    Is anyone else using a Trijicon Mini Red Dot or RMR as their primary optics on thier AR? I have one (MS03) mounted on a YHM 1/2" riser on my Tactical Solutions AR22 M4 upper/DPMS Lower and it works great.

    I don't use it as a primary optic, but I use a similar optic (Burris Fastfire II) on a 45 degree YHM mount as a backup to my scope...

    Nope...I find Trijicon stuff is WAY overpriced for most of their products...NcStar makes the same optic for $60

    I am wondering why anyone would want an 8MOA dot as their primary optic unless you only ever shoot at 25 yards or less. Especially one that costs over $300!

    8 MOA - the dot covers about 8" at 100 yards. Granted a .22 is not much use beyond that anyways.

    NCStar's $60 optic has a 5 MOA dot - I've read reports that they fail easily with any amount of recoil though.

    I can also use it on my .22 target pistol since it has the Weaver mount. I bought it used, but NIB for $250 (w/ mount), so I figured that I should probably use it....lol.

    It would probably be the ideal sight for a defensive 12 gauge shotgun.
    Just put the circle somewhere on the BG and pull the trigger.

    I'm actually raping mine to replace the screen on a Doctor Reflex...they wanted 180 Euro to repair it.

    Everything between the two is virtually the same...I don't see how it could fail any more than my Doctor would (which is hasn't) when the parts are virtually identical.
