NEW: Aimpoint Carbine Optic

Aimpoint has announced the introduction of a new sight designed specifically for modern sporting rifles.  Known as the Aimpoint Carbine Optic (ACO), the new sight expands upon the company’s already proven designs with a high-quality, entry-priced optic. 

Developed with the modern sporting rifle owner in mind, the ACO is ready to mount and shoot directly out of the box. A full suite of branded accessories, such as front and rear flip covers, an anti-reflection filter, and spare battery holders will also be available from dealers, and will allow users to customize the sight to fit their specific requirements.


The ACO pairs a 30mm aluminum alloy sight tube with an extremely rugged fixed height mount designed to provide absolute co-witness with AR-15 backup iron sights. A two minute of angle (2 MOA) red dot is utilized to allow maximum target acquisition speed and accuracy at all distances. The ACO is completely waterproof, and offers one year of constant-on use from a single 1/3N battery.

The Aimpoint Carbine Optic has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $393, and will be available from Aimpoint dealers in mid-to late October.  For more information on Aimpoint and the new ACO, visit the company’s website at:
