    Opinions/Experiences on a Burris FF3 vs Vortex Venom red dot on an FNX 45 Tactical

    Want to put a red dot on my new FNX 45 Tac. Debating between a Burris FF3 vs Vortex Venon. I read quite a few people have put the Burris on the FNX but only a few are using the Vortex. I can get a pretty good deal on the Vortex (about $55 cheaper than the Burris). For what I understand both mount to the FNX with the supplied hardware without any modifications or additional purchase. What do you guys think?

    Thanks

    I have the Burris FF III on my FNX. If I could have gotten the Vortex for less, I would have went with the Vortex.

    The Burris is fine and has held true this entire time. Can't give you an evaluation of the Vortex but I can say the Vortex no BS warranty is exactly as stated. I have two of the long range 6-24X50 Viper FFP MRAD scopes on my long range guns, the A5M XP and the Remington 700 that I modded with a new stock and other stuff. Both are exceptional.

    Google is your friend (not likely) but it is a source of information...

    I agree with you! I have two Vortex optics. A Viper 6x24 on my Ruger Precision Rifle and a Strike Eagle 1x6 on my AR. Both are great.

    I installed the Vortex Venom on my 45T and have no complaints. Makes a great shooting gun even better.

    I have a FF3 on one Tactical and a Vortex Venom on the other. I like them both. They seem to be similar in operation. Cosmetically they are a little different. If I had to choose, I would most likely pick the Venom, only for the looks and the model name.

    Do you have this on an FNX45T? If you do, do you have to keep taking the sight off, lock/unlock the adjustment screws, put it back on, check it, put it back on, repeat??

    Is there a reason for just those two? How about the Trijicon?

    The reason was the $$. I could not afford it. I ended up buying and mounting a Burris FF3 8 MOA. Easy installation was very easy, works great! I need to get used to it instead of the iron sites. Now I am just wating for the TRL 1 HL promotional give away by FN and my gun will be complete (home defense). Love this gun!20161229_174127.jpg
