Red dot for Tactical- Trijicon RMR or Dr. Optic

Post by dbaer » 06 Jul 2011, 21:23

I'm trying to decide which red dot to put on my Tactical. I am currently looking at the Trijicon RMR or the Dr. Optic sight. I originally had planned on the RMR but found the Dr. Optic to be almost half the price of the RMR. I believe Dr. Optic makes good quality stuff, but thought I'd ask for opinions and see if any of you run the Dr. Optic red dot on your Tactical and if you like it. Would like to look at a few before I drop the dough on one. Thanks

Dr. Optics do eventually have to be replaced as they wear out after thousands of rounds. They are good sights. Trijicon is overpriced IMO.

With everything I've read about the mini red dots, you really want to look into the leupold

I have a RMR on my .45tac and truly enjoy its performance.

I think I will probably go with the Trijicon RMR. More money but I believe its a better product and in the long run I think I will be happier with it. Just hope it doesn't take me too long to get the money together for the one I want.

Excuse my ignorance as I have never purchased a sight before therefor dont know much about them but wouldn't the leup with cross mount (made for pic rails) work on the EA mini slide mount?

Yes, but you can get a flat base mount that replaces the pic rail base of any MRD and get a much lower profile.

I've mounted and used both. Dr. Optic is now owned by Trijicon and the RMR is the first "joint project".
Older Dr. Optics are available and comparable to Burris FF. For the money either of those are good but
both need batteries and adjustments can be tricky on the FNP tacticals. RMR is ALOT more expensive
but I chose it on my own weapons because of the dual illumination and adjustments

I have the battery powered RMR on mine (red dot, not the amber), and I haven't had any issues with it yet. The gun isn't a bedside gun to me, so when I'm not using it, I just put the cover on and it turns the sight off. I would recommend it, the only issue is the price.
