracking performance on a short radius G19 slide, the Trijicon SRO is the way to go for range plinking and competition.

It uses the same RMR base, but it's not duty grade

Not Lose The Dot - Acquire the dot much faster and more consistent even if you're slightly off center with full arm length pistol draw

Top Battery Access - Load/Replace battery right from the top! No sight removal or re-zero required

Faster Follow Up - Reacquire the dot much faster after each follow-up shots, and waste no time finding the dot

Leupold DeltaPoint Pro - Largest FOV 2

glock 17 gen 5 leupold dpp

Why Use The DeltaPoint Pro - This sight has similar FOV size as the Trijicon SRO, and this is Leupold's top US Made micro red dot product for the Glock 19.

Larger Window Than RMR - This is the first handgun optic in the market with a large window for faster target acquisition speed.

Extra Housing Protection - Lens hood protects the main optic glass frame from direct impact to increase the durability  

Easier Battery Access - Load/Replace battery right from the top like Vortex Venom and Trijicon SRO! 

3 or 6 MOA - 6 MOA works better for shooters with astigmatism

Swampfox Liberty - Unique FOV Design

glock 17 red dot swampfox liberty

Why we picked this one - The Swampfox Liberty uses the same RMR footprint to fit on any existing G19 RMR optic cut slide. The tapered FOV glass design doesn't increase the base width of the optic for compatibility.

Track The Dot Better - That slightly wider 1X27mm FOV helps tracking the dot reticle tracking vertically and horizontally within the window

Skeletonized Body - Good weight reduction design, and it fits most optic ready holsters including ALS series duty holsters

Shake Awake - It features the same motion sensor technology as the Holosun 507C to only activate the optic when in motion (Even just a small tap)

Top Loading Battery - Same user friendly design as the Trijicon SRO

Burris Fast Fire 3 - Best For The Money

Glock 19 gen 3 with Burris fastfire 3

Why we pick this one - The Burris FastFire 3 is highly recommended for beginners Glock 19 MOS model or choose the Vortex Venom. We like the FastFire 3 because it offers a 8 MOA dot size optic.

Top-Loading Battery Access - Install the battery from the top without sight removal or rezeroing afterwards

Multiple Intensity Settings - Very tactile adjustment buttons even when wearing gloves in the cold weather

Wide Field of View - Thin lens hood frame doesn't obscure the shooter's field of view for PID or fast sight acquisition

Super Lightweight - Superlight weight with no noticeable weight gain for CCW or range carry
