The new Trijicon RMRcc is the concealed carry version of the RMR Type 2 Red Dot Sight. As more people begin to carry red dot sights on their CCW’s, they’re starting to find out that smaller frame pistols are not as compatible as larger pistols. This is because no other company has adapted as fast as Trijicon in developing a red dot sight that is specifically designed for the smallest pistols on the market. The RMRcc is thinner, lighter, and has a lower profile than any other red dot sight on the market, including the RMR Type 2 and Leupold Delta Point Pro. It’s built with the same CR2032 Lithium Battery as the RMR Type 2, which gives the optic a 4-year battery life. If you’re interested in using an optic on your CCW, I highly recommend using continuing to read the blog below for the most up-to-date information.

10 Reasons You Buy The Trijicon RMRcc

  1. The 7075-T6 forged aluminum housing is one single piece and is designed to divert the force of the operation away from the lens. This improves the durability of the optic and ensures it never rattles loose.
  2. The RMRcc is built with the same snag-free design as the RMR Type 2. This provides a crisp and clean pull every time you draw your gun from your holster.
  3. The RMRcc is built with the true-color, multi-coated lens to provide an accurate representation of the target. In normal lighting, this isn’t needed, but if the sun is out and hits the lens or if the twilight or moonlight catches the lens, I could cause glare or misrepresentation of your target. This lens ensures that no matter the environment, you’ll always see the correct color of your target.
  4. You can buy the RMRcc in either a 3.25 MOA or 6.5 MOA, depending on your shooting style and preference. Personally, I’d choose the 3.25 MOA because you can still shoot with both eyes open and the reticle is going to be smaller and more precise.
  5. One of the worst feelings if you’re hiking, hunting, or just outside is dropping electronics into water. The RMRcc is built to be 100% waterproof up to 66 feet of water (20 meters). If you’re stuck in a torrential downpour or drop your pistol in a river or lake, you have 66 feet to recover it before you take on water. Luckily, there are not many rivers or lakes that are 66 feet deep to even worry about.
  6. The windage and elevation require no extra tools to adjust. Each click represents 3 MOA to take out the guessing game of how much you’re adjusting your reticle.
  7. All Electronics are upgraded in the RMRcc and the RMR Type 2. The battery contacts are much more stable to ensure optimal performance when you need it most.
  8. Sometimes you’ll hear that “less is more” with electronics. In regard to Apple products, I tend to agree. However, I think it’s a fine line that Trijicon crushed in their RMRcc. They offer 8 distinct brightness settings, which includes a super bright mode that is as bright as a car headlight. They also include 2-night vision modes for shooting in twilight or complete darkness.
  9. The “Lock-out” button is an awesome feature that secures the auto-brightness setting feature. If you’re not sure about using the manual settings, try the auto-brightness setting first. The auto setting changes the brightness based on the environment that you’re in.
  10. The “Lock-in” button is similar to the lock-out, except it secures the manual brightness setting that you prefer for your everyday carry. So even if you drop or rub your pistol against the holster or clothing, the brightness setting will not change.

Who Should Buy The Trijicon RMRcc?

With thousands of shooters going toward using red dot sights on pistols, you’re going to continue to see a lot of info about which is best to use. Trijicon is one of the most respected names in optics and has always produced great products that you can count on. I recommend the RMRcc for experienced shooters because I believe it’s more important to master the fundamentals before you add attachments. Anyone with a concealed carry license should consider using a red dot sight because the target acquisition time (especially under stress) is faster with an optic than iron sights. There is no getting around the fact that the RMRcc is going to cost more than most of your CCW, so if you don’t carry often or only shoot for target practice, I wouldn’t bother with this kind of purchase.

What Is The Difference Between the 3.25 MOA RMR®cc and the 6.5 MOA RMRcc?

The only real difference between the 3.25 and 6.5 MOA is the size of the reticle and the subsequent level of accuracy at longer ranges. The price, specs, and size are the same between the two models. The reticle will be bigger on the 6,5 MOA model and give you a quicker target acquisition time than the 3.25 MOA RMRcc. You’ll be much more accurate for follow up shots with the 3.25 MOA model and be able to shoot accurately at longer ranges than the 6.5 RMRcc. It’s up to you to decide whether or not you want a smaller reticle for more precision or a larger reticle for easier and quicker target acquisition.

What Guns Will Fit the RMRcc?

Trijicon did a great job of ensuring that the most popular CCW’s are compatible with the new RMRcc. I created a table to show you which models for each brand are compatible and which mounting part you’d need to install the RMRcc to each pistol. If your CCW isn’t on the list, don’t give up hope just yet. If you’re wanting more information or need to know if your gun can fit the RMRcc, call them at 1-800-338-0563.

What is the Difference Between the Trijicon RMRcc and the Trijicon RMR Type 2?

As you can see with the tables below, the biggest differences are in the overall size, weight, width, and height of the optic. Both RMR’s are incredible products with great reviews fro mall of the top shooter’s in our country. The most noticeable difference is the MOA options for the RMR are much more than the RMRcc (1.0, 3.25, 6.25). Each tick for the RMR is 1/MOA versus 1/3 MOA for the RMRcc. The field of view for the RMR Type 2 is going to be slightly larger too with a .22x .33″ difference between the two optics. The whole point of the RMRcc is to ensure the size of the smallest CCW’s is not negated by a larger red dot sight. Trijicon was able to pack the same power, durability, and reliability of the RMR Type 2 into the smaller RMRcc to accommodate the smallest guns on the market.
