Meprolight MOR

The Meprolight MOR is an advanced multifunction aiming sight, which combines a red dot sight, a visible laser and an IR laser. The MOR uses three power sources to illuminate the reticule:

  • Fiber optic - ambient light collection during daytime

  • Tritium - self-luminous Tritium during nighttime

  • Battery

The combination of an active (battery powered) and a passive (fiber optic and Tritium powered) illumination sources ensures long lasting battery life and enable the operational usage of the red dot sight even after battery drain. The MOR triple illuminated reticule further provide a clear point of aim in all lighting conditions, including partial or total darkness, and prevents the 'washing reticule effect' commonly found with in non-battery red dot sights under some lighting conditions.

The MOR entered service with the IDF SF in the early 2010's and quickly emerged as the IDF SF preferred optic. In 2016, afterit has been in service with the IDF SF for few years, the MOR won a formal IDF bid, and has been replacing legacy optics as well as standalone laser pointers since.

Since its adoption the MOR has been replacing ITL MARS, Meprolight Mepro 21 and other legacy optics and alongside its simpler sibling - the M5 - is the most commonly used red dot optic Israeli SF.
