Introducing the highly anticipated RMR HD and RCR red dot sights, the latest innovations from Trijicon that are set to redefine your shooting experience. As the newest members of the Trijicon optics lineup, these sights bring a host of advanced features and benefits that cater to both enthusiasts and professionals alike.

The RMR HD takes aim at perfection with its meticulously engineered design. Sporting a generously proportioned window, this red dot sight offers an expansive field of view, allowing you to effortlessly acquire and track targets. The ingenious top-loading battery design ensures swift and hassle-free power replacement, keeping you in the action without missing a beat.

What truly sets the RMR HD apart is its adaptive reticle system. Tailoring your sight picture has never been easier – whether you prefer a pinpoint red dot or a segmented circle, the RMR HD empowers you to fine-tune brightness levels to match your unique focus requirements. Its window size strikes a balance between the classic RMR and the SRO, guaranteeing a harmonious blend of compactness and performance.

Meanwhile, the RCR, or Ruggedized Close Reflex Sight, marks Trijicon’s official entry into the realm of closed emitter red dot sights designed specifically for pistols. Sporting the familiar RMR footprint, the RCR carries the torch of durability with its robust construction, ensuring it can withstand the rigors of demanding environments. Enhanced electronics further elevate its performance, delivering rapid target acquisition and precise accuracy.

With an array of reticle options, the RCR gives you the flexibility to choose the ideal aiming point for your shooting style and preferences. Whether it’s a simple dot, a segmented circle, or a combination, the RCR empowers you to align your aiming solution with your individual needs.

Below is the product description and features of the Trijicon RMR HD and the RCR.

Trijicon RCR

An extremely rugged and durable closed emitter optic which meets the demanding standards for military and law enforcement applications. The Trijicon RCR™ represents the next evolution of the Trijicon RMR® and is designed to be as durable as the legendary Trijicon ACOG®, while also improving precision and accuracy with any style or caliber of firearm in any type of environment. The RCR can withstand direct impacts and survive in the harshest environments, while still providing enhanced accuracy and an excellent field of view. The RCR does this while not requiring additional or new plates to be used as it works with the current RMR bolt pattern and direct mounts without the use of a dovetail.


Multi-Platform-Friendly, No Additional Plates Needed The Trijicon RCRTM has a unique patented mounting system that allows the optic to mount using the Trijicon RMR® bolt pattern.

True-Color, Multi-Coated Lens
Wide-band light transmission ensures minimal change in target area color.

The Trijicon RMR HD and RCR red dot sights seek to represent the new standard of optical engineering, marrying form and function in perfect harmony. The new red dot optics allows shooters the durability, reliability, and track record that Trijicon has built with the RMR.
