  • Why is the rubber of the lens covers and/or of the rubber cover greyish?

    To reach maximum protection level for all weather conditions, wax is added into the rubber mixture.

    The wax will slowly migrate to the surface of the part. During frequent use, this wax will be used up completely and not noticed by the user. For long time storage, the wax will not be used up as frequently and will be seen as a grey film on the surface.

    To restore to its original condition, please hand wash in warm dishwater.

  • What is the difference between the different CompM models?

    The principle is the same in all Aimpoint® CompML and CompM sights. You always look with both eyes open, there is no eye relief to take into consideration and they are parallax free.

    The CompM is the first generation of CompM sights, the CompM4 is the fourth generation. The CompM3 is still in use.

    The CompML models are not compatible with NVD (night vision devices).

    The CompM models are compatible with all generation of NVDs.

    The first, second and third generation of CompM sights are mounted with one mounting ring for either weaver or Picatinny rails, and they use one DL 1/3N battery.

    The CompM4 sights have a patented integrated mount for Picatinny rail in the housing and don’t require an extra mounting ring, and they use a AA battery.

  • What is the difference between the Aimpoint® hunting products?

    The Aimpoint® sight portfolio for hunting and sport shooting contains the 9000, Hunter and Micro models, they have different lengths and designs.

    The principle of the sights is the same for all models. No magnification, aim with both eyes open, no specific eye relief to take into consideration. The different lengths of the sights are for different lengths of the action of the firearm you mount it on.

    The 9000 and Hunter series of sights are mounted to the firearm with 2 rings. The CompC3 uses one wide ring, and the Micro H-1 has an integrated mount for Weaver rail in the housing and don’t require an extra mounting ring.

  • Is the front lens of your Aimpoint® sight tilted?

    Don't panic, it's the way it should be.

    The red dot in your Aimpoint® sight is generated by a Light Emitting Diode (LED), projecting red light onto the inside of the front lens.

    In order to achieve exceptional optical performance, the front lens has to be tilted in relation to the placement of the LED. On some of our sights this is more apparent than on others depending on the design of the optical system.
