A Marine’s tips for carrying pistols with reflex sights: holsters | SOFREP

Early this year the Army announced they had selected the Sig P320 (M17) as their official sidearm.  The modular handgun has continued to be a hit among gun enthusiasts, aided by the addition of RX models to the product line.  Naval Special Warfare recently added the Glock 19 to their inventory, also capable of a slide-mounted reflex sight.  Regardless of your personal preference, if you are interested in a slide-mounted reflex sight there are some solid options available with the Sig Romeo1, Trijicon RMR, and Leupold DeltaPoint.

As special operations units continue to experiment with slide-mounted reflex sights on their service pistols, civilians who are interested in doing the same will generally have a difficult time finding a holster that fits due to the customization required to accommodate the reflex sight.  If you also want to add a weapon-mounted light, the options get even more limited.  Internet boards for gun enthusiasts are filled with questions about where to go for reliable, compatible, custom-made holsters since picking one up from your local gun store is virtually impossible.
