New Thermal and Red Dot Sights from Meprolight

Israeli company Meprolight, best known as supplier of optics to the IDF, will be unveiling a range of new thermal and red dot sights at SHOT Show …

A new member of the NOA NYX Family, the NOA NYX 3X Un-cooled Thermal Weapon Sight with X 2.7 magnification, sustains the recoil of 5.56, 7.62 and 338 Cal. rifles. Less than 2.2 Ibs in weight, the sight is designed to meet the highest MIL SPEC requirements. With this new addition, Meprolight offers four distinct sights with different magnifications of 2X, 3X, and 7X for a variety of operational and tactical needs.

The NOA XT4 is a compact and lightweight dual-use Thermal Weapon/Surveillance clip-on. It is designed for Armed Forces and Law Enforcement Special Forces – providing easy thermal clip-on for mounting in-line with a combat 4x day scope or used as a handheld surveillance device.

The MEPRO 4X is a compact and lightweight (1.7 Ibs) combat 4x scope. Utilizing a quick release Picatinny adaptor, this MIL-STD sight provides five different brightness settings. The sight operates with a single standard battery and is equipped with a unique energy saver feature for extended operation.

The MEPRO M5 is a 0.7 lb lightweight MIL-STD, red-dot sight, specifically optimized for “both eyes open” shooting. An ideal solution for light machine guns, assault rifles, and sub-machine guns, the M5 features an enlarged 33 x 22 display and a 2-MOA red-dot aiming point with four variable brightness settings, and enables up to 8,000 hours of operation.

    so if you put a x4 behind this thermal scope you are magnifying the pixels on the thermal sight’s eyepiece screen?

    I wonder what the usable resolution is, and if digital zoom would be a better idea.

    When I first saw the Tavor on “Future Weapons” a while back, the IDF guy they were interviewing said that the optics on the weapon were turned on and off automatically by using the weapon’s safety selector. This sounded like an awesome idea. Anybody know if this feature works using any of these Israeli manufactured optics, on the civilian version of the Tavor?

    Mepro is pricey, I wonder how much of a price difference there will be between their red dot sight an Eotech’s?

    “Law Enforcement Special Forces” I never heard that term before, but I guess they mean SWAT.

    Shows how bullpups cut down on sighting options doesn’t it?
