That's weird that all the 9mm and .40 cal Glocks aren't on the list. They all use the same sights.

I know, right? At least Leupold could have stated Glock models 1 through 1000, or something to that effect. :P

Not sure why Leupold's list is so definitive. If you go to OpticsPlanet, etc., they have a much more general fitment list:

- Leupold 170902: DeltaPoint Pro Dovetail Mount, Beretta 92 Matte
- Leupold 170904: DeltaPoint Pro Dovetail Mount, 1911 Matte
- Leupold 170905: DeltaPoint Pro Dovetail Mount, HK Matte
- Leupold 170908: DeltaPoint Pro Dovetail Mount, SIG 226 Matte
- Leupold 170910: DeltaPoint Pro Dovetail Mount, Springfield Matte
- Leupold 170906: DeltaPoint Pro Dovetail Mount, Glock Matte
- Leupold 170907: DeltaPoint Pro Dovetail Mount, Kimber Matte
- Leupold 170903: DeltaPoint Pro Dovetail Mount, CZ 75 Matte
- Leupold 170909: DeltaPoint Pro Dovetail Mount, SW MP Matte
- Leupold 170911: DeltaPoint Pro Dovetail Mount, SW Classic Matte
- Leupold 172783: DeltaPoint Pro Dovetail Mount, Ruger American .45, Matte
- Leupold 172784: DeltaPoint Pro Dovetail Mount, Ruger American 9mm, Matte
- Leupold 172645: Deltapoint Pro Dovetail Mount, Marlin 336, Matte
- Leupold 171203: DeltaPoint Pro Dovetail Mount, SW MP CORE, Matte

No one should make decisions for us when it comes to guns and gun carry. If we do things we're not comfortable with because someone told us it's 'right' it becomes a distraction in an event where clarity and simplicity is needed.

If I were a betting man I'd say that Smith & Wesson will likely continue to focus on their core (pardon the pun) products first by rounding out the compacts and Shield's in the M2.0 lineup. I'd be surprised if S&W rolls out the C.O.R.E. until 2018.

Given the excitement for the M2.0 was mainly the enhanced trigger system, the Pro and Pro C.O.R.E. already have upgraded trigger systems so I don't imagine S&W will be in any hurry to replace them. At least, that's my take on it.

Well, I am very happy with the DeltaPoint. After fine-tuning the zero at 12 yards, I ran it through varying distances from 7 to 25 yards and a smidgen beyond.

As with any red dot, and as expected, I needed to compensate the POA for the desired POI at close-range, but from 12 to 25 yards and farther the POA and POI were on the money and only limited by my own free-handed shooting abilities.

The only downside of the DeltaPoint Pro I can see thus far is it's just way too much fun to shoot so my ammo budget is going to need to increase accordingly. ;)

I know how you feel. I think this applies even without a fancy sight. :lol2:
