Meopta Monday: The New MeoRed Reflex Sight

Meopta is pleased to introduce the MeoRed, its newest and most compact reflex sight.  The MeoRed features high-quality optics and a lower profile than its predecessor, the MeoSight III, allowing users to co-witness with most iron sights.   Parallax free and weighing just over an ounce, this sight is ideal for fast, close-quarter target acquisition with both eyes open and accurate shooting on the move.

Designed for use on handguns with cutout slides, AR platforms or shotguns, the MeoRed is well suited for tactical use as well as three-gun competitions, target shooting and hunting close-range moving game such as hogs.  It is made from aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and is fully waterproof and shockproof.  The MeoRed comes with an integrated MIL-STD 1913 mount in addition to an interface plate for a Docter mount and features easy to use windage (180 MOA) and elevation (120 MOA) adjustments.  Illumination of the 3 MOA red dot is activated by pushing the control button located on the left side of the sight and the brightness level of the red dot is continuous and easily adjustable. To turn the unit off, press the button and hold.

The MeoRed is powered by one CR 2032 battery for up to 300 hours of run time and features a low battery indicator dot that signals when the battery is running low. There is also an auto-off function that turns the unit off after three hours of continuous operation if the function button has not been touched.  The battery compartment is on the right side of the sight and can be accessed without taking the sight off the gun.  It is secured with two screws ensuring constant battery contact during extreme recoil.
