You get more than what you pay for
5 out of 5

Date: November 22, 2017
With this Aimpoint PRO, you get more than what you pay for. I switched to it from an Eotech 512. A65 because I loathed the 65MOA ring on the Eotech. It seemed to always lead to problems with my vision for the two eyes open shooting. Additionally, I found that the Eotech was a little low for me personally when mounted directly to the top rail. I can have had a riser for it, but the simple fact that I wasn't having much luck with the reticle and the elevation problem wasn't worth me getting a riser to see if this might help. To me personally, the reticle being harmonious with your eye, the shooting style, and the brain are the most crucial part of the optic. Once you get this, it's packaged in a plain white cardboard box. No Tupperware or pelican case for it. Just a plain white box with a few decals on it. Inside it a run of the mill foam. So why a box? Well, this was designed to be purchased and utilized by police departments. When Aimpoint introduced them, they were only purchasable by law enforcement. Most police departments, at least those I've been associated with, could care less what it comes it, they just need something that works. The paperboard box can help to keep the total cost of the item down. The boxes are supposed to be tossed when the optics are taken outside and mounted. Inside the box are an Allen key for carrying the riser off screw for using without a riser set up and one 1/3N Cell battery. First impressions of the bracket and optic together is that's one HUGE knob. It's a lot larger than it looks from the images, and it sticks out a fair amount. The riser looks fine, and of course being a gadget kind of guy I'm I'd to take it off to see how it'd look without it in place. You rapidly see that you need the riser, or you'll end up with a sore throat and cheek. The torque limiting bracket is in fact quite nice. In the past, I've seen quite a few upper rails that were permanently damaged by over rail attachments. Once you click it three times it's set, and secure. I tend to give it a click or two whenever I pick up my rifle or go out to the range only to ensure that it's nice and tight. The handle is small enough so that it doesn't interfere with your vision, and I've yet to get it get in the way when shooting. Over each of the bracket is very well done and wonderfully advanced design. The one thing that I did do was when I flashed the riser after experimenting, I place some Tite place on screws, only to make sure that the screws weren't able to back out on their own. While I don't foresee this as a problem, one can never be too cautious with something utilized as a defensive tool. I've removed this bracket and many times to test the return to zero, and every time I've not had any change within my own zero. Something to note however that's you'll have to reunite the mind to the rail slot to be able to keep zero, moving the mind on your railing is going to result in the change. If you plan to re indicator the mind on your railing, you may want to go back and zero your rifle and optic. Pre-mounted on the optic are a turret and battery cap keeper along with lens covers. The lens covers are of adequate quality, and seem to be of the same kind as Butler Creek, but seem to be better made. The cover which comes on the back is crystal clear, and the front cover is shameful. As you can get two clear covers, the combination of the clear and black will work to get a shooter that leaves the eyes open. Despite the fact that you can't see throughout the mind, the point will still superimpose on your vision, and you may even use the red dot. This may be utilized in a panic situation in which you've your rifle, and haven't flipped the front cover. The one thing that I did find though is that whenever shooting in this manner that my shots are hitting around one reduced. While not a point of impact alter if you're shooting farther which will open all the way up to 4 low at 100 yards. In a CQB situation, one low isn't going to make a difference, and will still affect the desired result on a torso sized target. Nonetheless, this is something you would like to practice and discover how much of a change in the impact you'll get. The cap keeper who comes along with the mind