RMRcc Micro Optic, New From Trijicon

As concealed carry pistols get smaller, and more popular in holsters and sock drawers across America, the drive to optimize accessories of all kinds for these pistols has become top priority for aftermarket manufacturers. Trijicon has finally delivered an optic to this market that many have been hoping for for some time now: the RMR Concealed Carry, RMRcc for short.

Compared to the full-size RMR, the RMRcc is 0.1 inches shorter and 0.2 inches narrower than the full-size RMR. With an overall width of only 0.9 inches and a “loaded” weight (battery installed) of a measly 1 ounce, the RMRcc appears to be diminutive in all aspects except performance.

RMRcc RMR comparison

The RMRcc takes all of the RMR’s strengths and squeezes them into a slightly smaller package. The RMRcc still features 7075-T6 aluminum housing, with the signature “owl ears” shape that enhanhaces drop protection. It’s still waterproof to 66 feet, and still features an up-to-4-years runtime on a single CR 2032 battery. Brightness is adjustable with side buttons and both 3.25 MOA and 6 MOA dots are available.

That’s the good news. The bad news is that we’re told the RMRcc will not align with a standard RMR footprint, nor does it share a footprint with any other optic currently on the market. If you have a slide that’s already milled for other micro optics like a Shield RMSc or Holosun 507K, you won’t be able to swap optics. Likewise, you will not be able to mount the RMRcc onto anything milled for a standard RMR. But Trijicon is also releasing a series of mounts for the RMRcc that will fit dozens of platforms. For pocket pistoleros, single-stack Glocks, SIGs, Walthers and Springfields are all covered, as are S&W Shields and even Kimber Micro 9s. Interestingly, full-size Glocks, Glock MOS pistols and standard-size 1911s are also covered. Because of the narrower profile, the RMRcc may be easier and more aesthetically pleasing to mount on the 1911 slide. Trijicon says it will handle recoil from both .45ACP and 10mm.


The RMRcc itself is set at $699 MSRP, with the various mounts all landing roughly between $70-$100 each. We’ve already got our hands on one and look forward to putting it through the wringer before reporting back here.

    Everyone: Thank god for the established footprint everyone is using for Micro Red Dots. No one is dumb enough to do their own thing.
