"For those not familiar with the Trijicon RMR, it's a small "red dot" optic for your handgun, and/or other applications that require compactness and lightweight solutions. The dual illuminated model does not require batteries to operate since it relies upon Trijicon's fiber optic lighting source for daytime and a tritium source for night time; a feature I find absolutely necessary in regards to optics on defensive handguns. It's available in a 4 MOA to 8 MOA dot, the latter being superior for handguns. The model I tested was a 8 MOA dot, which I found to be fast in acquisition and sufficient for repeatable and accurate shot placement."

IMO, this is a great concept.
I think you may find a majority of members here afraid of change, though ;)

The one in the pic is the battery operated one, not the dual illuminated model.

I guess it implies that it's the dual illuminated model, but I was more or less talking about it's availability compared to the LED models.

Where did you get the mount for it?
I've the tritium/fiber RMR on my FNP-45 Tactical and it rocks. Like it enough I want to get one for my favorite 1911 but have had no luck finding a mount for it that works like the Optima/J-Point or Burris Fastfire replacing the rear sight. A Novak cut in my case.
