Default BUSTED MRO

I was changing the battery on my MRO and my jar head fingers broke a few connection points.. GREAT optic in my opinion, horrible design with the battery connection..

What the best way to go about fixing this?
Should I call trijicon? I love trijicon and I would love to have an ACOG RCO like I had in the Corps, but I can't afford one, so I got an mro, just wish I couldn't break it so easily :/

If you think that's bad check out the battery compartment on a Fast Fire III. You can break it before you get to use it.

I second this. I've tried out the MRO and while I like it, the amount of people having issues with just changing a battery is an unacceptable design flaw IMO.

Look for a used Aimpoint PRO on AR15.com Equipment exchange or M4carbine.net and be done with it. I picked up another LNIB Pro two weeks ago off AR15.com for $315 shipped and insured, and it came with Aimpoint's outer rubber cover, an SKD camo aimpoint cover, spare batteries, and an extra set of clear lens covers.

I'm running two and they are fine, just saying you have to be real careful installing or replacing the batteries. RMR's are tougher as far as battery compartment contact design.

MRO's... something that costs that much and doesn't come with a mount or cover should at least be tough.

Look at Aimpoint. Should you have to pay $750 for decent battery compartment? Hahah. I don't think so.

I've had the MRO it's a cool optic but the issue is in low light try to change that battery you run the risk of f**king it up. Not to mention if your life depended on that sight the 750 for a T2 seems a lot more worth it.
