The Trijicon RMR HD and MRO HD optics have been selected by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in a solicitation for rifle red-dot sights and mounts. The Trijicon MRO HD received a maximum threshold award of $7 million within the large objective lens category and the Trijicon RMR HD received a maximum threshold award of $4 million within the standard objective lens category.

The indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract will be filled over the next five years. All products will be produced in Trijicon’s Wixom, MI, factory.

Built on the foundation of the Trijicon RMR Adjustable LED model, the newly introduced RMR HD features a large, clear lens made from tempered glass and has the same footprint as the RMR. The larger lens provides an unobstructed view of the target and aids in finding and tracking the reticle more easily.

The new RMR HD reticle allows the user to toggle between a 55-MOA segmented circle reticle with a center dot, or a crisp dot-only option, both of which include a new super bright setting and an additional night vision setting. Models are available with either a 1.0-MOA or 3.25-MOA center dot.

The MRO HD has infinite eye relief for quick and accurate engagement no matter the shooting position. With its larger objective lens and shortened optical length, the MRO HD virtually eliminates the “tunnel vision” or tube-effect common to many red-dot sights. The 2.0-MOA center dot and 68-MOA segmented circle are bright and crisp, and are perfectly sized for fast target acquisition. The segmented circle can be toggled on or off, depending on the user’s needs.

It features eight brightness settings for each reticle, including two that are night vision compatible, five daylight settings and one super bright setting for use with weapon lights or in very bright lighting conditions. The battery will last 2.5 years with continuous use on the dot reticle, setting three.
