WHY AIMPOINT® SIGHTS
Because Aimpoint® sights can be
used with both eyes open, your field of view is unlimited at any
distance. Eye relief is also unlimited, so your eye’s position behind
the sight does not affect how well you see the target or the aiming
The bright red dot is very easy to see and your eye instinctively
aligns it with your target. Unlike the lenses in cheaper red dot sights,
Aimpoint’s lenses transmit nearly 100% of all wavelengths of light. This
means that colors appear natural and are not distorted. Because of
Aimpoint’s unique double lens system, the sights are parallax-free,
meaning that no matter where on the lens you see the dot reflected, your
point of aim will be your point of impact.
Shots that have to be fired with little time to think are always
difficult. At these times it doesn’t matter if the range is short or
long or if the target is standing still or moving. It is in such
situations that Aimpoint proves its superiority over all other sights.
This is how the Aimpoint principle works: the red light from
the LED is reflected back to your eye from the front lens (double lens).
All other light passes through unobstructed.
The difference between Aimpoint’s solution…
Regardless of where you position your eye, the re flection of the LED is
always parallel with the sight’s optical axis thanks to the design of
the double lens and its light refraction property. The points of aim and
impact always coincide.
…and other sights.
The conventional lens used in the majority of red dot sights gives an
angled reflection when the dot is not centered on the lens. The farther
from the center of the lens you have the dot, the greater is the
deviation from the optical axis. In this case the point of aim and the
point of impact can never be the same.
