If you are an EOTech owner looking for an upgrade the Mako Group has an offer for you. For a limited time, until April 15, 2016, the Mako Group is taking in used EOTech optics and offering significant discounts on two popular Meprolight optics in return.
The offer is good for any EOTech sight, no matter what its condition is or even if it works. Electronics and aerospace firm L-3 Communications, manufacturer of EOTech optics recently settled a major lawsuit filed by the federal government on behalf of the Department of Defense, the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security over concerns about the performance of EOTech optics.
Multiple sources including military users have reported problems with EOTech sights losing their zero after undergoing significant temperature shifts and failing to return to zero after going back to normal temperatures. The Mako Group is taking advantage of this recent turn of events, offering discounts on Mepro RDS PRO and Mepro MOR optics.
Both Meprolight sights have been tested thoroughly by the Israeli Defense Force and have proven to be durable, long-lasting and consistent in lab conditions and in the field.
“Military, law enforcement and civilians alike need their optics to perform at peak efficiency in all weather and temperature conditions,” said Mako Chief Executive Officer Addy Sandler. “Both of these battle-tested sights are designed and built in accordance with military specifications.”
You don’t have to be an active-duty soldier to need your optic to maintain its zero. Major temperature shifts happen across the country and that affects hunters, recreational shooters and law enforcement. In many states even the inside of a vehicle parked in the sun can break into the triple digits in a very short period of time. And Meprolight is more than aware of that.
The Mepro RDS PRO is a AA battery-operated, LED-powered red dot sight with a 1.8-MOA reticle. Depending on the power setting the optic can provide up to 10,000 hours or more on a single easy-to-find AA cell, and it has multiple daylight power settings, night-vision settings, an auto shut-off function and a low-power indicator to give you the heads up that it’s time to drop in a new battery.
It’s a large red dot sight that offers a very wide field of view and is tough enough that it can shrug off serious blows to the window and sight body without harm. The Mako Group is offering $250 rebates to anyone looking to exchange their EOTechs, bringing the total price down to $445.
The Mepro MOR is a more advanced optic that combines a red dot sight with a complete pointer system including a red light laser sight and optional infrared laser indicator for use with compatible night vision systems. It is offered with multiple reticle options as well, a large 4.3-MOA dot or a bullseye reticle.
The MOR runs off three separate power sources to ensure functionality at all times. The reticle is lit with a light collector by day and powered by a tritium lamp at night and boosted by a battery-operated LED for enhanced visibility under all conditions.
It’s not an inexpensive sight but Mako is making it a lot more appealing with $400 off the sticker price in exchange for your old EOTech, bringing the price down to $885 for the base models. Depending on how much you paid for your EOTech sight, that alone may make up the difference.
This is a great option for anyone who doesn’t want to participate in the EOTech refund process, which can take time. This is a quick and easy way to get behind a new optic without a lot of hassle.
