New Meprolight MEPRO O2 red dot sight
The Meprolight MEPRO O2 red dot sight is the first ever, multi-pattern reticle Mil-Spec reflex gunsight that enables the user to switch between aiming patterns quickly and easily for all tactical scenarios and in any weather and light condition
The Israeli Meprolight company – a member of the SK Group and a leading manufacturer of electro-optical systems, thermal and night vision equipment, and self-illuminated sights for military, law enforcement and civilian applications – introduces the MEPRO O2 red dot sight, a true breakthrough in tactical optics.
Until today, selectable-reticle red dot sights were mostly confined to the MIL-SIM and recreational shooting markets. The MEPRO O2 is the first mil-spec reflex sight to feature a 5-segment reticle which allows to pre-set numerous aiming patterns – four available: Dot, Bullseye, 200m and 300m available – to all tactical scenarios and different ammunition (e.g, quick transition between reticles when moving from .300 BLK subsonic to supersonic loads).
Law enforcement, military and homeland security users will benefit from advanced features such as small dimensions (< 73 x 56 x 68 mm), sturdy construction, light weight (approx. 280g), and a built-in light sensor and automatic brightness control system enabling clear visibility of the dot or reticle in any lighting conditions through the 25x20mm display window – a significant advantage for accurate firing.
The dot, or reticle, is adjustable for brightness in eight daylight use modes and four NVG-compatible modes; red-light or green-light illumination is also selectable. A set of protected dials provide 0.5 MOA (1.4 MRAD) clicks for adjustment in both windage and elevation.
The MEPRO O2 sight also features non-reflective optics, without light signature toward the target for enhanced force protection; a combination of an integral motion sensor and configurable sleep time of 4-8 hours, saving power for extended operation with a single CR123 battery; an improved, rugged MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny interface for mounting, and a fenced three-button control keypad, protected against accidental activation.
«The MEPRO O2 sight is an innovative addition to Meprolight's ever-growing range of small-arms aiming solutions,» says Benny Kokia, VP Sales & Marketing at Meprolight.
«For the first time, the user can now choose an optimal reticle from four pre-set aiming patterns. Our goal in developing this new sight was to provide armed forces with a significant tactical advantage, through capabilities that deliver mission flexibility and target precision, along with extended operation time.»
«Our advanced technologies serve customers across the defense, law enforcement and HLS markets,» says Ronen Hamudot, Corporate VP Marketing & Sales at the SK Group.
«We are proud of our ability to apply our solutions to their evolving needs, consistent with our vision of always staying ahead, and providing customers with the exact solution they need to meet new challenges that arise.»
The Meprolight MEPRO O2 is available in black and flat dark earth versions, and at this time it is being advertised only towards professional users (MIL/LE/HLS). Civilian customers will need to wait for further announcements concerning potential commercial availability and pricing in the future.
