Trijicon has officially released their new MRO. This optic is one of the most exciting in recent memory if for no other reason than it is made in the USA. I have high hopes that Trijicon can make a compact red dot sight that is competitive in pricing, features, and functionality.

Wixom, Mich. – Trijicon® takes the science of the red dot sight to the next level with the Trijicon Miniature Rifle Optic or MRO™, a red-dot sight tough enough for combat, the mean streets of law enforcement, competition shooting or hunting in the harshest of environments. 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. And, it gets an amazing five (5) 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.
MSRP: $579 without mount; $629 with mount.
