"In preparation for our up and coming release of the TAR 21 AEG, we have secured an exclusive distribution agreement with ITL Optronics for the MARS sight.
Although these sights are primarily geared for the Law enforcement / military community and not the average airsofter due to their cost, we are still offering them to those who wish to create the ultimate IDF impression, and will also offer a cheaper alternative aimed at the airsoft market once the TAR 21 is out."
that... will be mine

That'll add about a ba-zillion cool points to just about anything.

Would look awesome on an AR, methinks.

I'm going to guess $700.00 for the real version, $300.00 for the airsoft.

Just a guess.

That's not a bad price, is the laser co-witnessed or separately zeroed?

Price is 850 according to TSI. Which isn't a bad price. Though the MARS really isn't that good of a sight.

If the TAR21 wasn't such an ugly gun I'd consider snagging one.

850 for a replica sight is rediculace.

Rather spend that 850 and get me a Trijicon ACOG or Eotech / Magnifery Combo.

Does it play "Pump Up The Volume" when you bag a kill?

To be fair, so is your spelling of ridiculous.

Any info on the co-witness issue?

the military MARS sight comes with a co-witnessed IR laser. i doubt that they would NOT restrict sales to civilians. the "commercial" version, if made, would likely have a visible laser. furthermore the MARS sight has a crappier battery life even more than the Eotech 551/511 series.

thanks but i'll stick to my aimpoint m2, which has a battery life of over 1 yr and my micro T1 or M3/4, which has a battery life of over 3-5yrs.


"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."

I'm not sure if it's co-aligned. I think the Insight ISM-V Integrated Sight Module is one of the few RDS/laser sights that are co-aligned. If the ITL MARS is co-aligned that'd be nice as it's priced similar to the Insight ISM-V.

Not sure about the laser, but just for some more info it CANNOT co=witness with the iron sights
Btw is TSI the one releasing the TAR 21 AEG or what?
Let me put it this way, you could rage every day for the rest of your life and you still couldn't rage like me.

At least the clone MARS will likely work better than the fake-o-techs. It's a reflex sight to begin with smile.gif

That's good-it will be expensive though. Not to be a spoil-sport, but I prefer the EOTech 553 and 551/552 series.

One word: Fap-tastic!

Looks awesome on a Carbine. Too bad it's way too high to mount on a SIR, though.

And I assume the optic behind it, is some sort of nightvision device?
