Default Mulling over a Trijicon RMR, anyone here use one?

This would be for a Colt Gold Cup. As I understand it, the RMR can be mounted WITHOUT making new holes in the pistol. That aspect is super-important to me. I'm worthless with bladed/open sights, at least with anything approaching quickness. Given time I can line stuff up but it's not fun. I've used red-dot type sights on a Ruger MKII slab-side and enjoyed it(Aimpoint 3000). A holo type sight on my National Match would make it way more fun to shoot I think(hope).

So if anyone has experience with the RMR lemme know, or experience with another holo sight that requires no modification to the pistol please say something.

The RMR is a great sight and tough as nails. I also found the Burris Fastfire III to be a wonderful pistol sight that replaces the rear iron sight. Both can be used to rack the slide, with either a hand or a solid object such as a table or door frame. The RMR is a bit clearer and brighter in my experience, but not by much. That might differ from person to person.

I want one of these for my GSG 22lr 1911:

Think I will ask my wife to get me one for my birthday.

But I have no actual experience, yet.

TekGreg-

Can the FastFire be had with a grip activation? Can you easily power it on with one hand? I use a shoulder holster(weak side) so flipping it on with my thumb an option?
I'm debating on making the 1911 my CC piece, so easy sight activation is sort of needed. I use a HK compact right now and I have muscle memory tied in on it, it's just no fun to practice with. I do, to keep me fresh but I sure do enjoy the 1911 a lot more.
