Here we go again, another review of Aimpoint Red Dot Sight- that’s why you might be thinking! Those that count on and rely on their weapons working day in and day out with tried and true hardware though can’t afford to have failures due to quality or materials. And then entered the new Aimpoint P.R.O. or Patrol Rifle Optic! This brand is known for its hardened optics for the last 35 years or more. The Aimpoint Micro H-1 Red Dot Sight is one of the many models that are available from this brand. People who use these stuffs know of the likes of T-1 Micro and the Comp M4 (M68 CCO) and I bet you must have been thoroughly impressed with them.
But most of these things are beyond being affordable. But the Aimpoint PRO is exactly what you have been looking for. This is worth every penny. It is an optic that is available with a kind of ruggedness, durability, simplicity and reputation that is almost unbeatable at that price. When you have different requirements, you can scale back some features without taking them away. Developed in fact as a Patrol Rifle Optic geared towards Law Enforcement, 40 levels of brightness in both red dot and Night Vision aren’t really a necessity.
I can keep boring you with all the facts, figures and data but what it boils down to is that Aimpoint made this optic with the same Advanced Circuit Efficiency Technology they use in just about every reflex sights they have made. They use the same materials and just use less costly manufacturing methods. They cut down 5mm on the glass and use a similar but different mounting method and keep all the weight down by switching to a smaller lighter battery that lasts 30,000 hours instead of 50,000-80,000 hours. They kept the 2MOA dot. Aimpoint also cut down on the number of brightness options for both red dot and NV brightness levels. Gears and adjustment dials that are more exact-o and less scalpel also shrink the price more than you know. They did not skimp on the quality and brand recognition they have fought for and earned over the years.
If you have never owned this or any other Aimpoint product before, it is time you stop doubting over the Aimpoint PRO and its superb functions. It is time for you to just go and get it. This is an optic for the long haul that you don’t have to sacrifice for, carry a million CR2032’s around for or get mad at not holding zero for. This will be the best new addition to your arsenal and a fantastic introduction to the world of Aimpoint.
Hunting pro would probably recommend this over 5 budget optics all day! And this is because of the fact that this product performs the way it is advertised. This is exactly what you should be expecting out of the equipments you include in your hunting gears.
