Launched in 2019 the CompM5s is one of the newer red dots from Aimpoint, but has been difficult to source. I had to wait quite a long time for mine.
The sight comes standard with flip-up lens covers, the front lens cover is black and the rear one is transparent.
The M5s has a low right AAA battery compartment, and the illumination is compatible with night vision devices. There are 4 NVD settings and 6 daylight settings.
The mount in the picture below is the Spuhr SM-1900 (€75) which gives you a height of 22 mm/0.866″, in relation to the Aimpoint Quick-Attach mount shown above. Which one would you prefer?
So far I’m happy with my CompM5s, the 2 MOA dot is one of the best I’ve seen. Did you try one yet?
