I had 2 glitches. The screws that hold the Vortex roto the mount kept loosening (need locktight) and the battery on the top of Vortex popped open 3 different times and flow off the slide. I had to look for it on the floor and was lucky not to lose it. This I think is fixed. If it does it next time at the range it's being returned as defective. Neither of these issues are serious. I really liked this sight. Now on to a S&W 3rd Gen. Possible guns I would like to put it on are a 5906, 4006TSW, 457, or my 4506-1. 4006TSW and 5906 and 4506 are my prime candidates. More to come..
I still have the option to get any slide milled but I don't was to muck up a slide.
+1 ^^^^^My sentiments exactly!
I struggled for years with declining eyesight and tried every type of premium iron sight. The SIG X-RAY-3's on my P365 and P229 worked best and they're fine for close-range SD but past 7 yards it's a stretch, past 10 forget it, my 'ol eyes can't see both the target and irons at the same time.
Then a miracle happened about 3 years ago.......I discovered Red Dots. I'm back in the game at my local club, runn'in and gunn'in with young guys who are certainly faster, but few as accurate! With a '7' in front of my age, I'm happy just being in the middle of the pack.
