Aimpoint has been trailing a new variant of the Aimpoint Micro H-2 with a very large 9 MOA red dot designed for competition use. The H-2 is the successor to the H-1. It is an ultralight red dot sight designed for hunters in mind and because of the its size and weight is suitable for long guns as well as revolvers and bows. It also notable features built in transparent flip up covers.

Aimpoint unveiled this sight during the Shotgun World competition that is being held in Sweden this week. Aimpoint is sponsoring the event. I was told that it is still in testing but will be used by Swedish IPSC champion Johan Hansen during the IPSC World Shoot in Italy later this year. If the evaluation goes well ,and shooters like it, it will go into production.

Thanks to our Swedish Spy for the info.

    No eye or ear protection on the hunter.
    Aimpoint are you even trying?

      @brad I hunt and walk around with ear and eye pro. I'd prefer to not go deaf, and I don't want dust or anything to get in my eyes while I'm shooting. I'd rather be safe than anything else, really.

    Whoever welded the optic rail on that Saiga-12 should be ashamed. There's no cleanup or finish. Welding on the front trunnion of an AK is also such a great idea. It's fantastic to have that much heat just inches from the locking lugs.

      @andrey kireev I think you may have misunderstood. My comment was about welding the rails/optic mounting stuff on with a weld on the front trunnion itself. The locking lugs are very close to the weld and that high of heat levels can alter the temper of the steel. Plus, it's just not a nice looking weld job.
