Meprolight is a division of the SK Group, and a well-known manufacturer and global supplier of electro-optical and optical sights. In this article, we’ll focus on their new self-illuminated backup sights designed for the AR platform. You know, the sights that you must have, but pray you never need? The Mepro FUBS folding back-up sights are self-illuminated, by tritium, front and rear.
Made of fiberglass reinforced polymer and metal, with a spring-based locking mechanism they are designed not to break or deform. The sights are Picatinny rail compatible. The sight features tool-less elevation adjustment.
Here’s is the product announcement from Meprolight:
Recognizing the increasing demand for AR rifles and pistol platforms required additional back-up sight options, Meprolight® introduced Mepro FUBS— tritium-enhanced, self-illuminated front and two-dot rear back-up sights— designed to provide secondary sighting solution in case the primary optics go down.
The advanced, low-profile Mepro FUBS sights— mounted to any Picatinny rail— are extremely durable. The fiberglass reinforced polymer and metal construction houses the tritium vial which provides the illumination allowing you to confidently engage targets day or night. A spring-based locking mechanism allows you to quickly flip them into place when needed. Sight pin elevation is simple to adjust, no tools needed.
- Low profile and lightweight design
- Designed as a back-up sight, can be used as a primary sight
- Rugged fiberglass reinforced polymer and metal construction
- Compatible with all MIL-STD Picatinny rails
- 12 year warranty for Night Sight luminance
If you own an AR platform rifle and want to upgrade your self-defense capabilities, check out the Mepro FUBS, Mepro FRBS or the traditional AR-15 self-illuminated green dot front and rear sight specifically designed to fit all standard sights with the choice of thin front sight or standard sight for the A1 version.
