M&P PC 9L with red dot

Anyone bought a M&P PC 9L with red dot? If so, how is the S&W red dot that comes with it?
Is it something that will usually be swapped out with a better RMR, Deltapoint, or FF3?

Just y'all's thoughts on the supplied optic

I wasn't aware they had a model with a red dot included, this is apparently new since this is the first I have heard about it, I had to go over to S&W to see one for the first time, they don't say who makes it.

Yea exactly,
I'm wasn't sure how long they had this offered myself. I couldn't tell who made it also. I'm not sure if S&W makes it.
Wasn't sure if it is worth buying even if just to have a lesser expensive backup optic or maybe something to put on a smaller gun like a .22 or something

Any info would be great

I just can't see S&W taking one of their top tier performance pistols and putting a $50 - 75 optic on it.
At least I hope this isn't the case.

Is this the one you are speaking of?
https://www.smith-wesson.com/firearm...-red-dot-sight

I don't believe it comes with the optic only mounting for different optics.

Yea that's the one-
I states in the "features" section that " SHIELD SIGHTS SMS-4MOA MiniSight".

I take that it is what it comes with. If it would be a "mount" then why does it state "4 MOA".
The base mount shouldn't have a MOA rating?

I understand what you are saying but I believe that is talking about the slide cut can ALSO except those other optics if you so choose to change it out.

I don't know? That's just the way I'm reading it.

Has anyone bought this or have any thoughts?

Anyway - this has been pretty fun discussion so far. We are trying to assume what the gun comes with - lol

I don't think there is any doubt the optic comes with it, just can't tell who makes it.

Here is what it appears the sight they are using.
Reflex Mini Sight ? SHIELDPSD
I have no knowledge of it because all mine have RMR's but Suarez is offering
that sight on as part of some packages, so I think it must be pretty good or they
would not offer it.

Very interesting. A negative is that it has a polymer frame. Apparently they also have another version that is Al and has a side mount battery tray.

This information relates to the body being aluminum.....the optic is polymer.



AND this one is the polymer frame edition.

The RMS has the Al body. The SMS, which is apparently what comes with the M&P (• SHIELD SIGHTS SMS-4MOA MiniSight), has the polymer body.

"The sight body is moulded from a lightweight polymer which, in testing, has proven to be more resilient than other reflex sights produced by our competitors."
