Latest Optic News
Ten years ago, it was rare to encounter a handgun with an optic mounted atop it, but today it is a far more common thing to see. Many semi-automatics now leave the factory with some sort of provision with which to mount a micro red-dot, and Trijicon’s RMR is one of the most prominent pistol-compatible optics on the market to be developed for use with these guns.
A micro red-dot mounted atop a handgun can be a very useful little tool, but not all optics and optics-ready pistols play well together, creating a potentially confusing situation for prospective buyers. With this resource, we attempt to clear the air.
This week on American Rifleman Television, we take a look at Silencer Central suppressors, examine the Leupold VX-3HD 4.5-14X 40 mm CDS-ZL rifle scope and look back at the history of the British Lancaster pistol.
Leupold’s DeltaPoint Micro doesn’t look like any other slide-mounted optic. Rather than using a flat-bottomed design, the DP Micro features an L-shaped mounting surface that covers the top-rear portion of its host’s slide, with a small 9 mm lens sitting atop the gun and the battery compartment overhanging the aft of the slide.
