My Dual-Illuminated Trijicon RMR arrived today. I opted for the 9 MOA dot (RM05), as I felt that was a good trade-off between putting buckshot on target at close range, and slugs on target at farther ranges. Upon receiving my RMR from Cal's Sporting Armory, I called Trijicon to check date of manufacture.......June 2012 production date. I like that Cal's keeps fresh stock on hand. I also ordered an American Defense Manufacturing QD mount for the RMR. I must say I am very impressed with the fit and finish of the ADM mount. I do like the QD System, and the tool-less adjustments. The overall size of the mount and the RMR is a little bigger than a Gold Dollar. Small, and light. I paid $369 for the RMR, and $55 for the ADM low QD Mount. The RMR comes in a small Pelican case, and comes with the optic, two screws with loctite already on them, a manual, product guide, warranty card, and allen wrench for the mounting screws. I will say that in complete darkness, the amber dot doesn't glow as bright as green or red.....however, it is crystal clear. Outside, in the 1 PM sun, the dot glowed a nuclear-bright amber color.......almost orange. VERY easy to pick up on. I am overall very impressed with the dual-illuminated RMR. I have 3 of the LED powered RMRs, and they're all mounted on my ACOGs.....however, I can definitely see the Dual-Illuminated version being choice for an application where you want to make damn sure its gonna work every time, such as if it were a primary optic on a handgun or in my case, a shotgun. I still need to do a range report on my new Trijicon SRS.......the stuff on the "To-Do" list keeps piling up on me. Mounted on my Benelli M4- I decided to mount the RMR all the way forward, as didn't want crap from the ejection port flying up onto the lens of the optic. I've even had a massive face-engulfing fireball come from that ejection port. I can pick the dot up very fast, however, I found I can pick it up a little faster when the RMR is mounted all the way up against the rear sight, however its not a deal breaker having it all the way forward. FUN FACT: Did you know the Benelli M4 Ghost Ring sight dots actually GLOW IN THE DARK?!?! Never knew that til I took my shotgun into the bathroom to check of the RMR, and behold, 3 little green dots and a big orange dot. I guess the paint is the "Superluminova" stuff that Beretta uses on the 90Two and PX4 Storm pistols. Close up of the RMR on the ADM mount- Best shot I could get of the 9 MOA dot with my crappy camera. Room is dark, with only light from the window. Still illuminates really nicely. I really do see optics such as the Trijicon RMR, the wave of the future. Especially on applications such as handguns (think FNP-45 Tactical), and on shotguns. You get one of the most rugged optics for its size, and battery-free operation. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
