    RDS choices for M&P Compact 4" optics-ready

    I have an M&P M2.0 Compact 4" optic-ready (SKU: 13143) inbound--these were recently released. Totally new to RDS on pistols, but tried a Venom on my 22/45, liked it. Next step is to try it on an M&P Compact.

    What would be the handful of top options for RDS on a compact carry M&P?

    * RMR (what about the new "RMR cc")?
    * DPP
    * Romeo 1 Pro?
    * Other?

    Also, does anybody have suggestions on M&P sights to go with RDS? I like the Trijicon HD XR, but don't know if they have anything that tall. I can live with the factory sights if needed, I actually like the factory sights fairly well on the M&P's.

    An RMR is the safe choice. Holosun 507 would probably be fine.

    I would not go with a DP Pro or Romeo 1 Pro over the RMR/Holosun for reasons. RMRcc’s small size offers no advantage.

    If you can get a plate that works, I am really liking the Holosun 509T. The SRO is another option.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    I have SRO on my 5 inch M&P and really like it - I should have a M&P 2.0 Core full size soon and I am thinking SRO again.

    Was about to hit submit on a 6 MOA RMR, then saw the SRO in a 'related items' list. I like the look of the larger FOV.

    I wonder if the SRO is a bit more 'fragile' than RMR, for carry purposes? It doesn't look from the pics like the supporting frame is quite as beefy. ETA also it looks like it sits up a bit higher, which would affect the carry height for me. Found a page with an Aaron C video showing a drop that breaks SRO, and mentions it's not recommended for 'duty' role, and says he wouldn't personally use it for cc.

    Ok thanks for input, ordered the RMR 6.5 MOA. The M&P optic mount kit apparently has polymer adapters, so I'll need to update eventually to these options. Feedback/input on any of these is welcome.

    * M&P M2.0 RMR adapter (the 1.0 and 2.0 adapter sizes are different): https://chpws.com/product/sw-core-2-0-1-975
    * Sights options if I upgrade the OEM: Trijicon, Dawson (not 100% if the Dawson would work, need to call them)

    I received my M2.0 optics-compact today. I mounted a Holosun 507c on it for now but I'm thinking of trying an SRO if I can find a deal on one during the upcoming holiday sales. In reference to the plastic optics plates, they may be fine but they seem overly big and hang over the slide so I also plan to get one of the CHPWS plates whenever they come back in stock. I'm looking forward to this pistol.

    I may sound like a stuck record, but I have yet to find a pistol optic that works as well as the Holosun 407CO with the 8moa ring
    Welcome to Africa, bring a hardhat.

    I may try the 509T if adapter plate becomes available

    I am very interested in the 509T just need some mounting plates to be designed/made from those cool #BOOM guys.
