What is RMR Footprint?

The RMR(Ruggedized Miniature Reflex) footprint is arguably the most common footprint on the market today, and it was first introduced by Trijicon upon production of their red dot sight with the same name.  It has two screw holes and two front bolts (recoil lug holes on the optic) in the corners. The RMR footprint has become a standard in the industry due to its practicality, compatibility, and reliability, making it a popular choice among firearm enthusiasts and professionals alike for integrating red dot optics onto various platforms.This is one of the most popular footprints used with pistol-mounted red dots.
