The Trijicon RMR (Ruggedized Miniature Reflex) sight is the most rugged miniature red-dot sight available. It is made from 7075-T6 aluminum to MIL-spec standards and has a patented shape that absorbs impacts and diverts stresses away from the lens, increasing durability. Available in LED, adjustable LED, or dual-illuminated versions, and with dot sizes ranging from 3.25 MOA to 13 MOA, you are sure to find what fits your needs. The RMR is a versatile sight that illuminates in any lighting condition.
I used the RMR with the Rogers Red Dot Glock Slide. I have been using it for six months and have not been disappointed. It has been on constantly and has worked as advertised. It is fast and accurate.
Red-dot sights like the Trijicon RMR allow you to focus on the target and see the sights in the same focal plane. The result is fast and intuitive. You can shoot with both eyes open, focused on the target, and track the dot through recoil, and from one target to the next. Older shooters will find the dot much easier to use than iron sights because the eyes can adjust to target focus. Closing one eye is okay for stationary target shooters, but if you are moving or scanning for threats, you are going to need both eyes for depth perception and field of view. The RMR will let you keep those eyes open.
The Trijicon RMR is available in three models with different reticle patterns. The first RMR model is the LED version. This is available with a 3.25 MOA red-dot (RM01) or an 8.0 MOA red-dot (RM02). The second RMR model is the dual-illuminated version. There are currently four reticles available for this model: a 13.0 MOA amber dot (RM03), a 7.0 MOA amber dot (RM04), a 9.0 MOA amber dot (RM05), and a 12.9 MOA amber triangle (RM08). The last model available is the adjustable LED version. This comes in a 3.25 MOA red dot (RM06) and a 6.5 MOA red dot (RM07).
The RM03, RM04, RM05 and RM08 are battery-free. The illumination sources for the reticles inside the dual-illuminated RMR are tritium and fiber optics.
The adjustable LED RM06 and RM07 battery should last four years of continual use at brightness setting #4. When left on at the brightest setting (brightness setting #8), the battery should last around 25 days.
The LED RM01 and RM02 models are rated at two years typical use.
Unlike other designs, the low profile of the sights makes them useful for concealed carry, too.
