First showcased by the manufacturing company at the 2015 edition of the IWA OutdoorClassics expo in Nuremberg (Germany), the Aimpoint Micro H2 small-sized red-dot sight is now available all through Europe, and was on stand at the 2016 edition of the HIT Show in Vicenza, Italy.
Originally conceived as a slight restyling of the Micro T1/T2 line of micro red-dot sights, the 1x, parallax-free Aimpoint Micro H2 ended up being completely redesigned as its development went by, and now its advanced optical lenses and surface coatings offer a vast improvement in performance, light transmission, shape and clarity of the 2 MOA red dot reticle.
The ACET reticle illumination system is powered by a single, 3V commercial CR2032 "coin cell" lithium battery; the system provides a maximum life of 50,000 hours (over 5 years) of constant operation for every single battery. The CR2032 battery is housed in the brightness control knob, which allows the red dot to be turned on or set on twelve different brightness levels for optimum visibility in all environmental lighting conditions.
The fully waterproof housing of the Aimpoint Micro H2 red dot sight has also been reinforced, and is now much more rugged and sports additional protection points for the adjustment turrets, as well as a set of see-through front and rear flip-up lens covers.
The Aimpoint Micro H2 red dot sight sports a MIL-STD-1913 "Picatinny" and Weaver-compatible base, which allows easy attachment to any standard rail. Other aftermarket interfaces are compatible for the installation of the Micro H2 red dot sight on less common or popular platforms.
