Riton RT-R Mod 3 rifle red dot.

I received the Riton RT-R Mod 3 red dot test sample from Riton a couple months ago, and pressed it right into service. Mounting it with the included mount, I was able to cowitness the back up sights and get the red dot dialed in. Stepping off twenty five yards and checking zero, it was dead on. We then shot some 350 rounds through the Barnes Precision Machine 7.5″ 5.56 SBR, reviewed here and using the Liberty Suppressors Triumph silence to keep the noise down, reviewed here .

The red dot kept its zero throughout the review even when the rifle was passed off to a few other folks. You can see the large knob in the photo with the “R” on it, as you rotate the knob it cuts the red dot off then on with the next click. Each time the dot is turned on it increases in brightness, throughout the six brightness settings.

The included mount holds the optic above the Picatinny rail high enough to cowitness the back up sights. This is advantageous in the event your optic goes down you can go to your sights without having to remove the optic. This also helps verify zero, as correctly sighted in the 2 MOA dot will sit on top of the front sight post.


The elevation and windage knobs, 1 click is 1 MOA adjustment

The RT-R also includes flip up scope caps and the CR 2032 already installed.

The RT-R is water and shock proof, holding up well through the review.

I spent much of my youth involved with firearms and felt the call early on to the United States Marine Corps, following in my father's and his brother's footsteps. Just after high school I enlisted and felt most at home on the rifle range, where I qualified expert with several firearms and spent some time as a rifle coach to my fellow Marines. After being honorably discharged I continued teaching firearm safety, rifle and pistol marksmanship, and began teaching metallic cartridge reloading. In the late 1990s I became a life member to the National Rifle Association and worked with the Friends of the NRA. Around that time my father and I became involved with IDPA and competed together up until he passed away. I began reviewing firearms for publications in the mid 2000s and have been fortunate to make many friends in the industry. Continuing to improve my firearms skills and knowledge is a never ending journey in which we should all be committed. I am also credited as weapons master on a few independent films.
