Aimpoint Launches New ACRO Series Sight

Aimpoint Launches New ACRO Series Sight

Micro-red-dots sights have been gaining greater and greater acceptance as handgun sighting systems. For years, end users have requested a small enclosed red dot sight to fit on handguns. Utilizing Aimpoint’s sight technology, the Acro P-1 offers an enclosed system significantly more durable than open-type systems. It is also the only sight in its size category fully tested for shock, vibration, temperature span and other environmental stress. 

The Acro P-1 optic has been engineered to provide optimum perform under tough conditions while adding negligible size and weight to the equipment. Tested with a minimum of 20,000 rounds on a .40-caliber pistol slide, this small optic has passed all tests for ruggedness and reliability. 

Designed for direct integration onto pistol slides, the Aimpoint Acro P-1 sight can also be used as a backup sight for magnified optics scopes, personal defense weapons, and on any system where a small red dot is applicable.The Acro P-1 sight is a 1X (non-magnifying), parallax-free optic with a 3.5 MOA red dot for fast target acquisition. It is fully submersible to 25 meters and allows continuous operation for over 1 year on a single CR1225 battery. Dot intensity is adjusted with side push buttons. 

“The development of the Acro P-1 sight sets a new standard for compact pistol mounted reflex optics,” said Aimpoint AB President Lennart Ljungfelt. “The commitment we make to our customers is to develop the highest performing red-dot sights available. The Acro P-1 optic fulfills that commitment by providing the lightest and most rugged enclosed red-dot sight in its size category on the market.” 

At 1.9 inches long and 1.2 inches wide, the Acro P-1 won’t take up a lot of real estate, even on a handgun slide. Weight is 2.1 ounces with the battery installed, and battery life is estimated at one year at setting position six. Constructed of anodized aluminum with a matte black finish, the Acro P-1 has a range of operation from -49 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
