Video: The Aimpoint Red Dot Sight – For Sport Shooting

    Make sure you watch the first 20-30 seconds of this video from Aimpoint – it’s full of action!

    It features real in-competition clips from IPSC Practical Shooting with handgun, rifle and shotgun by some of the World’s Best Shooters.

    I spot at least three shooters holding current IPSC World Shoot medals.

    I spot a few JP Rifles in 223 and RnR Target Saiga Shotguns, as well as a modified Akdal 1919.

    The video then continues into explaining how the technology behind the Aimpoint works, with 2 and 4 MOA dots.

    In case you ever wondered how the Aimpoint Red Dot works, make sure you watch the full video.

    I does look a bit awkward (with special effects rather than real gun fire) and slow compared to real time, but it’s for demonstration purposes. You don’t see any ejecting brass or movement from the bolt, but I think you’ll get the idea.

    I use Aimpoint Micros on my rifles as secondary side mounted sight, or Micros or CompM4s as main. I use the H1 or H2 as it gives me 10 light settings. I don’t have any NVG so it makes no sense other than Tacti-cool to use the T2. The further away the rifle is set up to shoot, the smaller the dot I chose, i.e. 2 MOA for main optics.

    For my Molot Vepr 12 shotgun I use the H2.

    When it comes to handguns I have tried the Aimpoint Micro, but it’s not for me.

    Like I mentioned, don’t miss the beginning of the video.
