Eurosatory 2016: The MEPRO MOR sight was selected in an open tender that includes ongoing maintenance and quick delivery. This win was achieved as the company completes deliveries to the IDF of a previous order for thousands of MEPRO M5/RDS PRO Red Dot Sights
June 7, 2016 – Meprolight – a leading manufacturer of electro-optical systems, thermal and night vision equipment, and self-illuminated sights for military, law enforcement and civilian applications – will supply thousands of MEPRO MOR reflex sights to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). The MEPRO MOR was selected in a tender that includes ongoing maintenance and quick delivery. This win was achieved as the company completes deliveries to the IDF of a previous order for thousands of MEPRO M5/RDS PRO Red Dot Sights.
According to Benny Kokia, Vice President, Sales & Marketing at Meprolight, “We are proud of winning this tender. The sight was selected by the IDF in an open tender following in-depth testing and rigorous trials. According to the army’s demands, we were required to set up a rapid delivery schedule for the sights, and to quickly establish an effective and efficient maintenance system appropriate for the Israeli army – an active army – and sufficient to ensure the proper ongoing functioning of its systems.”
The MEPRO MOR is a compact, rugged, multi-purpose, multi-activated red dot reflex sight with integrated laser pointers. Designed for quick, instinctive, accurate shooting, it has a 30mm diameter lens, ensuring rapid target acquisition with either one or both eyes open, and quick transition between long-range and close-quarter encounters. MEPRO MOR’s large field of view enables effective operation in all weather, temperature, and light conditions. The passive self-illuminated system provides integrated day/night operation, LED for extra bright modes, two laser pointers – visible and IR, and multiple mounting options. The sight is suited for use with 5.56 mm caliber light weapons and 7.62 mm caliber light machine guns.
Kokia concludes, “This win for the MEPRO MOR joins additional orders from the IDF for thousands of units of other Meprolight sights, including day/night sights such as MEPRO M21, MEPRO M5/RDS PRO, MEPRO MX3 Magnifier , MEPRO GLS Grenade Launcher sight, and thousands of MEPRO LIOR Sniper Night Vision sights.”
