Thinking about swapping my Holosun for DPP or R1P

Both of my EDC pistols are cut for the R1P/DPP. I currently run a 7.5MOA DPP on one and a Holosun on the other. I like my Holosun but I think I want something with a native mount as opposed to a plate. I don't see the point in have the slide milled and Cerekoted right now so my choices seem to be a Romeo 1 Pro or Delta Point Pro. The DPP I currently have (and will keep) has the 7.5MOA triangle. I'd like to stay with a larger dot/triangle as all of my pistols are for defense as opposed to competition. Besides, my eyes are getting old.

Here's my problem, the 7.5MOA DPP is discontinued and nobody has them except a very few who want an exhorbitant amount of money. My choice then (if I want another DPP) is the 2MOA dot. Not sure if that would be big enough. The R1P can be had with a 6MOA dot which would be fine and they seem to be getting in stock (although with a 2-3 week lead time). I saw one today for $400 which seems good but I haven't heard yet if it's actually in stock.

I have an original Romeo 1 on my full size RX and it was ok but I've never actually seen an R1P. Not sure what the actual difference is other than it's supposed to be a little stouter.

I've looked in the Classified section and can't find a 7.5MOA DPP. Anybody have any leads on a 7.5MOA DPP? If anybody has had both the DPP and R1P, which one did you like the most and why?

HAGO!

I can’t answer those questions, but I’ve found if the dots seem too tiny for me, turning up the brightness helps me see them better.

Isn’t the R1P a 2.5 or 3? I would choose one of those over a 2. My Romeo 1s are 2.5 or 3 (I forget) and I find them okay (62 yoa, progressive trifocals, astigmatism, if that helps).

Looks like there's a choice between 3 and 6MOA for the R1P.

Just FYI, at $400+ for a new optic you are in the same price range of a slide thatís already cut for an RMR/Holosun that would get rid of the adapter plate and allow you to keep your HoloSun optic...

I would take a look at NORSSO, GGP, ZEV, etc before deciding...

At least thatís what I did because the green reticle HoloSun works better for my astigmatism...

I have the R1P on my X Compact RXP and the DPP on the X5. Honestly I prefer the DPP as far as the MOA of the dot. 2.5 on the DPP and 6 on the R1P.

I can't really use the irons due to my sight so a dot is what I have to go with.

I think the DPP is a better product although the R1P has better features. Brightening up the R1P makes the dot visually too big even at 7 yards and I'm not sure if it has held it's zero. I need to re-check that this week. The DPP when brighter still looks good and "feels" larger. I just hate the single brightness adjustment button.

Not sure this has helped you at all. Lol

And I agree that using a sight without a plate would be better.

I've been playing with the R1P and 3MOA dot.
I like it.
Your post makes me glad I didn't get 6MOA

I wish the RXP came with the 3 MOA dot. It works fine but with a smaller dot the "steadiness" on target is much better. Although the larger dot is easier to pick up.

DPP is taller than most other red dot. It does not allow proper co-witness with suppressor-height sights. One can still manage to "look over" and use the iron sight if needed, because it is just a hair too tall. It is a very small inconvenience. This may be something of consideration for EDC pistols, if one prefers natural co-witness.

True, but I can tell you that co-witnessing with the R1P with SHS is difficult. The dot winds up at the below the dot of the front site. That's the true POA/POI.

I have been through all of the sights mentioned above over the last two years and honestly you would be well served with either the DPP or the R1P. The biggest difference between the R1P and the R! is that the R1P is the same footprint as the Deltapoint pro. The R1 is not.
Personally I prefer the DPP, It is more than rugged enough and gets the job done. I have 2 and they have taken quite a bit of abuse. As said above, Turning the brightness up will increase the size incase you cannot find the Triangle. Ill keep an eye out as well for you.

I have the R1P with SIG Super Tall iron sights.
I just look at the dot, I didn't shoot with the irons for comparison.
But the Super Talls are there and easy to see over the R1P.

We put some clay birds up on a sandy bank at about 35 yards.
Smoked 'em with that dot !
It is cheating.

Not quite sure about what you mean by "true POA/POI". Co-witness means one can take aim using either red dot OR iron sight. They each have their own POA/POI and should be zeroed separately. As long as the base of the red dot does not block the view of the iron sight, as is the case of R1 and R1P, co-witness can be achieved.
