The Mako Group now offers shooters the ultimate shooter’s kit (USK3 and USK5). This kit consists of three products:
(1) a self-powered day/night reflex sight with dust cover
(2) Mako’s very popular 3X or 5X magnifier, depending on which kit is purchased and
(3) Mako’s new smart mount, known as the micro adjustable pop-up mount. These three products are packaged in a single hard shell case for protection and ease of transport.
Self-Powered Day/Night Reflex Sight with dust cover (SPRS)
The SPRS is a MIL-SPEC, durable, self-illuminated, maintenance-free, reflex sight that provides instant light aiming without batteries or switches. It uses a fiber optic collector system by day, and a miniature self-powered tritium light source at night. It delivers a bright, red-orange, dependable bulls eye reticle. The SPRS has 1X magnification and comes with a 30mm lens. The user can look through the sight with two eyes open for quick shooting and rapid target acquisition or the user can use one eye to look through the sight while the other eye retains full peripheral vision. Included with the SPRS is a MIL-SPEC quick-release mounting system that fits a Picatinny rail and offers a 10-year illumination warranty to the original purchaser. Lastly, the Israeli Defense Forces (i.e. the Israeli military) has standardized on the SPRS for all its personnel. The SPRS is manufactured for The Mako Group by Meprolight in Israel.
3X or 5X Magnifier (MD-3XMGNF or MD-5XMGNF)
These magnifiers were developed to work with most red dot/reflex sights. They have a retail price point which is significantly less than the price of any other magnifier on the market. Specifications include: a 30mm diameter which allows maximum light, 1.65″ (42mm) of eye relief, a 6° field of view; 4.5” length, only 6 oz. in weight, fog-proof internal optics, and a non-reflective hard-coated finish.
Micro Adjustable Pop-up Mount (MAM30)
The MAM30, the only smart mount on the market today for AR15/M4/M16 rifles, is considered a much better alternative than a ‘flip-to-the-side’ mount because it offers superior capabilities not found in any other mount. The MAM30 not only pops up and down like a periscope, but the up/down adjustment can be fine-tuned in 11 steps to fit all red dot/reflex sights. These capabilities also allow the user to switch focus within a split second from a longer range to CQB (Close Quarters Battle) because the MAM30 pops-up out of the way. Since the MAM30 does not flip-to- the-side when not in use, the weapon’s center of balance is maintained.
USK3 retail pricing is $816.55. Additional information and pictures can be found here.
USK5 retail pricing is $840.05. Additional information and pictures can be found here.
