Milipol 17 – Meprolight

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

Although they were released earlier this year, this was the first time I had gotten my hands on Meprolight’s MicroTDS and FT Bullseye.

MicroRDS

The MicroRDS is intended to allow a shooter to attach a red dot sight to his pistol by removing the rear sight and replacing it in the dovetail with the MicroRDS mounting ramp. The MicroRDS features a QD connector and can then be attached and removed with ease.

FT Bullseye

The FT Bullseye is a rear sight assembly which once again, fits into the dovetail cut of the slide. It’s a low profile design which is intended to allow the shooter to quickly aim without using a front sight. It features a tritium self-illuminated inlay in orange or green so the aiming dot can be seen in any light condition.

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.

According to Benny Kokia, VP Marketing and Sales, “We developed the new adapter as a result of our close collaboration with Special Forces units both in Israel and overseas. The MEPRO MX3-T is equipped with a unique pull back mechanism that surpasses those of any other tactical solution available in the market. The MX3-T enables swift target acquisition, significantly improving results in the field.”

The MEPRO MX3-T is a compact, lightweight, and rugged magnifying scope with a wide Field of View – designed to accurately and economically improve the shooter’s performance. This new scope has 3x magnification to enhance the precision, range, and effectiveness of reflex sights, such as MEPRO 21 and MEPRO MOR, by extending the shooting range without re-zeroing the sights.

The MEPRO MX3-T attaches to any MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail, behind a reflex sight, and features a quick release adapter. The adapter has a low weight, quick pull back mechanism. When not in use, it is folded over to the right side and can be easily flipped back into place when the shooter needs to engage targets at longer distances. It is simple to attach, doesn’t interfere with firing, and is MIL-STD-810 qualified.

The MEPRO MicroRDS is designed for pistols, rifles, and shotguns.

According to Benny Kokia, VP Marketing & Sales, “We are pleased to expand our operations in the European shooting enthusiasts market, and to take this opportunity to introduce our new product, which is the only one of its kind in the world – the MEPRO MicroRDS. Whether on pistols or rifles, the sight delivers a Red Dot solution that enables quick and accurate shooting.”

The MEPRO MicroRDS – the latest addition to the MEPRO RDS family – is small, rugged, and energy efficient, with a clear aiming point for all light conditions, and a large display window. For pistols, it serves as the main aiming sight, offering fast target acquisition at close distances. It fits a large variety of handguns thanks to its patented quick release mounting (MEPRO MicroRDS adaptor). The adaptor allows the use of an optical sight alongside a backup tritium sight. There is no need to replace the gun’s slide or to drill holes to install the optical sight. For rifles, it serves as a backup sight for close distances, while the main sight covers medium and long distances.

Kokia continued, “The European civilian market is an important market for us. During the first stage, we’ll market a limited number of products, but the goal is to expand and to offer European customers all of our product lines. As an established market in the area of hunting and civilian shooting – we are convinced that shooting enthusiasts will appreciate the benefits of our products, which offer high quality at competitive prices.”

The company is expanding its operations in the European market with the MEPRO RDS electro-optical red dot sight and MEPRO FT BULLSEYE.

The MEPRO RDS is an energy-efficient, compact, and rugged sight that provides thousands of operating hours while utilizing a single “AA” commercial battery. With its large display window and clearly-defined red dot, the MEPRO RDS ensures rapid target acquisition with both eyes open. Offering numerous easily switchable reticle brightness intensities, the MEPRO RDS fits every hunting scenario, and is compatible with GEN II and GEN III NVGs as well as magnifying scopes. The MEPRO RDS is a civilian of the Mil Spec MEPRO M5, used by the Israel Defense Forces.

The MEPRO FT BULLSEYE is an extremely small, low profile, optical pistol sight. Similar to reflex sights, it provides the shooter with an aim point in the form of an illuminated dot and circle bullseye, enabling intuitive and fast target acquisition. The MEPRO FT BULLSEYE allows instant and accurate shooting in all lighting conditions with no batteries needed. The sight – which fits most existing holsters – needs no front sight and can be easily installed on an existing pistol dovetail.

New Reticle Options for the Meprolight M21 Combat Sight

Friday, May 20th, 2011

Meprolight’s M21 reflex sight is imported from Israel by The Mako Group. It is a self-illuminated reflex sight powered by tritium and a fiber optic collector system. While it is the standard issue combat sight for the Israeli Defense Forces, they feel it is also a great option for Law Enforcement duties. One of the biggest advantages of the M21 is that it requires no batteries and has no switches to break. This means that it can be mounted to a rifle and there is no chance of encountering a dead battery when you need it most.

In addition to the cost savings associated with batteries, there is another advantage. Mako has worked with Mepro to introduce new reticle options. The standard reticle for the US market has been the bullseye reticle, but they have now added the Triangle reticle, Open X reticle, and both 4.3 MOA and 5.5 MOA Dot reticles.

“The non-electronic Mepro M21 sight with bullseye reticle has proven immensely popular with law enforcement agencies who need a rugged sight that can withstand rough rides and extreme temperatures in the trunk of a patrol car, and is always ready for instant use without worry about dead or leaking batteries,” Addy Sandler, CEO of The Mako Group explained. “Now these agencies have the option of choosing the precise triangle and dot reticles to fit any intended use.”
