Meprolight – a leading manufacturer of electro-optical systems, thermal and night vision equipment, Laser Range Finder systems, and Self-Illuminated sights for military, law enforcement and civil applications – was selected by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) as the sole supplier of the next generation of combat sights. Delivery of thousands of MEPRO M5 Red Dot Sights will begin next month and continue for about a year.
According to Benny Kokia, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, “We are very proud that the IDF selected us as the sole suppliers of their next generation of combat sights, following an evaluation and testing process that resulted in a clear acknowledgement that the MEPRO M5 is the best sight in its category.”
The MEPRO M5 Red-Dot Sight is an energy-efficient, compact sight that provides thousands of operating hours while utilizing a single “AA” commercial battery. Featuring battle-proven LED technology and rugged MIL-STD design, the sight assures reliability under the harshest environmental conditions. With its large display window and clearly-defined Red Dot, the MEPRO M5 ensures rapid target acquisition with both eyes open. Offering numerous reticle brightness intensities, the MEPRO M5 suits every tactical scenario. To facilitate night operations and long-range target engagement, the MEPRO M5 is compatible with GEN II and GEN III NVGs as well as with Magnifying Scopes. Its human engineering allows positioning of NVGs and Magnifiers close to the sight’s optics with no decrease in the field-of-view and without compromising convenient switch operation.
Mr. Kokia added, “In addition to the technological superiority, the quality, and the high level performance of the MEPRO M5 Red Dot Sight, we were also selected due to the excellent service we provide our customers. Our customer service begins long before the actual purchase is made, and continues throughout the integration process and maintenance support. We consider the ongoing post-sale follow-up of great importance, and regard it as the key to creating long-term relationships with our customers.”
The Bushnell Elite series handgun scope offers pistol and revolver shooters a tough, high quality scope designed to handle the heavy recoil of hunting loads.
The scope is forged from tough T5056 aluminum and built to withstand heavy use. The multi-coated lenses feature Ultra Wide Band (UWB) Coating, providing optimum brightness, true color across the light spectrum and constant light transmission of 90 percent.
Purged using Argon gas, the Elite series scopes are 100 percent waterproof and fog proof. Benefits of Argon-purging include a lesser likelihood of dissipation from the scope body, due to the large atom size, and the gas doesn’t create chemical reactions that can result in the corrosion or degradation of seals. The handgun scope also features the patented RainGuard® HD lens coating, a permanent, water-repellant coating that causes moisture to bead up and scatter less light, allowing the scope to perform in inclement weather.
The Elite handgun scope is available in a 2-6x 32mm configuration with 20 inches of constant eye relief, making it ideal for handguns with heavy recoil. It is available in either matte black or silver with a suggested retail price of $299.99.

That MSRP looks awfully good for something of this level. Murdoc’s been sort of itching for a real set of night vision goggles.
Designed by Barry Dueck—Director of SureFire’s Suppressor Division and a top 3-Gun shooter—these sights mount directly to a weapon’s Picatinny rail, offset from center by approximately 45°. This unique offset position makes transitioning from optical to iron sights simply a matter of quickly canting the weapon with your wrists and locking on to the target. There’s no removing a hand from the weapon or making a manual adjustment, and no cluttered field of vision or iron sights blocking the optical sight. Just smooth, quick transitions that could mean the difference between winning or losing a competition, or more importantly—a gunfight.

VICTORIA, BC, CANADA – A “new generation”, “4-point” mounting solution for your M14 or M1A rifle that “unitizes” the mount to the M14 receiver to create an exceptionally secure M14 optics platform, was released today by M14.ca. It is the first 4-point M14 scope mount, engineered to eliminate that troublesome “left leg” used by most of the current scope mounts, and all of the on-going problems associated with that mounting approach.
“No more loose side mount screws, no more rotation under recoil around that side screw (which leads to loss of vertical zero) and no more shimming to set the proper tension and windage for horizontal zero on out of specification receivers. Also, no more having to use Epoxy® or welding, and no more worrying about over-torqued side screws shearing off.,” says a company representative of M14.ca, the scope mount’s manufacturer.
Murdoc doesn’t have personal experience with mounting scopes on M14s. How does this solution look?
