    The DPP uses the Shield footprint? I had no idea!

    Hmmm, I’d be interested in seeing if that true. I’m having a hard time picturing it since the DPP is a huge optic and the others they’re saying are the same foot print are quite a bit smaller...

    Pretty sure it’s true. IIRC, I had to buy the DPP Silencer Maxim 9 mounting plate for my RMS Shield since the Shield wasn’t listed in SiCo’s chart.

    So, does that mean you can put a Romeo Zero or Shield RMSc on an X-Compact?

    No idea. That’s the only pistol I own that takes an optic, and the RMS is the only optic like that I’ve ever had.

    If you’re near Charlotte, and have an X-Compact, you’re welcome to test fit it.

    I did some googling and found this thing. So it looks like the answer is probably yes.

    Evolution Gun Works DeltaPoint Pro Novak Sight Mount (fits Shield RMS/RMSc/SMS, JPoint, Redfield Accelerator, and Optima) Includes Mounting Hardware https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07SHW25JK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_CXu0EbC8S3ST7

    Edit: I would add, just because the bolt pattern matches doesn't mean slide cuts will match. Something we still need to confirm.
