Red Dot Series: 1
I've been looking into red dot on pistol slides for a while but I didn't want to get anything milled. So when the PSA Dagger came out (Glock Gen 3 compatible) I saw a smoking deal on the above pictured slide and went for it. For the record, it is a complete slide assembly with a Holosun HS507C X2 red dot sight with a threaded barrel.
Why? I wanted to somewhat cheaply test out what all this pistol optic business is about. It's a whole different sighting system that requires new skills to rapidly align the sight and dot on target. Once you learn to do that, it's a lot faster than it seems the first time you pick one up. Also you can make more precise shots at a distant with the optic.
I went with the Holosun because of the price and I like the "shake to wake" function. The threaded barrel has obvious future applications. Another advantage would be using passive aiming with a pistol while using night vision. That's very difficult to do with even tritium iron sights. Perfect for...handgun hunting small game in the dark...or something.
I'll post more about my initial shooting experience, but it is viable but also you may prefer to stick with irons. I haven't decided yet, but I know I will never consider irons as dead, and may consider them primary. If it wasn't for the deal and my ability to review stuff to blog about, I wouldn't have bought it, I'll hint at that much for now.
