Aim gets better [DSEI17D4]

15 September 2017

At DSEI this week, Aimpoint of Sweden (Stand N2-229) announced the CompM5 reflex sight as the latest addition to its professional product line, the most compact optic in the Aimpoint Comp family of sights.

By virtue of using only a single AAA battery, the CompM5 can be made as compact as it is, with a weight of only 147g. Like Aimpoint’s other Comp series sights, it boasts a battery life of over five years of constant-on use at intensity level 7.

It is submersible to 45m (150ft) and is compatible with all generations of night vision devices, as well as Aimpoint’s professional magnifier line.

The military-grade optical lens provides a crisp, clear dot even under magnification.

‘‘The new CompM5 sight provides professional end-users the same levels of performance as our full-sized sights in a much more compact optic,’’ said Lennart Ljungfelt, Aimpoint AB president. ’’This new product saves on size and weight for the operator, with no sacrifice in overall performance.’’

Aimpoint is also showing three new magnifier lines, all of which are designed to work in conjunction with the company’s electronic reflex sights. The Aimpoint 3XC-1 is the standard grade for civilian and law enforcement applications, while the Aimpoint 3XMag-1 and 6XMag-1 are the higher grade products for tougher environments.

These magnifiers feature diopter adjustment to suit an individual shooter’s eye. They may be used with the Aimpoint quick-detach TwistMount or with the newly-launched FlipMount, which allows the device to be flipped in or out of the optical axis, or removed completely from the firearm.d
