Red dot optics have steadily won over members of the hunting community in recent years, landing atop many a turkey gun and a growing number of deer rifles, among others. News from Trijicon indicates that there'll be another contender in the market very shortly in the form of the company's new Miniature Rifle Optic, or MRO.

Designed to be rugged enough to last in even the harshest of environments without adding cumbersome weight, the MRO is lightweight, easy to mount and meant to adapt to any shooting scenario. Trijicon engineers built—and tested—the MRO to operate in temperatures ranging from -60F to +160F. A large objective sense and shortened optical length allegedly eliminates the "tunnel vision" or tube-effect that many shooters experience with a red dot. The 2 MOA dot is bright and crisp, crafted with fast target acquisition in mind.

Half-minute adjustments with 70 MOA total travel allow for zeroing in most any configuration on a variety of platforms. No specialized tools are required for the job, as the windage and elevation adjustments can be made with a simple solution, like the rim of a 5.56mm casing.

The MRO features eight brightness settings, including two that are night vision compatible.

We'll have more information on the MRO—including a review—in the future. Stay tuned to AmericanHunter.org for further coverage.
