At IWA 2017, Nuremberg, Germany, 3-6 March 2017, at the Prima Armi booth #7A-512, Meprolight (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 a unique red dot micro sight with quick release and backup night sights: The MEPRO MicroRDS is designed for pistols, rifles, and shotguns.
The company is expanding its operations in the European civilian market with its MEPRO MicroRDS, MEPRO RDS Red Dot Sight, and MEPRO FT BULLSEYE self-illuminated pistol sight.
“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," according to Benny Kokia, Meprolight Vice President Marketing & Sales. "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.
“The European civilian market is an important market for us," Kokia continued. "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 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.
