Viridian Weapon Technologies is expanding its custom-designed accessory lines with the introduction of two new green-dot sights tailored specifically for Taurus firearms. The RFX11 and RFX35 Custom for Taurus sights are engineered to deliver performance and reliability, along faster target acquisition time, creating green dot sights that are an excellent companion to your Taurus pistol.

"The launch of two new RFX green dot reflex sights in partnership with Taurus demonstrates our joint commitment to providing shooters with expanded custom options. We're thrilled to offer enhanced precision and reliability through this collaboration. Together, Viridian and Taurus are dedicated to delivering innovative solutions that meet the evolving needs of shooters," said Andy Scott, Viridian Vice President of Sales.

The Viridian RFX sight lineup is made up of lightweight, green-dot reflex sights designed to accommodate various mounting footprints, withstand harsh conditions and deliver over 30,000 hours of battery life. These sights offer user-controlled activation or Viridian’s Instant-On technology that is powered by CR2032 batteries. They are easy to mount using the tools included in the package and feature an auto-off function that activates after two minutes to save on battery life. These Taurus-specific sights have a footprint unique to Taurus firearms, however, the overall size and shape of the sights are similar to other dot sights which use the RMSc footprint for the RFX 11 or the RMR footprint for the RFX 35.
