MePro Foresight Not The Same Old Optic
Written by Dan Thurs,

MePro is rapidly becoming a contender in top-quality optics. Personally and professionally I’ve used more than my fair share of optics, some rise to the top, others are OK, and many are just not really worth the time for professionals such as law enforcement, security or competition shooters. But Mepro has risen to the top with the Foresight. Welcome to the 21st century.
This is a robust sight to be blunt. We took this into the woods and gave it a major workout. Moving through branches and underbrush, had no effect on the sight, it held zero like a champ. Two quick-release makes removing the sight to be put on another firearm quick and easy. With up to 10 preset zero, you can swap firearms with a click on your phone or tablet, the sight does the rest. Swap the sight between your Springfield Armory Saint pistol, to an IWI X95 bullpup for close quarters to your long-range rifle. Now you have one sight that can be used on many of your firearms. Just think of the money that will save.
The MePro Foresight isn’t your average reflex style sight. Trust me, I’ve used a lot of them. Unlike all the others where you have perhaps 4 options of a reticle, the MePro Foresight has 20 options from the MeProLight app. From a tiny dot to very bold circles or crosshairs. Up to five reticles are stored on the sight itself. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. After a simple calibration, which involved me standing outside moving in a circle while pointing the firearm up and down at 45-degree angles. Up at each compass point, and down between each. I made two full circles and it was done. Now the Foresight will display my compass heading. Another interesting feature is the sight leveler, as seen on the far left of the sight. What this does is lets you know if the firearm is rotated.
How about we talk about the features here.

What does the future hold for the Foresight? Hard to say. With Bluetooth connectivity, features are being added, such as a shot counter. Personally, I would like to see something like the sight level indicator for the angle up and down, not just rotation of the firearm. Perhaps even having the reticle move to compensate for changes in level.
Speaking of zeroing the sight, another app that makes that task really easy is the Double Shoot™ App. With this app, you can have your firearm zeroed with just a few shots. Saving time and ammunition. You simply take a few shots, then take a picture using the Double Shoot™ App. The app will analyze your grouping to locate the mean point of impact and set zero. No need to even touch your sight. It’s all done right on your phone or tablet.
