For the movies you’d want the Xmount and Aimpoint Micro still on. Smile



Look about you.

Am I the only one that can't believe with his collection of toys he's never tried a RDS? I don't own one but I've shot one anytime one of my buddies brings one out. Try one on a rifle, it feels a little like cheating on a pistol, it really feels like cheating with a rifle.

^^^^^^^^
An RDS is of greatest benefit for a pistol. It provides, in effect, a nearly infinite sight radius, no matter how short the barrel/slide. The smaller the dot, the longer the effective sight radius. There are other issues to consider when selecting dot size of course.



Look about you.

I don't actually time my shooting, but I can tell you for sure it wasn't rapid fire. Wink

Have RDS on my ARs, but never on a pistol.

Well, after shooting the X5 Open with the RDS, I am totally spoiled, now. Today, I took the X6 Skeleton with plain iron sights out for a spin for the first time, and, I got to say, I was struggling a bit. Shot 250 rds at 25 yds mostly, and I had a tough time getting tight groups. Finally, got one decent 5-shot group that was best for the day. Trigger is superb just like the Open. Recoil is still nothing, but noticeably a little more than the Open.

You seem to be flush with mags already, but I just saw that MecGar is offering X5 series magazines that are not branded Sig (though they are of course one of their OEs).

I imagine you might have already seen that, but just in case you hadn't:
