SHOT Show 2016: Premiers by MEPROLIGHT

MEPORLIGHT brought a whole range of premiers to Las Vegas.
The MEPRO M5 Red-Dot Sight is an energy-efficient, compact sight, that provides thousands of operating hours while utilizing a single “AA” commercial battery (moving sensors shut the system down after 20 minutes of no use, but a first move brings it back). Featuring battle-proven LED technology and rugged MIL-STD design, the sight assures reliability under the harshest environmental conditions. With its large display window and clearly-defined Red-Dot, the MEPRO M5 ensures rapid target acquisition with both eyes open and a big field-of-view. Offering four easily switchable reticle brightness intensities, the MEPRO M5 fits every tactical scenario, even against the sun or bright light. To facilitate night operations and long-range target engagement the MEPRO M5 is compatible with GEN II and GEN III NVGs as well as with Magnifying Scopes (if they have 3x magnification). Its human-engineering allows positioning of NVGs and Magnifiers close to the sight’s optics with no decrease in the field-of-view and without compromising convenient switch
operation. It has a 1x magnification and weight is under 300 gr. The IDF ordered some ten thousands of it.

The MEPRO X4 is a fixed x4 magnification, compact and lightweight, telescopic day sight. Utilizing a quick release Picatinny adaptor, this MIL-STD sight provides five different brightness settings for efficient target acquisition in any tactical situation. Energy efficient, the sight operates on a single battery and features auto shut-off after one hour. The MEPRO X4 is an extremely robust and easy-to-use tool, ideal for modern combat operation. It was improved with a better eyeguard and better 42 mm eye relief.
Meprolight also launched two new families of Tritium night sights for pistols. Both will be available during Q1/2015 (US market from January), and will contribute to agile and precision shooting. According to Meprolight the new MEPRO FT Family of Fiber and Tritium are the brightest day-and-night sights for pistols on the market. They come as a One-Dot and Two-Dot Sight, or Circle Dot Sight that only requires rear sight. The FT sights can also be used as a backup for the Mepro X4 sight. Also there is no change of the holster needed, because they are so small, they fit everywhere. With the One-Dot and Circle-Dot Sight you can shoot with both eyes open.
