    Im about to pull the trigger on a Trijicon Accupoint tr24 1in amber. I have used one with a red reticle and was very impressed with it. Haven't used the amber. Amber is $600 and red or green is $750+. Does anyone have any experience with amber? Should I hold out for red or green? Is it worth the 150+ increase? Thanks in advance for any help.

    I have a problem seeing the amber. I prefer the red. Having said that, I would wait.

    amber is horrible at dawn/dusk and when looking at a desert color when holding your gun steady (quick targeting is decent). then again red is iffy when looking down a bright desert. however it's still hella bright and easy to notice when you draw up quick since you're looking at the target and you see this amber crosshair coming out of nowhere, it's easy to line up...red and green (especially green) are just a bit easier

    1) its easier for your eyes to distinguish contrast with green, hence, why night vision goggles are green
    2) your eye responds to green with less effort or fatigue, which makes it easier to focus
