SHOT Show 17 – Trijicon

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.

    I checked the website, and maybe I missed it, I apologize if so. But is there an ETA on the HD XR sights? Thanks

    On the HD XR it looks like the rear is the same as the regular HD. Any word on if they’ll offer just the front sight?

    • Bill says:

      Good question. I have the standard HDs and my only complaint is the front sight width is so much wider than the width of a head at 50 yards plus. Torso shots, no problem, head shots, 3 or 4 out of 5 hits (for me, using Glock G19 and 115gr 9mm).

    • H says:

      I asked and they said initially, no. Only as a set. I hope they sell the front sight by itself in the future. The rear is same as HD as far as I can tell.

    If you already own an MRO, will you be able to purchase the ARD and lens caps to upgrade the first version? Basically, is the late gen MRO compatible with new parts?

    I’m loving the new pistol sights. Anyone know the thought process behind the U notch, though? Seems more intuitive to line up a square post in a square notch.
