The Aimpoint Micro T-1 is an excellent choice for a patrol rifle or shotgun due to its ruggedness, clear optics and features. Aimpoint offers the Micro T-1 with either a 2- or 4-MOA dot to match your needs. The integral Picatinny rail base allows for easy installation onto a long gun. With the recoil-absorbing mount, the sight weighs less than 4 ounces, yet it is highly impact resistant and submersible to 25 meters. It has eight daytime settings and four night-vision-compatible settings. It offers 50,000 hours of continuous use.
Trijicon MRO: The MRO (Miniature Rifle Optic) from Trijicon is a red-dot sight with a large objective lens and a shortened optical length, which nearly eliminates the “tunnel vision” encountered with tube-style red dots. The MRO also features an illuminated 2-MOA dot for fast target acquisitions from CQB distances out to extended ranges. It is powered by a single CR2032 battery that will last up to five years. The MRO is also housed in a tough aluminum body for hard use.
To many, the Aimpoint Micro T-1 is the standard by which other red-dot optics are judged. The Micro T-1’s reputation has grown each year since its introduction in 2007. However, there is a newcomer that has generated a lot of buzz in the last two years: The Trijicon MRO.
