    Enclosed Emitter RDS vs Traditional

    I am considering swapping out my current pistol red dot (507k X2) for one of the newer fully enclosed EPS Carry versions (also from Holosun).

    Keep in mind I'm not being a latest and greatest gear guy. I however was thinking about replacing the one I have now and moving the "old one" to a new gun.

    I will need to get a second optic one way or another so that's really a moot point. It's really just a matter of what I ultimately will get.

    What I am asking about is, in your opinion are fully enclosed optics really that much better than the traditional designs? If given the chance to go with a fully enclosed optic would you do so and why or why not?

    Is the 507K not doing it's job? Or just peace of mind?

    It's doing its job just fine. I am planning on putting a red dot on a second pistol that has the exact same footprint as 507k and one of the new enclosed dots.

    I will need to buy another optic regardless so my options are as of now to get another 507K or get one of the new enclosed ones.

    I'm kind of wondering/asking if for an EDC if the enclosed one would offer any major benefits (or not) which would possibly dictate what I buy in the end.

    The new pistol will be a P322 so whatever I use on that is fine. The thought process as of now is, since I already have a 507k to move it over and put an enclosed one on my EDC.

    Before I do it though I was wondering if anyone had anything major to say good or bad.

    About the only pros that I can think of is the enclosed one will help with stuff not getting in the optic and/or maybe fogging issues.

    It's not going to be a common thing but it will be a lot more likely that I will have my EDC with me even in really bad weather hence the idea of the enclosed dot.

    That said I've never had a single problem with my 507k.
