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-2 (200170) 2 MOA W/Standard Mount
  • I went out to the range with my AR and the sight performs beautifully. There have been many, many reviews on this sight by shooters who are much more experienced and smarter than me, so I won't even bother continuing. I have nothing to add. It's a great sight, plain and simple.
  • PA is probably good enough for most, but side by side, there is no comparison. No red glare from the emitter, no blue/green tint to the sight picture. Nice sharp, yet small dot.
  • The turret adjustments for windage and elevation, and for adjusting the red dot illumination levels have positive "clicks" and no slop.
  • The serial number and Aimpoint logo is supposed to be engraved near the bottom of the optic housing's side. My serial number was a paint stamp, and does not show anything for the company's logo.
  • Be careful! What I received was a counterfeit. Had no Aiipoint logo and battery cap was flat not domed!

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-2 (200170) 2 MOA W/Standard Mount
  • Excellent reticle and sight, I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to use this on a pistol or an AR with standard iron sights.
  • The flip caps (see-thru ocular lens cap, and opaque objective lens cap) that are included with the scope are valuable accessories for protecting the lenses and are convenient to use.
  • The aluminum alloy scope body is durable but lightweight, and is immaculately anodized. Overall, a superb product.
  • I own several other T1 aimpoints. These are the best red dot sights available, hands down. The sight never has any zero shift, even with hard use.
  • The lens covers are supposed to say Aimpoint somewhere on them. Mine do not.
  • The Micro T-2 is supposed to have 12 different brightness settings, and an off position. Mine only had 11 brightness levels and an off position.

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-2 (200170) 2 MOA W/Standard Mount
  • Battery life is just amazing, although i usually turn the unit off when storing long term.
  • I'm very pleased I switched over from Eotech. And, with the purported 5-year battery life, I will be popping zombies well into TEOTWAKI.
  • This optic is incredible and the fact that you leave it on and the battery lasts for years is a plus. Would definitely purchase again.
  • The battery life is out of this world! Six years continuously on! Yes, you read it correctly. 6 years always on!
