Aimpoint has announced the introduction of a new sight designed specifically for modern sporting rifles such as the AR-15: the Aimpoint Carbine Optic (ACO).
Developed exclusively with the modern sporting rifle owner in mind, the ACO is ready to mount and use directly out of the box. It pairs a 30mm aluminum alloy sight tube with a fixed height mount designed to provide absolute co-witness with AR-15 backup iron sights. A two minute of angle (2 MOA) red dot is utilized to allow target acquisition speed and accuracy at all distances.
"The Aimpoint Carbine Optic is the smart choice for today's modern sporting rifle owner," said Brian Lisankie, President of Aimpoint Inc. "By choosing this optic, shooters get a premium Aimpoint sight at an extremely friendly price point. If you own an AR-15 rifle, the ACO is exactly what you need to complete the package."
A series of branded accessories, such as front and rear flip covers, an anti-reflection filter, and spare battery holders are available from dealers, and allow will users to customize the sight to fit their specific requirements.
The Aimpoint Carbine Optic ships with an MSRP of $393, and will be available from Aimpoint dealers in mid-to late October.
