Any of you run a Vortex Venom?
I can't afford the high prices reflex sights, so I'm looking at the venom.
How doesn't it hold up, keeping zero and not having the dot go out?
Why is it your least favorite? What makes the others better?I also have a DeltaPoint Pro, Sig Romeo 1, and Shield RMS and although the Venom is my least favorite of the ones I have, I still like it and consider it to be the best value of all of them with the great Vortex warranty to go along with it.
I will not have a reflex sight that I have to remove the unit, in order to change the battery. I also use it for silhouette shoots and don't like to have to re-sight the gun, after changing the battery. I have yet to see one that doesn't have to be. Even if it's off an inch at 25 yards, that's too much.If you're looking at vortex then go with the viper. The venom was not originally designed for use on a pistol slide and the viper was. Mine lasted 6-7k rounds or so and was still working great when I sold it.
U could also look at the holosun 407c which is around the same price. U can also find a leupold deltapoint pro used for 300 or so, I just sold one for 275

I wish the window of the Venom was a little bigger and I wish it had a rear notch like the Shield RMS or allowed for a rear sight attachment like the DPP. I also feel there is a little more distortion through the glass than the others. But like I said... I have 2 of them so I obviously like the Venom. Well worth the price.Why is it your least favorite?
