Leupold’s DeltaPoint Pro is an optic designed for those who don’t just demand speed, but depend on it. Its soul speaks to tactical operators and self-defense practitioners, while its attributes also make it perfect for hunters who need to make quick shots at close ranges. Whether on the battlefield, at the range, or hunting dangerous game, the DeltaPoint Pro takes on whatever you dish out.

Simply put, this rugged reflex sight is built for speed and abuse. Its lightweight aluminum housing, shrouded in spring-steel armor, can withstand recoil after recoil, while its tried-and-true design can be used to charge your slide without affecting your zero. Combine that with a crystal clear lens and enormous field of view, and you’ve got a sight that’s ready to elevate your pistol, rifle, or even shotgun to new heights.

Feature-Packed Design

When it comes to features, the DeltaPoint Pro delivers in spades. It maintains Leupold’s Motion Sensor Technology (MST), which puts the sight into a battery-saving standby mode after five minutes of inactivity. When the MST detects motion, it instantly activates the sight, so it’s ready when you are. A manual mode allows the sight to be shut off when not in use. Meanwhile, a time-saving auto-brightness sensor continuously samples the ambient light and adjusts the DeltaPoint Pro to provide optimal reticle intensity. Again, a manual adjustment can override the auto-brightness sensor if you need a specific setting.

A tool-free, spring-loaded battery compartment makes changing the standard CR2032 battery a breeze. Your battery will also sport a healthy lifetime, especially with the added bonus of the MST. The battery can be replaced from the top, eliminating the need to remove the sight from your gun, saving you time and energy in the field or at the range. The 1-MOA elevation and windage adjustments mean there’s no need for adjustment lock screws.

Your reticle won’t wander, either, be it under heavy recoil, extended fire, or both. Its 120-MOA of adjustment room allows for precision changes so you can dial-in your target. Two reticle options are available: A 2.5-MOA red dot or a 7.5-MOA inscribed red delta.

The DP Pro can be installed using one of Leupold’s numerous ready-made mounts, which account for most of the popular handgun platforms in the industry. The company’s cross-slot mount and DLOC mount, respectively, allow you to mount a DP Pro on most rail systems. Whatever task you’ve got in mind, the DeltaPoint Pro should be able to complete it.

Unparalleled Endurance

As with all Leupold products, the DeltaPoint Pro is built to last. The unit is housed in durable yet lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum, so it’s tough. It’s capable of handling recoil without a loss or shift of zero – from .22LR to .458 SOCOM – so even the meanest cartridges or shells won’t rattle it.

DiamondCoat lens coatings on the exterior lens surfaces provide extreme abrasion resistance, ensuring your sight picture remains flawless and clear, no matter how much of a beating your DeltaPoint Pro takes. The spring-loaded battery compartment is also impervious to water at a depth of 33 feet – meaning you aren’t going to have to worry about water fouling up your sight, unless, of course, you’ve just gone and tossed your firearm to the bottom of a nearby lake.

In the event of a battery failure, the optional rear iron sight, which is designed to co-witness with the reflex sight, can save the day. It’s hard to argue with that kind of versatility. Leupold backs the DeltaPoint Pro with its Full Lifetime Guarantee, and the electronics are covered by the company’s Electronics Warranty.

Ready for Anything

The DeltaPoint Pro’s versatility helps maximize its value – the same DP Pro you mount on your handgun or AR build can also find a home on a hunting rifle or turkey gun. It’s an optic designed to add speed to almost any gun.

This is the reflex sight you’ve been waiting for – whether it’s going on your handgun, carbine, or favorite long gun for hunting.

  1. Used one on a G34 MOS and now it’s on a SLR106 using the Attero Arms mount. The field of view is stupid good.

  2. I’ve tried it on my friends Glock, and my Trijicon RMR blows it away. I have four RMR’s and they are far superior to any other optic.

    • Please elaborate. I’ve checked out a bunch of reviews but they’re all garbage. What makes the RMR so much better? Thanks.

      • Gun-Diva-ism makes it better. *sigh*

        Having shot through both, that major difference it the field of view, assuming the both have the same reticle. You would get used to either. Get the one that make you wet. You’re good either way.

  3. Shoot both the DPP and RMR. Prefer the RMR hands down. DPP is harder to adjust then brightness since you cannot see what is happening because your finger is in the way. Also the lowest picitinny rail mount for the DPP is still big and high. Solid performance though.

    • Forget to mention that I have the extra rear iron. Well executed but never found a front sight that matches up with it. Price for the iron is absurd.

      By the way, got mine years ago. And I wonder if the author Mr/Mrs Sponsored Content ever used one? Or did Mr. Content just read the box?

  4. My buddy has one on his SP01… I have RMR on my PPQ… the Deltapoint has awesome FOV, but the RMR is more rugged and easier to adjust… cost is also a factor. Pick whatever you prefer.

  5. I question the legitimacy of this review—no DeltaPoint Pro has an “auto-brightness” feature.
