Aimpoint announced the release of the newMicro S-1 sight at SHOW Show 2017. Designed specifically for use on shotguns with a ventilated rib, the Micro S-1 is designed to enhance hit percentage for waterfowl and upland bird hunters or on a sporting clays course. The new optic also provides a compact, low-profile option for turkey and deer shotgun hunters.
"Adding the S-1 sight to your shotgun provides a quick point of reference and increases your ability to hit a variety of targets from the trap course to the pheasant field," said Andrea Cerwinske, VP of Marketing and Business Development for Aimpoint. "The Micro S-1 will quickly become your new best friend."
The carbon-fiber-reinforced mounting system positions the Aimpoint Micro S-1 on the lowest possible optical axis without adding unnecessary weight. The optic may be attached directly at any point along the ventilated rib and currently includes interchangeable adapter plates to fit most Browning, Beretta and Benelli shotguns.
The 6-MOA red dot is designed to provide a combination of target acquisition speed and visibility. This sight incorporates many of the design advances Aimpoint has learned after more than 20 years of service with the U.S. military, so the company contends that reliability will not be an issue.
