With so many different products coming out of SHOT Show it can be dizzying. Luckily, sometimes you are in the right place at the right time and you hear about something rather sweet.
I was in the Media room when people started chatting about the new Meprolight Foresight. I heard a few things and my curiosity peaked. I went right to their booth and took a look at the Foresight.
The Foresight looks like a fairly standard red dot sight. It’s square-shaped like an EOTech and has an integral mount, blah blah blah.
What makes it cool, though, is that the Foresight is a true heads-up display, something Meprolight calls an augmented red dot sight. It’s more akin to playing a video game than shooting with an optic.
The Foresight provides shooters with an aiming reticle, as well as an internal compass, 5 different reticle options, battery level indicator, a light sensor to adjust the reticle’s brightness, a sight leveler, and in the future, there will be a built-in shot counter.
The Foresight is also capable of connecting to your phone via Bluetooth. This allows you to access some additional features including 10 different zeroing profiles.
You could save multiple shooters’ zeroes for one gun, or you could store 10 different guns worth of zeroes on a single Foresight. It also has access to the Double Shoot app that measures your group on the target and gives you the correct adjustments to make zeroing right quick.
The information displayed on screen can be customized and it’s easy to do. The optic and the information presented is very clear and very adjustable for various brightness levels. The Foresight is already for sale and has a street price of around $650.
The shot counter is coming with the next update, but the next update didn’t have a solid date yet and I don’t want to post speculation. I’m still excited as this is something new and even, dare I say, innovative.
