Trijicon RMR® FAQ's

<< back to all FAQ's

What is the MOA of the Trijicon RMR?

The Trijicon RMR is available in three models with different reticle patterns.  The first RMR model is the LED version.  This comes in a 3.25 MOA Red Dot (RM01) and a 6.5 MOA Red Dot (RM02).  The second RMR model is the Dual-Illuminated version.  There are currently four reticles available for this model: a 13.0 MOA Amber Dot (RM03), a 7.0 MOA Amber Dot (RM04), a 9.0 MOA Amber Dot (RM05), and a 12.9 MOA Amber Triangle (RM08).  The last model available is the Adjustable LED version.  This comes in a 1.0 MOA Red Dot (RM09-C-700304), a 3.25 MOA Red Dot (RM06) and a 6.5 MOA Red Dot (RM07). 

How should I clean the lens of my Trijicon RMR sight?

We suggest that you used compressed air to remove any large debris to avoid scratching the lens. Once clear of debris, use an ordinary glass cleaner or car wax. A mild plastic polish will remove minor swirl type scratching. It is important to avoid the use of any strong solvents like lacquer thinner or bore cleaner near the lens as they will damage the lens coatings. Use of a motorized polishing device on the lens will also cause damage to the unit’s lens.

Is the Trijicon RMR waterproof?

All RMR's are rated to pressures equivalent to depths of 66 feet/20 meters.

Why is the new RMR lens bluer than the previous version?

The coating is to maximize the efficiency of reflecting the LED's wavelength resulting in a longer battery life.

What is the Dual Illuminated RMR battery life?

The RM03, RM04, RM05 and RM08 are battery-free.  The illumination sources for the reticles inside the Dual-Illuminated RMR are tritium and fiber optics.

What is the Adjustable LED RMR battery life?

The RM06 and RM07 battery should last four years of continual use at brightness setting #4. When left on at the brightest setting (brightness setting #8), the battery should last around 25 days.

What is the LED RMR battery life?

The RM01 and RM02 models are rated at two years typical use.

Does the Cerakote™ paint used on Trijicon products have slight variations in color from one optic to another?

Yes, as with all paint processes, Cerakote is created in batches. One batch can be slightly darker or lighter than another. One batch may have a bit more gloss than the other. This is due to the way the paint is processed and a very slight variation in the mix can cause slight variations in color or gloss.

When should the RMR sealing plate be used?

The RMR sealing plate should be used if ANY of the following are true:

1. Mounting surface is interrupted, or
2. Mounting surface has through features, or
3. Mount surface does not fully encompass sealing boundary


What parts are needed to mount an RMR on my Glock® MOS?

To mount an RMR on the Glock® MOS pistol, a Trijicon RMR Mounting kit (AC32064) is required. This part is not included with the RMR or the Glock® MOS.
