The Trijicon RMR is the gold standard for micro pistol reflex sights. Still to this day, this optic is the go-to for handgun, rifle, and shotgun usage.

Since this optic can survive much more recoil, it's recommended for a 44 Magnum revolver.

What are people saying about the TYPE 2 model - The RMR Type 2 is basically the same as the original model, but it's specifically built to handle handgun slide high speed G force.

The newly added feature, the battery compartment now has a better grip on the battery to prevent it from getting loose causing the dot to go out.

The optic is lightweight and has robust mounting points to go on the 44 Magnum.

3 MOA sizes - The 3.25 MOA model has the best dot size that is easy to pick up to shooting.



The Holosun 507C is a great Trijicon RMR alternative. It uses the same Trijicon RMR footprint to mount on the 44 revolver using existing RMR mount.

Multiple Reticle System - The user can cycle through:

  • 2 MOA Center dot
  • 32 MOA circle
  • 32 MOA circle + 2 MOA Dot

*Change by pressing the minus button for 3 seconds.

The 32 MOA circle helps significantly for picking up the sight faster because it's big and easier to see.

For the cost of this optic, you can get almost 2 Trijicon RMR’s. The battery life is great, and you will not disappoint.
