Holosun 508T - 2nd Best

The solar panel on top takes over if the battery runs out. However, it requires button pushes to activate it.

It also uses the RMR footprint red dot adapter plates.

Trijicon SRO - Largest FOV

This is one of the top red dot sights recommended for competition shooting on pistols and rifles

It uses the same footprint without having to invest money on new adapter plates.

Reticles offered are: 1, 2.5 or 5 MOA center dot only

Swampfox Kingslayer - Best For The Money

Swampfox Kinslayer features an RMR compatible footprint to mount on most custom slides or M1913 rail.

It's a cheaper product for beginners who are just getting into red dot sights without spending big money.

The battery life is good without solar panel.

The optic offers 3 MOA dot. 65 MOA ring + 3 MOA center in green or red reticle colors

Swampfox Justice - Best Tapered FOV

Swampfox Justice features the same footprint as Trijicon RMR. This 7075 T6 aluminum body optic is a smaller version of the Kingslayer model, but with a tapered window to increase the FOV up to 1X27mm.

It's the first of its kind that increases the FOV laterally without increasing the optic width and it still fits the Trijicon RMR cut or mounting plates. 

Reticles offered are: 3 MOA center dot only

Swampfox Liberty red dot sight is the same as the Justice model, but has a rectangular FOV window 1X22mm without a tapered lens frame.

The brightness and MOA adjustment screws are the same as well.

ADE Valkyrie Gen 2 - For Beginner Use Only

ADE advanced optics Valkyrie Gen 2 is another same footprint as Trijicon RMR sport optics. It's a much cheaper optic for beginners to try out what faster dot acquisition feels like before getting something more expensive.

It works on most Trijicon RMR cut slides and adapter plates, and the pistol red dot features a 4 MOA size dot, a nice big dot for aiming.

However, the battery only lasts 800 hours.

For serious use, highly recommend going with the above products.
