Default Red Dots: Trijicon RMR or Mepro M21

Anybody have experience with these 2? I'm having trouble deciding. I like the idea of no batteries in the M-21 and the X reticle, but the sleekness of the RMR is pretty sweet also. This RDS is going to begin service on a Sig522, but eventually move to a 5.56 rifle.

Just looking for personal use experiences.

Thought the RMR used battery and also tritium? I like the RMR myself but have not used one just based on Trijicons reputation.

I have the LED RMR (RM06) on my M&P handgun. I like the quality of the Trijicon. They do have a dual illuminated model that has the tritium/ fiber optics (no battery).

I prefer the RMR because it doesn't have a horrible bluish green tint like the Mepro.

The x-reticle Mepro excited me so much I started an AR build last November just for it, small, lightweight, but when it came to actually spend the money on the last item of the build, which was the optic, I totally changed course and bought a 1x24 triangle reticle Trij Reflex. Just cause all my other Trij is so great, I thought why try anything else. Very happy with the Reflex, at first it was disgustingly ugly, but two weeks later and three range trips and 300 rounds in, I love to shoot with it, and it ain't so ugly anymore. I have to say, it's very satisfying shooting well with no magnification.

I think comparing the RMR with the Mepro is apples to oranges right? It's Mepro vs. Reflex or RMR vs C-More et all right?
