Aimpoint Inc., just unveiled the latest version of its Micro T optic line. The new Micro T-2 sight is a better-performing, more rugged version of the company’s existing Micro T-1.
The new optic will feature a new sight housing which allows the addition of front and rear protective flip covers and anti-reflective devices. There’s additional physical protection for the sight's adjustment turrets and increased ruggedness for the sight's internal electronic components.
The most important development in this new sight however, is enhanced optical performance, Aimpoint officials maintain.
A newly designed front lens, incorporating an “important breakthrough in reflective lens coatings,” provides a noticeable increase in the clarity and performance properties of the Micro T-2, Aimpoint officials maintain. This ensures that no matter what angle or conditions the shot presents, the user is able to get on target quickly and accurately.
"Instead of merely making improvements to an existing product, our development group started with a completely new design" said Brian Lisankie, President of Aimpoint Inc.
“In terms of the optical components, the Micro T-2 takes the level of performance available from a compact sight to an entirely new level. It also provides features and performance formerly available only in much larger optics."
The Micro T-2 can be mounted on nearly any individual weapon platform, and can be used with all existing mounts that fit the Micro T-1. The sight is compatible with all generations of night vision devices. It can operate for up to five years of constant-on use, using just one CR-2032 battery, and is waterproof to 25 meters.
The Micro T-2 will be available for shipment in mid-October and will be offered alongside the company's existing Micro T-1.
