RS-M by BelOMO

MMW named Vavilov, logo
This is a new and interesting micro red dot which is sturdier and tougher feeling than most I have seen on the market. First impressions of RS-M are quite good and I like this more than the other BelOMO offerings to date, and it is immediately tied with PK01-VS in my mind.

The RS-M is heavier than other micro red dots by a couple ounces, coming in at 6.3 on my scale. The extra weight is the sturdy mounting system and what feels like a cast iron optic body. I feel like you can throw RS-M like a grenade and take someone out by impact alone. It's a tough little chunk of metal. The paint is similar to PK01-VS and has a rugged feel to it.

Elevation and windage clicks are positive and feel good. They do not have caps and are adjusted by a small flat head screwdriver.

I have not had time to do a battery test as of March 2017 but will gather a few of the new optics acquired in 2016 and do a fresh test of those soon. RS-M takes CR2025 batteries but I do not expect it to last as long as PK01-VS. There are 11 brightness settings and it looks like setting 1 or 2 may be NV compatible. I am unable to see the dot with the naked eye in the dark on settings 1-3 FWIW but have not been able to test with NVGs yet

Dot appears to be 2 MOA or so

RS-M unfortunately does not use the AimPoint micro screw pattern and aftermarket mounts will not fit. This clamp is extremely firm however, and feels quite well made

This is my preferred rifle combo for RS-M, an Izhmash SGL31 tacticooled out with a bit of ZenitCo gear. Height over dustcover on this one is 1.75" which is quite comfortable
