Head To Head: Aimpoint T2 & Trijicon MRO
Aimpoint T2: The lenses used here are fully multi-coated with different sorts of chemicals and materials. It makes the lens brighter and scratch resistant. On top of that you got a glass etched reticle that has adjustable brightness. It even supports night vision setting. You can take that setting up a notch by using an external NVD. All in all, this sight has some amazing features that most other sights don’t have.
Trijicon MRO: When Trijicon first introduced MRO, they made sure it makes a name for it. look at it now, roaring high in the sky of shooters. MRO is a well-made, well-balanced, and good sight to work with. The lenses here are fully multi-coated for your convenience. The housing is also durable and rugged.
Both of these are absolute class. They are on their leagues of their own. There is no wrong choice when it comes to quality.
Aimpoint T2: Aimpoint used high quality forged aluminum to make the body of T2. The housing of the sight is also water and shock proof. As water and moisture can’t go inside the sight, it is also fog proof. Fog is a terrible enemy when it comes to shooting in rainy season or winter. Aimpoint will also provide you with excellent warranty service that may even outlast your sight all together.
Trijicon MRO: Trijicon used 7075 T6 forged aluminum for the construction of this sight. Which does make it more durable than Aimpoint T2 by slightly. It’s also much more durable than many other scopes and sight in the similar price range.
MRO is more well built with better housing and sealings. Both of them are water and fog proof. They are also shock proof. They support almost any mounting system you throw them to. Honestly, either is good.
Aimpoint T2: 100 yards shooting is all about aim and accuracy. The point of a sight is to help you get better at those. When you plug in and calibrate the T2, all you will do is hit the bullseye. It’s scarily accurate in what it does. On top of that, it does with such elegance and beauty, it’s a sight to behold. Okay, I need to tone down on the puns a bit.
What I am trying to say is, the performance of this sight is absolutely mind blowing. The brightness is on point. Even in direct sun, the MOA red dot reticle is clearly visible.
Trijicon MRO: Trijicon always improves their sight as time passes. MRO has gone through several upgrade after release as well. Through each revision MRO has become one of the best red dot sights under $1000 mark. It’s kind of hard to believe when you think just how well it performs in controlled and natural environment.
Of course, right gun and calibration is an important part of the process. But to have a sight that won’t let you down in any kind of weather is nothing less than a blessing.
So in term of performance; we can say that these two are best at their own. So, whichever you take! you won’t regret.
Aimpoint T2: The dimension of T2 is 79 x 46 x 48 mm respectively. It looks and is small for a reflex sight. You can easily pair this with a magnifier or an NVD. Both will improve your aim game drastically. Height of T2 impressed me a lot. It’s not a tall sight by any means.
Trijicon MRO: The dimension of MRO is 104.14mm x 45.72mm x 50.8mm. All in all, it’s a bigger sight in almost every aspect. Size is an important conversation to have while buying a reflex sight. As you might want to pair up a magnifier or NVD down the line.
MRO is certainly bigger. The difference is noticeable, but I don’t think it’s big enough to make you change decision.
Aimpoint T2: As you can see in the specification chart, the weight of T2 is around 130grams. T2 is lighter than MRO by more than 10grams. While 10 grams on a big gun won’t make the world of difference, it can still make noticeable difference on a small gun. Still, 130grams for a reflex sight is quite light.
Trijicon MRO: Weighing at 144.5 grams, MRO is the certified chonker here today. The weight difference is noticeable when you hold them both together in different hand. 14.5 grams of difference won’t be the deal breaker for a lot, but it still might.
If you are someone who requires the lightest sight to perform well, then the obvious choice is T2.

It will all come down to what do you want from your sight? Do you want it to be lighter and a bit smaller? Then go for T2. Are you okay with a bit bigger and heavier sight but with more durable construction? Go for MRO.
