Trijicon’s standard MRO is a go to for a quality red dot at an affordable price. Retailing about $380 to $430 the MRO has been well received in the current market.
Author D.S. really likes his vanilla MRO as he just wrote about the value proposition a standard MRO brings to the table.
The new HD version introduced at SHOT has some nifty new features, such as a toggle for single dot or circle dot reticle, and compatibility with a new magnifier… But at what cost?
MSRP is $919 so expect it to be a few hundos cheaper on the street, but at that price point Trijicon is still possibly charging a few hundos more than a standard MRO.
So long as they keep both models available for the two price points, I think they have a place for consumers, although multiple reticle solutions are becoming more common and at lower price points. Yes, I am talking about HOLOSUN.
We will see if the juice is the still worth the squeeze for the updated MRO-HD.
