I’m a 74 years old male and dealing with old eyes. My EDC is a P365. How wise would it be for me to have a Holosun HE507K-GR X2 mounted on this weapon? Would really appreciate some professional opinions.
Thank you all for your time and interest in helping me.
I'm no professional, but I'll give you my 2 cents as there haven't been any replies.
Aging eyes as well, with astigmatism and prior LASIK. Often questioned the utility of a red dot on a self defense pistol. However, from prior USPSA matches, I was amazed at the speed and accuracy of those competing with red dots - particularly the older competitors.
I recently put a Holosun 407k (dimensionally identical to the 507k, but just a 6moa red dot, not the 2moa dot and larger circle) on a P365 slide. There are some definite advantages after adjusting to shooting with a red dot.
You should try one out. See if there is an improvement over iron sights. It will take some time to get used to a red dot though. I think it is really up to you to decide whether or not its wise to go with the red dot optic after you have tried one.
Sig sells a P365x slide with a removable rear sight plate. Makes it very easy to mount the Holosun.
I have a P356XL with a Holosun 407k and love it.
(I don’t have the 507k because I will never use it outside the single dot.)
