Finally got around to getting one of my VP9s milled. Went with Primary Machine based on some recommendations from guys on P-F. Slide was refinished with black nitride. Took her out Sunday evening to get a rough zero and quick practice session in before the range closed. I had a G19 set up with an RMR several years ago before I made the transition to HK, and I forgot just how awesome the RMR is at providing feedback about the quality of the trigger press. Learning to accept the wobble and trust the dot leads to pretty decent split times while getting quality hits—I put about 150 rounds through the repair center shown below, mostly relatively fast-paced (pairs and Bills) from 5-15 yards, just working on acquiring the dot and tracking it through recoil. More practice is needed, for sure, but I can already see myself putting RMRs on several other guns.
The only thing left to decide is whether to stick with RMRs, or go with an ACRO. This is being carried concealed AIWB in a Phlster Floodlight. My only concern with the ACRO is that the rear of the optic protrudes upward from the slide and occupies the space that is left empty on the RMR between the front portion with the lens and the lower rear part... With the RMR it seems the bulk of the sight sits right above my belt line and has negligible effect on concealment. I’m worried that the Aimpoint will print a little more. Anyone have experience carrying both the RMR and ACRO want to weigh in on how concealment is working out for you in an AIWB holster?
Casey- What was the turnaround time with Primary Machine? Happy with the work?
Has anybody sent stuff to Mark at L&M Precision lately?
LAPD tested the new Romeo Pro or whatever it is and they were surprisingly happy with it. Said it stood up to all their tests.
