Viridian Weapon Technologies has just released the RFX45, a closed emitter green dot sight compatible with both pistols and rifles.
Teased earlier this year at SHOT Show 2023, Viridian Weapon Technologies’ new RFX45 closed emitter green dot sight is now available. Good timing considering that both closed emitter pistol optics and green dot sights seem to only be getting more popular.
The RFX45 features all the durability and reliability benefits that the market has come to expect of closed emitter designs, and its robustness is reinforced by a machined 6061 aluminum housing, fully multi-coated lenses, and an IPX6 environmental rating. Other notable features include its INSTANT-ON activation, auto shut-off, and advertised 50,000-hour battery life (powered by one CR2032). The RFX45 also has a generous 24mm lens, a 5-MOA green dot reticle, and 10 manually adjustable illumination settings (eight visible, two for night vision).
Viridian Vice President of Sales, Andy Scott, said this about the new optic:
" Eyes see green better, and the RFX45 is a workhorse that comes standard with a lot of technology designed to benefit the shooter…The RFX line as a whole has been well received by our customers and consumers because of the features of each optic coupled with green dot technology. As with all Viridian products, we started with the design and put features and specs into these offerings to make them stand out in the market. "
Also, the ACRO isn’t the only mounting pattern available for the RFX45, it’s just the one it comes with. Viridian also sells adaptor plates for Glock MOS, RMR and Docter mounts, as well as two heights of Picatinny rail mounts for carbines. The RFX45 is available now and has an MSRP of $459.
