Trijicon RMR HD & RCR Red-Dot Sights: First Look

New from Trijicon, the RMR HD is a new generation of duty-rated red dot. For the closed emitter crowd, the RCR offers full environmental protection without sacrificing performance.

Michigan-based electro-optics maker Trijicon has unveiled the RMR HD red-dot optic. A next-gen offering for traditional RMR customers – military, law enforcement, prepared citizens – it may be more useful to think of the RMR HD as a ruggedized SRO, Trijicon’s competition-oriented pistol sight. Like the SRO, the RMR HD is characterized by its large lens, forward-extended housing and top-loading CR2032 battery compartment. It also offers new electronics including a front-facing light sensor for automatic illumination adjustment, large side buttons, and the ability to switch between a dot reticle or a segmented-circle-and-dot array. Also launched was the enclosed-emitter Ruggedized Closed Reflex, or RCR, red dot, still adhering to the RMR footprint and distinct from competitors for its use of capstan-style screws.

Guns & Ammo was onsite for the launch and continues to test these exciting new optics. Watch the video for the full list of features and our crew’s first impressions.
