Geissele Aimpoint mount and charging handle

    Soldier Systems Daily has some good coverage of two of Geissele’s new products from The Great American Outdoors Show. Both of these are apart of the companies diversifying line of “Super” products. The first one is from the same line of mounts that will support the Trijicon MRO, but this is for the T1/T2 series of Aimpoint red dot sights. It differs in shape and can only be mounted with the Aimpoint products as opposed to the Trijicon sights. It is apart of the Super Transition T1 Series and is made from 7075-T6 aluminum, and is being offered in two different heights, co-witness and 1/3 co-witness. This is to allow the use of different types of image magnifiers on the same rail system with the Aimpoint sight. I would assume that multiple colors will be offered, but it seemed like they only had a goldish tint finish at the show, something like bronze. No word on MSRP yet.

    The second accessory is also made from 7075-T6 aluminum, and is their Super Charging Handle. It was offered in the similar bronze finish from above, but also in a flat black like most charging handles are these days. It appears that it is ambidextrous, in that the right side handle activates the release of the charging handle as well as the left side. No word on MSRP.
