Scalarworks Announces World’s Lightest Quick-Detach Trijicon MRO Mount

SOUTH ORANGE, NJ – March 9, 2016 – Scalarworks, manufacturer of high-performance optic mounts, is pleased to introduce the Low Drag Mount™ for Trijicon MRO™ sights; the lightest quick-detach Trijicon MRO™ mount in existence – weighing only 1.17oz, including sight screws.

The LDM/MRO is a lightweight, low-profile, quick-detach optic mount that is compatible with MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rails and the Trijicon MRO™ (Miniature Rifle Optic).

Like all Scalarworks Low Drag Mounts™; the LDM/MRO has a monolithic base made of high-strength 7075-T6 Aluminum, and features our proprietary recoil-proof notched thumbscrew with ball detent. It also has the same precision telescoping clamp as our popular Aimpoint Micro mount, which ensures a repeatable zero with each installation.

The LDM/MRO is proudly made in the USA, and is available in both Absolute and Lower-Third Co-Witness height variants with a retail price of $149.

    Looks like they may have a PRO mount in the works.

    Super awesome. I’m about to order a T2 package from Scalar. I want to love the MRO but the one I tried had a bad fisheye effect. Anyone know if that has been resolved? Either way I look forward to getting my hands on some Scalar mount goodness.

      Trijicon just cant seem to get small, red-dot, optics right. I haven’t handled the MRO yet, but I did shoot with once the abomination that came before it. The over-priced and lackluster SRS. Their ACOGs are awesome, unless it’s the versions where your eye-relief is like the distance of the width of a hair.

      I have watched a few review video’s on them where the reviewers mentioned that the early version MRO’s had slight magnification… 1.25 but they say that those bugs are worked out and the one the reviewer was using was 1 to 1. I haven’t purchased an MRO yet but plan to in a few more months.

      Have these new mounts been put through any type of torture test?
