Trijicon has introduced the new Miniature Rifle Optic (MRO), an ultra-compact red-dot sight designed to add a whole lot of capability to your firearm with very little added weight or bulk. Light and rugged, the Trijicon MRO mounts easily, zeros quickly and adapts to almost any shooting scenario.
With its large objective lens and shortened optical length, the MRO virtually eliminates the “tunnel vision” or tube-effect common to so many red dot sights. The 2-MOA dot is bright and crisp, and is sized for fast target acquisition at CQB distance out to extended ranges.
The MRO features eight brightness settings, including two that are night vision compatible, plus one extremely bright setting for use with lights or in very bright outdoor conditions. And, it gets an amazing five years of continuous use on a single CR2032 battery (when left in the "3" setting).
Half-minute adjustments with 70-MOA-total travel allow for zeroing in most any configuration on a variety of platforms. What’s more, no special tools are required—windage and elevation adjustments can be made even with the rim of a 5.56mm casing. The brightness control atop is ambidextrous, so your shooting hand need not leave the fire control area. The MRO is parallax free, with infinite eye relief for quick and accurate engagement no matter your position.
Trijicon engineers built—and tested—the MRO to operate in temperatures ranging from -60 degrees Fahrenheit to +160 degrees Fahrenheit. Waterproof to 100 feet, chemical and corrosion resistant, and housed in 7075-T6 Aluminum, the MRO can withstand the rigors of combat, sub-zero mornings on an ice-encrusted hunting stand or bouncing between stages during a competitive shooting event.
The MRO is available with or without a mount, and two mount heights are available: a mid-height model and a co-witness version that allows the MRO's dot to co-witness with standard AR-15 iron sights.
MSRP: $579 without mount; $629 with mount.
