Aimpoint introduced the Acro S-20 Shotgun Sight at SHOT Show Industry Day 2024. Aimpoint has created this sight for shotguns with a ventilated rib, providing a low-profile, compact optic that is designed to enhance the hit rate for a variety of shooting sports.

Brian Lisankie, President of Aimpoint Inc., stated “Adding the Acro S-20 sight to your shotgun provides invaluable feedback, as the red dot shows exactly where the bore is relative to the target. It makes a superb training tool for beginners, shortens the learning curve, and providing immediate success.”

Many features make this a welcome addition to your shotgun shooting experience including, a 9-MOA dot which provides excellent speed and accuracy. The windage and elevation adjustments click with each turn and are easily zeroed with the included T10 Aimpoint tool. The sight has a push button power switch.

The Aimpoint Acro S-20 weighs only 2.6 ounces and is fully enclosed, waterproof and submersible to 15 feet. The housing is made of anodized, semi-matte aluminum and the integrated mount is reinforced polymer. The unit is engineered so the 3V lithium, CR2032 battery lasts for 5 years at the daylight setting.

Digital intensity buttons are easy to use with or without gloves and the 15mm integrated shotgun rib mount allows for easy adjustment and placement along the ventilated rib and an ultra-low optical axis assists in positioning the gun to the cheek. For cross-eye-dominant shooters, this sight allows the shooter to use their strong side without having to switch sides or utilize a blinder.
