Trijicon® Inc. Launches the New MRO™—A Brilliant Aiming Solution™ For Red-Dot Optics

Triangle Red Black 485

Wixom, Mich. — Trijicon® takes the science of the red dot sight to the next level with the Trijicon Miniature Rifle Optic or MRO, a red-dot sight tough enough for combat, the mean streets of law enforcement, competition shooting or hunting in the harshest of environments. Light and rugged, the Trijicon MRO mounts easily, zeros quickly and adapts to almost any shooting scenario.

MRO_45[1]

With its large objective lens and shortened optical length, the MRO virtually eliminates the “tunnel vision” or tube-effect common to so many red dot sights. The 2 MOA dot is bright and crisp, and is perfectly sized for fast target acquisition at CQB distance out to extended ranges.

The MRO features eight brightness settings, including two that are night vision compatible, plus one extremely bright setting for use with lights or in very bright outdoor conditions. And, it gets an amazing five (5) years of continuous use on a single 2032 battery!

Half-minute adjustments with 70 MOA total travel allow for zeroing in most any configuration on a variety of platforms. What’s more, no special tools are required—windage and elevation adjustments can be made even with the rim of a 5.56mm casing. The brightness control atop is ambidextrous, so your shooting hand need not leave the fire control area. The MRO is parallax free, with infinite eye relief for quick and accurate engagement no matter your position.

Trijicon engineers built—and tested—the MRO to operate in temperatures ranging from -60F to +160F. Waterproof to 100 feet, chemical and corrosion resistant, and housed in 7075-T6 Aluminum, the MRO can withstand the rigors of combat, sub-zero mornings on an ice-encrusted hunting stand or bouncing between stages during a competitive shooting event.

The MRO. A compact and rugged aiming solution, perfect for real-world operators who need to get the job done—fast and accurately.

MSRP: $579 without mount; $629 with mount.

Brenda Weatherby Brings Her Fresh Perspective and Competitive Edge to Women’s Hunting and Shooting Movement

Women of Weatherby Logo

Paso Robles, Calif.—Inspired by the Women of Weatherby™ and their passion for hunting and shooting, Brenda Weatherby, wife of Weatherby’s Chief Operating Officer, Adam Weatherby, started her own journey into firearms and hunting last year. An ultra-competitive athlete in high school and college, Brenda brings the same dedication to the shooting sports that she did to basketball, volleyball and pole vaulting, discovering that hunting and shooting are every bit as exciting and challenging as those sports.

“I have always loved to compete,” said Brenda Weatherby. “With everything I have competed in, I’ve been dedicated to the training and practice part of it.  With hunting, it’s no different.”

For Brenda, the journey began with a hunter safety course she and her daughter took together, followed by extensive practice at the shooting range.

“I didn’t really think I had any business hunting until I spent lots of time at the range,” she said. “I started going to the range alone, learning about various guns and how they worked. I found this to be really challenging and fun. It allowed me to learn at my own pace, in a very controlled environment, and gave me a lot of confidence.”

Now, with her first few hunts behind her, Brenda’s eager to go afield as much as possible, including a black tail deer hunt this fall. Her advice to other women?

“I think it comes down to confidence and the boldness to try new things without fear of failure.  For females, that could be hunting, shooting–anything they have heard people tell them that they couldn’t do.  I am a huge proponent of trying new things in a low pressure environment with people you love and those friends you’ve yet to meet. And being out in nature just tops it all off.”

Confidence. Boldness. Passion. That’s what the Women of Weatherby is all about, a sisterhood providing educational information about the shooting sports, and offering the industry’s first rifle specifically for women, designed by women. With this foundation, Women of Weatherby inspires the dreams of women at every level of hunting and shooting.

Weatherby has devoted an exclusive website to this campaign, www.WomenofWeatherby.com. Connect with it today and share the thrill of the hunt!

NBA Pink Logo

Fultondale, Ala.—Take a look around. The face of bowhunting just got prettier. Thanks largely to the fact that more and more females are picking up a bow and either following their significant other into the field or blazing their own unique trail alone. Either way, more and more ladies are discovering just how exciting bowhunting and archery really is. And that’s a good thing! The only problem is that some ladies are shooting bows designed for their male counterparts. And that’s a bad thing.

Built especially for today’s lady bow enthusiast and her smaller frame, New Breed Archery introduces the SEDUCTION. A bow that shoots as great as it looks. The SEDUCTION clocks in at 283-285 fps (26” 45 lb.) with a brace height of 5 3/8 inches and a diminutive weight of only 3.3 lbs. Combine the slightly reflexed T6061 aircraft grade aluminum machined riser with the proven Bionix 2.0 Modular Cam System for a rock-solid back wall and you have a fast, forgiving ladies bow that can certainly hold its own in a once predominately male sport.

And when it comes to appearances nothing says SEDUCTION like this bow. With its distinctive “Heart” shaped riser cutouts and pink color scheme, this bow is definitely a head turner. Additional attributes include premium Gordon Glass split limbs, custom-made premium strings and cables from String Addictions, adjustable string suppressor and BowJax grips. The SEDUCTION is proudly made in the USA and hand assembled by one person from start to finish using only the highest quality parts available. No mass-produced assembly lines.

So whether you’re looking to join your favorite male hunting partner or establish your own place in the wide-open field of bowhunting, look no further than the New Breed Archery SEDUCTION. It’s just what you need to turn heads in a crowd or put more heads on your wall. Visit your local New Breed Archery dealer and experience the SEDUCTION for yourself. No Hype, Just Hunt!
