Couple of questions for you guys familiar with the RMRs. The Trijicon website isn't all that full of details.

I'm thinking about picking up an RMR to mount on one of my Glocks (not sure which one yet).

1. There are a bunch of different models, with different reticles, illumination, etc. Are any of them NVG compatible? It doesn't look like it, but I have seen some people say it works.

2. One of my big questions is what moa/reticle are you guys using? I haven't had the opportunity to check one out in person, so I'm not sure what to go with. This is for combat shooting applications, so I'm looking for quick acquisition, not precision/competition shooting. That being said, I still want the capability of firing a precise shot at a reasonable distance, just as I could with standard sights.

3. I know I need the Glock mount, but do I need to modify the slide for fitting?

Have the slide milled for mounting the RMR then use tall supressor iron sights for cowitness.
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 6:12:34 AM EST
The ones I have seen have had the slide milled.

As far night vision they work but not all that great. IR laser kicks its ass.

I like the dot.

I just got my M&P slide back from L&M Precision yesterday after having an RMR06 put on it.

After doing a ton of research, the RMR06 with a 3.25MOA dot in the 108xxx + serial number range seems to be the way to go. These have the upgraded internals that are more robust for being mounted on a slide.

Eventually I'm going to get an ATOM mount/slide for my G19 too.

That's pretty much what I was thinking.

My G19 gen4 slide is in getting milled now for an RM07 and suppressor sights

If I like it I may consider getting my G26 milled for another RM07 but will eliminate the iron sights.

Do you still use the trijicon glock mount when milling?

I've been thinking about getting an ATOM Slide with a Trijicon RMR.

For folks that do not want to mill their slide to mount an optic, ALG Defense prototyped a Aimpoint micro mount for the Glock. This was introduced at SHOT Show 2013 and details will be posted to ALG Defense's Facebook in the very near future. In addition, a Glock magwell adapter will also be released in the near future.

no, the slide gets drilled & threaded

If you are not deadset on the trijicon,Larue makes an aimpoint micro mount that fits the stock dovetail on a glock. The mount and aimpoint are $550 or so.

Looks really cool.

Bet it'll be massively overpriced though.

The RMR-06 works great with night vision. The rear night sights are also visible in this image, although they are blurry.

And I'm assuming adjustable LED you can adjust the brightness?

Dual illum has tritium and fiberoptic, LED you adjust the brightness. I have RMR basic one with the 8 moa dot on my G19. Love it, took a while to get used to but once I did it was like a bolt of lightning.

Tactical Slide for Glock 17/19 with RMR cuttout.

It only has 2 reviews the negative review was because of an issue with supplied screws that they have fixed now. I was thinking of setting up a 19 with one of these.

Those were designed at the request of a unit who does a significant amount of training for storming aircraft.

I'd say pick up the RMR02. Guys have been reporting 3 years of constant on and great durability.

The RMR07 is NV compatible, but I've heard of issues with the adjustable models.

Id also say to take a look at the Unity Tactical ATOM mount. Once installed it allows the user to change MRDS without remilling the slide. Due to the proprietary nature of MRDS mounting patterns, once the slide is milled, it's milled and it's difficult to change your mind. The ATMO allows swappable baseplates for different optics, and if you decide to go back to irons there's a baseplate for that too.

It's really slick, and I'm waiting for the elusive M&P version.

I hit a metal gong on the third shot at 200+ yards. Witnessed by three others.

Iron sights and g17

I shoot steel plates with my G17 at 200 on a regular basis. Standard night sights. Off hand is tough, but bench rest is not all that difficult. Usually need a couple shots to walk it in, but I've gotten first round hits once or twice.

Edited for quote fail.

NVG compatible shouldn't even be a concern for a sidearm. The only real way that works is if you mount the NVG's on the weapon/rifle. It's pointless with a pistol. I'd love to know what combat pistol application you're talking about. I think this could make the thread interesting.

Disagree. Helmet mounted PVS-7 or 14 works just fine with long guns or handguns, but makes standard handgun sights useless.

So now the question is, which Glock to mount it to?

17, 20, or 21?

Tactical Slide for Glock 17/19 with RMR cuttout.

It is a very nice slide. I was probably one of the first to order this from Brownells. I called them and told them long ago that the supplied screws with the RMR were too long and the right screw would pass through into the extractor cavity and bind the extractor depressor plunger. I even cited information found on the One Source Tactical website, but they just brushed me off. I ended up ordering screws from elsewhere that day and everything is peachy. Last product I ever bought from Brownells, but the slide rocks.

Those were designed at the request of a unit who does a significant amount of training for storming aircraft.

I'd say pick up the RMR02. Guys have been reporting 3 years of constant on and great durability.

The RMR07 is NV compatible, but I've heard of issues with the adjustable models.

Id also say to take a look at the Unity Tactical ATOM mount. Once installed it allows the user to change MRDS without remilling the slide. Due to the proprietary nature of MRDS mounting patterns, once the slide is milled, it's milled and it's difficult to change your mind. The ATMO allows swappable baseplates for different optics, and if you decide to go back to irons there's a baseplate for that too.

It's really slick, and I'm waiting for the elusive M&P version.
Honestly? Why not pick up a CORE?

I've thought about it. Not sure I'd get enough out of my M&P to make it worth trying to sell it.

That is one of the IR lasers I am looking to test.

What about the IR only LG-417? Doesn't have a red laser, but it has a class 1 IR laser and is civilian legal.

I put an aimpoint micro on a G19 with the dovetail adapter. seems OK so far. Holds zero.

Milled slides are probably better, but the dovetail adapter was only 50 instead of 500.
