Default Trijicon RM08

Just mounted a Trijicon RM08 on my FN Five Seven. I went with this option for the fiber optics and tritium. No batteries ever. The only drawback is if your indoors and aquire a target outdoors the reticle is not visible. It's great outdoors, indoors, and in the dark. If your looking to go with this setup, keep this in mind.

Better light. Sunlight is great.

Decided to get an RM06 instead. Adjustable or auto led. Unfortunately I have to use a battery now, but it's good for 4 years.

Have you thought about milling the slide?

Na. The mount replaces the adjustable rear sight so it can be removed at any time. I would have to dedicate the package together if I milled it. It would make for a clean set up though.

Gotcha


Edit: I confused weapon platforms. Disregard below.
