Meopta announced a new compact reflex sight called the MeoRed. This new sight reduces the overall profile of the optic as compared to the existing MeoSight III. The lower profile is said to improve the ability to co-witness iron sights.
The new MeoRed is a 1x (non magnifying) optic that uses a 3 MOA red dot for aiming. Meopta states the sight is good for rifles and shotguns. The company further states that the optic is very light – one ounce – and performs exceptionally well on handguns. Tactical use is obvious, but the sight should do well for competition and some forms of hunting as well.
As it ships, the MeoDot comes with a Picatinny mount and a Docter mount interface plate for handguns.
A single CR 2032 battery powers this unit for up to 300 hours of continuous run time. It has an auto shut off feature that turns off the unit at three hours. The battery can be replace while the sight is still attached to the gun. Meopta uses a pair of screws to ensure the battery stays in place during high recoil.
According to the company, the sight is completely waterproof and shockproof. They back that up with a lifetime warranty that is transferable. The suggested retail price of this unit is $517.49.
