The Leupold DeltaPoint Pro is one of our favorite pistol optics. Its large window keeps a good amount of the target in view while engaging, and the ability to change batteries without removing the optic is convenient. Pressing the brightness control on top of the battery compartment brings the brightness up or down. The brightness control always moves in one direction, either up or down. Once you reach the brightest or lowest setting it reverses direction. Holding the button down for 2 seconds reverses the direction without having to go all the way to the top or bottom of the settings.
This is the 2.5 MOA version of the Deltapoint.
The DeltaPoint Pro also features motion sensor technology to help prolong the battery life. The battery compartment is water resistant to 33 feet.

This is the big question. We like the RMR more for conceal-carry due to the fact you can easily adjust the brightness. It’s also a smaller optic and there are more sights on the market that co-witness. The Deltapoint is obviously more cost effective, the window is larger, and the glass is clearer. A lot of it comes down to personal preference. Both are very viable optics.
What distance should I zero my handgun at?
The most popular pistol zero is 25 yards. But… we’ve found that an accurate 10 yard zero is generally more effective and the holds are much flatter out to 100 yards compared to a 25 yard zero. Our recommendation is that you zero for 10, make sure your group is tight, and then tailor your zero as you shoot. Particularly if you have somewhere you can shoot some distance. Like 50+ yards. Yes. With a pistol. You can do it. We believe in you.
Can I rack my slide off this optic like an RMR?
Yup! We haven’t had any issues with ours while doing that. Rack away.
What’s the battery life like?
Lucas changes his out every 6 months or so. Even with the auto-off feature. Good news is, since the battery is top loaded, it’s very easy to change it quickly and be back up and running in no time.
