Meprolight — Upgrade Your Handgun Sights

Chances are, if you’re reading this, you are one of the millions who purchased a new handgun in the past year or so. Should you upgrade your sights? A better question might be, do you want to increase your capabilities? Tiger McKee, Director, Shootrite Firearms Academy recently penned the following, “Shooting accurately is all about sight alignment and a smooth press or stroke on the trigger. In self-defense applications, this has to be done under any and all conditions….The sights on your weapon have to be up to the task and may be one of the first modifications you need to consider.” (The Shooting, 4/19/21)

The engineers at Meprolight®, having served in the Israeli Defense Forces, understand the complexities of sight alignment, sight picture, and rapid target acquisition. From their experience, they have made Meprolight® into the world leader in handgun sights. Their multiple aiming solutions enable you to select the sight that best matches your shooting style. Three of the most popular are:

· Mepro Hyper-Bright™ —self-illuminated day/night sight with visually enhanced contrasting front sight

·Mepro Tru-Dot® — family of self-illuminated day/night sights

· Mepro MicroRDS™ —micro red dot optic. Make every pistol an optic ready pistol

McKee went on to say, “The majority of pistols offered today come with ‘good’ sights. However, to cut costs some factory sights are insufficient for defensive work. You can expect to install upgraded sights.“
