Features of Trijicon RMRcc
1. Compact Design
The Trijicon RMRcc is a compact reflex sight that manages to pack all the toughness and reliability of the original RMR into a smaller footprint. Its size makes it ideally suited for concealed carry pistols, fitting perfectly within the slide width of standard models and eliminating the visible overhang common with other optics.
Despite its compact size, it doesn’t compromise on its rugged design or functionality.
Despite the initial noticeable size difference, by the end of the first magazine, it was no longer an issue. The smaller optic didn’t impede my speed or accuracy, making it a smooth transition.
2. Battery Life
The RMRcc operates on a common CR2032 battery, boasting a 4-year battery life. A Battery Conservation Mode adjusts the aiming dot to ambient lighting conditions after 16.5 hours without a button push, further extending battery life.
While I couldn’t test the 4-year battery life claim within my review period, I did leave the sight on for days at a time. The sight performed consistently with no noticeable drop in power, and the Battery Conservation Mode functioned as promised.
One of the main selling points of the Trijicon RMRcc is its robustness and durability. Its unique patented housing shape diverts the force of an impact away from the lens, greatly increasing durability. It is built to withstand rugged use and harsh conditions, making it an ideal option for duty, competition, or everyday carry.
During testing, I aggressively racked the RMRcc against a wooden post repeatedly and then immediately fired rounds, and it sustained no damage nor shifts in zero. I would comfortably trust this optic with my life.
4. User-Controlled Illumination Settings
The RMRcc comes with complete user-control illumination settings. There are 8 brightness settings, including one super bright mode and two night vision modes, allowing for clear and easy target acquisition in a variety of lighting conditions.
During my shooting experience, I experimented with the different brightness settings. The super bright mode proved beneficial in bright sunlight, while the night vision modes were helpful in low-light conditions. The various settings enabled me to adapt quickly to changing light conditions without impacting my shooting performance.
5. Windage and Elevation Adjustments
The windage and elevation controls are located in the same positions as on the RMR, but instead of clicks, there are ticks marked on the body to measure movement. Each tick adjusts the dot by a distance of three MOA, allowing for precise adjustments to ensure accuracy.
I made adjustments during my shooting experience, and while there was initially some concern over the lack of tactile feedback, the visible markings proved to be just as effective. I was able to accurately adjust my aim with ease, and my zero remained consistent over the rounds fired.
6. Clear MOA Dot
The RMRcc provides a crisp 3.25 & 6.5 MOA dot, ensuring fast and accurate targeting. The illuminated aiming point keeps the shooter’s focus on the target, making both eyes open shooting a possibility.
The clear MOA dot made targeting effortless. My focus stayed on the target, and I was able to get accurate hits quickly and effectively, even at longer ranges.
Footprint and Mounting of Trijicon RMRcc
The Trijicon RMRcc, has been designed for mounting on concealed carry handguns. In terms of the footprint, the length of the RMRcc is identical to the original RMR but its width is reduced by 0.2 inches and its height is 0.1 inches shorter.
Mounting options will be available for most popular full-size and compact pistols, and dovetail adapters will also be provided for shooters without an optics-ready gun.
