Thread: HK VP9 or VP9L with SRO

    I canít thank you enough for your personal RDS coaching all week, which was above and beyond the normal 499 curriculum. I really feel I got a hell of a bonus in terms of training with a pistol mounted optic thanks to your extra effort to work with me and the other shooter running an RDS, particularly in terms of understanding your methods to get rounds on target if the thing ever goes down, along with all the other exercises designed to help pick up the dot faster.

    By the end of the week, I can say I found the dot on presentation every single time, including during my passes in the shoot-off, which was a ďtest of fireĒ for that. Any shortcomings I had in the effort are totally on me.

    (And I WILL continue to work on tracking the target straight to the ground as I continue to train!!)

    I am trying to figure that out myself, by testing a 5 moa SRO on a M&P. Auto doesnít work well enough on the SRO for me, so that means manual mode to set intensity. I havenít broken a SRO in well over a year of competitive shooting, although I havenít dropped one on large rocks. I really like the SRO display size, which makes acquiring the dot easier in weird positions, and BUIS are less obtrusive.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    There's always the Jagerwerks BROS to try to protect the SRO.

    SRO on VP-9 L OR

    Looks like there's a half inch or so of space that the SRO could've moved back if the plate would allow?

    I'm considering acquiring a VP9. I think I eventually want a RDS too, is the OR system for the VP9 considered GTG for carry/defensive use? Or should I stick with standard and get it milled when I'm ready?

    SRO on O.R VP-9

    I can't believe the gap at the rear of the SRO and rear site The beating the SRO takes would certainly be reduced if not eliminated, if the SRO could be mounted further back where it belongs.

    The H&K plate has full underlugs for the SRO and RMR, so the distance to the rear sight is immaterial. In fact, contact with the rear sight might well transfer extra and excess forces to the optic, not to mention the effect on the sight dovetail.

    Not to be hard-headed but I see a bunch of reflex sites mounted quite a bit further back (not up against the site-ramp) without these negative affects. There was nothing said by me about mounting the SRO "contacting" the rear site. The SRO mounted so close to the the ejection port is certainly not immaterial.

    No, itís immaterial, at least on the VP9L. Five thousand two hundred rounds on one particular pistol as of earlier this evening, one third in training classes with hard use. Zero malfunctions, and the SRO is pristine.

    Iíve seen a sig x5 choke with this configuration, trapping a piece of brass between the port and optic, but not a vp9.
