Omaha Outdoors has many micro red dot optic ready pistols for sale. Optic ready handguns were once within the realm of hunting and competition only, but as micro red dots have improved in reliability and battery life and many new micro optics have emerged on the market, they are now squarely within the territory of concealed carry and duty as well as service pistols. Find your next pistol and outfit it with a micro red dot all in one place – Omaha Outdoors.
There are a lot of reasons why one might want to purchase an optic ready handgun or even go all the way and put the optic on your pistol now. You see, it's not necessary to use a red dot even if you buy a pistol with the slide milled for this new type of sighting system. With products like the ZEV Technologies RMR cover plate, you can future-proof your pistol collection by setting yourself up to use an optic in the future when finances allow or when you've decided it's finally time to take the plunge, but in the meantime, you can continue to use the good old reliable pistol iron sights.
But if you have decided to go with a pistol optic now, you'll be relieved to know that you have many options which were simply not available even five years ago. The Trijicon RMR has long been experimented with as a pistol optic, but it was with the release of the RMR 2.0 that the company went all-in to the pistol optic category. You see, while the original RMR served quite well in that role, it was originally designed as a piggyback optic, something to mount on the top or the side of a magnified riflescope on a carbine or sniper rifle. The forces involved in such a setup, a stationary optic encountering recoil, are quite different than those of a pistol red dot, where the optic is attached to a heavy object (the slide) which is itself accelerating and decelerating very quickly thousands of times. Trijicon saw what people were doing with their optics and made improvements and adjustments for these purposes. In the RMR 2.0 guise, the Trijicon is ideally suited for pistol optic use.
Other optic companies haven't ignored what was happening in the marketplace, though. Docter Optics micro red dots have been in use by military units for several years with good reports on reliability and effectiveness. Famed American optic maker Leupold has jumped into the fray with the Leupold Delta Point Pro, a premium optic meant to go toe-to-toe with the world's best. There's also the Vortex Viper, from a company which has become very popular in the last decade thanks in no small part to their dedication to quality and customer service.
The best optic in the world would mean nothing without putting it on a solid foundation, and that's where we come in. We offer for sale the most popular pistols ready to go out of the box, including optic ready 1911 handguns for the ultimate in heavyweight point and shoot accuracy, one single stack mag at a time. The Glock MOS is an outstanding deal direct from the factory for those who prefer the Austrian varietals – now with American flavor as well – and Walther Arms has also waded in with pistols like the PPQ Q5 Match and PPQ Q4 TAC. If the manufacturer doesn't offer the pistol you want in the configuration you need, we can custom mill slides for an HK VP9 or CZ P-10 C, among others.
Attaching a micro red dot to your pistol can make it much easier to shoot at long distance, where the single red dot being placed on the target makes a much better aiming point than trying to perfectly line up big, chunky pistol sights meant for fast shooting up close. However, it can also improve your rapid fire shooting up close, where a glowing red dot visible in all lighting conditions is something that will immediately attract your eye. Depending on the pistol and the way it was milled, you may be able to use front and rear sights with your new red dot. If so, and you want to continue using them, you'll need suppressor height sights, as the bottom of the optic is likely to interfere with stock height sights. These have the side benefit, as the name implies, of being compatible with sound suppressors as well. However, for the ultimate in fast shooting, you may want to go without iron sights entirely. It will take some getting used to, and you'll want to make sure you have a reliable optic like those mentioned above, but the effectiveness of such a pistol just can't be beat.
