In 1974 a group of Swedish entrepreneurs set out to improve shooting accuracy with one goal in mind – to create a technology that would allow shooters to quickly acquire both static and moving targets in all weather and lighting conditions. Soon, their Aimpoint red dot sight would revolutionize the world of shooting and hunting.
The first commercial sight, the "Aimpoint Electronic" red dot sight, was introduced to the market in 1975 and has continued to evolve over the past 35 years to become recognized as one of the fastest, most rugged and most efficient electronic small arms sights in the world, with more than 1 million red dot sights in use worldwide today.
Aimpoint is certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2008 and each Aimpoint product is manufactured in a controlled process and environment. Every sight is hand-built, assigned an identification number, and undergoes rigorous testing and various quality control protocols during the entire manufacturing process. Whether its a sight for rifles. shotguns or pistols, each Aimpoint product is designed for real world use and to handle even
the toughest environments and treatment.
All Aimpoint products use non-magnifying optical collimators with battery powered (up to 50,000+ hours) LED lights to produce a red aiming point. Many sites employ a double-mirror system that forces the sight's dot to maintain position with changes in eye position.

For more than 20 years the elite military and law enforcement forces have used Aimpoint sights. The rugged, waterproof and durable design of all Aimpoint optics are the reason 71 million are deployed today.
In 1997, the U.S. Army awarded Aimpoint the world's first military contract for red dot sights, and since then the list of armed forces using Aimpoint optics has grown to include the US Air Force and SOCOM, as well as the French, Swedish, Italian, Danish and Finish armies.
