Im looking for some experience here please. My eyes are getting tired so I'm looking at installing a Trijicon RMR sight on my pistol, or pistols if its as great as I think its going to be.
  So I would like to know which of these optics work the best in general as indoors low light, outdoors in sunlight or anything in between. They are the RMR Dual Illuminated verses the Adjustable LED???

Ive read the Dual Illuminated has a glare problem at times in the sun?

Thanks Guys!
J

I've never used the dual illuminated version and have only peered through them in stores. I've never been interested in the dual illuminated RMRs simply because the dots and triangles offered in that version are much larger than I prefer.

However, I do have the adjustable LED version with 1MOA dot and the previous non-adjustable LED version with 3MOA dot. I even use both on pistols as you're planning to do. The 3MOA non-adjustable one is mounted on my Ruger 22/45, and the 1MOA adjustable one resides on my Glock 20SF. Other than the fact they're pretty expensive, I have almost no complaints. If I had to nitpick, the dot in the non-adjustable model becomes a little more difficult to acquire if you're aiming toward bright sunlight, not due to glare, but due to lower contrast. I can adjust dot intensity high enough on the adjustable one that I can compensate.

I love the RMR! It's very light, very small, very tough, and foolproof. Unlike the adjustable version, the non-adjustable model doesn't have any means for turning off the LED when not in use except for removing the battery. I've had it for 5 years now, and it's still using the same battery it shipped with when I bought it, despite it being on continuously ever since. We're talking Aimpoint-level battery life here.

I've never experienced a significant enough glare problem in bright sun that it prevented me from being able to aim at targets at pistol shooting distance.

Thanks Ted!  Your information helps me a lot.  Actually I should of listed this under pistol optics, I suppose. However its used on ARs too.

Have any of you guys used the Dual Illuminated version?

I have the dual illumination model on a Glock 22 and like it allot.  I hear the "LED batteries last a long, long time" allot but still prefer the tritium and sunlight option more (till the tritium dies, of course.)

Be aware that moving from a traditional iron sight to a reflext sight takes some training, it isn't as intuitive as you might think.  But once you do it and like it, you'll want more!
