Aimpoint has received a 2011 Editor's Choice award from "On Target" magazine for its Patrol Rifle Optic (PRO) red-dot sight.
The Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic was honored due to the product's ability to fulfill tactical performance demands while remaining within the reach of law enforcement agencies facing restrictive budgets. This is the second year in a row that an Aimpoint sight has received this award.
"Aimpoint is honored to once again be recognized by On Target magazine," said Matt Swenson, Aimpoint's vice president of government sales. "It's important because this Editor's Choice award recognizes Aimpoint's purpose for bringing the PRO to the law enforcement market — to provide officers with the best technology available in a package that's both user and budget friendly."
The Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic provides rapid and accurate target acquisition, and is designed to withstand hard use, according to the company. The modular design allows the use of the same sight on the wide variety of law enforcement firearms. Product features include a 2 MOA dot, hardanodized 30mm tube, three-year constant-on battery life, QRP2 mount, and a transparent rear cover that allows the user to engage a target with the lens covers closed in an emergency situation.
