Shots fired without failure of slide-mounted Optic Sight?

Don't count rounds, maybe a "few boxes"
Less than 500 Rounds
500 to 2000 Rounds
2001 to 3000 Rounds
3001 to 5000 Rounds
5001 to 10000 Rounds
10001 to 20000 Rounds
Over 20000 Rounds and counting -- what problems?

Sounds like the Viper might be a better choice for the lower mounting height, I choose the Vortex for easy battery replacement.

I have probably 3000 on a Burris FF3 and a Vortex Venom with zero problems.

I just changed the battery because I like to do it on a yearly basis but both batteries had 2016 written on them. I had messed up but batteries were still running fine.

 I have old school Tasco propoints mounted on big bore revolvers and auto loaders that have worked well for over 20 years. My first Burris FF3 lasted just a few hours before turning it's self off ever few shots.  Optics Planet replaced it and it's been working great for over 2 years now. My newest sight a Vortex Venom has been mounted on a 9mm pistol for a little over 6 months and has seen well over 7,500 rounds. I have a total of 9 red dot sights mounted on 22's, 5.56, 300 Blk, 9mm, 44 mag, 45 auto, and 45 colt. Out of those 9 sights only the one has had to be returned for service.

I have 30,000+ on my Accu-Shadow/Deltapoint. If you let the Deltapoint get just a little loose the circuit board will flex and you will have problems.

Gen 1 DP was an absolutely amazing optic. I only wish they didn't have the stupid adjustment locks on the back.

I mounted a 6 MOA Trijicon Type 2 on my P-07 (slide milled by CZ Custom). At least 2500 rounds since installation, it has never failed, nor drifted off its zero.

I have a Venom and a DPP, both mounted on different 9mm 1911s, with between 3k and 4K on each. No issues.  I have 2 more Venoms with over 1,000 rounds on each on a 22/45 and a PPQ.  I like the glass and dot on the DPP better.

Type 2 RMR on a P10C. Slide milled for the optic. Primarily intended for carry use but shot it for 5-6 months in USPSA to put it thru it?s paces and get used to shooting with a dot. Racked up 4-5k rnds during that time with nary a flicker or reason for me to doubt the sight.

Eagerly awaiting delivery of the Trijicon SRO as the optic for my Shadow 2. Primary Machine: you?ll probably be hearing from me once I get the SRO.

DPP 2 on a P09, Slide milled under 10,000 rounds competition and practice only (IPSC) basically started turning itself off and cycling down to sleep mode while shooting, it went back today so fingers crossed, lucky I have identical setup as backup..

Update 1 x week latter a new replacement arrived the old unit had a issue with the circuit board moving ? so total replace ..now to sight it in at the range on Saturday so far great warranty service .

I have two romeo 1, 6moa. One on a CZ Shadow 2 with 2500 rds thru it and still going. The other one on a GP X-calibur with 1500 rds thru it and still going, as well. The first gen romeo 1 in my experience, was no good. 3 warranty service in 6 mos, with only a week worth of shooting. With the second gen, have not had any problem yet. Knock on wood.  ;D
Thank you,
Mark Santos

I have had decent luck out of sig Romeo 1s I got probably 3k through one currently with no issues mounted on a 9mm. But my most surprising one is a JPoint mounted on a 10mm that I use to hunt with. After I killed the first Trijicon on it while mid-hunt they replaced it no questions asked. But after killing the second one at the range while working on some new hand load recipes I decided to go a different direction. So I bought the JPoint and couldn?t be happier over all with it and I am over 5k rounds in with out a hiccup just put the second new battery in it last month.
