FEATURED IN PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENTS
Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in electronic red dot sighting technology, has announced the introduction of an new sight designed specifically for use on law enforcement firearms. This new product, known as the Patrol Rifle Optic (PRO), expands upon the company’s already proven designs and focuses these features into a sight that is ready for duty.
Designed with input from a distinguished group of current and former professionals, the Patrol Rifle Optic incorporates many never before seen features to maximize this sight’s performance within the challenging conditions faced by modern law enforcement. A hard-anodized 30mm tube was utilized, enclosing a high efficiency circuit that allows the sight to be turned on and left on for up to three years using a single battery. The front lens utilizes a unique band-pass coating, which allows the sight to be used with all generations of night vision devices. The modular QRP2 mount includes a removable spacer that indexes the sight at the optimal height for co-witness with the standard iron sights on AR15/M16/M4 Carbine style weapons. This spacer can be removed to enable the use of the sight on police shotguns or sub-machineguns. The QRP2 mount also incorporates a torque-limiting twist knob that provides the optimal level of pressure on the rail while completely eliminating the possibility of over-tightening. Both the front and rear lenses are recessed within the sight body to provide protection against impact damage, scratches, and fingerprints. Flip covers are included to further protect the lenses, and a transparent rear lens cover is utilized allowing the user to engage a target with the lens covers closed in an emergency situation. A two Minute of Angle (2 MOA) red dot is utilized to allow maximum accuracy at all distances and under all environmental conditions.
“The Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic is the perfect choice for law enforcement and federal agencies as every feature of this sight is designed to get an officer on target as fast as possible, and the modular design allows use of the same sight on the wide variety of law enforcement firearms.” said Brian Lisankie, President of Aimpoint Inc. “By choosing this optic, an agency is making the smart choice - giving their officers the best technology available in a package that is user friendly and ready to go at all times, while keeping training time and maintenance to a minimum.”
