    Question Preferred optic for 11.5” pistol?

    Ordered a Sionics pistol w/11.5” bbl awhile back. Won’t be here for awhile yet but looking ahead, I am pondering what optic might be best suited to it.

    Watched MrGnG’s video of the BCM 11.5 pistol and he scoped it with a Trijicon Accupower 1-4x.

    I think Garand Thumb might use Aimpoint Micro for his 11.5 but I need to look/check/confirm.

    Any favorites or suggestions gratefully appreciated, with my thanks in advance ...

    The TA44 Acog with ACSS reticle has been the best gun related purchase I have made. It works great if you have an astigmatism. The awesome glass and extra .5x helps clear up targets at distance for me too.

    I don't feel slower with it, and eye box is good.
    It is from the construction of underground FEMA camps. I can't say more because there a guy parked in front of house in an AMC Pacer. He is acting like he talking on the phone, but I know better.

    I have to sign off now & put my laptop in the microwave.

    From what you said looks like your trying to stretch it out. If you don’t mind the weight go with a 1-8 nxs

    My preferred optic for an 11.5" pistol would be an Aimpoint micro RDS or irons.

    If I expect to be engaging targets beyond the capabilities of these sighting systems, I'll not be using an 11.5" pistol.

    I’d echo the RDS/irons recommendation, unless you’re wanting to test accuracy temporarily. The muzzle velocity out of an 11.5” barrel precludes effective use beyond less than a football field. A red dot seems ideal, but if you do want some magnification capability, the lightest 1-4x you can find seems like it would be an OK choice. I have an old PST 1-4x that works fine, and it’s lighter than the Vortex 1-6x.

    I like the Trijicon MRO. I think it is a good value for the price.

    RD and BUIS on my AR pistols.
    I’m good to a minimum of 200 yds. As said, if I need a LPVO it won’t be on a pistol.

    I personally have fixed Daniel Defense front and rear sights, and an Aimpoint T1 on on my 11.5" BCM pistol, and I think it works for me, minus the astigmatism.
