The Trijicon Green Dot MRO

The Trijicon Green Dot MRO

The Trijicon MRO (Mini Rifle Optic) has been a popular red-dot sight for some time. The small, lightweight optic makes shooting easy for just about everyone. Just put the dot on the target and squeeze the trigger. The big news is that the MRO is now offered with a green dot.


The most notable advantage of a green electronic-dot sight is the superior contrast and visibility it provides, especially during daylight. A red dot can become diffused and disappear into the background, but the human eye detects more shades of green, so a green dot stands out. The Trijicon green-dot MRO also offers better contrast against forest, grassland, and tropical environments, which translates into faster target acquisition during bright daylight and transitional lighting conditions.

The 1X green-dot MRO sight has a 2-MOA dot and eight brightness settings. Trijicon offers a variety of mounting options, for one-third of full co-witness with iron sights.

The green-dot MRO is 2.6 inches wide by 2 inches tall, so it is very compact. The sight weighs 4.1 ounces with battery, and the CR2032 battery can stay on for a full year at the level three brightness setting. The objective lens diameter is 25mm, and the rugged body is made of 7075-T6 aluminum. The large aperture and tapered light path will appeal to competition shooters as they aid in shooting with both eyes open.


The tool-less adjustment, full ambidextrous design, and ruggedness mean that any shooter can use this sight to full advantage. Made to be used on rifles, carbines, and shotguns, the new green-dot MRO is ideal for competition shooting, hunting and plinking.
