Meprolight Limited announced on October 26, 2023, the sale of tens of thousands of its MEPRO MOR sights to a South American country.
The MEPRO MOR sights effectively address three distinct needs within a single, sophisticated product, functioning as a battery-free passive reflector sight, a visible pointer, and an invisible IR pointer. Consequently, this advanced solution yields substantial cost savings, enveloping operational and maintenance expenses that would otherwise be incurred by deploying three separate sights. Additionally, the MEPRO MOR sights enhances mission flexibility, further elevating its utility and adaptability.
The sight’s battery-free reticle system enables accurate, fast, and instinctive firing at all times without the need to power the sight; even if the sight is switched 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 MOR sight is 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 sight features a unique simultaneous zeroing mechanism for all its aiming devices. Zeroing is conveniently performed day or night while saving time and ammunition.
“The MEPRO MOR sight is a result of successful collaboration with the IDF and has been actively utilized by diverse forces globally, including India, for several years,” says Golan Kalimi, Meprolight senior vice-president of defense sales and marketing. “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 sight’s unwavering reliability, as it continues to garner trust from various armed forces across the world.”
