FARMINGDALE, New York – The M21 reflex sight, manufactured by Meprolight and brought to the US market by The Mako Group, is uniquely suited for a law enforcement role. The M21 sight, the standard issue combat sight for the Israeli Defense Forces, is a self-illuminated reflex sight powered by tritium and a fiber optic collector system. Previously available in the US with an effective bullseye-style reticle, the M21 features batteryless operation free of any electronics or power switches . . .

The Mepro M21, solves the logistical problems of keeping officers supplied with fresh batteries.  The reticle is always on and ready for use, and adjusts automatically to ambient light conditions. The unlike other sights, the M21 has no delicate moving parts or circuitry inside the site, so it can withstand heavy abuse, moisture, and humidity. Zero adjustments take place between the sight and its rugged quick-release base. The M21 can be removed and reinstalled and will keep its zero. The user can always pick up his weapon with absolute confidence that his optic will be ready, operational, and zeroed.

The standard reticle option for the US market has been the bullseye reticle, designed to speed aiming in close-quarters, while providing precision for longer ranges. The Mako Group has now introduced the Triangle reticle, Open X reticle, and both 4.3 MOA and 5.5 MOA Dot reticles in the United States.

“The non-electronic Mepro M21 sight with bullseye reticle has proven immensely popular with law enforcement agencies who need a rugged sight that can withstand rough rides and extreme temperatures in the trunk of a patrol car, and is always ready for instant use without worry about dead or leaking batteries,” Addy Sandler, CEO of The Mako Group explained. “Now these agencies have the option of choosing the precise triangle and dot reticles to fit any intended use.”

Meprolight is one of the four world leaders in the manufacture of combat reflex sights, and the first to manufacture a 30mm reflex sight designed specifically for shooting with both eyes open for CQB use, before anyone used the term “CQB.” Meprolight builds advanced reflex optics, grenade launcher optical sights, and uncooled thermal sniper scopes for the Israeli Defense Forces and other militaries worldwide.

  1. Am Yisroel Chai!
    Just to let you know, the beautiful weapon that the sight is mounted on is the TAR-21 aka “Tavor”. TTAG, still waiting on a write up with your opinion on the Tavor.

    • No. Canada had an import version, but I don’t know if it is still being imported in the Great White North. There have been various attempts by several companies (such as Barrett) to acquire the US import rights to the Tavor, but they’ve all fallen through. Don’t know why. My guess it that the political/bureaucratic hurdles are too great, or the rights holders (Isreal?) are demanding too much.

  2. A tritium reflex sight is just about the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. I should totally put one on my Marlin 1894.


  3. Pretty sure there is still not a civi legal/imported Tavor, otherwise I’d likely have gotten it already. About the only semi auto bullpup that I think doesn’t end up with some big failing. (MSAR reliability/parts/CS whatever issues, FN2k no calibre choice/awkward for me, etc)

  4. Excellent write-up. I had no idea these existed in a battery-free design and I’m 100% likely to buy one now.

    Good grief, I am spending like a drunken yuppie on firearms items lately.

  5. The M21 has been around and available in the states for a number of years already. Six months ago I was looking around the interwebs for info and reviews, and about the only website found with a review of the M21 was in Thai! Then Mako starts importing the M21 and now everyone knows about them and there’s lots of info online – ha!

  6. I’d go for the X or triangle reticles…any preferences here?

    Much le$$ than Trijicon, more compact but I’d make that white opaque front CLEAR matte, with anti reflective coating (sun’s UV rays will opaque anyway), then put a killflash on it.
