Farmingdale, NY -( 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.”

I don’t get it, US is not even involved in this deal so I don’t get you concern about Israel not paying for these sights??


I agree with withholding foreign aid from countries that hate us.However Israel is a little different story. Israel has saved the U.S. taxpayer billions upon billions. Why do you think that the F-16 has been flying and up to date for 27 years … also the B-52 since 1953? and the A-10 Warthog? etc., I know this for a fact because I met Israeli instructors in San Antonio when they were lecturing A & P technicians for updated maintenance of the F-16; and th manuals were printed in Haifa. Why is our Abrams tank able to function in dessert conditions… Read more »



Here’s the problem with your Israel foreign aid complaint…..we give BILLIONS to almost every freakin’ nation on this planet ! Not just Israel.

I agree with you to stop the foreign aid with Israel. But I also want it stopped for every OTHER country that takes our fiat dollars. Especially Egypt.

Now….just quit whining and pay your taxes.


Will Israel pay for these sights ? Maybe be should just deduct from the 450 million dollars we ‘give’ them anually in financial aid. ka-ching,ka-ching. They have always reminded me of a grown adult child that won’t or refuses to move out of the parents house and support themselves and make it on their own.
