Trijicon® RCR™ Receives NRA Golden Bullseye Award  for American Rifleman 2024 Optic of the Year!

Wixom, MI – Trijicon®, Inc., global provider of innovative aiming solutions for the hunting, shooting, military, and law enforcement markets, is pleased to announce that the Trijicon RCR™ (Ruggedized Closed Reflex) has been selected as American Rifleman’s 2024 Optic of the Year. An extremely durable, American-made, closed emitter optic, the RCR meets the demanding standards for professional duty or personal-defense applications where a compact sealed emitter optic is needed.

The Trijicon RCR is ready for immediate adoption by any user who needs the durability and footprint of the RMR in a miniature sealed emitter reflex optic. The RCR is manufactured at the company’s headquarters in Wixom, Michigan using the same durability testing protocols as all Trijicon optics.

“The Trijicon RMR set the industry standard, and we wanted our first miniature sealed-emitter reflex to carry on that legacy of extreme durability and function", said John Trull, Trijicon Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “I believe we have surpassed that goal with the RCR, and it’s an honor to receive the American Rifleman Golden Bullseye Award.”

The RCR is waterproof to 66 ft., and able to achieve unprecedented levels of mechanical and electronic robustness. Built with 7075-T6 aluminum using the RMR patented shape, the RCR absorbs recoil and other impacts and diverts stresses away from the lenses.

Beyond the shape, the RCR also shares the RMR’s footprint. Employing Trijicon’s new, innovative capstan screw design, the RCR mounts directly on any slide or plate that currently accepts an RMR. The capstan screw system is easy to use, and testing has proven it to be incredibly robust, while also preventing over-torquing, cross threading, and stripping out of the screw head. The RCR is also the same deck height as the RMR, allowing for use with RMR-compatible iron sights.

Brightness settings are adjusted manually, with 10 brightness settings to choose from, including three night vision options and one super bright option. The LED illumination is powered by one CR2032 battery. The battery easily top-loads into the unit without the need to remove the RCR from the firearm and re-confirm zero after a battery change. Not that a user will need to change batteries very often. A single CR2032 battery will provide an amazing 6 years of continuous use at brightness setting 5 of 10 at 70°F.

A true-color, multi-coated lens provides wide-band light transmission to ensure minimal change in target area color. The 3.25 MOA red dot is easily adjustable for elevation and windage and no special tools are needed. Adjustments are at 1 MOA per click, with a total of 150 MOA travel possible.

The RCR includes upgraded electronics featuring ruggedized battery contacts and electronics to ensure performance and survivability in harsh environments. Adjustment buttons are distinctive and easy-to-use.
