First time I've seen the IDF with one. But just with an instructor.

They must have some long necks in Israel. It's what I had on my SAR and more than likely will return to it in the near future as the LMT I put it on has been out of action since day one and waiting on them to return a functioning barrel back to me.

I watched your video and noticed two things. When one of the male shooter's Glock ran dry and the slide locked back, instead of simultaneously dropping the empty magazine with his right hand (strong hand) while grabbing the fresh magazine with his left hand (weak hand), he grabs the fresh magazine and seems to hit the magazine release with the left hand while holding the fresh magazine, dropping the magazine and then loading the fresh magazine into the magwell. The other thing I noticed was the female with brown hair that had what appeared to be a holosight that looked similar to an EoTech AA battery unit (I know it was probably not an EoTech, but, probably some kind of Meprolight unit) that appeared to be on backwards. The AA battery compartment was nearest  toward her face while the flat side was  further away. Otherwise, an interesting video. I have several Elcan DR Specter scopes on several of my rifles. It's an outstanding scope. I traded or sold off all of my Trijicon ACOG scopes to get the superior Elcans.

The reflex sights/optics they were using were the ITL/MARS reflex sight with integrated laser, the meprolight MEPRO MOR tri-powered (battery, tritium, magnified ambient light) “backwards looking EoTech” reflex sight with integrated laser, that is replacing the MARS. Think there was also a quick shot of the meprolight M5 reflex sight which is replacing the meprolight M21.

Sights I saw:

Mepro MOR (NRA's American Rifleman Optic of the Year 2015)
Mepro M5 (RDS Pro)
MARS ITL (being phased out like DubageL said, along with the Mepro 21)

Didn't see any backwards sights. Did you mean this girl?

Elcans are that much more superior? I just recently got a 1-8x scope by Trijicon and am disappointed. I've used but never used ACOGs; I really like them but don't think they are worth the price tag.

I have a 1-8 Accupower with red mil reticle and love it. What model do you have and what is the reasons for your disappointment?

I have the same. The reticle bleeds alot and the illumination isn't perfectly aligned either. At 8x is when this becomes apparent and very distracting. Also, 1x isn't true 1x and messes with my eye sight when I have both eyes open.

I have not found a LPVO that is true 1X, this includes Vortex Razor HD Gen 2, Trijicon Accupower and Accupoint, Leupold Mk6 as well as EOTech Vudu. All of them blur the front sight post on my rifles to some extent, some worse than others. I have not used my Accupower enough to notice the illumination bleeding issue but will pay attention next time I shoot through it.

I have a Kahles K16i 1-6x and if it isn't a true 1x, then it's close enough that you can't notice the difference.
