About the Product
The Aimpoint® Micro H-1 was designed with the hunter in mind. These sights are the lightest red dot sights tough enough to carry the Aimpoint name. Since its introduction in 2007, the Micro H-1 has become a very popular hunting sight worldwide due to its size, light weight and robust build quality.
No matter what your mission, the size and weight of your equipment is a critical factor. With the Aimpoint® Micro T-1, Aimpoint has introduced an aiming system that provides the performance of our full-sized sights in the smallest package possible.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
AimPoint Micro H-1 (200018) 2 MOA W/Standard Mount
  • This is clearly the best red dot on the market for handguns. I use it on a heavy recoiling .44 magnum and it stands up to the abuse.
  • Excellent Aimpoint H1, great red dot optics, light weight, compact sight. I would highly recommend this optic for close quarter use.
  • It is very easy to see the dot and you can easily adjust the brightness. One really nice feature is the adjustment covers double as the needed tool to perform the adjustment.
  • My only criticism is that the printing inside the caps that tells you what direction to rotate it for a particular correction is so small I cannot read it without my reading glasses.
  • This is a top-quality, durable optic but I would not advise using this if you have very precise vision or a magnifier. The generation one aim points tend not to have a resolute dot. Mine showed up like a slash, looking almost like this the keyboard character "/" under no magnification.
AimPoint Micro T-1 (12417) 2 MOA with Standard Mount
  • What's most amazing about this optic is that it is extremely lightweight (basically 4 ounces?!?) but still maintains durability.
  • Great sight. Never had a single issue with an aimpoint. this was exactly what i needed.
  • Solid red dot in a tiny package. Easy to aquire with both eyes open. Holds it's zero while firing.
  • For moderately close range, this solution is amazing. I am really impressed.
  • This is my second T-1. The first one is on my 300BLK. The ease of sighting in and the power conservation are great features. If I need another red-dot, I know what I'll get.
  • Received a fake sight that was a airsoft clone. The dot could be changed between red and green. There was no serial number on the side of it and the aimpoint logo was in the wrong spot. The dial numbering for dot intensity was painted in either red or green when it should of been white.
  • Fake. Logo is printed on top, no serial number. I should have paid attention to the reviews.

What customers say about "Features"
AimPoint Micro H-1 (200018) 2 MOA W/Standard Mount
  • It is also paralax free. Wherever the dot is that's where you're going to hit. If you like the best, this is it.
  • Cant't see spend the extra money for the T-1 I will never use night vision with the Aimpoint micro. Its tough, water proof, shock proof and keeps it zero with the LaRue mount I use. I am on target out to 200 yards. Any greater distance I use another rifle and another optic.
  • This is the perfect scope as my arms get weaker and my eyesight less precise. Light weight and clear. High price is mostly forgotten with the joy of use.
  • The flaw: the red dot is not a dot. It's more of a diagonal line that grows in size with intensity setting. Real disappointment.
  • I purchased one to replace an EOTech 512. The Aimpoint H1 broke the first time I used it. While trying to sight it in the top adjustment seized up and would not move any more. You would think that with how much this item costs they would make it more durable than that.
AimPoint Micro T-1 (12417) 2 MOA with Standard Mount
  • This sight is significantly pricier than the Aimpoint Micro H-1, and the only difference is the first couple of brightness settings are for using NIGHTVISION for maximum tacticool experience. Still, you only buy one of these once.
  • This thing has a lot of strengths. One, it's easy to use. I find myself on setting 10 most of the time but in lower light situations 8 works as well (it goes up to 12 of brightness).
  • I love my aim point... After the recalls on EOTech I will only use aim point from now on... I mounted my aim point with a LaRue tactical on my SCAR-L for absolute cowitness and it works flawlessly!
  • When it comes to red dots, t1 is perfect for your AK front mount. T1 is same as H1 or R1 (you can just paint that one), HOWEVER, get it if you want to run Night Vision. This is perfect match for your PVS-14 people.
  • Wrong finish,Turrets are wrong. Brightness controls on left side? No aimpoint markings on optic.
  • Purchazed this trough one of Amazons vendors, at the begining all twelve settings work as advertized, Then about one hundred rounds later I turned it on at the range and to my surprise the first nine settings did not show a red dot only settings working 10,11 and12.
