Trijicon recently unveiled a new series of quick-release mounts for two of its popular reflex sights.
The new mounts are designed for the company's RMR and MRO line of reflex sights, according to a Dec. 6 Trijicon press release that describes how users can rapidly attach and remove the mounts single-handedly.
The eight new models are available in low, full co-witness, and lower 1/3 co-witness heights.
Machined from lightweight 7075 T6-Aluminum and tested to withstand MIL-Standard requirements, the mounts are designed to be as tough as the optics themselves, according to the release.
The RMR, or Ruggedized Miniature Reflex, is a red-dot sight boasting a patented shape designed to absorb and divert impacts away from the lens. Available in LED, adjustable LED, or Dual Illuminated models, the RMR provides dot sizes ranging from 1 MOA to 13 MOA, according to a Dec. 11 post on Recoilweb.com.
The MRO, or Miniature Rifle Optic, presents a sealed miniature reflex sight design for use on rifles, carbines and shotguns. The MRO is equipped with fun features such as ambidextrous brightness controls, an advanced lens coating, and a waterproof construction, according to Recoilweb.com.
The new Quick Release mounts are compatible with the popular Picatinny rail platform, and low mount options are also available for Weaver-style bases, according to the Trijicon release.
Unique 45-degree offset models also allow users to mount an RMR or MRO on either the left- or right-hand side of the firearm, according to the release. Slim enough to fit under most magnified optics, the 45-degree offset is ideal for 3-Gun, law enforcement and hunting applications.
