The sight’s battery-free reticle system enables accurate, fast, and instinctive firing at all times without the need to turn the sight ON; even if the sight is switched to OFF or has no batteries, its light-collecting fiber- optic and a tritium capsule ensure full day and night reticle availability.

Developed based on IDF requirements, the MEPRO sights has been designed with a 30mm diameter lens to ensure easy and rapid target acquisition with both eyes open; it effectively supports instinctive close-range firing in urban and CQB conditions, as well as shooting at longer distances in open- terrain operations, while under harsh environmental conditions and combat stress.

The MEPRO MOR sights features a unique simultaneous zeroing mechanism for all its aiming devices; zeroing can be conveniently performed day or night while saving time and ammunition.

Golan Kalimi ,S.V.P. Sales & Marketing – Defense – stated: “The MEPRO MOR sights is a result of successful collaboration with the IDF and has been actively utilized by diverse forces globally, including India, for several years. In this vast country, the system’s ability to endure challenging conditions, such as extreme heat and humidity, and support users in remote locations holds tremendous significance. We take immense pride in its continued operational deployment by the IDF, where it has consistently demonstrated outstanding performance in all environmental conditions. The recently secured contract with the South American state serves as further validation of the MEPRO MOR sights unwavering reliability, as it continues to garner trust from various armed forces across the world.”

Brinyte – Finding a Groundbreaking Hunting Light for Your Shotgun

Thursday, August 31st, 2023

Introducing the Brinyte T28 Hunting Light ,3-in-1 Center Axis Rotational Color LED module with LED Position Detent Lock. To put it simply, you can effortlessly choose any of the 3 colors (such as Red, Green, or White) by gently turning a knob. Your selected LED color will then securely stay aligned along the central axis of the light body and the spherical lens.

Why is the ‘center axis’ such a crucial factor, you might ponder? Well, firstly, if the LED isn’t precisely aligned along the central axis of the spherical lens, it won’t achieve its utmost potential in terms of light output (measured in LUX). Depending on how far off-center the LED is, it could also create anomalies or distortions in the light beam, which might impact your field of view when peering through a scope. Nevertheless, the primary rationale for having selectable and repeatable center axis alignment comes into play when you mount your light onto your scope. When dealing with a conventional, single-colored LED that’s centered within the light, you’d adjust the windage and elevation so that the light sits at the center of the scope’s field of view (and consequently aligns with your crosshair).

Princeton Tec Introduces New Addition to Switch Product Line

Thursday, August 24th, 2023

Pennsauken, NJ  – Founded in 1975, Princeton Tec has been a leader in the lighting and outdoor space, providing trusted illumination products to everyone from the outdoor enthusiast to the world’s most elite special forces.  Today, nearly 50 years later, Princeton Tec is excited to announce the newest addition to the fan-favorite MPLS (Modular Personal Lighting System) family, with the Switch RGB.

For those requiring special light, the Switch RGB is feature-rich, extremely lightweight, and offers unmatched versatility. Now equipped with two light models: IR + RGB or White + RGB Ultrabright LEDs, users can now determine which version best matches their specific needs. The White+ RGB version starts in the users’ selected color LED, with low or high, and then the user presses and holds the button to get to the White LED. 

The RGB is a single LED, where users can program which colored LED light will default to when colored LED mode is selected. The IR version starts in IR mode, and users press and hold to get into the color mode. There are two levels of intensity of IR light, and only one intensity level of the colored light (high).

Designed to mount to various helmet rail systems, with the versatility of the MPLS mounting options, the Switch RGB MPLS can be secured to virtually any kit configuration.  Smart and tough, the lights feature the flexi-neck design, allowing the user to direct light where it’s need, regardless of the angle of the point of origin. The flex boom and housing design feature an improved design to make the Switch even more durable. With ease-of-use was kept top-of-mind, the white mode requires a two-second button press to be turned on to avoid accidental activation. Users can set and change the order in which the colored LED’s appear upon activation, for a truly customized performance.

“Princeton Tec provides the best lighting solutions, tailored to our customers’ needs,” said Princeton Tec Vice President, Dave Cozzone.  “As an American manufacturer, we take pride in delivering top-quality lighting products and meeting the needs of our war fighters who continue to put themselves in harm’s way to protect our freedoms.”
