What customers say about "Key Specs"
Trijicon MRO (MRO-C-2200005) with Full Co-Witness Mount
  • The front lens coating seems to block out the sun glare pretty well. Not sure how much better it is with the Anti reflective lens cover.
  • Full mount is compatible with my Troy Front and Rear sights. Doesn't obstruct the iron sights.
  • This optic has nice adjustment turrets that don't require removing of any caps to operate. MOA adjustments are done in solid clicks. Large and well marked brightness adjustment that is in the shooter's line of sight for fast adjustment.
  • The mount is alright but don't skimp. Get a quality QDS mount.
  • Doesn't come with an anti-reflective lens cover (Honeycomb) for the front lens.
  • Doesn't come with any covers for both the front and rear lens.
AimPoint PRO (12841) Patrol Rifle Optic
  • Very nice product i love it. Reticle is sharp and crisp.
  • Retains zero even if you remove it from your rifle thanks to the tension knob.
  • Great red dot optic. Took it to the range last weekend and got it sighted in. Performed extremely well and was able to get it on bulls-eye in no time with a laser bore sight. Very good clarity on the glass with a slight blue tint.
  • Excellent red dot... Adjustable reticle (dimmable), which makes it night vision (NV) compatible.
  • I think the reticle is not as crisp as my Eotech, and the first few settings seems useless (invisible to my eye anyway).

What customers say about "Features"
Trijicon MRO (MRO-C-2200005) with Full Co-Witness Mount
  • Variable adjustments that easy to use. Big Knob hefty knob for selecting your brightness setting.
  • Elevation and windage dials have an audible and physical click with each turn. Use to with a screw driver, coin, or your fingernail.
  • The MRO has a slightly larger "tunnel" than the H1/T1/T2 and Holosun optics. This means arguably faster target acquisition and better situational awareness with both eyes open while shooting.
  • Waterproof to 100 meters (yup, 100 meters) and temperature rated to -60 to +160F. So you can freeze it in a block of ice, thaw it out and it should still be working.
  • Parallax. This optic is touted as being "parallax free". In my experience there is parallax. It is least noticeable around 50 yards and is most noticeable at very short distances of 5-10 meters. Which is slightly unfortunate since this optic is a clear choice for CQB applications.
  • If you intentionally shift your eye out of the focal plane of the scope (trying to look slightly askew through it) you will see a bit of red tint at the edges.
AimPoint PRO (12841) Patrol Rifle Optic
  • The included Aimpoint mount is perfect height to cowitness the magpul sights.
  • The brightest setting seems a bit larger than 2 moa and creates a red halo around the outer edge of the optic. I think two clicks down from full bright provides my most desirable sight picture. I'm extremely happy with this purchase.
  • The lowest settings can really be fine tuned for use with NV, and the 4 upper setting should get you through most lighting situations. It's an awesome value.
  • Maintained zero after being bounced around a bit, without breathing hard. Very rugged, positive feel. Simple and very positive picatinny mount, and tethered covers for windage/elevation adjustment.
  • Rear cap lens was scratched when I received the product.
  • Tension knob for the mount catches on my chest rig sporadically (the knob is a bit bulky).

What customers say about "Power"
Trijicon MRO (MRO-C-2200005) with Full Co-Witness Mount
  • Battery already included and came pre-installed already inside the optic.
  • This optic is rated to run for 5 years of continuous operation at brightness level '3' on a single battery. Awesome.
  • Great product good field of view battery life is outstanding..
  • Construction is robust and battery life seems to be as good as advertised so far.
  • They said the battery life isn't as long as an Aimpoint, but who is really going to have their red dot continually on that long?
AimPoint PRO (12841) Patrol Rifle Optic
  • Battery life is great. Have had it constantly "on" for months now.
  • The unit seems well made, solid, and I like the long battery life.
  • I have left this on for almost 2 years straight, and the battery is still going strong.
  • Battery apparently lasts for years, even w/ the optic left on (although, I'd probably swap it out every other year just because I'm anal about that).
