The essential Picatinny base permits easy and quick attachment to almost any rail. This is one of the factors that gained the T1 an “Easy to Set Up” positive review from users. For added reliability and compatibility, the mount is set to the sight body so it may be able to absorb any recoil.

The Aimpoint T1 is built with a non-magnifying 1x parallax free optic, which provides unlimited eye relief. Aimpoint T1 also has 7 daylight and 6 night vision settings along with an extra bright that one can use with laser protection glasses or when in a location with bright sunlight.

It can also be utilized piggybacked on a bigger magnifying, night vision, or thermal optics. It can also work as a stand-alone or separate sight. This will definitely work fine with sports shooters and hunters that may depend on vision compatibility.
In terms of power, since Aimpoint T1 is offered in a smaller built, it utilizes a small battery as well. It uses the CR2032, a coin-sized battery, which is readily accessible at any drug stores and hardwares.
