Why we picked this one - The SRO uses the same RMR footprint to fit any existing Glock 45 optic cut or existing MOS RMR plate. If you want large FOV for better dot tracking performance, the Trijicon SRO is the way to go. (However, not duty grade)

Automatic Brightness - Use the ambient light mode to adjust reticle brightness under a sunny day or cloudy day

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

Trijicon RMR Type 2 - Best Durability

glock 17 red dot trijicon rmr

Why Trijicon RMR Type 2 - RMR is the original of the original combat proven red dot optic for Glock 45 and other pistol variants. The Type 2 model features tighter battery trip to ensure tight electrical contact so the dot doesn't go out due to recoil.

Super Rugged Frame Body - Indestructible 7075 T6 forged aluminum body. Survives drops, slam, shear and other "ouch" field abuse

Automatic Mode - Lock the reticle brightness for conceal carry without accidental adjustment under garment 

Night Vision Capable - Use with NVG with 2 NV modes

Long Battery Life - It lasts up to 4 years, but still replace the battery every year

Various Dot Sizes - 6.5 MOA is highly recommended for pistol use

Leupold DeltaPoint Pro - Largest FOV 2

Why Use The DeltaPoint Pro - This sight has similar FOV size as the Trijicon SRO but in a retangular shape. This is Leupold's top notch micro red dot sight, and it has been on the market for a long time for pistol and rifle applications.

Larger Window Than RMR - 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! 

6 MOA - 6 MOA dot size is now available for pistol applications. Works better for shooters with astigmattism

Swampfox Liberty - Unique FOV Design

Why we picked this one - The Swampfox Liberty has that upward funnel design of the FOV to increase FOV but remain the same RMR mounting base to fit on any RMR slide cuts and optic plates.

Track The Dot Better - That slightly wider 1X27mm FOV helps 3 MOA dot tracking within the window.

Skeletonized Body - Weight reduction and 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)
