Designed to seamlessly function on the slimmest concealed carry pistols, the Trijicon RMRcc gets on-person self-defense handguns on target.

Red dots have come a long way. Time was, the aiming solution was unwieldy and, worse yet, unreliable—barely fit for the most novel uses. Not anymore. Battle-hardened, the sights have become worthy additions on the most deadly serious firearms. And they keep getting better. Case in point, the new Trijicon RMRcc red-dot.

An advancement of the optic maker’s RMR, the reflex sight shaves down the size making it fit for some of the most popular concealed-carry pistols available. By this, we mean the next generation of ultra-slim polymer pistols and, of course, the svelte 1911. Neither play well with a wide swath of today’s optical sights. At .9 inch in width, the RMRcc has room to spare atop most any slimline pistol presently available.

Trijicon didn’t stop doing away with the sight’s muffin top on slim slides. The company also cut down the height of the RMRcc to an extremely manageable .9 inch, creating an easier-to-carry option that reduces the chance of a snag upon draw. Additionally, tipping the scales at a mere 1 ounce, it adds little to weigh carry pistols down.

It being Trijicon, the reflex sight is built battle tough, giving shooters peace of mind it will function when they need it to. To this end, the body is constructed of 7075-T6 aluminum that is tested to military standards and backed by Trijicon's rigorous testing methodology. Furthermore, the shape of the RMRcc is such that it diverts shock away from the lens, ensuring it’s more important feature withstands the rigors of everyday use. This includes the recoil shock of stouter caliber handguns, such as the .45 ACP and 10mm.

Available with either a 3.25 or 6.5 MOA dot size, the RMRcc provides a bright illuminated aiming point under any condition. It is fully adjustable for windage and elevation (without the need for special tools), parallax-free and features automatic and manual (eight settings) brightness controls. Perhaps best of all, the sight is an energy sipper. Powered by a common 2032 battery, the RMRcc provides up to 4 years of illumination.

The sight works with a wide variety of mounts, making it compatible with a large swath of the most popular compact and slim concealed carry pistols. Presently, the MSRP of the RMRcc is $699.
