Aimpoint unveiled its Patrol Rifle Optic today at a SHOT Show presser, calling it an affortable option designed for the law enforcement officer.
"The Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic 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," according to Brian Lisankie, Aimpoint's president.
The Patrol Rifle Optic's hard-anodized 30mm tube encloses a higher-efficiency circuit that allows the sight to be turned on and left on for up to three years on a single battery. The front lens utilizes a band-pass coating that 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 for absolute co-witness with standard iron sights on AR-type carbines. This spacer can be removed to enable the use of the sight on police shotguns or submachine guns.
The sight's front and rear lenses are recessed within the body and flip covers further protect the lenses. A transparent rear lens cover is utilized that allows the user to engage a target with lens covers closed in emergency situations. The sight uses a two Minute of Angle (MOA) red dot for maximum accuracy at a variety of distances and environmental conditions.
The Patrol Rifle Optic is available only through the company's authorized law enforcement dealers. The sight retails for $440.
