MAKE: Meopta MODEL: MeoRed T SPECS: 1.5 MOA, 1x30mm; 1 AA battery; 1,000 hours URL: Meopta.com MSRP: $1,000
The MeoRed T is a rugged, fast-aiming red-dot optic made of aluminum/magnesium alloy. It uses anti-reflective multicoating for clarity and light transmission, along with a hydrophobic layer to dissipate water. It’s nitrogen filled, hermetically sealed and watertight, even when immersed. It’s very durable and impact resistant: We drop-tested it 10 times from 6 feet, and it worked perfectly. We submerged it, froze it overnight at -10 degrees (F) and then busted it out of the ice block. It still worked perfectly. It’s a little pricey, but it’s a top-notch optic.
