Does anyone have experience with the Trijicon RMR Type 2, 1 MOA red-dot?

I put my Vortex Venom 3MOA on my 460 and like it but, I'm thinking a smaller dot would be ideal for this handgun. I'd really like to be confident out to 200 yards with this handgun, but a 6" dot just isn't going to do much for precision. Having the 1 MOA, or 2" dot at 200 seems enticing. I've never owned a Trijicon product before though. Anyone?

NO I do not have experience with the red dots. I used the Eotech for a long time. I do have experience with Trijicon's Acog and they are great and their customer service was excellent when one of the Acogs we have needed attention.

But I agree with you on wanting a small dot,, and stretching the legs on that pistol.

No experience with the Trijicon but here's some related thoughts.

I have the venom on a GP which seems like a good fit range wise. I put a SigSauer Romeo on a 45-70 encore for a brush gun (it will match the 460, but I load them a bit lighter). While it is quick to acquire the dot (using the circle-dot setup), I am less then pleased with the low light performance. I find it difficult to differentiate between the deer and the background at range or at lower light levels (in the woods or dawn and dusk). I'm starting to wonder if a fixed 2x would be a better idea for me.

With the 45-70, i can stack shots at 100 yards on the center bullseye on the paper, but not the peripheral ones as I can't see them. I've never played at 200 yards with that gun at the range. Unless I was hunting deer in a snow covered field, I don't know If I could reliably pick out the deer at that range.

Also fyi, I wear glasses with a strong correction.

Trijicon is undoubtedly the toughest MRDS out there, but the field of view is pretty small.
Anything I plan on shooting over 50 yards has to have a scope for me and I have a 2x8 Leupold on mine.

I think BKS is right, the small field of view, tinted glass, and distorted edges of the lens made me take an RMR off a hunting pistol mid-season. It worked great on the range, but I couldn't see a deer in dark woods. I don't know if all models of the RMR are like this, but mine is.
