Reportedly, it is a AAA battery powered variant from Aimpoint. Said to be a downsized M4 with T2 capabilities, the battery choice is to make logistics easier on agencies like DSS which operate in remote locations and may have difficulty sourcing the 2032 battery.

Sneak Peek – Aimpoint Nano

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

French company TR Equipement leaked a photo of the upcoming Aimpoint Nano in their website in an article on the Brügger & Thomet USW, a new shoulderable pistol with folding stock from the Swiss company, introduced in the wake of last year’s Paris attacks. The SA/DA 9mm USW A1, based in the aluminum framed CZ 75, will be available this November, while a striker fired polymer variant is expected next year. The Nano MRDS from Aimpoint should debut during The 2017 SHOT Show.

The pictured Aimpoint Nano has been under development for the past couple of years, but even this photo is only of a prototype and is not the final product so we’ll have to wait until then for details.  

Update : Below is the holster offered with the system which incorporates a shroud for the Nano.

Aimpoint Relocates US Corporate Headquarters To Manassas, Virginia

Thursday, April 21st, 2016


Manassas, VA – April 18, 2016 – Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in reflex sighting technology, and manufacturer of electronic fire control systems, has announced the relocation of its US headquarters to Manassas, Virginia.

“This move will allow Aimpoint to better meet the needs of our customers,” said Brian Lisankie, President of Aimpoint Inc. “This new, state of the art location provides a considerable increase in both office and warehouse space, and provides everything we need in order to implement improvements in order fulfillment and electronic commerce. Being located directly on the Route 66 corridor gives us quick and easy access to Washington DC, as well as Washington Dulles Airport, and is big enough to accommodate our growth requirements into the future.”

The company’s new address is: Aimpoint Inc, 7309 Gateway Court, Manassas, VA 20109. Aimpoint Inc is a wholly owned subsidiary of Aimpoint Holding Inc. For more information, please visit the company’s webpage at:

Post SHOT Show Wrapup – Aimpoint Magnifiers

Tuesday, January 26th, 2016

 During FirstSpear’s Range Day, we ran across Aimpoint’s new magnifiers.  Below is the Aimpont press release which offers additional information but we’d like to clarify something we put out last week.  Turns out there are professional grade magnifiers in both 3x and 6x versions while the commercial variant is only offered in a 3x model. 
Las Vegas, NV – January 19, 2016 – Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in electronic red-dot sighting technology, has announced the addition of three new accessory magnifiers to their product line. Designed to work in conjunction with the company’s electronic reflex sights, these new magnifiers are being offered in 3X and 6X magnification, in both a standard grade for use by civilian shooters, as well as professional grade models.

The new Aimpoint magnifiers feature diopter adjustment, allowing each optic to be individually adapted to the operator’s eye. All are protected by shock absorbing protective rubber covers that also provide an ergonomic grip surface. The Aimpoint magnifiers may be used with the company’s quick-detach TwistMount™, or with the newly launched Aimpoint® FlipMount which allows the magnifier to be quickly flipped in or out of the optical axis, or removed from the firearm completely.

“These magnifiers open up some interesting new opportunities for users of Aimpoint sights.” said Matt Swenson, VP of Sales at Aimpoint Inc. “Our standard grade 3X-C is a great magnifier at a very reasonable price point. On the professional side, the Aimpoint 6XMag offers 50% more magnification than existing US military combat optics, and allows an operator to quickly transition back to their non-magnified Micro T-2 sight for CQB.”
