If you're not familiar with the Warrior Talk Forums, there is a forum just for Red Dot Sighted Pistols
. In that forum, there is a thread titled: Side-by-side photo of DeltaPoint and RMR sight picture
. There you will see photos of the sight pictures of the 8 MOA RMR and 7.5 MOA DeltaPoint that may interest you. You must register at WarriorTalk.com to view the photos in posts. Be sure to scroll down to see the third set of pictures in that thread. Update: A recently added thread in the forum has a collection of photos of a DeltaPoint and other brands of RDS optics on a milled slide with suppressor BUIS: For Those Using Other-Than RMR Sights
The Warrior Talk forums are sponsored by Suarez International USA, Inc., a well known training organization in the world. One Source Tactical (OST) is a subsidiary of Suarez International. Incidentally, when you see TSD mentioned on the WT forums, it refers to the Technical Services Division of OST.
OST now has an entire web site devoted to the use and options for red dot sights on pistols and the various RDS optics and pistols OST can modify for clients: RedDotPistols.com
OST/TSD chose the Trijicon RMR 8 MOA for an Advanced Combat Glock
configuration (see picture below). The folks at OST lean heavily in favor of the rugged RMR LED (not the dual-illuminated model) on a milled slide. The reticle of a dual-illuminated RMR can wash out in certain bright lighting conditions, whereas the LED model maintains adequate contrast. The Leupold DeltaPoint is their second choice, but only if the shooter's budget can't accommodate the RMR.
The latest RMR they are evaluating
and commenting about
is the RM07 6.5 MOA Adjustable RMR LED introduced at 2011 SHOT. Besides the new ability to manually adjust the brightness of the reticle for different lighting conditions (including night vision), the RM07 appears to have a much improved anti-glare treatment.
Personally, I won't go with anything smaller than a 6.5 MOA reticle on a pistol for self-defense purposes. A reticle size of 6.5-8.0 MOA is best for pistol and shotgun. Several of us wish that Trijicon had left the new adjustable RM07 at 8 MOA, but a 6.5 MOA reticle might be perfect for a Steel Match pistol.
