The Mepro Tru-Dot RDS red dot sight is now (officially) available in the United States. Its been about a year since TFB has a first-look at the sight, but The Mako Group has made good on its promise. Powered from a standard AA battery, the optic is designed for the simultaneous performance and value-oriented shooter.
The sight features Q/D mounting to standard picatinny rails, a 1.8 MOA red dot (beating out AimPoint’s 2 MOA) and a large 33 x 20mm window or 1.29 x .78″ for us Imperialists. The sight is NVG compatible and uses LEDs for its illumination, but no specific battery life is claimed.
