The MEPRO M5 is a 280gr lightweight MIL-STD, red-dot sight, specifically optimized for “both eyes open” shooting, operation with GEN II and III night vision devices, as well as weapon mounted magnification devices. An ideal solution for light machine guns, assault rifles and sub-machine guns, the M5 features an enlarged 33 x 22 display, ensuring un-paralleled rapid target acquisition. The sight features a 2-MOA red-dot aiming point with four variable brightness settings, to remain effective on the darkest night or sunniest day.

The M5 utilizes the MIL-STD-1913 rail system (Picatinny) and uses a single AA battery with auto-power on/off, providing up to 8,000 hours of operation.

“The M5 is an important addition to the Meprolight’s portfolio of day sights,” says Golan Kalimi, Meprolight’s VP for Marketing, “The unit is a significant stride forward in Meprolight’s long track record of success in combat optics” Mr. Kalimi emphasizes.

Bringing together Meprolight’s accumulated knowledge and expertise in this demanding area, the M5 was designed using the latest operational feedback that emphasized the need for all the features included, but also demanded a light and rugged chassis for the entire system.

Actually Meprolight did a great job on this sight. It has a large clear field of view, easy to sight in, with simple controls & a red dot that works in bright & low light situations. The on off feature works as stated by the company & I for one prefer it over my Meprolight 21, which I have on 3 other rifles. Have already used this sight with my Tavor & probably 5000 rounds through it with no problems even in torrential rain. Has become my new favorite sight. While the Eotech is as all know a fine sight,… Read more »

Unless this is priced at around to under $200 I don't see it going anywhere.

They took an EOTech and made it ugly with sharp corners and put a red dot (not good in sunlight) instead of a good reticle (like EOTech uses).

I have a Mepro Reflex with the amber dot… AWESOME sight!

If this had an amber dot or chevron it might be ok bit for a bulky squared red dot… I'll deal with an old M2… you can get those relatively cheap now.

C'mon Meprolite… you can do better!
