We have shot many optic ready pistols, and here 6 best red dot for Walther PDP with great durability, fast aiming capability and battery life.
Let's check them out:
6 Walther PDP Red Dot Sights
Holosun HE507C X2 - Best Overall
32 MOA Reticle - 32 MOA reticle increases shooter's chance to re-center the reticle even if it's slightly off center. Way better than a single dot
Battery Lasts A Long Time – Lasts over 100,000 hours, Solar Failsafe kicks in even if the battery fails to keep you in the fight longer
Super Strong Material That Lasts – Built with 7075 T6 aluminum, increased body strength and durability to handle the heaviest handgun caliber recoil impulses.
Lockout Mode For CCW - Eliminates accidental brightness adjustment due to inadvertent button press while conceal carrying
Motion Activated Reticle – Shake Awake technology activates the reticle upon motion and turns off when sitting at idle
- Much more affordable than Trijicon RMR
- Uses RMR footprint
- Long battery life + motion sensor aviation + solar power
- No sight removal required for battery swap
- Visible distracting logo
- Open emitter design attracts debris
- Solar power doesn't work indoor
Trijicon SRO - Largest FOV
Unobstructed Field of View - Bigger window than RMR, fast on target, fast follow up, Dot never leaves inside the window, Never lose the dot again!
Top Loading Battery Access - Improved user experience, access battery without removing the sight or re-zero the sight
Lock-In & Lock Out Mode - Saves user chosen brightness setting indefinitely, Ideal for target shooting & competition
- Very large FOV for dot tracking
- No zeroing or sight removal required for battery swap like the 507C
- Same RMR footprint
- 3 dot sizes offered, 1 MOA, 2.5 MOA and 5 MOA
- Lockout mode
- Not the same lens frame durability as RMR
- A bit pricey
Holosun 509T X2 - Best Durability
Why use closed emitter reflex sight - The new Holosun 509T X2 is a beefed up version of the 508T with a closed emitter red dot body to prevent debris from entering the optic either in the field or carrying concealed under clothing
32 MOA Reticle + 2 MOA dot - Same reticle system as 507C, 508T and 507K (But without 32 MOA only mode)
Battery Lasts A Long Time – Just like the Holosun 507C recommended above. Long battery life + Solar Failsafe to keep the sighting system operational
Clamp Mount - Tighter and much more secure mount like picatinny
Titanium Durability – Increased main body durability to handle heavy recoil impulses and rough slide racking against hard surfaces.
Motion Activated Reticle – Shake Awake technology just like Holosun 507C
- Closed emitter design to keep debris away
- Strong lens frame from top to bottom
- Much tighter mount platform
- Requires special mounting plate
- Slightly blocky look
Vortex Venom - Best For Beginners
Slight trim required to fit inside the optic cut
Compact Entry Level Sight – Lightweight, compact and affordable. Recommend 6 MOA dot size for Walther PDP for a much cleaner dot for shooters with astigmatism
Super Strong Low Profile Sight – Weighing only 1.1 oz built with rugged aluminum housing, enlarged lens window with multi-coated material to increase light transmission
Large Window – Parallax-free red dot acquires target fast and better follow up red tracking
- Affordable for beginners
- Very thin lens frame for minimized POV obstruction
- Super small and lightweight
- Much smaller window than others recommended
- Much shorter battery life if left it on
Leupold DeltaPoint Pro - Best Competition Optic
Leupold DeltaPoint Pro is for duty carry and range use. It's an alternative option to Trijicon RMR and Holosun 507C, and the DeltaPoint Pro is a rugged sight that's still a super viable option for the Walther PDP.
Optimized For Competition - Large FOV similar to the Trijicon SRO for fast target acquisition, helps shooter get on target fast and knock down targets to score big!
6 MOA Available - 6 MOA model offers greater pistol sight picture acquisition speed & dot clarity than a smaller dot (Compare 6 MOA and 3 MOA)
Protected Lens Hood - Diverts direct impact stress away from the main body and lens frame for increased durability
Top Loading Battery Access - Improved user experience, eliminated the need to remove sight for battery swap, retain zero without re-adjusting
Recoil proof- Increased durability & accuracy, full confidence when mounted on shotguns, handguns and rifles
- Big FOV
- Extra lens hood protection
- Super small and lightweight
- Various mounts available
- Lower battery life
- Finger blocks the reticle when adjusting brightness
EOTECH EFLX - New 2022
EOTech EFLX is the newest micro red dot sight in 2022. This is a Leupold DeltaPoint Pro footprint open emitter optic and it mounts directly to the Walther PDP using the DPP adapter plate.
The rugged aluminum housing is durable as other optics we have recommended above. The FOV is the same aspect ratio as the EOTECH HWS featuring 3 or 6 MOA dots.
