Intro To Rifle Optics


Whenever I am outfitting a new rifle with new optics, I have two major criteria. The first one is the obvious – application. What is the rifle to be used for? What kind of distance and precision are required? What kind of shooting entails? For example, shooting high-speed drills at 50-yards in a 3-Gun match is quite different than shooting a rutting bull on a crimson ridgeline during a fall elk hunt. The second criteria revolves around budget. We are spoiled for choice here with countless options ranging from wallet-friendly glass all the way up to world-class precision optics. Matching your must-have features with cost will narrow down those options.

Aimpoint Introduces ACRO Pistol Sight

From Aimpoint:

Malmö, Sweden – June 2018 – Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in red dot sighting
technology, is proud to introduce their new line of red dot sights, the Aimpoint® ACRO™ (Advanced
Compact Reflex Optic) Series. The unique small sight design of the Aimpoint® ACRO series electronic
red-dot sight was developed for use on pistols and other weapon platforms.
For many years, end users have requested a small enclosed red dot sight to fit on handguns. Utilizing
Aimpoint’s advanced sight technology, Aimpoint is proud to launch the first of its kind to the market. The
Acro P-1, offers an enclosed system that is much more durable than those with open systems. It is also
the only sight in its size category fully tested for shock, vibration, temperature span and other
environmental stress.
The Acro P-1 optic can perform under tough conditions while adding negligible size and weight to the
equipment. Tested with a minimum of 20,000 rounds on a .40 cal pistol slide, this small optic has proven
itself in its size category as the leader in ruggedness and reliability.
Designed for direct integration onto pistol slides, the Aimpoint Acro P-1 sight can also be used as a
backup sight for magnifying scopes, personal defense weapons, and on any system where a small red
dot is applicable.
The Acro P-1 sight is a 1X (non-magnifying) parallax-free optic that features a 3.5 minute of angle
(MOA) red dot for fast target acquisition. It is fully submersible to 25 meters and allows continuous
operation for over 1 year on a single CR1225 battery. Dot intensity is adjusted with side push buttons.
“The development of the Acro P-1 sight sets a new standard for compact pistol mounted reflex optics,”
said Aimpoint AB President Lennart Ljungfelt. “The commitment we make to our customers is to develop
the highest performing red-dot sights available. The Acro P-1 optic fulfills that commitment by providing
the lightest and most rugged enclosed red-dot sight in its size category on the market.”
All Aimpoint products are manufactured in Sweden, and Aimpoint AB is headquartered in Malmö,
Sweden. For more information on Aimpoint or other Aimpoint products, please visit our webpage at
