    The only downside I can think of would be if you "abused" the larger window. The SRO will be a lot more forgiving of your presentation so even if it isn't perfect you'll still see the dot where the RMR could result in the dot outside the window. A sloppy draw when you have to pull your carry gun would be a bad time to learn that you've developed a bad habit.

    If you plan to compete with the training gun also then the SRO may be the better option as you can always practice with the RMR occasionally or with dry fire.

    If you aren't competing, will only be using it for training, and don't intend to move the carry gun to an SRO down the line I'd probably go with another RMR.

    Well, having several RMR-equipped pistols, and having just recently put an SRO on one of them, what I found out was that I immediately wished I could replace a couple more. It's like going from looking out the peephole on the door to just opening the door and seeing everything out there. The view'll spoil you!

    I'm thinking that the SRO's larger window will typically show the shooter that he can do better, and thus if using the RMR, the shooter can see if he can dig out a bit of speed/accuracy to get nearer the performance seen with the SRO.

    Or something . . .

    I'm a little out of the loop. What's all this talk about a newer Deltapoint?

    The dual illuminated dot doesn't have the "bloom" that a red dot has and the 9moa isn't nearly as big as it sounds in actual use.
    I've found that my 2.5moa SRO red dot appears much larger than it is and the RMR dual illum green dot appears much smaller and I find no difference in them under actual use outside of extreme accuracy tests (say 1" dots at 10Y) and even then I have to manually dim my 2.5moa to see any advantage.
    My primary use is for USPSA carry optics and it'd have to be one hell of a small target for a max brightness (bright direct sunlight) 9moa to obscure and the washout issues the dual illuminated are prone to in low light is a non factor at the range.

    btw: Trijicon replaced my dead on arrival SRO with a brand new one (serial number 1000 higher) and I spent an hour this morning zeroing and playing with it.

    Right now i'm in a holding pattern of just playing with dot sights on pistols.
    Maybe in another generation or two of refinement the SRO/ACRO/HE508T will be where I'm good with switching over to them completely.
    I've seriously thought about getting that 9 MOA green circle for years because I think green dots pop better.

    Well, they charged my card but donít have an SRO to ship me. No idea on next delivery.

    Obviously their website does not reflect real time inventory. If you leave your money with them apparently you are in the queue for the next shipment. If you cancel you have your money refunded and take your chances on availability.

    Sorry to hear that. I received tracking and my two are on the way.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    I got a FedEx tracking update from a shipper in PA this morning. Thought it was the SRO, turns out to be refrigerator water filters via Amazon
