New from Meprolight: MEPRO 6X Day Scope

Yesterday, I shot the new Tavor 7 topped by a Meprolight 4X scope. Yes please! Oh wait. Here’s an optic that can help me stretch my future rifles’ legs up to 1000 meters: the MEPRO 6X Day Scope. If it’s good enough for the IDF, it’s good enough for the IDF. Or something like that. Presser: USA […]
