The FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team and Defensive Systems Unit are now being issued the Aimpoint Micro T-2 and Micro H-2, respectively. This seems to be a direct result of the recent fallout regarding the issues with EOTech optics.
Chantilly, VA – November 24, 2015 – Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in electronic red-dot sighting technology, has announced that the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is now issuing Aimpoing Micro Series Sights to agents in the Hostage Rescue Team (HRT) and Defensive Systems Unit (DSU).
The FBI conducted rigorous testing on optics from a wide variety of manufacturers. Following this selection process, the Aimpoint Micro T-2 and Micro H-2 were authorized as issued optics. The Micro T-2 was chosen for use by the HRT, and the Micro H-2 was selected by the DSU.
Contracts were awarded via competitive bidding process, and Aimpoint Dealers began shipments to the FBI in July, 2015.
