What customers say about "Key Specs"
AimPoint PRO (12841) Patrol Rifle Optic
  • Very nice product i love it. Reticle is sharp and crisp.
  • Retains zero even if you remove it from your rifle thanks to the tension knob.
  • Great red dot optic. Took it to the range last weekend and got it sighted in. Performed extremely well and was able to get it on bulls-eye in no time with a laser bore sight. Very good clarity on the glass with a slight blue tint.
  • Excellent red dot... Adjustable reticle (dimmable), which makes it night vision (NV) compatible.
  • I think the reticle is not as crisp as my Eotech, and the first few settings seems useless (invisible to my eye anyway).
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 PRO (12841) Patrol Rifle Optic
  • The included Aimpoint mount is perfect height to cowitness the magpul sights.
  • The brightest setting seems a bit larger than 2 moa and creates a red halo around the outer edge of the optic. I think two clicks down from full bright provides my most desirable sight picture. I'm extremely happy with this purchase.
  • The lowest settings can really be fine tuned for use with NV, and the 4 upper setting should get you through most lighting situations. It's an awesome value.
  • Maintained zero after being bounced around a bit, without breathing hard. Very rugged, positive feel. Simple and very positive picatinny mount, and tethered covers for windage/elevation adjustment.
  • Rear cap lens was scratched when I received the product.
  • Tension knob for the mount catches on my chest rig sporadically (the knob is a bit bulky).
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.

What customers say about "Power"
AimPoint PRO (12841) Patrol Rifle Optic
  • Battery life is great. Have had it constantly "on" for months now.
  • The unit seems well made, solid, and I like the long battery life.
  • I have left this on for almost 2 years straight, and the battery is still going strong.
  • Battery apparently lasts for years, even w/ the optic left on (although, I'd probably swap it out every other year just because I'm anal about that).
AimPoint Micro T-1 (12417) 2 MOA with Standard Mount
  • The battery lasts as advertised -- it's been on since I received it.
  • Simply install the batteries, turn it on, sight in at the range and forget about it for a year or more.
  • Awesome battery life.
