New Red Dot Handgun Optic: Aimpoint ACRO Sight Shines
by The Arms Guide Jun 13, 2018
The Aimpoint® ACRO™ (Advanced Compact Reflex Optic) Series is the latest entry into the increasingly competitive handgun optic market. Military and law enforcement shooters are turning to optical sights to provide advantages in situational awareness and rapid target engagement through all light conditions.
For many years, shooters have requested a small enclosed red dot sight to fit on handguns. The unique small sight design of the Aimpoint®ACRO series electronic red-dot sight was developed for use on pistols and other weapon platforms.
Utilizing Aimpoint’s advanced sight technology, the Acro P-1, offers an enclosed system that is much more durable than those with open systems, it has been fully tested for shock, vibration, temperature span and other environmental stress. The Acro can also be used as a backup sight for magnifying scopes, personal defense weapons, and on any system where a small red dot is applicable.
The Acro P-1 optic can perform under tough conditions while adding negligible size and weight to the equipment. Tested with a minimum of 20,000 rounds on a .40 cal pistol slide, this small optic has proven itself in its size category as the leader in ruggedness and reliability.
