    Does anyone have experience to with the TRS-125 to share?

    Some of the differences over the TRS-25 are some push button controls, selectable auto-off after 12hrs, more MOA adjustment, sleeker profile, longer battery life,

    The TRS-125 is about an ounce or so heavier and about 1/2" longet

    But did durability suffer? Experience or input anyone?

    Pricing seems to be better directly from Bushnell than anywhere online I found.

    I've never seen or heard of a TRS125. I shop a local Bushnell outlet regularly and they display the TRS-25 as well as the newer TRS-26, but they've not had a TRS-125. So, sorry, I can't help except to say I have several TRS-25's and like them. But I remember to shut them off :) Recently, however, I purchased one of the Sig Romeo 5's on sale for $100. For the $20 difference, I'd go for the Sig....that shake awake function could come in handy.

    I hadn't heard of the 125 but it looks like they changed out a few of the things I don't like about the TRS-25. Namely the battery door being its own space, push button controls (the knob is a little stiff to turn), auto-shutoff, and just a tiny bit bigger (22mm vs 20). I thought about getting a few more TRS25s to go on what I need red dots, but I like these better.

    I've got two TRS-25s, one old with blue tint glass and a stiff knob and one much newer with clear glass and an easier to turn knob.

    After weighing the options at Bushnell, I ordered another TRS-25 for a rimfire rifle as it's just a tad smaller, a tad lighter, and it doesn't have push buttons that might get pressed when I don't want it to be pressed.

    Amazingly, the deal at Bushnell has free ground shipping and another discount in the shopping cart to offset local sales tax.

    I have a couple. One on a 12 gauge. Still works great after quite a bit of abuse.

    The knob is my favorite feature.

    That's what I like about these little cheap TRS-25s. They're tougher than they ought to be.

    I have two TRS-25’s, they’ve both been A-1 for me :thumbup:. No experience with the 125 model.

    Stay safe..
