The Trijicon RMR, the optic which started the pistol red dot craze, is now available in the updated and more ruggedly built Type 2 version for sale at Omaha Outdoors. Have you wondered why seemingly everyone is putting miniature red dot sights on their pistol slides? It's not just to look cooler than everyone else on Instagram. Pistol red dots take some getting used to, but once you're up to speed, you'll be able to shoot faster and more precisely than ever before – even at extreme distances.
An RMR Finally Designed for Pistols
Believe it or not, the RMR was never intended to be mounted to a pistol. It was originally intended as a piggyback optic for the ACOG or even larger magnified optics, for situations where a sudden close up shot needed to be taken and the magnification of the main optic was too great to allow a clear shot. The original RMR worked pretty well when shoved into its new role as a pistol optic, but the RMR Type 2 represents Trijicon's best efforts to make the RMR (Ruggedized Miniature Reflex) able to withstand the punishing recoil and added stresses of being mounted directly to a rapidly moving – and rapidly stopping - part. Probably the most innovative feature of the RMR Type 2 is its auto-adjust brightness feature.
The RMR Type 2 is available in standard LED RMR, dual-illuminated tritium and fiber optic (meaning no batteries to replace), and adjustable LED versions powered by a single CR2032 battery such as the RM06 and RM07, featuring red dot reticle sizes of 3.25 and 6.5 MOA, respectively, but also the 1.0 MOA RM09. Dual-illuminated versions feature 7, 9, and 13 MOA dots in amber and green (9 MOA only) alongside 12.9 MOA amber and green triangles. Clearly, no matter what size or color reticle you want, or how you want it powered, Trijicon has a pistol-ready optic for you.
