Leupold Deltapoint Pro

DP_Pro_RearSight_Back

Leupold announced the Deltapoint 2 last year at Shot Show. However the past year they kept pushing the release further back. Well now they have canceled the Deltapoint 2 and are coming out with the Deltapoint Pro.

 

Here is a video of the Deltapoint 2 from last year’s Shot Show.

 

The Deltapoint Pro has some significant improvements over the vaporware Deltapoint 2. The DP2 switched from torx to hex screws for the elevation and windage adjustments. Well the DP Pro scrapped that and went with big slotted adjustment screws. You could probably use a dime, or similarly small coin to adjust them. Leupold added a spring steel shroud to protect the aluminum housing. Leupold even has an optional integrated adjustable rear iron sight. I am not sure how you utilize that rear iron sight. I think you would install the DP Pro on an optics ready pistol and use a tall front sight. If you install the DP Pro via a dovetail mount I think the rear irons will be too tall to find a matching front sight to co-witness properly.

 

The DP Pro has a MSRP of $599.99, a little bit higher than the proposed DP2 which was at $450.

The DP Pro has two reticle options.

I am sure we will see and learn more at Shot Show 2015 coming up in just two weeks time.

    You could probably use a dime, or similarly small coin to adjust them.
    Are we looking at the same picture? Did they scale the Pro up 4 times the size of the Deltapoint? Because otherwise I’m not at all seeing even the potential of using a coin.

    • sauerquint

      As was clearly stated in the article they are using pictures of the DP2 while describing the changes that will go into the Pro.

      • Squirreltakular

        Nope. That’s definitely a picture of what they were describing to be the Pro. You can see the steel shroud, back up irons, and slotted adjustment screws, all stuff the DP2 wasn’t going to have.

        • JumpIf NotZero

          Exactly.

          There is clearly a video right next to TFB’s pic! Some people….

      So long as it’s not mounted on anything… I can believe a dime would work. On a gun? No way.

    • Andrew

      Yes, you can use a dime. Or a penny, a house key, the rim of a cartridge casing, etc. Obviously you’ve never used a Trijicon RMR, they have the same adjusters.

      • JumpIf NotZero

        Wow, thats “obvious” huh? Wierd.

        Because the RMR I had I never used a coin on, I used a small driver, and the RMR has much wider slots. But, cool, whatever.

    $600…. I’d write LOL but I’m not sure that actually funny. I get that no one sells at MSRP, and that good optics are worth paying for, but this is just outside of the ballpark… Esp considering how poorly tactical gear is going to sell over the next year.

    • That’s $600 without the rear iron sight, too. I like the concept, but they should have simplified and developed a version with a molded-in rear sight. In fact, the PFI SOPS-Compact has a feature very much like that, although I’ve never seen PFI ever advertise it. Maybe I’ll ask them about it.

      The price is probably due to the dot being a mere 2.5 MOA. The smaller the overall size of the red dot, and the smaller the actual dot, the higher the price.
      I’m still waiting for a red dot I can flip down (like iron sights) when in storage. Just because.

      • Jon Hammett

        I just bought a Mepro Tru-dot RDS (still waiting for it) for $400 and it has a 1.8 MOA dot, motion-sensing auto-on, and extreme ease of use (all from what I have read). Much better value from Mepro than this Leupold is my opinion.

        • Sadler

          The Leupold is significantly smaller than the Mepro. 41 grams versus 300 grams. That’s where the extra cost comes in.

          • Jon Hammett

            Didn’t even think about that. I guess if you are going for light weight, this is the sight for you!

    a little bit higher? 25% seem like a little more than a little bit, you know, like awwwwwwww
