View Full Version : RMR on a Stakeout

I have a couple of Tac-14s being put together for me at SI. I'm thinking about putting an RMR on one of them using the SI Stakeout RMR Mount (https://suarezinternational.com/suarez-shotgun-rmr-mount/).

Couple of questions:

- Does the Stakeout RMR need the Anti-Flicker-Free base plate (https://suarezinternational.com/suarez-anti-flicker-rmr-mount-sealing-plate/) like the pistols do?

-What's the best RMR to put on one of these rascals. I'm thinking dual illumination and that the bigger the dot the better. I don't have any experience with the triangles but wondered about those. Any input would be appreciated.

If it were me I'd go dual illumination. Less electronic connections and if stored long periods its non maintenance

I put the dual lamination Trijicon on my Stakeout...love it...

i was at therange today...shooting slugs, I was dead on at 20 yards...

Not with a Dual Illum model

Go with the dual illum dot. It is perfect for this application.

I like the triangles as well but don't think they are the best choice for a Stakeout. The benefit of the triangle, IMO, is using the top point as a fine point of aim...this is unnecessary with the Stakeout. But more importantly, the triangle is worse about wash out in low light. I can still see the dot in low light, my triangles wash out almost completely. Don't even consider the triangle for this one, trust me.

I did the dual ilum on mine with the triangle because I didn’t really know one way or the other. It does washout some but the shape size doesn’t bother me. My astigmatism is bad enough that that dots are more splotches anyway. Whichever RMR you go with, you will be happy you have one.

The shape of a triangle does not matter in this case. The triangle is very effective in full day light, but not bright enough in low light. In my opinion

Neither of the dual illumination Models ( triangle or dot ) are affected by astigmatism.

Agreed

Good to know

7moa or 9 Moa?
Green or Amber?

I prefer amber 7moa.

Same set-up on mine (dual/amber), even though my other RMR’s are LED. I was curious to try something different, and also read the recommendations. So glad I did. Wouldn’t change a thing!

A barrel with rifle sights is the easy button
for the dual illum washout issue. Just like
we put suppressor sights on our RMR'd
Glocks.

I have an older dual with an orange dot
on my Tac-14. Love it!

The ultimate sight system is rifle slug sights and RMR.

Im driving to Prescott for FoF this fall and brining my Stakeout. Would it be possible to have the slug sights added to it? I certainly don't mind paying a little extra for a "rush" job.

These are a weld on job requiring a refinish of the barrel.

Yeah I was afraid of that.

Are the other reasons to choose dual illumination besides no batteries/electronics?

Is there more failure with electronic red dots on heavy recoil shotguns?

They are a little less money than the LED models. The LED come in smaller dots, which is useful for more precision with pistols, either eyeballs at room distance or heads/bodies at longer distance. The bigger dot of the dual illums is not a downside for a shotgun. Some find the bigger dot a little faster to pick up with the eyes.
