Vortex Optics Viper Red Dot Reflex Sight - 6 MOA
The ultra-clear lenses are fully multi-coated, providing a wide and unobstructed field of view while the simple 'up' and 'down' brightness controls are easy to access and manipulate without posing a snag hazard.
Powered by a single CR2032 battery, a 14-hour auto-shutdown has been integrated to make the most of an already impressive estimated maximum 30,000-hour battery life.

Best moa for the money. I put one on my 10mm as well as 5.56. Set and walk away. So easy my 12yr old can mount it and zero it in for. And yes for the low profile I compared it to the Leopold and others. The glass used is damn near the same. German qlty but assembled in Vietnam. But profits come to the U.S. based company. Bar none the best scope and warranty for the money paid. You would have to pay 2-3times more for something as equal. I wasn't hip on Votex till I tried. I showed to other gun enthusiasts. They to agree with my take
Lifetime warranty no good when breaks consistently
Vortex may offer a warranty on their products but it's no good when it doesn't hold a zero or dies. This was the case after 6 months of range shooting. Unacceptable.
Outstanding Pistol RDS
So whoever 1-star rated this sight either pays zero attention when ordering optics or doesn't understand the concept of a trade-off. This sight is substantially more low-profile than something like the RMR and the cost of that is needing reticle locking screws in the back. Does it make zeroing the optic *slightly* more work? Yes, but you only have to do that once. Rating this at 1-star over that is just ridiculous.
<br>I personally can't stand the way the RMR looks so I was looking for a suitable replacement. With Vortex's outstanding reputation and warranty program they were an obvious choice. This optic is low profile, built like a tank, has easy-to-manipulate controls, a perfectly-sized dot, and quality glass. I'm running it on a custom milled G19 slide with Heinie optic-compatible irons. You really can't go wrong with this sight.
This has locking set screws in the back. So on your handgun the rear sight is in the way blocking you from zeroing the optic. Vortex obviously isn't very bright.
