Aimpoint launches new product addition to 9000 series


Aimpoint, the originator and world leader in electronic red dot sighting technology, has announced the addition of a 9000 series sight to the company’s product line – the new 9000SC-NV.

Ever since their introduction in 2005, market response to Aimpoint’s 9000 series sights has been very strong, with wide acceptance by the hunting and sport shooting communities. The 9000SC’s combination of a high quality optic at an affordable price has kept this sight in high demand.

During a product review session involving experienced users, it was determined that a hunting sight with night vision compatibility was desired. As a result, Aimpoint is proud to announce that the 9000SC-NV red dot has been added to the 9000 series of sights.

“The launch of this new product has been requested by many of our customers for some time now. More and more states now allow hunting with night vision equipment, says Brian Lisankie, President at Aimpoint, Inc. “This is the first hunting sight we’ve offered with night vision compatibility. Night vision technology is well used in our products sold to the Law Enforcement and military users. We are excited to see how this new product will develop in the hunting market”.

The 9000SC-NV is a 1X (non-magnifying) parallax-free optic that features a 2 minute of angle (MOA) red dot for fast target acquisition. It is waterproof and utilizes Aimpoint’s state-of-the-art ACET diode technology, allowing continuous operation for over 5 years on a single 2L76 or DL1/3N battery.

The 9000SC-NV offers maximum performance and reliability at a user friendly price, just as the rest of the 9000 series.

Aimpoint Launches FCS 12 Fire Control System


Aimpoint, the innovator and world leader in electronic red-dot sighting technology has unveiled a new Fire Control System for shoulder fired rocket launchers (such as the Carl Gustav) and crew served weapons like the Mk 19 and GMG automatic grenade launchers. This announcement of the Aimpoint FCS12 follows several years of intensive product development and initial deliveries and advanced field trials have been conducted on a contract with the Swedish Defense Forces.

The Aimpoint FCS12 is comprised of a sight module incorporating an 1550 nm infrared Laser Range Finder, a ballistic computer with stored algorithms for different munitions, and a state-of-the-art heads-up display. The system can be controlled via a digital user interface on the sight housing, or by using a wireless remote control module that allows the operator to control the most important functions of the system without taking their eyes off of the target or changing their grip. The FCS12 is compatible with all generations of Night Vision Equipment, and is powered by a replaceable battery pod containing six AA size batteries. The unit is completely solid state, has no moving parts, and is environmentally sealed and hardened for combat use. Despite the advanced features and technical complexity of this system, operation in a combat situation is extremely user friendly and intuitive. In most cases, the operator only needs to push one button before pulling the trigger of the weapon.

“The FCS12 is truly a unique product on the market, and the development of this system has forced Aimpoint to take several huge steps in terms of our research and development capabilities in order to meet the very high standards that we established for this project” said Lennart Ljungfelt, President of Aimpoint AB. “The FCS12 allows a dramatic increase in first-shot hit probability, and significantly reduces the time required for a weapon crew to engage a target. The addition of this advanced fire control system immediately raises the overall effectiveness of nearly any weapon system considerably.”

Aimpoint Launches New Optic Package For Blaser® Rifles


Chantilly, VA – Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in electronic red dot sighting technology, has announced a new sight and mount combination designed specifically for use on Blaser rifles. The highly successful Aimpoint Micro H-1 (2 MOA dot) sight has been paired with a high quality steel saddle mount manufactured by Blaser to create this exciting new package.

Aimpoint’s previous Micro H-1 for Blaser rifles utilized a short mount that locked into just one of the two mounting points featured on Blaser rifle barrels. Based on repeated requests from the user community, a longer mount that utilizes both of the mounting points was developed and tested. Quick detach levers were added to allow this sight to be mounted and dismounted quickly, and without loss of zero. This mount is suitable for use on Blaser rifles, including the R93 and R8 models.

“The Blaser straight pull bolt system is extremely fast, and we like to think that the Aimpoint Micro H-1 makes it even faster” said Dave Pasienski, Director of Commercial Sales at Aimpoint Inc. “The repeatable nature of the Blaser mounting system allows a shooter to quickly change their optics without losing zero. Having this compact Micro H-1 in your kit allows a hunter to quickly swap their magnified scope for the speed and both-eyes-open aiming offered by an Aimpoint sight before moving into cover to stalk or track dangerous game. This is an advantage you cannot afford to be without.”

The extremely compact Micro H-1 offers up to five years of constant on power from a single CR2032 battery, and has 12 brightness settings for optimal performance in any light conditions. This sight is completely waterproof, and has been designed to stand up to any extremes in temperature, shock, and rough handing that you will encounter in the field. The new Micro H-1 Blaser mount combination is available as a complete package from all Aimpoint Dealers, as well as from Blaser Dealers such as EuroOptic.

Aimpoint Announce 2 MOA Micro T-1

Aimpoint, the originator and world leader in electronic red dot sighting technology, has announced the addition of a 2 MOA Micro T-1 and Micro H-1 sights to the company’s product line. These new 2 MOA versions are available immediately, and will be offered alongside the current Micro series sights including the 4 MOA Micro T-1 and Micro H-1.

Since its introduction in 2007, the Aimpoint Micro T-1 has become the worldwide standard for compact reflex sights for professional use. Law enforcement and military end users have embraced this sight for its compact size, extreme durability, and extremely long battery life. During a 2009 product review session involving professional end users, it was decided that a smaller sized red dot reticule was desired. As a result, Aimpoint is now proud to announce that the Micro sights with the 2 minute-of-angle (MOA) red dot have been added to the Micro series of sights.

“The launch of this new product required a great deal of engineering and testing to make it possible. On a sight this compact, it isn’t as simple as dropping a 2 MOA emitter into the existing package” said Ralf Wiklund, Vice President and Technical Manager at Aimpoint AB. “This modification required a sizeable investment in new technology in order to make the new product possible, but this new technology has also opened some new doors to us in terms of future product possibilities”.

Both the Micro T-1 and Micro H-1 sights are experiencing high demand from end-users who understand the performance benefits that a high-quality compact red dot sight offers, as well as the fact that these sights feature a dependable design that will not be affected by weather or severe environmental conditions. Many compact sights offered by competitors feature an “open” design which can allow the functional parts of the sight to be blocked by dust, sand, mud, blood or even rainwater. The sealed design of the Aimpoint Micro sight ensures that no matter what the conditions, no foreign matter will ever come between the emitter and the lens, and this also makes the product absolutely waterproof to 25 meters.

The Micro family of sights can be mounted on nearly any individual weapon platform including: pistols, carbines, personal defense weapons, and sub-machineguns, and the Micro T-1 is compatible with all generations of night vision devices. The Micro sights are also ideal for use with Aimpoint’s wide range of accessories including the 3X Magnifier, and Concealed Engagement Unit (CEU). Both the Micro T-1 and H-1 can operate for up to 5 years of constant- on use, using just one CR-2032 battery.
