Was excited about this until I just watch the sage video.

SRO is a big fail- at this price point anyway.

For a hobby grade optic -Iíll spend less and buy a Delta point or something from primary arms or Vortex or even Sig.

Bummer cause I was really starting to like this.

This couldíve been really great.

I guess if you’re a competition shooter it’s OK.......But when I see the word Trijicon I think duty or defense or military use.

And I agree. I think Iíll stick with what I have for now. Iím guessing there will be an improved Gen 2 SRO in the future.

That was me, I apologize. I didn't mean to say you were spreading FUD. Just whoever told you "sounds like FUD."

Looks like they were right. It is in fact much more fragile than the RMR. Hard to believe from a $500+ optic meant for Competition, in which people do drop their guns a lot. (Happened to me last year, when my pistol hit the sidemirror of a prop motorcycle on an IPSC stage. It fell hard, I doubt the SRO would have survived it)

I cancelled my order for the SRO. I compete with my carry guns, and I can't have an optic that can't survive a relatively reasonable drop test fail on me either on competition or more importantly when I'm carrying it as a civilian either.

Suddenly I like my RMR's a lot more now. I'm still open for an improved RMR though, with a larger window.

Well, my slide is back from battlewerx in about 2 days so I was coming back to see if anything else had been posted about this. I originally ordered it and then cancelled for the new HE508T from holosun which hasn't come out yet either (it was originally expected in early june, no idea now).

I'm not sure what to buy. I'm seeing the RMR's pop up for $375-425 recently

Default Dust cover for SRO

I'm surprised the SRO do not come with a dust cover. For a $500+ optical sight you would think it'll come with some kind of dust cover. I hope the after market will come out with one.

guns are dropped a lot? I don't compete every weekend but I've never seen it happen. Sure it does sometimes, but using it as the reason not to get this one is a bit extreme if you ask me. Personally I think this is great, and it just might convince me to try out optics divisions. I don't have anything with an optic, mostly because I don't like how tiny most are.
