Why Red Dots on handguns are the future for the military
Travis Pike | April 21, 2021
As a slow lumbering beast, the military is often rarely fast to acquire and accept new technology. One such example is the adoption of red dot sights on handguns. The world of competition shooting, elite police forces, and everyday joes are full of red dot-equipped handguns. I have good news for you: and it doesn’t seem like the military protests the idea too much.
CAG aka Delta Force loves their handgun red dots.
The best evidence I can offer is the new SIG M18 and M17 pistols. All four branches have adopted the new SIG pistols and will begin fielding them soon. Every M17 and M18 pistol features a slide cut for a Leupold Deltapoint Pro. While DPPs are not being fielded just yet, the possibility exists.
USSOCOM, or United States Special Operations Command, has been fielding the Trijicon RMR Type 2 since at least 2018, with elite forces fielding them for years and years now. General Austin Miller, Commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, carries a highly customized Glock complete with a Leupold Deltapoint Pro. https://www.sandboxx.us/blog/why-red-dots-on-handguns-are-the-future-for-the-military/
