    Anyone considering Production optics

    I am thinking of giving this a go. Mainly so I can buy a new gun and to be fair, for half the price of a decent open gun.
    My eyes are also not what they used to be so it may be an easier transition from standard div without the cost when the time comes.

    Anyone on the forum had a go or is well into it?

    What gun and optic did you go with?

    I have a setup in mind but not sold on it yet.
    I think I have a few years of playing around in standard div as a senior shooter but wouldn't mind shooting one big shoot of the year in PO.
    @Ozzy already told me I was gay for thinking about it

    I'll give you $20 for your standard gun when you give up and go to the new old person division

    I'm triggered!!!

    Just because I identify as a 14yr old ballerina doesn't mean I am gay!!

    I would maybe go a different optic as the romeo doesn't have good reviews in some instances.
    Pretty fragile being one of them.
    I am thinking a Sig pistol tho.

    A small optic like that on an AR would suit your beady eyes

    I got started shooting production optics a couple of weeks back. I thought I'd easily transition to dot shooting due to back ground with rifles, but damn I keep looking at the dot like a front sight post...making close shots really slow....range stuff is accurate...haven't really tried strong or week hand yet.
    Running a Shadow 2 OR with a RMR ....a hell of a lot nicer than my Glock 17 MOS + RMR . The problem is even production guns the price is steep, throw on a decent optics...
    If your eyes are failing , and the thought of buying an open gun makes you cringe you know a 9mm gun that you will always be able to feed cheaply is there. Tried a CZ P10optics gun yesterday...was nice though the grip size was wrong and my natural point of aim was way off.

    I was thinking of a leupold or trijicon on a 320 X5.

    How is your optic affixed to the shad 2?
    I would prefer a Cz but didn't know it could be done without to much hassle

    I researched the mounting on a shadow or shadow 2.
    All good.
    Pretty simple really.

    Be aware although CZ advertises the mounting plates for various optics the S2 OR only comes with the plate for RMRs and other plates aren't in NZ, in fact the only other adapter plate I've ever seen in stock is for the Shield and I've not heard great reviews of that optic.

    Get details from @Ozzy of Ash from Ashburton who is making mounts I'm pretty sure.
