The use of the advanced rifle sights by the Israeli defence forces (IDF) in the ongoing war with the Hamas and Hezbollah in Gaza and Lebanon will soon result with more contacts including from countries in South America.

Sources in the Israeli ministry of defence said that the fighting in the ongoing war proves the critical importance of the advanced sight.

We expect additional export contracts including in some South American countries” one of the sources said.

Last October Israeli company Meprolight signed a contract for the supply of tens of thousands of its MEPRO MOR sights to a South American country. This sight has been developed based on the operational experience of the Israeli defence forces (IDF) infantry units.

According to the company, the MEPRO MOR sights effectively address three distinct needs within a single, sophisticated product – functioning as a battery-free passive reflector sight, a visible pointer, and an invisible IR pointer. Consequently, this advanced solution yields substantial cost savings, enveloping operational and maintenance expenses that would otherwise be incurred by deploying three separate sights. Additionally, the MEPRO MOR sights enhances mission flexibility, further elevating its utility and adaptability.

The sight’s battery-free reticle system enables accurate, fast, and instinctive firing at all times without the need to turn the sight ON; even if the sight is switched to OFF or has no batteries, its light-collecting fiber- optic and a tritium capsule ensure full day and night reticle availability.

Developed based on IDF requirements, the MEPRO sights has been designed with a 30mm diameter lens to ensure easy and rapid target acquisition with both eyes open; it effectively supports instinctive close-range firing in urban and CQB conditions, as well as shooting at longer distances in open- terrain operations, while under harsh environmental conditions and combat stress.

The MEPRO MOR sights features a unique simultaneous zeroing mechanism for all its aiming devices; zeroing can be conveniently performed day or night while saving time and ammunition.
