Aimpoint manufactures top quality red dot sights that are widely used by military and law enforcement. Each sight is hand-built, assigned an individual identification number and undergoes rigorous testing and numerous quality control checks during the manufacturing process. Aimpoint Micro t-1 is the most popular optics. This lightweight optic is as durable as they come. It works perfectly for a variety of weapons, like, Shotguns, Handguns, carbines, sub-machine guns and rifles. There are several different mounts available to accommodate your needs but from the factory it is fit for a picatinny rail. Also included are rubber lens covers to protect the glass and a 3V battery.
You only need to hold the sight to feel the workmanship that was involved. The lines are smooth and the glass is clean. The optic definitely feels solid. The large nob on the right hand side controls the brightness of the red dot. You will like the size and location of the brightness knob. It makes it easy to find and adjust even when shooting with gloves.
The windage and elevation turrets are protected by smaller caps with little bumps on them. These caps are actually the tool used to adjust the sight. No flathead screw driver or other tools to carry. The unit is self contained. A feature that I love is the 5 year continuous use battery life. This means you do not need to worry about turning the dot on and off. Just leave it on all the time. The 3V battery will still last 5 years.
There are two different dots size available for the Aimpoint Micro t-1 red dot sight. There is a 2MOA and also a 4MOA. We will be using the latter. The 1X optic is Parallax-free with unlimited eye relief. Aimpoint’s unique coating on the front lens reflects the dot’s selected frequency of red light at near 100% efficiency to give the highest possible dot brightness with the least amount of energy. This sight is compatible a 3rd generation night vision devices or NVD. The T-1 is submersible to 80 feet should you feel the need to take a dip with your rifle.
