    Thank you! Yeah both of those sights would be good choices. My recollection is the plug connecting the wires to the trigger module was the limiting factor on how low the sight could be mounted, but there was just enough room to match the standard milling depth. For basic dry fire you probably could get away with double sided tape (as long as the battery was top-loading), but some folks also use SIRTs for things like force-on-force training, so I was glad to be able to include a robust mount.
    I sent you a PM, very interested in purchasing one!!

    I'd be in for one depending on cost. Is the fastfire the same footprint as the RMSC and romeo zero?

    This is, ultimately, the downside to the SIRT. Looking for the laser instead of looking for the sights and/or target.

    Another thing I don't like about the red dot simulator is that the trigger must be prepped to activate the dot. Not a good practice for something like an LE application where it may be necessary to point a pistol at someone. Ideally the dedicated optics slide would be the only way to go.

    There are a lot of downsides to using a SIRT for dry fire. They are a fine tool for force on force, but they will really create some bad habits in dry fire, namely losing the ability to call your shots.
