Trijicon has announced its new Miniature Rifle Optic (MRO), but for several weeks now American Rifleman editors have been quietly testing the new red-dot sight behind the scenes and will report their results in an upcoming issue of American Rifleman.
Trijicon says the MRO, with its large objective lens and shortened optical length, is applicable for all uses: combat, law enforcement, competition shooting or hunting even in harsh environments, as it virtually eliminates the "tunnel vision" or tube-effect often associated with red dot sights.
The MRO also features eight brightness settings, including two that are night-vision compatible, and one that is ideal for use with lights or in very bright outdoor conditions. Best of all, battery life is reportedly five years. Other features include: half-minute adjustments with 70 MOA total travel; no special tools required for windage and elevation; and an ambidextrous brightness control. The MRO is parallax free, with infinite eye relief for quick and accurate engagement from any position. Built to operate in temperatures ranging from -60F to +160F, it’s also waterproof to 100 feet, chemical and corrosion resistant, and housed in 7075-T6 Aluminum.
MSRP: $579 without mount; $629 with mount.
