Thread: Leupold Delta Point Micro (DPM)

  1. #61
    I suspect this will go over very well with a large segment of the Glock/M&P crowd. My initial negative gut reaction is similar to many others here, but I can see the appeal for a lot of people. Especially considering the price point.

    Sooner or later, a fully enclosed optic will be the norm, and having something that isnít the size and shape of a US Mail box has some appeal.

    With that said, I imagine itís just a matter of time before they come out with mounts that will work for some other striker pistols.

    Around the 3:40 mark of the video at this review there is a view of re-acquiring the dot through recoil on a Glock 43.

    I'm going to give the micro a shot on my 48. I tried to order one this morning from Europtics and Optics Planet but both say back ordered. Optics planet says a 5-7 month back order. Anyone know where they are in stock?

    Minor thread rant. The Truth about guns guy may be a great dude and very knowledgeable but...

    If you really want me to believe in what you are shooting and/or how you are shooting, then film it so I can see the hits in real or near real time.

    Adding a bit of helpful commentary would be appreciated as well.


    Just hammering rounds down range with no frame of reference at all as to distance/groups etc. is quite frustrating.


    For Example:
    Hear I am at the 7 yrd line and I can just hammer an 8 inch plate as fast as I can pull the trigger with this sight...

    I am at the 15 and I am able to reliably make hits on an IDPA headbox with .5 sec splits all day long...not something I can reliably do with iron sights.

    I struggle with one handed shooting and I found using this sight...


    Thank you for listening.

    Yep, I considered that aspect of Truth about Guns. Why I zeroed in on the videography part.

    A trek through some Iowa flood plain in marginal winter weather made me much happier with my old Ultra-Dot than a buddy's (brand redacted) new "open reflex sight" made him. Despite all the "other" types that have come down the pike in the last ten years, I still prefer a fully enclosed optic.

    There is lots of chatter about finding the dot and other considerations that donít apply to those of us shooting a dot now. What I want to know, is how does performance with this new optic compare to performance with other red dot optics. So far, I have seen zero data on that point.

    I can see this (or more likely, a future version of this concept) being hugely popular.

    The reason being simplicity and cost.

    Theres what - 8-10 million Glocks in the the US? The vast majority without an MOS cut.

    And adding a RMR cut to a legacy pistol Glock is $175, plus cost of a new set of suppressor heigh sight ($50), and the hassle of sending the slide out for 4-6 weeks.

    With this or similar system, the user just knocks off the existing rear sight, and instals this. Order the thing from Amazon, 3 days later your legacy Glock is Red Dot equipped, with a savings of $225 vs having the gun milled.

    I can see a future version, where instead of this:


    They flip the battery mount so that its parallel with the rear of the slide:

    Iím sure they would have done that, but it would require a much smaller battery... ala ACRO. Unless of course you have a self-cleaning Glock...
