Israel's Meprolight introduced this week a new pistol sight, the Mepro FT Bullseye Front Sight. In a statement, the company said that Meprolight's design engineers recognized the strengths of the FT Bullseye rear sight capabilities, and from experience knew that front sight positioning would improve the speed and accuracy of target acquisition.
The Mepro FT Bullseye Front Sight is based on a shooter’s training to focus on the front sight only. The rear sight is not used or needed. Additionally, the front sight benefits those who have an astigmatism or age-related eyesight issues.
Utilizing patented fiber optic technology, Meprolight's engineers combined tritium with fiber optics to create the FT Bullseye family. Meprolight reduced the length of the optic, added an optical lens, tritium, and a dot/circle reticle. No batteries needed, the fiber optics illuminate the reticle during the day, and the tritium illuminates the reticle at night or in low-light conditions. The low profile of the sight allows the use of any holster without any adjustments.
Meprolight also said that the Mepro FT Bullseye family of sights are designed to be rugged and reliable under any condition. They withstand being dropped and are not impacted by the heavy recoil of larger caliber pistols, according to the company.
Meprolight is a manufacturer of electro-optical systems, thermal and night vision equipment, and self-illuminated sights for military, law enforcement and civilian applications.
