Holosun 507C X2 - Best Overall
Why people love Holosun 507C X2 - The Holosun HE507C X2 does the same thing the original model does and it features a much bigger FOV than the Trijicon RMR even if you're using suppressor height iron sights.
NEW ACSS Model - Watch the 250 MOA outer ring guides the eye back to the reticle center
Bigger Buttons - Adjustment buttons in the dark or day easily even with big fingers
Near Infinite Battery life - 50,000 hours of battery life plus solar panel backup power if the battery goes out.
Side Loading Battery - This eliminates the need to remove the sight for battery swap and re-zeroing. Access the battery from the side tray
Solar Power BackUp - Solar fail-safe power kicks in immediately when the battery dies, so the optic will always remain on and ready.
At this price point, which is the lowest it's ever been for a Trijicon RMR alike sight, You'll save a ton of money. Just make sure to click the button below for the best deal.
Trijicon SRO - Largest FOV
Why we picked this one - The SRO 5 MOA is by far the largest window optic for the Ruger American Pistol next to the Leupold DeltaPoint Pro to acquire the dot much faster even if your aim is slightly off center.
Top Battery Access - No sight removal or re-zero required
Lock Mode - Don't have to worry about accidently adjusting the reticle brightness when carrying the gun under a piece of clothing.
Same RMR mounting footprint - Using the exact Trijicon RMR mounting footprint keeps everything compatible without having to buy special accessories.
Leupold DeltaPoint Pro - Large FOV Like SRO
The DeltaPoint Pro has similar size FOV as the Trijicon SRO but in a rectangular shape. The added lens hood protects the glass from receiving direct impact, and it's a better duty grade optic option than the SRO.
Larger Window Than RMR - The field of view is so much bigger than Trijicon RMR, and the optic height is just right for most shooters
6 MOA and 2.5 MOA - 6 MOA option is much easier to see and it's now available for shooters with astigmatism
Easier Battery Access - Load/Replace battery right from the top like the SRO
Vortex Venom - Best Value
Why we pick this one - The Vortex Venom is a entry level (3 or 6 MOA sold separately) rapid target acquisition sight without spending over $300.
Top-Loading Battery Access - Install battery right from the top without removing the whole sight or having to re-zero the sight afterwards
Multiple Intensity Settings - Highest reticle brightness setting is easy to see under bright sunlight
Wide Field of View - Thin lens hood frame makes the field of view clean and less obstruct
Super Lightweight - Weighing only 1.1 oz built with rugged aluminum housing, helps for high speed shooting
