    Can you elaborate on the refresh rate issue?
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    Thereís a picture in this thread that kind of shows what it looks like.

    https://forums.brianenos.com/topic/2...-refresh-rate/

    Basically it looks like the old stop motion flip books. Instead of a streak of red with movement, I see dots and gaps like Morse code. Itís harder to track than a smooth line.

    Iíll see if I can video what it looks like in motion.

    Delayed until mid-Jan

    I got an email from Shield saying pandemic disruptions pushed ETA to mid Jan which isnít unexpected.

    I am asking if they can change my order to the 8MOA dots since Iím afraid that the 4MOA will be unusable like the 4 MOA RMSc.

    To my eye, every manufacturerís MOA rating is different and not comparable. Also optic window distance from the eye seems to matter a lot too.

    Even though my SRO is a 5 MOA itís a ton more usable than a Shield 4MOA that visually looks like the 2 MOA of a 507c.

    Confirmation of change to 8MOA

    Okay, they changed to 8MOA dots so Iím happy about that.

    I also ordered RMR to RMS adapter plates so I can use them on my Open guns.

    Adapter plates

    Picked up a few of these to use as the easy button on some of my RMR/SRO equipment.

    When the RMSX gets here, I can try them out on my open guns and see if it gets rid of the SRO double dot.

    Got notice that the sights shipped so might get a chance to try them on my PCCs.

    That wide lense might be a nice fit in an offset 45* mount if you decide to run 2 dots like some people do.

    My friend used one on his Open gun yesterday. Loved it and said his SRO optics may become displaced. Justine W said it reminded her of a Romeo 3 XL.

    I think mine are set to arrive tomorrow.

    I was concerned about how bad the 4 MOA refresh was on the smaller units so I had them change my pre-order to 8MOA.

    Iím kind of taking a break from pistols so theyíll probably just sit in the box lol.
