    Request for Trijicon Sight Recommendation

    Picked-up my new 45 Tactical FDE today and want to purchase the proper Trijicon sight for it. So, would you guys please recommend the Trijicon you prefer?

    Thanks,

    Ken

    Congrats! on your new FDE FNX-45 Tactical!

    Either one is a good choice RM06 3.25 MOA Dot or RM07 6.5 MOA Dot

    Thanks for the response. I looked at the Vortex Viper which is nice but you have to remove it from the pistol to change a battery - seems to be a show stopper but price is attractive. What type of battery life are Votex Viper users realizing/

    Same with the Trijicon! You have to remove it to install a new battery

    Trijicon says 2 year battery life, I know it's more than a year but I don't think it has been quite 2. Dot size is a preference, I like the small dot. Didn't think I needed the adjustable so I just got the simple RM01. I have been happy with it, other than it gets really dirty when shooting suppressed.

    When I purchased mine I went in with the intention of purchasing the RM07 but after speaking with someone there that has extensive use of them I ended up getting the RM06. Now I can't compare it to the RM07 because I don't own one but I will say that I'm glad I ended up with the RM06. I still get quick acquisition and the dot does not take up a lot of the sight picture at all. I also am someone of a control freak so that is why I went with the adjustable but the unit does a pretty good job at adjusting on it's own and I haven't ran into a situation where I have needed to adjust it myself. Now as Smurky stated, it is a personal preference but I'm certainly happy with the RM06.

    Rm05
    yes out at 50 yards the dot gets pretty big and I wish they made a 3moa in the dual illumination for that reason but mine is 10 years old and still glows like it's new. No batteries and I cover most of the fiber optic with tape so it's not too bright. Just put it on,sight it in and forget it.

    I picked mine up in Nov and added a RM07 on it. Youtube the difference between the different models (adjustable/LED/ etc) and see what peoples gripes are before you purchase.
