    I can not describe the envy I have right now. I’ve been wanting one of those S&B’s for awhile now and saving coin towards one. Got a little put off though with a review that said the dot wasn’t bright enough outside, wasn’t sure how much merit to put into that.

    So, been debating Kahles recently also, especially with their 1-8x coming out.

    That said, I want to know ALL your thoughts on the S&B!

    Haha. I got this one for a steal, traded a guy an Elcan and MRDS. First impressions on the S&B, glass is amazing, clarity is better than anything I have looked at. The dot seems plenty bright from me holding it close to some led lights, the dot doesn't wash out until I put it right in front of the light. Itll be a few weeks until I get it out to shoot, hopefully picking up a mr762 soon.

    That.... is a steal. Especially given that I’ve never even owned a car worth as much as that optic goes for new.

    I can’t a hold a dot washing out when placed directly over an LED against it. My UH-1 and MRO also wash out against an LED even on their brightest settings.

    Guess I’ll keep saving until I can confirm something else is better or as good. Looking forward to continued reports.

    Dude MRDS and an ELCAN? That's a deal all day long, especially how ELCAN prices have dropped in the last year. Nice score.

    Never used a S&B in the field, but did get to look through a couple of dozen back at Era3 when they were building bolt guns. Phenomenal glass.

    Due to in part of a condition referred to as hyperopia combined with extreme mild presbyopia (not really fully symptomatic), I have unfortunately retreated from iron sight operations in the near term. Some impending surgery may alleviate that eventually.

    All that said, it's got a better FOV than a RMR. Foot print is pretty close to the RMR, although slightly more forward on the slide. The grip angle is more towards RMR (but not completely) than my T-1, but the difference seems to be negligible. I stopped shooting my RMR in the last few months due to negative training. I'd like to get back to irons eventually, just to maintain the skill.

    I understand your reluctance to split the difference.

    Take care of the vision!

    It does look like it'd handle better than a micro.

    Thanks. Re-reading, I made it sound more dramatic than I had intended. Basically I'm far-sided with impending age also reducing any near-sightedness I might have even more (everyone will have that happen as they age). LASIK will help with the former, and help simplify with the eventual inevitability of the latter.

    But at the end of the day, I felt like the ACRO would be more at home on a G17 than a G19. Then again, I enjoy shooting a G17 more than a G19, so I'm sure there's some bias.

    I should have starting shooting with a red dot way sooner with pistols. They're a great tool.... and much like rifles, I feel like I need to outfit or try to outfit most of them!
