    So there's that.
    I saw on IG today that for concealed carry that Fisher specifically recommended Holosun and Trijicon. He said he thinks the circuitry is better with Holosun.

    Ive unfortunately become extremely cynical. I put 100x more weight on @GJM 's thoughts on RDSs than I do on trainers with large Instagram followers. They rarely if ever disclose when they are getting compensated for pushing a product.

    Nothing personal about Fisher and Cowan. And maybe they didn't get a bunch of free stuff from Holosun. I don't know. I'm asking.
    fwiw, Aaron is sponsored by Primary Weapon Systems and refuses to do reviews on their products. His videos on any guns from them are more informational.

    You are not the first person I've heard say this. It makes me wonder if it is a matter of production numbers or more of a qc issue. I've been fortunate with Trijicon and Aimpoint in that I've never had a failure out of the box with either but I do know a handful who have. Particularly with the RMR's. I can imagine out where you're at you put some miles on your stuff. Out on the Mesa in TX/NM I did much of the same, shit gets broken out in the desert for certain, especially when you get crazy on two wheeled dirt rockets. Good times.

    So there's that.
    There are levels. From “here’s a free product you didn’t even ask for but we hope you will mention to your followers” to “we will pay you to do product development” to “here’s your employment contract. In exchange for free pistols and a salary, we require X number of mentions on Facebook and IG per week. You will not be photographed with any other brand, etc.”


    Again, I have no idea what, if any, deal they may or may not have.

    We’ve known for years that traditional “gun writers” usually don’t bite the hands that feed them. Hey, I would want Sig to send me on an elk hunt with the new Cross rifle too. Or just get on the list to get a demo pistol so I can shoot it for a few days and churn out a “review” about it being “combat accurate” just to get a few bucks in payment from my publisher.

    No one here would like say “Joe Blow from Combat Handguns reviewed the Holoson and really liked it” because we know that’s next to useless. But I don’t think most realize how blurred the lines are among some trainers. Yeah, I would hope they wouldn’t sell their soul and recommend crap products. But I also wish they would disclose what relationship they have with the maker, if they purchased the product or if it was free, etc. I doubt that’s going to happen so I just disregard it. The only thing all the STIs flooding my IG feed tell me that STI is making a push into the tactical market. That’s it.

    Rant mode off.

    Still nothing about the 507K on the holosun website.

    The Sig site says:

    ROMEO ZERO is Compatible With:

    - Shield RMS-c footprint
    - J-Point footprint

    So, if you've got a Shield RMS-c the 507k could, might be a viable replacement.

    SME in shooting isn't SME in electrical engineering. We should keep comments in perspective.

    I too was wondering where he got the schematics and what the basis for his statement was 🤔

    Well, he‘s certainly a very high round count user of both. I know what you mean though.

    Anyone know how high a round count? With USPSA CO having become so popular, there is surely north of 100,000 rounds a week being shot by CO shooters in matches and practice through pistol mounted red dots. Probably 15,000 rounds just yesterday afternoon at Tuesday Night Steel.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

The side buttons do look like a nice upgrade, though my fingers have managed to get used to the little buttons on my 507C.

    A side loading tray definitely makes sense for minidots that can't take a 2032 battery.

    I am 90% sure the closed emitter optic uses an ACRO style mount. If it is just another pic-mounted Holosun like their slew of Micro clones the high MSRP makes no sense.
    Or RMR foot print. Given Holosuns other PMO are all RMR footprint I would assume they mean RMR when they say “industry standard” footprint.
