The AcroBat Tool for Aimpoint Acro Red Dot Sights

    The company SuppressorTools already has a few mentions here at TFB. Typically they develop and manufacture tools for today’s most popular sound suppressors, but this one has nothing to do with suppressors. A lot of people use red dots and the Aimpoint ACRO is one of the newer ones on the market. Changing the battery without leaving a lot of scratches can be a bit tricky, so they developed a tool to help with this – the AcroBat.

    Here’s the description from the company:
    The AcroBat Tool!
    The Aimpoint Acro red dot sight has an aluminum battery cover that can be scratched when using a steel screwdriver tip, so we developed the Acro Battery Tool. It’s made from very robust injection mold quality ABS polymer, which won’t damage the battery cap’s finish AND a spare battery snaps into the handle. The hole at the end is for a parachute cord lanyard (not included).
    One Renata CR1255 battery new in factory packaging IS INCLUDED!

    The tool is clearly 3D printed, and you can see the build lines. The battery is made in Switzerland, the tool in the USA.

    The price is $20.00, which includes one Renata CR1255 battery.
