    If you are looking for the low MRO mount this is the only one I am aware of:

    https://www.botach.com/battle-steel-...-trijicon-mro/

    Works well on my SP5k. I'll warn you now though, they sent me the same mount but for the Aimpoint TWICE before I received the correct MRO mount. Your results may vary.

    Thanks all. I think I'm going to start out with an ultra-lo profile mount, and go to my local gun store/range and see what looks best between the Aimpoint, MRO, SRO, etc.

    I have tried a few different configurations, some with red dots and some more conventional. If you are trying to design something for serous application please dis regard my remarks

    First I think that the standard sights on a MP-5 style weapon are a superior configuration. I have added a variety of B&T rails to my firearms. I have tried a number of different red dot sights like the Trijicon MRO, Lucid optic with a 2x magnifier.

    After spending an excessive amount on various configurations I have found what works best for me. A B&T low rail with a Vortex Strikeeagle 1-8x optic. It can be used as a 1x for close in work, but find something in the 4-8x to be superior for targets from 25 to 50 yds.

    I can hand the configured firearm to firearm novices that have no problem holding a 2” hit circle at 50 yds standing unsupported. None of the previous configurations provided nearly the same results.

    Should a scope be used on a SBR, I say yes with excellent results. Why a Strikeeagle and not a more expensive optic? I did not have one or have one available for testing.

    YMMV
