Alpine Innovations – ScopeSlicker NX

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

LEHI UT, January 22nd, 2018 – ScopeSlicker NX is the last scope cover you’ll ever need. Made by Alpine Innovations, ScopeSlicker NX employs a simple yet effective method to keep it from falling off. While other scope covers end up missing in the field, ScopeSlicker NX not only stays where you put it, but offers innovative cleaning features found on no other scope cover.

ScopeSlicker NX is designed with 2 retaining bands that fit under the optic to keep it secure on top of the optics while scoping. When you need to cover your optics, flip both ends of the scope cover down, and your ScopeSlicker stays protected from the elements.

“We knew we could improve upon what is on the market,” says Darren Jones, CEO and designer of Alpine’s products. “We’ve heard that hunters were losing their scope covers while hunting in thick terrain. The last thing you want to do is damage or scratch your expensive optics. Now you no longer have to keep buying scope covers that fall off while you hunt. ”

The .5mm neoprene design includes two handy finger pocket microfiber cleaning cloths, one on each end of the scope cover, to keep your optics free from smudges and dust. The ScopeSlicker NX also has the ability to fit a wider range of the most commonly used scope sizes, ranging from 12″ to 17″ in the regular size, to 14″ to 20″ in the large size. ScopeSlicker NX’s flexible fit even accommodates scopes with high turrets, so it’s sure to fit your preferred optic.

Be sure to see the new ScopeSlicker NX available now at and is available in many major retailers Spring of 2018

Meprolight Launches a Unique Multi-Spectral Weapon Sight At Milipol

Combining Uncooled Thermal Channel with Digital Day/Night Camera, MEPRO NYX-200 improves soldier’s situational awareness and allows rapid target acquisition in any lighting conditions and any environment


Milipol 2017, Paris, France, November 21-24, Stand G-025

November 16, 2017. Meprolight Ltd. – a member of the SK Group and a leading manufacturer of electro-optical systems, thermal and night vision equipment, self-illuminated sights, and Laser Range Finder systems for military, law enforcement and civil applications – launches the unique MEPRO NYX-200 multi-spectral weapon sight and hand-held device, combining an uncooled thermal channel with a sensitive high-resolution digital day/night camera, at Milipol 2017. This sight improves the soldier’s situational awareness, and allows rapid target acquisition in any lighting conditions and in any environment.

According to Assaf Shimron, CEO of Meprolight, “Modern battlefield challenges force soldiers to carry an expanding array of systems, sensors, and equipment. The weight of this equipment and the need to operate a variety of devices reduces mission effectiveness and may compromise soldier safety. To solve these issues and improve the modern soldier’s operation, we developed the MEPRO NYX-200.”


“The MEPRO NYX-200 is a lightweight, all-in-one weapon sight that includes a thermal imaging channel and day/night sensitive camera, integrated DVR and IR pointer,” Mr. Shimron continued. “This solution replaces at least four (4) different systems currently carried by the average soldier. It allows ongoing work, 24/7, in all environments and weather conditions – meeting the demands of the modern battlefield and increasing mission effectiveness.”

The MEPRO NYX-200 is available in two configurations: thermal channel with digital night camera or thermal channel with digital day camera. The combination of thermal channel and digital night camera (DNC) enables enhanced situational awareness with maximum view at any level of darkness in any environment. The thermal channel can be used in total darkness and through fog, camouflage, etc. The sight’s digital night vision is optimized for Close Quarters Battle (CQB), face recognition, and more.

The combination of thermal channel and digital day camera (DDC) enables the soldiers to use the sight for both day and night operation, eliminating the need to change sights/devices between day and night, and allowing soldiers to move between dark and light environments, such as entering dark places also during daytime.

Long operation time based on four (4) commercially available batteries enables soldiers to complete missions without power failure. The integrated IR pointer supports various tactical scenarios including CQB and covert night operations. Using integrated DVR enables image capture and video recording and transmitting for mission debriefing. MEPRO NYX-200 was designed and fabricated to the most stringent military standards, including MIL-810, to assure years of reliable operation under all field and environmental conditions.
