Default Red dot sights for pistols

I'm interested in finding a red dot sight for pistols. I've seen a few being used at three gun shoots and a few other places but haven't seen them at any of the local shops or gun shows and nobody I've asked there seems to know anything about them. Does anyone here have any experience with one and/or know of any manufacturers who make them. Thanks.

Look in Shotgun News for the J&G sales ads...

The Trijicon RMR and Leupold Deltapoint are both really nice red dot style sights. If you're looking for something that's good and a bit more price friendly, check out the C-More mini red dot or the Burris Fastfire.

The Leupold delta point is really nice because it comes with so many mounting pieces. If you decide to switch the sight from a Glock to a 1911 it can do that in a heartbeat as well as most common handguns on the market.

I'm a C-more fan. I have one on my Ruger 22/45 and it is a nice product. I use it in Steel Challenge events. I also see them a lot at IPSC events.

You can try Trijicon. They have GREAT red dot sights. also, try crimson trace lasers. its not a red dot but has the same principle.
