Meprolight MOR Reflex Sight



” Since MAC started to review the new IMI Tavor, he has been searching for the perfect optic for the Israeli bullpup. It just so happens that I have a Meprolight MOR on T&E from The Mako Group, the official importer of all the Meprolight optics for the North American market and the optic of choice by IDF Special Forces.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) were one of the first militaries to understand the importance of an optic equipped rifle for every infantryman. The standard reflex sight of the IDF is the Meprolight M21, but a select few in each unit are issued a specialized reflex sight with a built-in laser designator. The first in this new class of sights was the MARS (Multi-purpose Aiming Reflex Sight). The MARS integrated an AA battery-powered red reflex sight, dual laser designators and a tethered pressure switch for activation in a single unit.”








”  This administration is purposely schizophrenic on terrorism. It’ll drone select terrorists lurking overseas, but so far isn’t lifting a finger to apprehend the terrorists who attacked the US facility at Benghazi last September. Obama wants to avoid the optics of capturing them and then sticking them at Gitmo, and seems to prefer local proceedings to be done against transnational terrorists (some were from Yemen) who attacked and killed four Americans in a quasi-state.”





EOTech Celebrates Millionth Holo Sight with Year-Long Giveaway (VIDEO)







” As of March of 2013, EOTech has sold their millionth holographic sight. After 18 years of production, the company has reached a major landmark and is celebrating it in a major way, with a series of giveaways that will run from now until the end of the year.

EOTech is one of the preeminent firearm optic manufacturers in the world, with their hardware on hunting, competition shooting and fighting rifles everywhere.

Ed Schoppman, EOTech vice president stated that “The recognition of this 1 millionth sight milestone is our way to give something back and share our gratitude and appreciation for all the support our various customers have given us throughout the years.”

The giveaways will be posted to their Facebook page, with several slated for every week and Guns.com really likes how they’re determining winners. The rub’s that every holographic weapon sight and magnifier kit will be awarded to the first person to unravel a mini-mystery with each giveaway.


And the Grand Prize includes:

  • One WL1-AA tactical long gun light Retail value: $469
  • One X200XP handheld thermal imaging unit Retail value: $4999
  • One M914 weapon mounted night vision system Retail value: $4799
  • One Beamhit 190-3 Personal Marksmanship Training System Retail value: $329″







Vortex Optics: SPARC Red Dot





” The Vortex SPARC – Red Dot sight comes with a host of features and accessories, setting it apart from many products on the market. The SPARC is housed in aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum and contains all of the controls that one would expect to find, such as intensity, windage, and elevation adjustments.

Attached to the left side is a rubber pad containing four buttons, one of which controls power while the others control intensity and night vision capability. Up and down arrow buttons allow quick scrolling through 10 levels of brightness, while NV mode (night vision) can be toggled on and off, achieving an immediate and ultimate reduction in intensity. When activated, NV mode allows two levels of intensity.


The SPARC is a very nice reflex sight and worth the money – $216.94 from Cabellas. More information can be obtained at the Vortex website www.vortexoptics.com.”
