The Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic 30mm Red Dot Sight 12841 is designed with input from a distinguished group of current and former professionals and incorporates many never before seen features to maximize performanceimage within the challenging conditions faced by modern law enforcement professionals. This Red Dot Rifle Scope by AimPoint uses a hard-anodized 30mm tube that encloses 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 on the Aimpoint 30mm Pro Patrol Rifle is made with a unique band-pass coating that allows it to be used with all generations of night vision devices. This Aimpoint Red Dot Weapon Sight has a modular QRP2 mount which 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. The Aimpoint Pro Patrol 30mm Red Dot Sight has a two Minute of Angle (2 MOA) red dot that is utilized to allow maximum accuracy at all distances and under all environmental conditions.
Reticle Type Aimpoint Red Dot
What is a red dot sight ?
A red dot sight allows a shooter to do what comes naturally — keep both eyes open while focusing on a target. When a shooter looks into an Aimpoint sight, a red dot appears in the lens. The shooter can then quickly superimpose the red dot on the target. When the red dot is on the target, you’re on target. It is this combination of speed of sighting and accuracy that makes Aimpoint sights Superior to all other types of sights.
Aimpoint red dot sights are made without magnification or optical distortion. They use an LED (light emitting diode) which is totally harmless to the eyes.
The size of the dot
The Aimpoint sights are available in two different dot sizes: 2 or 4 MOA (minute of angle) – depending on the models.
In term of speed and accuracy, extensive trials have shown that the 4 MOA is the optimal dot size for most users in a close shooting situation.
Tests performed by the military have repeatedly proven that a single red dot is the reticle with which marksmen fire a well-aimed shot the fastest.
- 1 MOA ~ 30 mm at 100 m (1” at 100 yards)
- 2 MOA ~ 60 mm at 100 m (2" at 100 yards)
- 4 MOA ~ 120 mm at 100 m (4" at 100 yards)
In practice, this means that the 4 MOA dot covers the target with:
- 30 mm at 25 m (1" at 25 yards)
- 60 mm at 50 m (2" at 50 yards)
- 120 mm at 100 m (4" at 100 yards)
In practice, this means that the 2 MOA dot covers the target with:
- 15 mm at 25 m (0,60" at 25 yards)
- 30 mm at 50 m (1" at 50 yards)
- 60 mm at 100 m (2" at 100 yards)
