Trijicon RMR Wins Coveted ‘Optic Of The Year' Award
From Shooting Industry Academy Of Excellence
Wixom, MI – -(AmmoLand.com)- Trijicon, Inc., the world leader in the development of a wide range of Brilliant Aiming Solutions™ for the military, law enforcement and hunting/shooting markets, has been honored by the Firearms Marketing Group’s (FMG) Academy of Excellence for its innovative new Trijicon RMR™ Sight.
The patent-pending new generation Trijicon Ruggedized Miniature Reflex™ won the prestigious “Optic of the Year” category at the recent Shooting Industry Master’s tournament in East Granby, Connecticut. Shooting Industry Magazine has held the popular annual award selection process since 1992, when it created a program that quickly became known for its integrity, with final selections based solely upon merit of the individual products and companies nominated. The winners are selected by 500 top industry executives, gun dealers and outdoor writers, as opposed to being decided on by an editorial board or influenced by advertising clout.
The Trijicon RMR had some stiff competition in the Academy’s optics category. However, it is the toughest red dot sight on the market, designed to improve shooter precision and accuracy with any style or caliber of weapon. Plus, unlike other red dot sights on the market, this innovative solution was designed for superior durability under the most extreme conditions and is the world’s first battery-free mini reflex sight, measuring a mere 1.78”L X 1.24”W X1.03”H and weighing in at only 1.22 oz.
“We designed the new RMR sight to be as rugged and versatile as our own Trijicon ACOGs, as well as to provide ease of sighting and adjustment, solving important issues often associated with other red dot sights,” says Tom Munson, Trijicon’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “We’ve been thrilled with the overwhelming response from the industry, and receiving this award from the members of the Academy is a true affirmation that our efforts to innovate are resonating throughout all channels in the marketplace.”
