    New guy and ? about DeltaPoint for FNX 45 T.

    Hi New guy here always been a Sig guy but I just picked up an FNX 45T. I was just curious if I needed the cross slot mount or all mount version of the DeltaPoint. Thanks!

    The FNXT's slide is milled only for either the Docter optics or Trijicon RMR. Don't know if any base for the Deltapoint would work.

    So I called Leupold and they said that the Deltapoint Pro does not require a mounting base and the rear locking screws have been removed. So DeltaPoint Pro is 100% ready for the FNX 45-T

    Cool!!! The Deltapoint PRO is much better than the rest.

    to the Forum, make sure you pick up the PRO, there was a problem on the Deltapoint's predecessor because the rear iron sight blocked access to the "adjustment lock screws". Please post a picture when you get it mounted,

    I have been on the lookout for the Deltapoint Pro for a while. Is it available anywhere except the Leupold store? They don't appear to be up for purchase at Brownells, Midway, Cabela's, etc.

    I was excited about the Deltapoint 2, but I'm worried about the DP Pro. It looks like it has that tinted look to the glass that I absolutely cannot stand (like the RMR). The original DP was perfectly crystal clear!


    This came from Leupold directly "The Deltapoint 2 is no longer coming out because this March we are releasing the new Deltapoint Pro."

    A little bit of clarification: there are two things you will need to correct in order to mount the DP Pro in the FNX factory milled slide. First, about 1mm of material will need to be shaved off either the DP Pro or the slide. The front of the optic is rounded so there is a point that is about 1mm too long to fit in the factory milled area. Shaving material off the DP Pro is much easier and will not be noticable once it's mounted in the slide. See below.

    The second issue is much easier to solve. Once you shave off the material, the DP Pro's screw holes perfectly line up with the smaller, inside holes of the FNX's milled slide. However, you will need new screws. The screws that come with the FNX are too short and the screws that come with the DP Pro are a metric size. You will need #5-40 x 5/8" long flat head machine screws. Alternatively, you could buy a 5-40 die and run the DP Pro's screws through it and re-cut the threads.

    Definitely not "plug and play" but in my opinion, totally worth it. I'd take the DP Pro over the RMR any day. Small amount of work for the best micro red dot on the market.

    Not at all. I will do it Monday or Tuesday. The product manager at Leupold reached out to me and I'm going to take it in to show them the fitment on the FNX (I live 10 minutes from their headquarters). After I show them, I'll post pictures of the modification.
