The below are the only two that I am aware of;I have a Trijicon RMR 08 on order for my ACR. Does anyone know what size mount I should purchase in order to obtain a co-witness when using the MBUS sights?
Check out the Insight MRDS instead. It's got a cleaner 3.5 MOA dot, is properly "weaponized", and sports an Eotech-like protective hood so your optic doesn't get mashed up.cjt50 and DSM: Thanks for the feedback I will take a look at both and let you know how it works out. The sight has been on back order since Feb with no indication of when it will come in.
Have you ever had a chance to compare the RMR to the older Trij Reflex? (smaller 24mm one) I have one of the older reflexes with the triangle and I love the reticle and it's very accurate in the correct lighting conditions. However it will washout during low light conditions more times then not.I have the dual illuminated RMR so it doesn't use batteries which I like very much. It's built just like an ACOG so as far as durability it's on point as far as I'm concerned. The amount of abuse it could take I would think is limited to what the mounting screws can endure. I've never had much exposure to the Insight models except through an unfavorable review on the XCR forum. I'm sure either model would probably work though.
What you might consider is rolling with a Burris FastFire to see how you like the small red dots. They're decent optics for the price. And then if you feel you want to try an RMR or whichever you'll have a spare sight as a back up.
The 12.9 triangle is a great reticle. Using the point really extends the range of it. I have it in an old reflex site. Look forward to your observations when you get it.I have no experience with either the T1 or H1 (not that I have experience with the RMR). I do have an Accupoint and love it, and am willing to gamble on the RMR.
I ordered the RM08 which is a 12.9 MOA dual illuminated triangle, with the tip of the triangle providing precision recital location. I guess I wont know until I get it, if it
was a bad choice or better suited as a BU sight to a scope. I will keep you all informed though.
Ahhhhh, the actual comparison. Glad to hear it. I really like the reflex site, but the wash out problem is a real concern, 'specially at nite. Might just have to try one of the RMR dual illum's.I was shooting my dual-illuminated RMR on my FNP yesterday and didn't have any trouble with the reticle, even under the shade of the range canopy. I had an older Reflex that was horrible for that and have since sold but the RMR, in any model, is not a bad sight at all. I think it'll be fine for what you want.
