    No RJ it is not you. I would bet you a 9.99 taco plate lunch that it is bigger than either the Holosun or the Acro.

    As both those dimensions are widely available, one could have measured the SF offering if one was so inclined to make such a comparison.

    I freely acknowledge that I am making a WAG based more on human nature re sales/marketing etc. than anything more scientific like trying to figure out high the rear sight or some other dimension on the gun is and extrapolating from there.

    As per a chat with SF today, it, like all SF red dot optics are made in China.

    Above is the Holosun version. I think it's just the nature of closed emitter dots?

    It's the nature of the beast. Taking the height of the front lens, and making it the same height at the rear, gets you a visual perspective of a giant freaking optic. To seal off the led, and get away from environmental issues, that's way, way, way worth the offset.


    I do have 407 and 507 equipped pistols currently, with a 509 on order. I'll make some comparison pics when things roll in.
    Nice people fall to the manipulator. The manipulator crumbles under the assertive. The assertive shrinks before the aggressive. The aggressive have no plan for the assaultive. The assaultive are unprepared for the homicidal.

    Could be. Dimensions of the HS 507c v2 and 509T for comparison show the closed emitter HS is in fact taller, 1.35 vs 1.14.

    Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.

    I just purchased (on Reddit [gag, but the GAFS thread has good deals]) another Blade for one of my rifles. I continue to be very impressed with the Blade, and the reticle allows for somewhat more precise shooting at longer distances vs a red dot. My eyes just turn a dot into a cluster that obscures smaller targets.

    You all know I'm not a "just as good as" or "good enough for me" type - but it is good enough for what I do and then some in spades. I have several MRO's but I've got to the point that I just like the Blade better. And by "like" I mean I prefer to shoot with it. A debate on how bomb-proof one or the other is can be for a different day; I'll likely never need to know.

    My buddy grabbed a justice (The wider one) and i helped him mount it to his vcomp and got it zeroed(ish) today. The range was a mucky mire of death from the melting snow turning to mud and standing water but i ran a single bill from the ready just to see how the dot tracked.

    The hits in the 10 ring were from getting a rough zero. The 5 above and 1 below were from the bill. It was hard enough not sinking in a mud hole, i hope to get some more time with it to run it harder and refine the zero a but more if necessary.

    Initial impressions are that the dot did not distort, buttons were nice and positive, and it had clear glass. Trouble free adjusting the zero despite the lack of clicks in the dials.

    This example will probably not see high round counts nor live on a reciprocating slide, but between this and another friends sentinel, i will be snagging a sf when i need another dot in the price range.

    I'll post updates as he and i get to shoot it more.

    Added a Liberty to my collection of red dots. So far I like what I see. I mounted it to my 320X Compact that was originally milled for the Romeo 1 Pro then I had it milled to accept an RMR. Decided to give the Liberty a shot. I love the size of the window compared to the RMR, also it is a top load battery (1632) so It doesn't need to be removed from the gun for battery change. I find the dot to be crisp (I have an astigmatism). The only think I don't like is there is a small gap between the back of the optic and where the rear sight is mounted. Very minor issue.

    I just swapped out the OEM MOS plate for a CHPWS V4 Mil/LEO RMR plate on my Liberty equipped G19. It was a TIGHT fit. So much so that I actually had to take a huge deep breath and gulp to do a little filing at the front to get the optic to snap into place with a light rubber mallet tap. That's not a complaint, I like that it's in there that tight. I figure the plate is affordable enough that a little filing to fit this optic was worth it. The included screws labeled RMR were the right size to attach it, however, I was running the Ironsides shield before and I need longer screws to make that work. The T-posts take a smaller diameter screw than the OEM plate, so the Swampfox provided screws are too fat. Honestly though, I like it better this way by a huge margin. I get a perfect height on the rear iron sight with it like this. I may forgo ordering screws and just try extra hard not to Cowan this thing on the concrete.
