Seems like the type 2 have better battery contacts to take the battering semiautomatic pistols dish out. The type 1 is more suited for long gun mounting.

Cabelas is at $348 but I'd have to pay tax. This is where I first noticed it. Then I saw Optics Planet at $385 with no tax and free shipping, so it would end up about the same. A local guy has 2 NIB at $350 each.
I haven't really dug into this, but it seems that the Type 1 units are being moved out of the way.
I’ve got several Type 1 RMRs that work fine. I had an issue with flickering on one of them. It’s mounted on a .300 Blk pistol AR. I bought a $10 flicker plate by Battle Werx from weaponoutfitters.com that solved my problem. Now I use the flicker plate on all of them.

I almost picked one up from Cabela's too, for mounting on my 5" M&P 2.0. But everyone tells me the Vortex are as reliable as a hammer. Plus they are cheaper, and have a better warranty. Wanted a Trijicon, but the math just did not add up on it.
Originally posted by dcpd: I've noticed the dual illuminated has stayed the same since July when the type 2 was released. I wonder if this means that having a battery has been the root of most problems for Trijcon RMRs?
The problem is that the dual illuminated don't get much love from the non-competition side. Issues with brightness, particularly when transitioning between light and dark environments. No different than the Trijicon Reflex not really gaining a following.
There are a lot more positives than negatives with battery power.
