The M5 utilizes the MIL-STD-1913 rail system (Picatinny) and uses a single AA battery with auto-power on/off, providing up to 8,000 hours of operation. "The M5 is an important addition to the Meprolight's portfolio of day sights," says Golan Kalimi, Meprolight's VP for Marketing, "The unit is a significant stride forward in Meprolight's long track record of success in combat optics" Mr. Kalimi emphasizes.
Bringing together Meprolight's accumulated knowledge and expertise in this demanding area, the M5 was designed using the latest operational feedback that emphasized the need for all the features included, but also demanded a light and rugged chassis for the entire system.
