Trijicon was first to the game with the micro red dots, almost a decade ago. The purpose-built sights, sized to fit pistols, changed the game with red dot carry and suppressor ready guns. This year, they take that to the next level with the RMR 2.

The new Type 2 has been rebuilt with ruggedness and durability as the key objectives. A long time in this market has shown just what abuse mountains of handgun ammo can do to an optic, and the RMR Type 2 is a result of that knowledge. The new model also features button lock mode, perfect for the new breed of red dot concealed carry users. The lock allows you to holster/ unholster the gun without inadvertently changing the illumination settings.
Also new for this year, the Accu-point. While not as well known for it, Trijicon has been making variable power scopes for some time as well. The Accupoint series features the same fiber and tritium illumination as the ACOG series, no dependence on batteries. New for this year, the Accupoint is available in 4-16X and at an MSRP of $1,399.
In keeping with the scope that made Trijicon, we also got a chance to see the one-millionth ACOG. This sight gives warm and fuzzy’s to everyone that has carried one in harm’s way, myself included.
The full history of the ACOG is worth reading.
