New Trijicon Reflex with Green-Dot Reticle


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.

    I’m kinda shocked they haven’t retired those old reflex sights. I used one back in 2007 and it was old and mediocre then.

    Even if you could get past the giant dot (grape bunch) that was either too bright or invisible depending on ambient light, then colored lens tint killed it for me.

    But green… woo?

  • gggplaya

    blue window tint kills it for me. With advancements in power management circuitry, these red dots are obsolete. The aimpoint As lasts several years. The mepro try dot lasts almost 2 years without the auto on/off feature. Just replace the battery once a year and never worry about it.

      I have both this and several Aimpoints. The large 42mm objective is really nice. I never have to adjust the brightness, it’s a 100% dependable and holds zero. It’s a very nice product as are almost all Trijicons products. Glad they are still making it.

      Aimpoint has made plenty of dud products. The old ones weren’t reliable. The 2x 9000 is like looking through a long plumbing pipe and the 3x magnifier is a joke in terms of quality at $100 and murder at $700.

  • Anonymoose

    I’m more interested in the SRS.

    • Katie A

      Personally I favor their ACOGs, although the SRS has its pros. My problem with the SRS was glare but I admit, still a nice sight.

  • Wonder how long until we see these on Alibaba.

  • mig1nc

    People often times complain about washout with these. I wish I could borrow one to test out for myself.

    Simple doesn’t always mean cheaper.
