    Tim, not having a CORE etc I've gone the Atei shim sight route. While I do not have the measurement, AmeiGlo has a front sight that works with the Shim Sight

    The CORE BUIS are grotesquely tall (and sharp), and I can't imagine carrying anything taller. I used to have an Acro on a CORE, and didn't have issues, but I can't remember what plate I used. Wouldn't this work with the OEM BUIS:

    Anyone know offhand what size sights will work with that combo? I've been looking at Dawson's .405" rear and .320" front as a possibility.
    I took my P2 off my M&P/ACRO plate and put it back on a Glock, so I don't have pictures, but from my memory the sights were visible but very low in the window - which is how I like them, so I never replaced them.

    I still have my P1 on an M&P, but that one is direct mounted - the dots on the irons are visible on that one.

    Aimpoint ACRO P-2

    Got a chance to put some rounds through these today, and Iím really liking the P2. It is definitely my favorite pistol mounted red dot compared to the others Iíve used (RMR, SRO, 509t x2, 508t x2).

    Unfortunately, it looks like one of mine has some debris inside the front lens to it may need a trip back to Aimpoint. It isnít really noticeable in use, but a little frustrating as long as Iíve waited to get my hands on them.

    I called Aimpoint USA on a lark today, the fellow on the phone told me that they were expecting the covers to come in during summer, probably June, with July being the latest; this would include the entire line, the blacks, the transparents, and even the one with the built-in ARD. Given their issues with the P-2s in general, I'd take the timeline with a grain of salt (especially since the CSR also stated that they were still undergoing testing?), but I am happy to hear that they are coming eventually, I'll throw them on my NODs gun as a back-up RDS (still don't complete trust EOTech) while having the ability to protect it during force-on-force.

    Quick update on battery life. I turned the P2 on, two clicks down from max intensity, when I got the P2 back in December. It has been on continuously since then, and the battery is still going strong.

    Following up on this, I broke out the digital calipers. The factory rear on the pistol I purchased is .405" high.

    I ordered a .450" rear and .360" and a .375" front sight from Dawson Precision. I think between all of those I'll be able to get the co-witness I'm looking for.

    I had the same problem with my P-2 with Dawson plate. I removed the two small rubber o-rings from the top of the plate and now the P-2 sits flat.

The box said it comes with two mounting screws and two o rings, but there were no o-rings in the box and there is a third screw that if installed helps to lock down the p-2, but keeps your firing pin from working. I am going to connect with CHPWS and see what they say, but I have a feeling I am up shit creek until Dawson comes out with a acro p-2 plate, or CHPWS can help.
