Scott “Jedi” Jedlinski of Modern Samurai Project says:

There is No More “Red Dot Panic” – When you point out your handgun you always know where your dot is coming from, every… single… time. It is predictable and repeatable. A standard press out from your chest can place your red dot in the window (and outside the window) in different places every time.

Window Size Matters Less – When you already know where your red dot is before you can even see it, your confidence increases, you can game how fast or slow you move with intention, and having a huge window does not matter.

Overall, the new Trijicon RMRcc Red Dot Sights are a great product line. They are extremely durable, come with a crisp dot (with a choice between 3.25 MOA dot and 6.5 MOA dot), maintains zero throughout its lifetime (even after being subjected to extreme abuse), and fits almost all handguns and micro-compact pistols.

It comes with an MSRP of US$699 but you can buy it at a price around US$500 from a renowned retail site. RMRcc provides you with peace of mind and reliability that no other handgun sight provides. If you are looking for a high-quality sight for your small carry gun (either for self-defense or target shooting) for concealed carry and smooth draw, Trijicon RMRcc is definitely the best micro red dot available.
