Trijicon® Inc., Launches the New MRO™ - A Brilliant Aiming Solution™ For Red-Dot Optics
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.
Trijicon® VCOG™ 1-6x24mm Riflescope
Trijicon has combined the legendary toughness and function of its combat-proven ACOG and associated ballistic reticles with a new variable optic. The new Trijicon VCOG (Variable Combat Optical Gunsight) 1-6x24 mm meets the rigorous demands of duty or competition while giving shooters the flexibility to engage CQB targets and out to the maximum effective range of most service rifles.
Designed and built in the USA, the Trijicon VCOG is machined from a 7075-T6 aluminum forging and given a Mil Spec, hard-coat anodized finish. There is a full 90 MOA of windage and elevation adjustment available in ½in / click increments @100m to get almost any weapon system on target.
Lenses are all fully multicoated with a broadband anti-reflective coating that maximizes light transmission while meeting and beating the military’s requirements for abrasion resistance. The scope maintains a constant four inches of eye relief throughout its magnification range and an oversized and knurled adjustment knob makes finding the perfect power setting easy and fast, even with gloved hands.
Before its debut, the VCOG underwent rigorous shock and vibration testing to assure it met the standards of a Trijicon brand optic. The VCOG is waterproof to 66 feet and its illumination electronics are Mil Spec tough. Extra-thick tube walls give the VCOG a toughness advantage over its more fragile competitors. Also tested for smoothness and long-term durability, was the optic’s magnification system—the VCOG offers shooters an outstanding service life under the most rigorous conditions.
Initially, the VCOG will be offered with seven different reticle choices, all of which are located in the first focal plane allowing the ballistic reticle to be used at any magnification. The segmented circle reticle with a centered crosshair can be matched with 175-grain 7.62, 55- and 77-grain 5.56, or 115-grain supersonic 300 BLK loads. The popular horseshoe/dot reticle is available in each of the 5.56 and 7.62 offerings.
The red illuminated reticle is powered by a common AA battery, accessible underneath the objective, delivering 700 continuous hours of runtime at setting 4 of 6 with a lithium battery. A rheostat is located on the main tube, opposite the windage turret, and has an off position between each of its six brightness settings. An integral mount securely pairs the optic with any M1913 Picatinny rail and its height is perfect for flattop M-16, M4, AR-15 and SR-25/AR-10-style rifles. Two slotted screws secure the optic to the rail. At just 10 inches, the VCOG leaves plenty of rail space ahead of the objective for night vision or thermal intensifiers.
Trijicon’s ACOG and ballistic reticles are the most battle-proven, magnified-optic systems in the world. The new 1-6x24 mm VCOG adds tremendous flexibility into the mix while maintaining Trijicon’s high standards of ruggedness. With one optic, operators, law enforcement officers and competitors can engage CQB-distance targets at 1X or roll up to 6X and engage long-distance targets with confidence and precision.
