Pick up any gun magazine and you will see reviews on the benefits of micro-red-dot sights or ads for new pistols coming from the factory optics-ready. What if, like millions of other Americans, you already own a standard pistol — not optics ready — and want to mount a micro-red-dot? The main issue when purchasing a red-dot optic for your pistol involved milling the slide to mount the optic. Another issue involved the need for tall, co-witness iron sights for back-up purposes. On top of that, what happens if you don’t want the optic on your gun for any particular reason? Technological advances in design and manufacturing allowed the engineers at Meprolight® to solve these problems with the Mepro microRDS.
The Mepro microRDS — with the patented quick-detach (QD) adaptor Kit — featuring a 3 MOA dot utilizes the existing rear dovetail slot to mount the adaptor holding the Mepro microRDS or any other red dot optic available on the market. Now, many different brand pistols can use a red-dot optic without the need to drill and tap mounting holes on barrels or slides. The adaptor mounts directly to a Meprolight TruDot®, self-illuminated sight which also functions as a back-up sight should the shooter need to remove the optic. It can be placed back on the gun without having to re-zero the sight.
Designed as a primary pistol optic; it can also serve as a backup or secondary CQB sight on rifles by attaching it to the Picatinny rail. Works great on shotguns too. The small, durable, and lightweight micro pistol optic utilizes a 3.0 MOA red dot for quick target acquisition. The energy-efficient sight is powered by a single common CR2032 battery that can be changed without removing the sight from the gun.
The crystal-clear sight window provides greater Field-Of-View with both eyes open in any lighting condition—day, low-light or nighttime.
