Trijicon is usually the first name to come to mind when thinking about firearm optics and sights.
The manufacturer has made another massive leap in the science of red dot sights with its all new Miniature Rifle Optic or MRO.

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 perfectly 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. It also gets an incredible five years of continuous use on a single 2032 battery.
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 -60F to +160F. 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. A compact and rugged aiming solution, perfect for real-world operators who need to get the job done-fast and accurately.
