Trijicon just launched its new Miniature Rifle Optic or MRO – a red-dot sight that’s designed to significantly reduce the “tunnel vision” effect.
“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,” according to a August 13 press release. “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. A single 2032 lithium battery will last for 5 years of continuous use, the release states.
Half-minute adjustments with 70 MOA total travel allow for zeroing in most any configuration on a variety of platforms, according to the release.
It requires no special tools —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, according to the release.
“Trijicon engineers built—and tested—the MRO to operate in temperatures ranging from -60F to +160F,” according to the release. “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 retails for $579 without mount; $629 with mount.
