Optics for the 10mm
« on: June 22, 2017, 07:34:54 AM »
I have two G40MOS with Vortex Venoms on them.
I need suggestions for optics for two RIA 1911 long slides, 1 has mounting holes drilled in the side of the frame, and for an EAA Witness Hunter. (Intercooler??)

A lot of eaa witnesses come with FRAME mounted optic mount holes. Optic is mounted above the slide, but attached to the frame.

Sort of off topic, but I am very curious about your opinion of, and experience with, the Vortex sights. I've been looking at getting one for my G40 for hunting.

Any issues of note?

Anything you wish they did/had that they don't?

Thanks

With the price of RMRs at Cabelas, I don't see the reason. 

I've got a Viper and two RMRs......

Im satisfied with them. I like the fact that I dont have to take the sight off of the gun to change a battery.
They seem to hold up good.

Well I guess you get what you pay for, but these guns are toys, and I can buy 3  Vortex for what an RMR costs and when they work I don’t have to take them off to change the battery.......

Ill send these two back and get two new ones, these guns will be down for a bit. Ill just kep killing deer with my 460 XVR....

I am one of those guys that puts glass on my guns that usually cost significantly more than the gun itself in some cases. Better glass can make much better shooter out of many of us and the guns we shoot.
