    Shield RMSc 3-m.o.a. - Any Experience?

    I have been promised delivery on a Springfield Armory Hellcat OSP late next week. Springfield is recommending the Shield RMSc for the red dot. While I know a great deal about Springfield Armory, I know nothing about the company being recommended for the red dot. Since the red dot will cost almost as much as the pistol, I would like to hear what anyone who has used or owned one has to say about it.

    Thanks in advance.

    I carry an XDs with an RMSc and really like it. Any particular questions or concerns?

    I have been told by several people that the "c" is not built to the same standards as their other products. The lense (polycarbonate) apparently scratches easily and it is not water-resistant. A few have recounted that they break fairly easily when dropped.

    If these things were inexpensive, that would be one thing, but at over $400.00 for a carry gun they should work better than what I am hearing. I'm just trying to figure out what is accurate.

    I've been carrying an M&P Shield 45 with the RMSc for several months without issue.

    I haven't dropped or scratched mine, so couldn't speak to that.

    The current RMSc isn't sold as being waterproof, but the Shield FAQs say it's weather resistant and will withstand rain (https://www.shieldpsd.com/faqs). There is a waterproof version of the RMS that has a gasket under it. I did that with my RMS and RMSc before they had this waterproof version by putting black electricians tape on the slide before screwing down, then cutting even with a razor. I wear AIWB while mowing the lawn and can wring my shirt out when done but haven't had any issue with either the RMS or RMSc continuing to work.
