I was just looking at the RMR's... what is with Trijicon and that "amber" reticle?

I think the RMR needs to be battery powered and fiber optic in RED, but its with a battery and no fiber or fiber and no battery... maybe red fiber optic with green battery power for low light...

I have never been satisfied with anything I look at from them... so I have never spend the $1600+ it would take to get a Acog CLOSE to how I want it...

that's my vent and I'm sticking to it...............

I'm giving a 4/10 simply because he used a rainbow. I don't see rainbow slides in rants too often

A battery powered Trijicon product!?......Really!?....But tritium is how they makes there livin'. My ACOG makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside cause' I know it will always work, at least for the next 10 years or so.

I dunno, I love my TR21 with the amber triangle reticle. Works great in all lighting conditions.

I too have looked over many trijicon products and found them wanting everytime

The reticle is too hard to make out quickly, the eye relief is too short

The biggest complaint is that it is a 4x fixed power optic––––––-they want $1000 plus for––––-it makes no sense the acog should be priced nearer to the Aimpoint $500-$700 tops there is no way it is worth the $1200 they ask for with the glaring short comings and the new 1-4x scopes that are coming out now.

YES !!!!
9/10 for sound argument -1 point for no mention of Obama

Trijicon are utter bastards !
They have the optics market completely cornered with their dolphin loving, planet saving lib-tard battery less sights and their gay agenda promoting fruity reticule colors !

If only there were some other companies out there to offer us manly men meat eaters a real electrics scope with crosshairs the color of fresh deer blood......

Amber is a very good color for people with color deficiencies. I have slight problems with various colors and was able to get my armorer to actually order an ACOG with the Amber reticle.

I do fine with red, green, or amber.

Here's the thing.
You don't like Trijicon products don't buy them, nobody is twisting your arm and they get plenty of business without yours.

Buy it once, trash the shit out of it repeatedly, have it completely serviced, no questions asked. Forever.

Your logic is backwards and just plain pointless. The fact that they don't use a battery has nothing to do with "lib-tard" or "manly men"... IF anything being free of battery dependence in your primary optic is a good thing in a survival situation/long term OP... Battery on a weapon = weakness. It's a battle of the benefit of the light or optic verse the dependence on battery power and I say of you can skip that on the optic and it works for you, then good.

Not to mention, REAL men don't need fancy over priced video game boy electric scopes they get it done with irons.

You are a tool. Obviously you have never used an ACOG, and one with an amber reticle...



Try one before you bitch.

I'm pretty sure there was a hint of sarcasm in there.

No, no, no!!!!!!! You must beat the seals to a pool of mush with your buttstock to be a manly man. Remember, the baby ones are best!

Maybe I am missing something here, but the RMR does come in battery powered with a red dot

No sir, you are backwards and pointless, i have a green laser, flashlight and a red/green eotech, all of which I got on Ebay, on my 10/22 and i can assure you that i am manly in ways that you can only imagine.....
Also batteries= weakness, I have no worries about running out of AA's, as my wife thoughtfully stockpiles them in the drawer next to her bed.

Sadly it doesn't emit the smell of bacon, but I have a modified speed stock that accepts a Ball Park if it's carefully cut into 2 1/2" lengths......

Good day !
