With optics becoming more readily available and affordable over the years, firearm manufacturers have been capitalizing on the increased availability. In fact, it is almost more common for new firearms to have an optic cut than not. For this reason, companies like Meopta Sports Optics are regularly releasing pistol reflex optics such as the MeoSight IV.
The Meopta MeoSight IV
Weighing just 1.2 ounces, the MeoSight IV is the company’s smallest reflex red dot sight to date. Correspondingly, with a height of 1.22 inches, the sight maintains a low profile. Featuring aircraft-grade aluminum construction, the MeoSight IV can hold up to hard use and keep going.
Operating on a single CR 1632 3V battery, the sight has a battery life of 30,000 hours. However, an auto-off function automatically shuts the optic off after four hours of continuous use if the function button has not been touched. Likewise, the illumination feature has a manual or automatic mode. As a result, you have complete control over the five different brightness intensity levels. When it is time to change the battery, a top-loading battery compartment allows you to swap it out without removing the optic and losing zero.
The MeoSight runs a 3 MOA dot with a 120 MOA range of elevation and a 120 MOA range of windage adjustment. It is compatible with standard-size optics-ready pistol systems using the Meopta/Docter mounting plates. However, it also comes with a Picatinny rail mount, so you can mount it to a rifle for dedicated close-quarter target acquisition when coupled with a primary riflescope.
“We designed the MeoSight IV to significantly increase shooter accuracy and speed whether used in handgun competitions, for personal defense, or in law enforcement situations,” said Erik Muller, Product Specialist, Meopta Sport Optics. “This newest generation MeoSight features premium, scratch-resistant optics and a wide sight picture for such a compact sight, facilitating fast and accurate shooting on the move.”
The Meopta MeoSight IV Sight is available now with an MSRP of $399.99. For more info, please visit MeoptaSportsOptics.com.
