Almost since the moment of their founding in 1981, Trijicon has been paving the way for quality any-light aiming systems. Their riflescopes and sights tend to perform well and offer good longevity, and along with their sales on the civilian market they sell to the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, and a number of SOF. In 1996 they came out with their first 1×42 Trijicon Reflex sight, and it was immediately put into use by SF as part of their SOPMOD M4 Carbine Kit.
The Trijicon Reflex has since become well-known for its durability thanks to its aluminum-alloy housing and delivers battery-free illumination and true-color multi-coated lenses. It’s specifically designed for close-quarter use and promises fast target acquisition with phenomenal accuracy. Part of that accuracy is due to the fact that it’s meant to be used with both eyes opens. Whether you have a rifle, carbine, or shotgun, the Trijicon Reflex has long since been a superior sight. So what’s new?
Brand new in 2014, Trijicon is now offering their Reflex sight with a green-dot reticle option, something a lot of shooters have been eagerly awaiting. According to Trijicon their new green-dot reticle delivers a “highly visible reference for close-in shooting” along with precise aiming. The Reflex also doesn’t obscure your target at longer ranges.
The Reflex really is a tough sight; it’s been tested according to the rather brutal standards of the military. Not only can it handle rigorous use and abuse, but it’s capable of withstanding extreme temperatures. Trijicon sights come with limited-lifetime warranties.
This new Trijicon Reflex green-dot reticle is being made available in 4.5 MOA and 6.5 MOA dot sizes.
Personally, I’m a fan of green-dot reticles and Trijicon, both, so this one will definitely make my wish list.
