Aimpoint Acro P-2 and C-2: the new generation of the red dot sight 

We already had the chance to introduce to readers the Aimpoint Acro super compact red dot sight, characterized by a fully enclosed optical channel that makes it extremely resistant to shocks and elements. The first version made a great impression on us, but every technological product can be improved, and here is the second version of this interesting optoelectronic device. 

The second generation of the Aimpoint Acro is based on an improved LED emitter that works in conjunction with the larger capacity CR2032 battery to provide five years (50,000 hours) of constant-on power to allow you to get the target faster and more accurately.

“Designed to endure the intense G-forces generated by semi-automatic pistol slides, the ACRO series was the first pistol sight to offer a fully enclosed optical channel to protect the LED emitter. Built to exceed the requirements of the user, the Acro P-2 has been tested and proven to withstand the extreme shock, vibration, temperatures, and material stresses generated by firing over 20,000 rounds of .40 S&W ammunition,” in the manufacturer's words.Aimpoint Acro: dettagli, usi e prezzo

Aimpoint Acro P-2 and C-2: for military and civilian use

Aimpoint Acro new red dot sight
The Aimpoint Acro is available in two versions: the P-2 is intended for military and police use, the C-2 is designed for the civilian market.

The Aimpoint Acro's new high-efficiency LED emitter provides a sharp 3.5 MOA dot. Front and rear clear glass lenses protect the advanced reflective lens system. A new digital adjustment keypad provides a sharper tactile feel when adjusting dot intensity. Controls are now next to the battery compartment to protect them against unintentional changes. Recessed housing edges at the front and rear of the sight allow for flip-up lens lens covers when the sight is mounted on a rifle or shotgun.

To meet the high expectations of professional users, the Aimpoint Acro P-2 is built and tested to withstand extreme environmental stresses, while the Acro C-2 version is intended for the civilian market. The mount of the next-generation Acro is the same as its predecessor, with a one-piece plate for mounting directly on optics-ready guns. The sight can also be mounted on Weaver and Picatinny rails with a quick-release mount available in various heights relative to the optical axis. Several adapter plates are also available, including one for the Micro mounting interface, allowing compatibility with all Micro sight mount options.
