Why Aimpoint® Sights
Because Aimpoint® sights can be used with both eyes open, your field of view is unlimited at any distance. Eye relief is also unlimited, so your eye’s position behind the sight does not affect how well you see the target or the aiming point.
The bright red dot is very easy to see and your eye instinctively aligns it with your target. Unlike the lenses in cheaper red dot sights, Aimpoint’s lenses transmit nearly 100% of all wavelengths of light. This means that colors appear natural and are not distorted. Because of Aimpoint’s unique double lens system, the sights are parallax-free, meaning that no matter where on the lens you see the dot reflected, your point of aim will be your point of impact.
Shots that have to be fired with little time to think are always difficult. At these times it doesn’t matter if the range is short or long or if the target is standing still or moving. It is in such situations that Aimpoint proves its superiority over all other sights.
This is how the Aimpoint principle works: the red light from the LED is reflected back to your eye from the front lens (double lens). All other light passes through unobstructed.
The difference between Aimpoint’s solution… Regardless of where you position your eye, the re flection of the LED is always parallel with the sight’s optical axis thanks to the design of the double lens and its light refraction property. The points of aim and impact always coincide.
…and other sights. The conventional lens used in the majority of red dot sights gives an angled reflection when the dot is not centered on the lens. The farther from the center of the lens you have the dot, the greater is the deviation from the optical axis. In this case the point of aim and the point of impact can never be the same.
