The new Micro H-2 is expected to be available in August 2015. Checkout for more info.

Chantilly, VA – May 11, 2015 – Aimpoint, the originator and world leader in electronic red dot sighting technology for forty years, has announced the addition of the new Micro H-2 sight to the company’s commercial product line. The Micro H-2 will be available for shipment in August 2015, and will be offered alongside the company’s existing Micro H-1 product.

Since its introduction in 2007, the Aimpoint Micro sight has become a popular hunting sight worldwide due to its lightweight and compact size, durability, and extremely long battery life. Product reviews with hunters and sport shooters identified a series of desired product enhancements that have now been added to this new product. These changes include: a new sight housing which allows the addition of front and rear protective flip covers, additional physical protection for the sight’s adjustment turrets, and increased ruggedness for the sight’s internal electronic components.

The most significant developments in the Micro H-2 however, are the advanced optical lenses that allow for even better light transmission and provide a noticeable increase in the clarity and performance properties of the sight. This ensures a more distinct and clearer dot in all conditions and situations.

“The Aimpoint Micro has become the worldwide standard for compact reflex sights” says Matt Swenson, Vice President of Sales. “With the sight’s new design, the Micro H-2 takes the level of performance available from a compact sight to an entirely new level.”

The Micro H-2 can be mounted on nearly any rifle, shotgun, handgun or crossbow, and can be used with most existing mounts that fit the Micro H-1 including the Blaser saddle mount. The sight can also be mounted to a larger magnified scope with a 30mm or 34mm scope adapter giving the hunter ability to hunt at both short and long distances while providing faster target acquisition. The Micro H-2 can operate for up to five years of constant-on use, using just one CR-2032 battery, and is waterproof.

    Human hunting sight

      A LOT of people here use the H-1 for hunting on their Blaser rifles. Hunting Moose and Deer.

      • RunninMoose96

        Uhhh, I highly doubt that A LOT of people use Aimpoints to hunt Moose and Deer. Actually, I would consider that to be an extremely exaggerated statement. If you can get me a figure then I’ll believe you.

        • G0rdon_Fr33man

          I can only give you personal observations from particulat kinds of hunts here in Norway, and the Blaser straight pull/Aimpoint-combo seems popular. For when you do driven hunts at 100 m or less, usually in a team with dogs…

          • hyltorn

            popular here in Sweden to (it is a Swedish company after all)

            popular for the dog handlers to because they only shoot close distance, and for those tracking traffic injured animals for the cops to

          • hipointguy69

            Never heard of it. Here in the red, white and blue, we like sniper scopes.

            Says a lot really.

        Nope, never seen a non-magnified optic, let alone a H1 or other brand micro-red dot sight on any hunting rifle here in western MT among hunters. Hog hunters in Texas, sure. But moose and deer, nope.

        • G0rdon_Fr33man

          Driven hunts on hogs here in Europe. General hunting practise suggest you shoot your prey on under 100 meters, and if the dogs and the team does the job, the moose should come right to ya.

          You need to get outside your little corner of “the west.” Plenty of coyote callers use red dot sights. When you call in coyotes under 100 yards regularly, a red dot set is a blessing, where a magnified optic over 4X can be a curse.

          My brother and father run red dots on two of their elk and deer rifles for the brushy, wet side of western Oregon. Of course, they also have 3.5-12X on their rifles for hunting clear cuts and when they draw tags on the more open east side of the state.

            That little corner known as the rocky mountains? Also, do you take your pest control guns out for elk and moose like you do for coyotes and hogs? Do you know lots of people who use a RDS for hunting deer and elk? Do you know folks in western MT who hunt deer and elk with a RDS? No, you don’t. I don’t either, that’s why I said “I” have never seen them used for any hunting here…in my little corner. Is Montana not as rich in hunting tradition as ANY place on the planet? There sure are lots of outfitters getting rich off of world travelers taking their elk, moose, grizzly/black bears, and tons of other game from my little corner, let alone a majority of the MT population. I’d say that makes my little corner fairly qualified. lol, western oregon? such a hot spot for game. Sure you’re not in the little corner bro?

  • nicknick

    Is there a price yet?

  • Beelzebub

    Pardon my ignorance but what makes differentiates this as a hunting optic versus a typical aimpoi nt….?

    • G0rdon_Fr33man

      NV compatible. 2 things, the brightness setting and the lens coating. You can hurt NV electronics with extended use without that particular lens cover.
