Why an Aimpoint Red Dot Sight?

Why an Aimpoint Red Dot Sight?


Chantilly, VA –-(AmmoLand.com)- The Aimpoint Philosophy When the time comes to shoot, there should be absolutely no question that you can count on your sight to perform.

We believe that a weapon sight should simplify aiming while meeting the highest possible requirements for reliability and ruggedness. We know that conditions in the field place extreme demands on your equipment, so we design and test Aimpoint products to stand up to any conditions you are likely to encounter.

We also design our products to operate constantly for years on a single battery so your sight will always be ready whenever you need it.

Why a Red Dot Sight?
To be successful, shooters must be able to aim accurately and quickly under a wide variety of conditions. On a shooting range, there is plenty of time to take aim, but in the real world, everything is in fast motion. Add rough terrain, foul weather, poor light and high levels of stress and even the most experienced marksman will be put to the test.

Red dot sights are superior to iron sights and magnifying scopes in several ways. Using these other types of aiming devices require that the shooter’s focus leaves the target. With iron sights, shooters must align the rear and front sights with the target. Magnified scopes slow you down. Your field of vision is severely limited, and locating your target through a tube with one eye closed wastes valuable time and destroys your situational awareness.

The single red dot has been proven to be the fastest type of reticule to place on target, and provides the greatest increase in hit probability on moving targets. Red dot sights allow you to remain focused on the target. Shooting with both eyes open means that you remain in touch with what is going on around you, and will never again miss an important shot because your scope was on the wrong magnification!

Why an Aimpoint Red Dot Sight?
Place the dot on your target – from any angle Aimpoint sights are parallax-free, which means that the visible dot remains parallel to the bore of your weapon no matter what angle your eye is in relation to the sight. This means you never have to worry about centering the dot inside the sight. When the dot is on target, so are you. You will be able to get on target fast, and can forget about being challenged by bad light or moving targets.

All conditions – Anywhere
Aimpoint sights work in all light conditions from the darkness of the forest before dawn to bright mountain sunlight. They are fully submersible so you never have to worry about rain or immersion. Aimpoint sights are developed and tested to be used in any weather conditions, from the sub-zero temperatures of the Arctic to the heat and humidity of the tropics.

Whether you have a rifle, shotgun, handgun, black powder rifle or bow, Aimpoint has a sight for you.
