Aftermarket options for IWI Masada and Masada Slim owners just increased. Meprolight, the maker of the popular Mepro Hyper-Bright sights has expanded its line to include options for those two handguns. The sights are reportedly 30% brighter than other pistol sights on the market and come with an extremely bright contrasting color ring on the front sight.
The tritium in the sight is specifically formulated to give the shooter the industry-first brilliance from broad daylight to midnight, according to MeproLights. The proprietary coating used on the front sight ring improves target acquisition during the day while the tritium illumination does the same at night and in low-light conditions.
The rear sight which features a “U”-notch contains just the tritium vials and lacks any significant contrasting color or outline that you would otherwise find on styles of sights like MeproLights Tru-Dot family of night sights. The contrast in the presentation of the front and rear sight helps the shooter focus on the front sight quicker, which is critical in defensive and competitive shooting.
Meprolight recommends the end user upgrade the sights on the handgun with tritium enhanced day/night sights to increase their capabilities in any lighting condition. Bill Yerby V.P. Sales & Marketing, Meprolight added, “….selecting your sights is as important as selecting your firearm. Upgrading the sights on your EDC—Every Day Carry—gun, will increase your capabilities to put the shots you need on target, in any light, when you need them the most. Without a doubt, Meprolight Hyper-Bright sights will give you an edge.”
The IWI Masada and Masada Slim allow for aftermarket sight upgrades, like the Mepro Hyper-Bright sights. The low-profile barrels and perceived reduced recoil are a good match for the bright sights allowing the shooter to get on target and stay there easier.
