Aimpoint Comp M4 Review

Aimpoint Comp M4 is a series of sights that are favored by the US military. While the CompM4 has a slightly different appearance from the earlier CompM2 and M3, the most notable improvement is the incredible ACET Technology which improves the units’ energy efficiency, providing up to 8 years of continuous use from a single AA battery. This is a specialty that defines the red dot sights from Aimpoint. The battery lives of these devices are unbeatable. Even if you leave the devices on, the batteries will last upto 8 years. It is this feature that makes the Aimpoint Comp M4 one of the most popular red dot sights in the world.

There is no built-in shutoff in the CompM4. A new integral mount comes standard with the CompM4 which eliminates the need for a separate ring. This brand utilizes a unique band-pass coating on the front lens which reflects select frequencies of red light at near 100% efficiency in order to give the highest possible dot brightness with the smallest amount of energy while transmitting nearly 100% of light in the infrared and near-infrared part of the spectrum to provide the clearest, brightest, image possible when used with a Gen3 NVD. However, the Comp M4 is still optimized for use with all generations of night vision devices.
