ADS Federal Range Day – Trijicon RMR Type 2 Battery Compartment Update

Friday, June 9th, 2017

Earlier this week, Trijicon released the RMR Type 2 which has a variety of new features including a button lockout mode as well as a battery conservation mode which auto adjusts to ambient lighting conditions (sleep mode) after 16.5 hours of inactivity. Additionally, there are eight intensity settings, including two night vision and one super bright setting. The CR2032 battery will last for four years on brightness setting four, or for five years in dark storage. And yes, it uses the same currently available mounting solutions.

But to users the biggest improvement is in the battery case. In this SSD exclusive you can see the new battery compartment for the CR 2032 battery. In addition to additional contacts, they’ve also incorporated a rubber gasket to mitigate shock to the battery while firing.

MRO Patrol


So, how did Trijicon update the MRO with the new Patrol model? The major change for the Patrol is Trijicon added internal threading to the housing around the objective lens which allows users to mount a kill flash/Anti-Reflection Device and/or Objective Cover to the MRO, and they included an ocular lens cover. Trijicon also now offers a co-witness mount with a one-handed quick detach for the MRO.




The Machine Gun Reflex sight is designed for medium and heavy machine guns, providing a wide 3″ x 2″ view window and 3 MOA/35 MOA reticle to increase probability of first-round hits. The MRGRS is made of 7075-T6 aluminum, is waterproof to 2m, and is powered by a single CR123A battery which can provide over 1000 hours of continuous use on setting 6 of 7 at 70F. The MGRS also has a 3x companion magnifier called, appropriately enough, the MGRS MAG, which interfaces directly onto the MGRS body.


HD XR Night Sights


Designed for a variety of contemporary pistol models, the HD XR Night Sights consist of a “U” notch rear with tritium lamps, and a front post with yellow or orange outline and tritium lamp. The front post on the HD XR sights is slimmer than the standard HD sights, promoting a larger field of view for improved target identification and engagement at longer distances. The steep hooked front surface of the rear notch is optimized for one-handed slide manipulation.


AUSA – Trijicon Machine Gun Reflex Sight

Monday, October 3rd, 2016

The Trijicon Machine Gun Reflex Sight has been popping up out there for awhile, but it’s now officially released at AUSA. Think of it as an RMR on steroids.

At 5.22″ tall, 8.78″ long and 4.17″ wide this isn’t some tiny reflex sight. It is 66.9 oz with battery and mount.  The glass is 2″ x 3″ and incorprates a 35 MOA segmented circle around a 3 MOA dot reticle. It’s uses a single CR123A, made from 7075-T6 Aluminum and waterproof to 6.6′.

The MGRS offers ranging knobs for the M2 and M240 which can be easily swapped out. For adjustment there is 100 MOA of azimuth and elevation. They are suggesting customers use the AN/PAS-13 mount.

Additionally, they’ve integrated a mounting option for a 3x magnifier into the housing. The magnifier is articulating and can be swung in and out of battery. There are no buttons to push or levers to pull. The magnifier locks into place and it takes a good bit of force to move it from one position to another. It can be mounted to the side Picatinny Rail mounting point. The MGRs sports three of these Pic rail mounting points.

Made in USA!
