    Default RMR for .22 Pistol

    Hereís a question for everyone:

    I have a Ruger 22/45 pistol that I bought a suppressor for. I decided it wonít be complete without also adding an RMR. Which RMR would people recommend given the caliber and itís limi?

    I would opt for this one: Trijicon RM06-C-700672 3.25 adjustable type 2

    I have an older 22/45 and have had tube style red dots as well as an older doctor optic, it currently is just equipped with just irons.

    If you're going to permanently mount an rmr, I would go with something like this.

    Outerimpact Red Dot Adapter/Mount for Ruger Mark I, II, III, IV, IV-Lite, 22/45 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B019HJ2ZIO..._8tLsBb98NYXJZ

    I tried a red dot with the Ruger rail and it honestly sucked in that configuration. The rail was super long and didn't interface with the sights. I recently took everything off and am just running the stock sights now.

    Recoil is nothing and there isn’t a reciprocating slide on the 22/45. I might consider something cheaper for this role.

    The Shield might be a good choice, though not sure what the mounting options are. Or perhaps the Holosun RMR copy.

    Yeah. That's the route I went. I put a Burris FF on mine (a Shield would be better). A 22/45 has no recoil and isn't a fighting gun. I figure if the Burris craps out just as I'm being attacked by a pack of jihadist squirrels, I can just point shoot and take my chances.

    Good idea. I may try that. I’m more worried about having it be accurate but if these cheaper optics hold zero, that might work.

    For what it's worth, the Bullseye shooters really like the Ultradots.

    If you want to be able to see your irons you can get an offset c-more mount for the railway that has the window at 3 o'clock and inline with the bore.

    While a .22 has little recoil there is a reciprocating bolt so there likely is some stress on the sights. Probably any of the mentioned red dots will work. I have been using inexpensive tube type RDS on .22 pistols for NRA bullseye pistol shooting and they seem to stand up to it. If the .22 was used for life and death scenarios I would opt for the more expensive RMR types shifts.
