It could be on a dusty 3-Gun course or, in more dire circumstances, such as a self-defense situation involving multiple attackers, but you’ll find that speed is your friend. Your ability to move target to target, seamlessly and accurately, precisely placing shots is of critical importance. Honestly, in the latter example, it could be a matter of life and death.
Good old trigger time, of course, is at the root of honing muscle memory and mindset to get the most out of a gun. But as shooters, we’d be remiss if we didn’t give ourselves every advantage out there. And in the modern shooting world, there are certainly accessories that enhance our hard-won abilities and act as force multipliers in skilled hands.
Quality optics definitely fall into this category. And the recently released Meopta MeoRed T Reflex Sight appears to have what it takes to bring the most out of the shooter and his firearms. Designed as a primary aiming solution for tactical rifles, the minute red-dot optic is ruggedly built and engineered for lightning-fast target transitions.
Perhaps the most attractive feature of the 1x30mm optic is the red dot itself, which is set up to shave hairs off a gnat’s hiney. This is due to its 1.5 MOA illuminated dot. While certain to excel at close quarters, and shots on the fly, the dot is fine enough to hold its own at medium to medium-long ranges.
The MeoRed T’s reticle is also ready to tackle nearly every lighting environment thrown at it with 12 intensity settings. Improving this is the company’s MeoBright multi-lens coatings, which provide a crystal clear sight picture, eliminating glare and reflections and delivering 99.7-percent light transmission per lens surface. Meopta has even gone a step further with the MeoRed T, coating the external lens surfaces with its MeoDrop, a hydrophobic coating that repels rain and snow, in addition to skin oils and dirt.
Meopta has done plenty to protect all that high-tech glass and hardware, building the MeoRed T’s tube of aircraft-grade aluminum. The unit completely sealed and waterproof, as well as shockproof. In short, it’s tough as boots.
As a standalone, the optic is set to shine in nearly any tactical application, but Meopta has designed the MeoRed T as an all-around sighting solution. Compatible with night vision optics and magnifiers, the red dot is set to tackle nearly any conceivable operation.
As is expected on any piece of equipment that delivers, the MeoRed T has a bit of a price tag — $1,000 MSRP. It’s not through the roof in the optics world, but it is spendy. However, for shooters who are set to make the most of their rifles and skills, the red dot sight might be priced right.
