Default Trijicon RMR 3.25 MOA for MPX 9mm?

Hey guys- what are your thoughts on putting an RMR 3.25 MOA on a 9mm subgun? I would go MRO 2 MOA but already have an extra RMR and would prefer not to buy a new optic. Shooting is typically 50 yds and under with this pistol, so the RMR would cover only 1.625 at this range. Any reasons against this setup? Thanks!

Edit to add- I would mount RMR at absolute cowitness height

2 MOA vs 3? Why worry about it? I have a 3 MOA on my 9mm carbine... it is brand new (not many rounds through it) but it works perfectly.

I have three of those RMR 3.25 (06) and two Fast Fire III 3 MOA... I think they are interchangeable except the RMR has to come off the gun to change batteries and the body seems tougher. FFIII's work fine. I have shot them many time together the same day, but never really switched back and forth to obsess over differences.

MRO and AIMPOINT PRO are 2 MOA... I couldn't care less about 1 MOA... none are magnified and all have great brightness where they can bloom up.

I'd be more concerned about weight and size of the RDS body. IMHO.

For a shotgun I'd like to try a 6 MOA... currently have a 3 MOA on a shotgun.

Really the best way to find out is to mount it up and give it a try. You already own the optic.
If you want change you have to put in your 2 cents, you can't just sit on the sidelines and whine.
