He said something about it in the video, but I wasn’t clear; since you can basically recycle your rear sight, would you have to go with a suppressor height front to even it out?

From what I got out of the video is that the battery is mounted on the side so that the optic can sit as low as possible to not use suppressor-height sights. I guess this solves the exposed hole that most were worried about on the military/commemorative/surplus models when they installed a R1P. My biggest question is how would they incorporate this to mount onto the commercial P320-M17/M18 models? Very different mounting hole location than the military M17/M18, commemorative & surplus models.

Probably a top down screw (like R1P and R2) for most slides this would be the only option unless you have new holes added

To me, this is pretty much perfect. Looks wayyyy better than the DPP on the M18 (sits nice and low), you don’t have to F with your standard sights, and it looks super rugged. I wouldn’t mind if the commercial version isn’t fully enclosed, but the problem is that they wouldn’t have a place for the battery. We shall see!

Then thats the Romeo 2. The only reason for this is the fully sealed optic. If not fully sealed there are plenty of other options. even the R1P

Sweet optic, hopefully can be adapted for commercial use at some point. But The fact more companies are trying to make these work with standard height sights is awesome. I mean in 5 years who knows where they are going to take pistol red dot sight capabilities but I won’t be buying another pistol without an optic cut milled from factory anymore. Except maybe a used Dan Wesson specialists or pointman, I make an exception for 1911.

Probably a pipe dream. But since all the M17/M18 I have have the mil. optic footprint. I hope I can get one of these.
That's pretty much what I was thinking. Since it only works with the military optic footprint, it won't fit any other Sig pistol, at least not right now. Hopefully that will change in the future.

The other kick in the pants is the list price is estimated to be in the $600 to $700 range. That's awfully expensive, even if it is a great optic.

Looks like something I would be interested in when it finally its the streets.

I am looking at the way it mounts and it appears that the plate that it rides on replaces the slide cover plate that is standard on the m17/18. Now here is what I really have noticed. All of the commercial M17/M18's have that extended longer rear sights that attach on the top of the plates. The TC, Commemorative and the surplus 17/18's have a shorter rear sight from front to back that attach to the existing cover plate. Both of the guns above are the issued guns to the military and not the civilian/commercial guns. Look at the rear sights on them that attach back on top of that red dot plate. The civilian models are longer front to back and I am wondering if they will make a red dot that will work with the civy models or it will come with the shorter rear sight to replace the longer rear sight fromt eh factory on the commercial/civilian models.