is rubber and will keep the caps for you. The keeper connects the battery cover and both of the adjustment turret covers. Therefore, if you're in the scope and remove your adjustment turret caps, they'll stay attached to the mind. That is a feature that is great you don't lose your limits. I've lost a fair share of the turrets in the past simply by placing them down and after that leaving without them. The adjustment turrets are 1/2MOA per click. The clicks were a little weak, but when I switched out of a screwdriver to some coins, I was able to sense them a ton better. This is most likely since the clicks transfer throughout metal coin is better than throughout the plastic handle of a screw driver. So I just used a coin now to make any alterations, and any one of the common coins you'll discover in your pocket will probably work. There is a total of 10 brightness settings on this optics. While four of them are for night vision devices, the other six are observable without nighttime vision. I do find that only the last three settings are observable, even. So there are three settings that appear to be missing in limbo, they're too bright for the night vision and not bright enough to be seen without nighttime vision. I tend to use the settings in the 9 and eight position. With this dot I've found that you wish to maintain the brightness as low as you can to your situation since the brighter the point, the more it bleeds from the dark. In addition to no real use when the brightest setting, or the ten sets. It's so bright that the point bleeds, and it illuminates the outside border of the optic around the glass. I currently have mine sighted in at 25yds to get CQB/Home defense work, but have taken out it at 300yds and was consistently hitting a 4MOA gong with no problems. The best approach to locate a zero for yourself is to locate the furthest thing you plan to shoot. Once you have that info, you can plug your information into a ballistic calculator and find out where the bullet will cross the line of sight. Therefore, in case you would like to zero to 300 meters the round you fire round will cross your line of sight in 36yds and after that arc back to the point of aim in 300yds. This gives you both a close in zero and a ranged zero in case you had been ever to want both. This typically referred to as a conflict zero or BZO. One characteristic which helped to sell me on the Aimpoint PRO was that it's watertight to 150ft. While I don't see myself taking my gun SCUBA diving anytime soon, the waterproof nature of this mind is a wonderful feature. I'm at the Pacific Northwest in which it tends to rain the majority of the year, so range time may include being in the rain. Sadly that's a fact of life here. It's an excellent comfort to know that at a hard rain which my mind won't be damaged and will continue to function as designed. Another favorable to it being watertight is that if it becomes dirty, dusty or otherwise fouled it could be removed from your rifle and rinsed off at the sink. I've done this once following exercise sessions where I was moving and running around a muddy range daily. It had been a wonderful relief of knowing that I was able to wash it away, and allow it dry and acrylic everything down. This is a wonderful optic for the purchase price. Usually, they could be had for about $400 dependant on where you purchase one from. You may locate them utilized in the $300 range. What you get with this optics is the same end Aimpoint quality, battery life and simplicity for a cost. While there are some differences in the battery life between the Aimpoint PRO and the CompM3, they aren't worth the additional money that you wind up spending in my opinion. A battery life of 30, 000 hours is fairly nice and overlooks to 3.7 years. The CompM3 has the battery life of 50, 000 hours, or 6.2 years. When a brand new battery runs you $6, I couldn't justify the added expense. Regardless if you're searching for a brand new optics with less footprint or something with incredible battery life this optics is amazing for your purchase price. You can't go wrong with this as a red dot sight. It works well; it's reliable and zero. Do not be deceived by the cost tag; this is a good optic that can stand up every bit as good as any other Aimpoint on there.

