Could be brighter...

by Matell, from United States, WA Written on February 5, 2015
So if you're after a holodot sight that is usable in all illumination conditions, then this isn't the sight for you.

When in good strong ambient light the triangle is quite clear, distinct and easy to pick up against most any background I've looked at through it.

In all around ambient dark conditions the tritium provides adequate illumination. It's not as quick to the eye as when the fiber optics are gathering light however.

Mixed lighting conditions is where it struggles, and can be hard to pick out the reticle. For example if you're in a low to no light room, and are looking outside against a light background the reticle can be almost impossible to find. There's not enough ambient light inside for the fiber optics to harness, and the tritium isn't strong enough to provide sufficient glow.

I will continue to play with it and update my review as necessary. My main reason for buying was not to use as a home defense gun, but to as closely replicate a TA01ADF as possible.

Here's an idea Trijicon.....tri-illumination....add an LED illumination into the mix, and use a small light sensor (facing down range) to drive the output of an LED. Effectively then in no light it switches the LED off and tritium is the only light source, bright light were fiber optics provide the dominant light agin switch the LED into low output, and anywhere in between where the LED provides supplemental illumination....
Pros:
  • No battery to replace
  • Big clear and accurate triangle reticle
Cons:
  • Tritium will need recharging eventually
  • Reticle very indiscernible in mixed light
  • Probably not suitable for home defense
Best Used for:
  • Outdoor use
Would recommend: Yes

Great Reflex

by E-Money, from United States, IL Written on January 27, 2015
As with all Trijicon this reflex is rock solid. Normally I would not be able to purchase a high quality site like this, but DVOR had such a rockin deal I just had to make the leap. Love the fact I have no battery to be concerned about. Only downside is that the tritium seems to be really dim and barely there in a dark room. Not sure I would be counting on it in that situation. Other than that, it's worth every penny....
Pros:
  • None
Cons:
  • Tritium barely lights, need light to work
Best Used for:
  • daylight
Would recommend: Yes

Little Red Dot

by TYee, from United States, MA Written on January 4, 2015
A good back up sight. I have it currently mounted on a 4x32 ACOG. I like tr dual illumination option, using both Trinium and fiver optic to power it, the small size and the ability to mount it to just about any platform, with different mounts. The down sides that I have found is that the Amber color is not as noticeable and that the brightness is not adjustable, it's dependent on the ambient light and the Trinium. If you have those concerns a different RMR with battery might by better....
Pros:
  • Nothing electronic to malfunction and no batteries to worry about.
  • Size, Weight, Fit-n-Finish
Cons:
  • adjustments could be finer
Best Used for:
  • Backup

Brightness Letdown

by Chris, from United States, OH Written on December 26, 2014
The construction of Trijicon products is second to none. I have a tridium / fiber optic ACOG and thought the brightness would have been similar. The RMR is so dim indoors that the retical is not visible. I had to take a 300 lumen Streamlight to the fiber to get the retical to appear. I would suggest buying the battery powered version. I am thankful for Optics Planets return policy. I returned it with no questions asked. Thank you OP. Customer for life....
Pros:
  • Size
  • Design
  • Construction
Cons:
  • Brightness
Best Used for:
  • Pistol or rifle backup.

Great sight

by Ron, from United States, WA Written on December 15, 2014
I love it. Have this on my MINI 14 tactical, ultimak rail. It is very lite weight extremely durable. No batteries always on huge plus. There is some wash out, but a person can compensate for it and is no more of an issue then adjusting the nob on an aimpoint or turning your red dot on for that mater. I own an Aimpoint 9000sc, because of my astigmatism it is like looking though a red spider web. I do not get any of that distortion with this amber triangle. It losses one star because of the washout effect, but I can live with it....

Like my other dual illuminated and LEDs RMRs better

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 21, 2014
I have 6 other Trijicon RMRs. Two battery LED models and now 4 dual illuminated versions. I wanted to try the 12 MOA triangle reticle on the Trijicon to compare with the Leupold Delta points. While I liked this Trijicon overall I was really disappointed with its performance in low light as compared to my other dual illuminated RMRs. Great for bright light not so great for low light.
Pros: all the good about the battery free models
Cons: poor low ligh performance...

Excellent, with one small issue

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NV Written on October 6, 2013
I've been pondering an RMR for some time now. I own several Aimpoint red dots (3 Pros and one ML3), two Eotechs (512 and XPS2-2), and a couple of Burris FFIIs. The RMR has been temping me for some time and I finally pulled the trigger. With discount the price was excellent, light, small, rugged, and NO BATTERIES (though on the aimpoints that is almost a non-issue). Stays zero'd and setup was easy using the tip of the triangle for the aiming point. Slightly more difficult to acquire sight picture due to small size of 'aperture' compared to an aimpoint or eotech, but the size and weight difference balance the equation.

The only negative is that the amber triangle does not 'pop' very well in certain lighting conditions. Sighting out of shade into a bright area, or indoor lighting conditions and it gets washed out a bit (badly in the shade-to-bright condition). Having to 'look' for the dot does not instill confidence. With an aimpoint, for example, the dot is there every time, never washed out. It just 'is'. I think a different color triangle might make the difference on this. Red or green.

That said, I decided to use this as the offset sight as short-range alternative on a optics-mounted carbine. It works well in that role and I am getting comfortable with it as the few events I've run with it. I am very seriously considering getting another one for mounting on a pistol for events. I use a Burris FFII in that role currently and I think the RMR would be even better at it, ...

not for tactical use

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 15, 2012
The sight is a good sight but will washout. If shooting at night or from a dark room into a bright room. It is impossible to shoot from inside a house to outside. The tritium is not bright enough at night especially with a weapon mounted light.
Pros: no battery
Cons: washout...

Trijicon RMR Orabge Triangle Dual Illuminated

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 3, 2012
I prefer the triangle to all othes. It's very easy to see and point during the day. Bright enough to stand out on almost any back ground. However the tritium illuminator isn't very bright so the aim point is very hard to see until you eyes adjust to the dark. Then because of the size you can pick it up fairly well. Overall excellent quality and ver rugged.
Pros: The triangle aim point is very quick to pick up.
Cons: The night illumination is low and requires you to wait for your eyes to adjust to night vision....
