Swedish optics manufacturer Aimpoint AB announced the introduction of a couple of new sighting products on 19 January 2024.

The first of these is the Aimpoint 3X-P magnifier: a 3× power magnifying module designed to work in conjunction with Aimpoint’s red dot sights.

Built to withstand the demands of professional end-users, the Aimpoint 3X-P features a variable dioptric setting (-2 to +2), allowing the magnifier to be adjusted to the individual user’s eye, and an ergonomic design with protective rubber cover for a sure grip when used as a handheld device.

“Offered at an affordable price point, the 3X-P is the ideal solution to increase the distance of your aiming solution without sacrificing the advantage of extremely quick target acquisition,” the company stated in a press release, adding that the 3X-P “provides a crisp sight picture with a generous field of view”.

Utilising the red dot in Aimpoint sights as the aiming reticle eliminates the need for re-zeroing when shifting between non-magnified and magnified aiming. The magnifier can be used with the quick-detach Aimpoint TwistMount, or with the FlipMount, which allows the magnifier to be quickly flipped in or out of the optical axis or removed from the firearm completely.

“This magnifier increases the capabilities for many users of Aimpoint sights,” Erik Jeppsson, director of marketing and sales worldwide for Aimpoint, was quoted as saying in a company press release. “We now offer a magnifier that fits the needs of demanding professionals while maintaining a budget-friendly price point.”

Meanwhile, Aimpoint is introducing two new versions of its Acro P-2 sight coated in Cerakote finishes of either Sniper Grey or Flat Dark Earth, offering corrosion and chemical resistance, UV and thermal stability, and durability under extreme conditions.

The Acro P-2 is claimed by Aimpoint to be “the benchmark for which all pistol-mounted optics are measured”. designed to withstand the shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, and material stresses generated by firing over 20,000 rounds of .40 S&W ammunition. Built to endure the physical demands of semi-automatic pistol slides, the Acro P-2 is a closed-emitter red dot optic that includes a brighter, more efficient light-emitting diode (LED) emitter coupled with a higher-capacity CR2032 battery to provide over five years of constant-on use.

In 1975 Aimpoint was the first company to market an electronic red dot sight combining a reflecting curved mirror and an LED.