To me, the reticle being a good fit with your eye, shooting fashion and mind is the most crucial part of the optic. Once you get this, it's Simply packed in a plain white paperboard box. No fancy Tupperware or pelican case for it. Just a plain white box with a few stickers on it. Inside it some run of the mill foam. So why only a box?

The paperboard box also can help to keep the overall cost of the product down. The boxes are supposed to be tossed when the optics are taken out and mounted. First impressions of the mount and optics collectively are that's one HUGE knob. It's much bigger than it looks in the images, and it sticks out a fair amount. The riser looks good, and of course being the gadget type of man I'm I'd to take it off to see how it'd look without it in place. You rapidly see that you need the riser, or you'll end up with a sore neck and cheek. The torque limiting mount is in fact very nice. In the past, I've seen quite a few top rails that were permanently damaged by over tightening rail attachments. Once you click it three times it's set, and very secure. I tend To give it a click or two when I choose my gun up or go out to the range only to ensure that it's good and tight. The handle is small enough so that it doesn't interfere with your vision. Overall the mount is extremely well made and also a strikingly advanced design. The one thought that I did do was when I reinstalled the riser after tinkering, I place several Tite place on screws, only to make sure that the screws weren't able to back out on their own. While I don't foresee this as a problem, one can never be too cautious with something utilized as a defensive tool. I've removed this mount and many times to test the return to zero, and every time I haven't had any change in my zero. One thing to note however that's you'll have to return the optic into the rail that is the same slot to keep zero, by moving the optics over your railing will result in the change. If you plan to re-index the optics on your railing, you are going to need zero your rifle and optic again. Pre-mounted on the optic are a battery and a turret cap keeper and lens covers. The lens covers are of satisfactory quality, and seem to be of the same type as Butler Creek, but seem to be better made. The cover which comes on the back is transparent, and the front cover is black. As you can get two covers, the combination of the very clear and black will probably work for an arrow that leaves both eyes open. Though you can't see throughout the optic, the dot will superimpose on your vision, and you may still use the red dot. This may be used in a panic situation where you've your rifle, and haven't flipped the front cap. The one thing that I did find though is that whenever shooting in this manner that my shots are hitting around one at 25 meters. While not a big point of effect change, if you're shooting farther, that'll open all the way up to 4 reduced at 100 yards. In a CQB situation, one reduced isn't going to make a big difference and will influence the desired result on a torso sized target. Nonetheless, this is something you wish to the clinic and find out how much of a change in effect you will get. The cap keeper which is included with the optic is fine rubber and will keep the caps for you. The keeper connects theboth of the adjustment turret covers and battery covers . Therefore, if you're at the scope and remove your adjustment turret caps, they'll remain attached to the optic. That is a feature that is nice so that you don't lose your limits. I've lost a fair share of the turrets in the past simply by setting them down and after that leaving without them. The turrets are 1\/2MOA per click asdjustable. The clicks were a soft, but when I switched from a screwdriver into a coin, I was able to feel them much better. This is most likely since the clicks transfer throughout metal coin is better than throughout the plastic handle of a screwdriver. So I just used the coins now to make any adjustments, and any one of the standard coins you'll find in your pocket will work. There is a total of 10 brightness settings on this optics. The last three settings are visible, even in full darkness. So there are three settings that appear to be lost in limbo. I tend to use the settings in the 8 and nine position. With this dot I've found that you would like to keep the light as low as you can for your circumstances since the brighter the point, the more it bleeds from the dark. Also to no real use if the brightest setting, or the ten sets. It's so gorgeous that the point bleeds, and it illuminates the outer edge of the optics around the glass. The very best way to find a good zero for yourself is to see the furthest you plan to shoot. Once you have that info, you can connect your data to a ballistic calculator and find out where the bullets will cross your line of sight. So if you wish to zero to 300 yards the round you fire round will cross your line of sight in 36yds and after that arc back to the point of aim in 300yds. One characteristic that helped to sell me on the Aimpoint PRO was that it's water-proof to 150ft. While I don't see myself taking my rifle SCUBA diving anytime soon, the water-proof nature of the optic is a nice feature. I'm from Northwest Pacific, where it tends to rain the majority of the year, so the time of the lineup might include being out while it is raining. Sadly that's just a fact of life here. It's a great comfort to know that in a hard rain that my optics won't be damaged and will continue to work as designed. Another favorable to it being water-proof is that when it becomes dirty, dusty or otherwise fouled it may be removed from your rifle and rinsed off in the sink.

This is quite an excellent optic for the cost. Usually, they could be had for about $400 dependant on where you order one from. You may locate them utilized in the $300 range. What do you get with this mind is the same end Aimpoint quality, battery simplicity, and life for a cost. While there are several differences in the battery lifetime between the Aimpoint PRO along with the CompM3, they aren't worth the additional money that you find yourself spending in my opinion. A battery life of 30, 000 hours is relatively lovely and translates to 3.7 years. When a brand new battery will run you $6, that I couldn't justify the added expense. Although if you're searching for a brand new optic with less mess or something with a phenomenal battery life, this optics is impressive for the price. You can't go wrong with this as a red dot sight. It functions well, is dependable and retains a zero. Do not be fooled by the price tag; this is an optic that can stand up every bit as great as any other Aimpoint on there.

Aimpoint PRO is a Great value
5 out of 5

Great value for the purchaseprice. The optic presents a dot at the reticle which gives you a clear target acquisition. Sits about 3 on the top railing so during close quarter participation of about 10-15 you will wish to target about 3 over your target point when zeroed at 100 metres. I made consistent on target shots of 100-130 yds that could have been much more strenuous using steel flip up sights. For all those not knowledgeable about the Aimpoint PRO optics, this isn't a magnification optics for long distance, but should serve well for up to perhaps 300 yds.

They had the best price I could find, but I'd never heard of them. I can now say that they will be the first place I will check for future optics needs. The shipping was fast and reasonably priced to Alaska. Only complaint is no tracking number. As for the aimpoint itself, I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but aimpoint quality is legendary.

I really like the Aimpoint Pro, it looks great and operates easily. I love the way it attached to the rail and the way the knob clicks 3 times to let you know you have tightened it enough. I highly recommend this scope, the only reason I am giving it 4 stars is that I still haven't had a chance to shoot with it and zero it in, but I can't wait!

This is my second PRO... There is a reason Aimpoint is what the LEO & Military use. Solid zero, waterproof, shock resistant (I'd say shockproof). This is a red dot that will go the distance. All zeroed up there is no doubt where my rounds are going...
