Whenever something new enters the market end users begin comparing it to the status quo. That is good as Choices and Wants are what capitalism and the American dream are all about. And fulfilling those WANTS are what drives commerce and progress and life on planet earth. The Trijicon RMR has been the status quo now for more than six years. But by the admission of insiders at Trijicon, it is a big ponderous machine that changes slowly and react, it seems, always too late to market demands. Nonetheless, the Trijicon RMR sits atop more handguns than any other red dot today. When we began this red dot pistol odyssey in 2009 the RMR was the only optic sufficiently rugged for the purpose. But others have been watching and moving to take some market share from Trijicon. One of these companies is Leupold. Leupold has been around for a very long time doing the same thing...making optics. When I was a team sniper the scope on my rifle was a Leupold 3.5x10. The scopes on my personal rifles today, even... Read more →


SUAREZ TRIJICON RMR RED DOT SIGHT INSTALLATION FOR S&W MP PISTOLS OUR PACKAGE INCLUDES MOUNTING INTERFACE, AND SCREWS We custom mount the Trijicon RMR optic on your M&P. We mill the slide to reduce the overall profile of the optic, bringing it down much closer to the bore than is possible with the C.O.R.E. system. We ado not alter the function or reliability of the internal workings of the slide. That includes milling the slide for the Trijicon RMR Red Dot Sight of your choice and adding our Suppressor Sights which are included in the price. The Mounting Plate and Screws are included. What the Mounting Plate does is insulate the RMR from shock, and moisture, as well as protect the battery. The Slide Saddle is a piece of metal sculpted to fit the milled out RMR dovetail for those times when the end-user wishes to use the pistol without the RMR. If you choose to add one, they come in black only. We process and return slides within 30 days, although we will try to get it to you... Read more →


There is an old saying that "the customer is always right". If your only goal is to take their money, then yes...I suppose that is true. But my organization began as an educational group, where ostensibly, the customer doesn't know, and it is our job to educate them. When we began the gear side of the company, that educational ethos was brought over. The bottom line is that the customer sometimes doesn't know what he doesn't know, and rather than attempt to give them what they want, even if what they want is a substandard item, we seek to educate them and show them what works best and why we do things the way we do them. One example was the "sights in front of the red dot" that was floating around some years ago. We discussed the history and thinking behind the market's reasoning in our book Red Dot Combat Pistols. Today's example is the cutting of windows into a slide. The thinking is that a light slide will recoil less and be able to shoot faster because it... Read more →

Selecting Your Trijicon RMR

I often get questions about which RMR a buyer should add to their pistol. There is no easy answer. It depends on what the end user wants as each has advantages and liabilities. We can divide existing Trijicon RMRs into three groups. First are the Dual Illuminated units. These are comprised of the RM03 (13 MOA Amber Dot), RM04 (7 MOA Amber Dot), RM05 (9 MOA Amber Dot), RM05G (9 MOA Green Dot), RM08 (13 MOA Amber Triangle), and RM08G (13 MOA Green Triangle). They are all within a few dollars of each other, but the Dual Illuminated are the lowest cost RMRs. They can be identified by the grey plastic shroud that wraps around what some call the "cat ears" on the RMR. The advantage of these is that they will never need a battery since they run on fiber optics that gather existing light and fuse it onto the dot or triangle. In reduced light where the fiber optic has collected nothing, an internal tritium element powers the dot. For some of our customers that tend to travel... Read more →


Difference Between Rifle and Handgun Red Dot Systems

When running a red dot on a rifle, like an M4, your head is automatically positioned to instantly pick up the red dot as the rifle is mounted. This is due to the additional points of body contact afforded by a rifle (stock and handguard). A pistol however, does not offer those additional points of contact. You will not use the red dot the same way as the rifle regardless of how tuned your draw is. However, with the traditional placement of the iron sights, sights that the eye has been trained to seek through countless draws in the past, the eye will go to the irons initially as they have always done in the past. The instant the iron sights are picked up, BAM, there is the red dot, and the eye can let go of the irons and use the red dot...ignoring the irons for any further use. The "visual hand-off" takes place and becomes almost automatic. The irons serve as "runway lights" to get the eye where it needs to be to pick up the red dot.... Read more →

The Rear Sight Should Be Behind The Red Dot

I want to take a page or two to discuss the relative positioning of the red dot sight in relation to the iron sights. Sometimes I think if I came out with a verifiable supplement that would double the size of your penis and at the same time make every young woman within a half mile want you, there are men in the gun community that would say that a small penis actually was better and that real men did not desire young women. Why would they say that? Because it was my idea, and not theirs - pure and simple. It is, after all is said and done....about money. When everyone is broke, everyone is friendly. But when they are competing for market share, well...business is war. And right now the focus is either to develop a different system than ours and claim superiority, or to copy what we are already doing. Like everything else, we need to know the source and reasoning...and history of each development to understand its motivations and validity. The first installations of red dot... Read more →
