“We are very proud that the IDF selected us as the sole suppliers of their next generation of combat sights, following an evaluation and testing process that resulted in a clear acknowledgement that the MEPRO M5 is the best sight in its category,” Benny Kokia, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, said in a statement
The MEPRO M5 Red-Dot Sight is an energy-efficient, compact sight that provides thousands of operating hours while utilizing a single “AA” commercial battery. Featuring battle-proven LED technology and rugged MIL-STD design, the sight assures reliability under the harshest environmental conditions.
With its large display window and clearly-defined Red Dot, the MEPRO M5 ensures rapid target acquisition with both eyes open. Offering numerous reticle brightness intensities, the MEPRO M5 suits every tactical scenario.
To facilitate night operations and long-range target engagement, the MEPRO M5 is compatible with GEN II and GEN III NVGs as well as with Magnifying Scopes. Its human engineering allows positioning of NVGs and Magnifiers close to the sight’s optics with no decrease in the field-of-view and without compromising convenient switch operation.
Note: The Meprolight MEPRO M5 Red Dot Sight that was purchased by the IDF as next generation combat sight is marketed in the US consumer market under the brand name of TRU-DOT® RDS PRO.
