Spend $50 more and get the SRO. MUCH more glass and field of vision. 2.5moa dot that will allow you to see more target even at distance. uses same mounting plate/pattern

If you are buying a new one for competition, no reason to get the RMR. Get the SRO. Way bigger window and great for competition. And I have actually used them both.

The RMR, while tough, does have about the smallest useful window of any of the mini red dots.  Good carry or duty optic, but not ideal for competition.

Absolutely not.

The SRO should only be considered as a gaming optic - not defense/duty.

Well then, there seems to be no advantage over a DPP or a Vortex Venom I guess?

I'd read the thread on this forum about SRO problems prior to becoming an unpaid beta tester for trijicon...  but all of them are going to crap out at some point.

The RMR has the smallest window, the least crisp dot, a tinted lens instead of crystal clear, and is one of the dimmer options out there.

 

But it’s really tough. 

 

It’s up to combat abuse, but it isn’t the best choice for competition use.

Personally I still go DPP 2.5 because its so proven but if you like to try the latest, greatest go SRO. Be aware, like others say, because its so new there are still a few issues people are working out.  If there are good reports for the next three months or so, I'll be trying the SRO next. JMHO

Aaron Cohen/sage dynamics did a review on YouTube you should check out. Proved the new design isn't as durable as the original rmr

Thanks guys, got that point.

 

Will look for another sport dot then.

😀

 

Actually there are the DPP, the Vortex Venom and the Shield.

Any other dots to recommend?

I use an RMR on my comp gun because I am trying to closely as possible match my carry gun.  You get used to it.

Nobody said holoson 507 since it has the same foot print as the rmr. I have both and like the holoson a little better. The circle dot helps those that have trouble finding just a dot even though you can select just a dot, circle, or circle and dot reticle. Base is already sealed so no need for a sealing plate like on the rmr. The holoson doesn't seem as bloomy to me with a sharper dot and less edge distortion. Half the price of a trijicon so you may want to keep that as an option.

I agree.  I have an RMR and two 507's and I would take a 507 over the RMR even if they cost the same.
