Aim­point launches train­ing aid for shot­gun shoot­ers

Sporting Shooter - - The Marketplace -

Swedish op­tics brand Aim­point has launched its new Mi­cro S1 red dot sight, de­vel­oped es­pe­cially for use with a shot­gun. The red dot sight claims to help shoot­ers in sev­eral ways: it fo­cuses the eye on the right spot, while giv­ing the shooter max­i­mum con­tact with the tar­get, and en­sures a good head po­si­tion on the stock. As a train­ing aid, it gives the shooter the unique op­por­tu­nity to see ex­actly where their shot will land.

The par­al­lax-free Mi­cro S1 has a mounting sys­tem that al­lows the sight to be po­si­tioned with the low­est op­ti­cal axis, which is re­in­forced with car­bon fi­bre to en­sure a light­weight con­struc­tion. The sight can be placed at any point along a ven­ti­lated rib, and is pro­vided with in­ter­change­able adap­tor plates to al­low for most rib sizes.

Com­pact and low pro­file, the sight has a 6 MOA red dot, so the shooter is pro­vided with fast tar­get ac­qui­si­tion and high vis­i­bil­ity. The Mi­cro S1 has 12 in­ten­sity set­tings, in­clud­ing a high max­i­mum light in­ten­sity set­ting to cope with bright light con­di­tions, and is com­pletely en­closed in a pro­tec­tive wa­ter­proof hous­ing.

Easy to use, the Mi­cro S1 can be ze­roed to en­sure that point of im­pact re­mains true, and has an 18mm aper­ture. The length of the sight is just 63mm and the width 43mm with a height of just 41mm. The sight takes a 3V Lithium bat­tery and weighs just 100g in­clud­ing the bat­tery, which has a life of 50,000 hours or five years of con­tin­u­ous use.
