Aimpoint PRO Patrol Rifle Optic

SKU #: AIM-12841
MSRP: $485.00
Aimpoint has removed restrictions on the sale of the Patrol Rifle Optic and this product is now available to all customers (Domestic Shipments Only)!

Please Note: The battery and adjustment cap retainer straps are no longer included. Aimpoint has updated the caps so they no longer require the strap.

Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic (PRO) is designed with input from a distinguished group of current and former professionals, the Patrol Rifle Optic incorporates many never before seen features to maximize this sight's performance within the challenging conditions faced by modern law enforcement. A hard-anodized 30mm tube was utilized, enclosing a high efficiency circuit that allows the sight to be turned on and left on for up to three years using a single battery.

The front lens utilizes a unique band-pass coating, which allows the sight to be used with all generations of night vision devices. The modular QRP2 mount includes a removable spacer that indexes the sight at the optimal height for co-witness with the standard iron sights on AR15/M16/M4 Carbine style weapons. This spacer can be removed to enable the use of the sight on police shotguns or sub-machineguns. The QRP2 mount also incorporates a torque-limiting twist knob that provides the optimal level of pressure on the rail while completely eliminating the possibility of over-tightening. Both the front and rear lenses are recessed within the sight body to provide protection against impact damage, scratches, and fingerprints.

Flip covers are included to further protect the lenses, and a transparent rear lens cover is utilized allowing the user to engage a target with the lens covers closed in an emergency situation. A two Minute of Angle (2 MOA) red dot is utilized to allow maximum accuracy at all distances and under all environmental conditions.

    Aimpoint quality/ruggedness/warranty!
    August 12, 2017
    Aimpoint makes solid stuff and the PRO is no exception. I looked for months to find another Comp ML3 but, they arent in stock (not produced anymore). I wasnt too keen on a used sight after getting a dud that only lasted about 2 months before the rheostat let go and the dot would just flicker. Decided to just go for a new red dot and once I saw the PRO pop up for sale on LAPoliceGear for $371.45, ready-to-mount mind you, to my door it was a no brainer. Aimpoint pretty much axed all the other versions of this 30mm RDS (Comp M3, ML3) and the PRO has taken the place of them. Uses the same ACET circuits as them but, the PRO does NOT have an off position. The 1/3N lasts like 3 ish years at setting 7. So theoretically it should last a good bit longer than that at the lowest setting.

    Tight optic
    May 6, 2017
    This red dot seems like it should cost more. It's super solid and the quick detach and mount are extremely well built and it's amazing that they are included at this price point. If you're considering this sight know that it is well worth the price, especially considering how well aimpoint stands behind their optics.

    Good Optic
    April 28, 2017
    I had this optic for a little over a year now. I put the battery in and turned it on and it has stayed on since. The dot has not dimmed at all. I bought some new batteries just in case but I think it will stay on for the full 30,000 hours as advertised. Although the other day my rifle suffered a 3 foot drop onto the concrete as I was grabbing gear from the trunk of my car. I was dissapointed to notice a shift in zero. I was able to see that it had shifted since it was cowittnessed with my iron sights. I took it to the range and at 50 yards I noticed that it had shifted 2.5 inches left and 3 inches low from the point of impact. That would of been a huge difference at 100 yards. Luckily it was easy to re-zero and I could fit all the rounds into a quarter at 50 yards which is where I zero my AR15. The only reason I was disappointed is you hear all the abuse these aimpoint optics go through and they hold zero. Mine suffered one accidental drop and lost zero. Just remember nothing is unfallible and if you take care of it, it will take care of you. I mounted this on my patrol rifle and have shot it frequently. Through normal use it has held up great. It is a red dot, it's quick for close quarters and with its long battery life I can keep it on and ready. I myself have noticed the the mount comes loose on me after a hundred rounds or so and always needs retightened. But this can be fixed with a different mount. If you work or operate (I use operate loosely) in an area that is wide open ranges I would opt for a magnified optic like a 1 to 4 power. But this suits my needs well. As mentioned before I used this on my patrol rifle. Last winter I saw temperatures below 0. Pulling my rifle in and out of the warm vehicle did not cause my optic to fog up which was a concern for me. I also take my rifle to the mountains with me when I'm riding my ATV. The rifle with optic is mounted on a rifle mount on the front of the ATV. Through the vibration ofor the motor and all the bumps and one time it was put in the ditch the optic has held zero just fine. It's been made to sit in the rain, been snowed on, and even had I've frozen to it and it works great still. Sorry to make this so long I was just trying to make sure I touched all the bases. Overall I like the optic alot. Through normal use it has held zero well. It losing zero when dropped may have been a fluke it landed right on the optic. I'm glad it still works and all it needed was re-zeroed. It has been on a little over a year now so the battery rocks.
    Easy to mount and zero. Super long battery life and does not fog when going to and from hot and cold temperatures. Definitely weather proof.
    Mount loosens on me after higher round counts and needs to be retightened every so often. The dot works but is not excellent for engaging further targets although can be done pretty easily out to 300 yards. Past 300 yards the dot starts to take up the target even when turned down.

    Best Price I Could Find
    February 9, 2017
    I know this is one of those items that vendors don't have a lot of leeway on as far as price goes but this was the best I could find. I got the Aimpoint for my personally owned patrol rifle. I picked Aimpoint because I am familiar with the product and it's dependability and durability.

    Aimpoint PRO
    September 1, 2016
    I was immediately impressed with the robust design of this optic. It has a solid feel so I expect it to withstand any field use. This is a replacement for an EOTech HWS that I hated parting with due to its red dot design but I took advantage of L3's return program due to issues with some of their sights. When I first turned on the PRO I was a bit disappointed with having to adjust to the Aimpoint red dot. Once I mounted it on my SIG 556 rifle and took it out to the range, that all changed. The sight was very easy to site in. I sited in the PRO 1.2 inches low at 25yards and it was spot on at 200 yards. Hitting a steel plate at the 200 yard range was effortless. Another concern I had with buying the PRO was whether I would be able to use my EOTech 3x magnifier thinking the height above the rail might be an issue. Turns out it was a match made in Heaven! All I can say is I love my new Aimpoint PRO and you will too!!!
    I have other Aimpoints......Micro H1 and T1. Love those two sights and love the PRO! What can I say but the design, simplicity of use, and robust design of these Aimpoint sites will cause me to purchase more Aimpoint products in the future. The folks at LA Police Gear are second to none. My online purchase experience with them has always been very positive with quick delivery, excellent customer service, product availability, and very competitive prices. I will continue to use LA Police Gear for future purchases!!!
    Battery model, availability, and cost. I immediately ordered some spare batteries for the PRO on Amazon Prime. A 3-pack of Duracells for about $10.

    Aimpoint's entry-level optic is still pricy at ~ $420, but worth every penny. Solid optic with the base and lense covers included. Rear cover is clear so user can still see the dot with the covers closed and both eyes open. The only reason to go more expensive is lose weight/size.
    3-year batter life Rugged Mount and lense covers included NV compatible Switch/adjustments solid with good feedback
    A little big and heavier than other (much more expensive) options

    What in your opinion is the best aimpoint scope for a springfield M1A scout ? I will mount on the forward rail. will I need accessories?
    on January 20, 2013

    If you are looking for a sight, you can't go wrong with the Aimpoint PRO, especially for the price. If you are in fact looking for a scope, it all depends on what you are going to use it for. This Aimpoint sight mounts via standard Picatinny rails, so you will not need any accessories to attach it.
