Red-dot sights are ubiquitous in the tactical world. But the quick and accurate aiming solutions are not purely relegated to sitting atop black rifles.
The optics have also won favor among a good cross-section of hunters. Whether it's stalking fast moving boar or thick-timber deer, the red-dots have proven themselves adept at putting meat on the table.
In this realm, Aimpoint has helped place more than one trophy on the wall. And the Swedish company appears to be still shooting to help hunters of every stripe with its most recent addition.
The manufacturer recently introduced the next generation of one of its lightest and least obtrusive sights. And while the new Micro H-2 has retained a number of snappy features from its predecessor (the H-1), the sight has some notable upgrades.
Perhaps the most heavily touted advancement the H-2 boasts is the its improved lenses. While the company does not get into specifics, it points out it has upgraded the optic's glass and its coating, allowing for greater light-gathering capabilities, thus better clarity no matter the circumstances.
The Aimpoint Micro H-2 also has a redesigned extruded aluminum housing that makes it more rugged, while maintaining its slight proportions. The company has also added a couple new features to add to the waterproof sight’s robustness, including reinforced turrets and front and rear flip-up lens covers.
Even with these tweaks, the optic is only a hair heavier than the H-1, weighing in at 3.3 ounces. Its dimensions are also minimal at 2.7 inches in length and 1.6-inches high (including its mount).
Like all Aimpoint optics, the Micro H-2 is designed to be parallax-free. This feature should be a huge asset for hunters, helping them deliver speedy and accurate shots confidently.
With a 2 MOA red-dot, the new sight should allow hunters a good amount of accuracy, even at medium distances. The sight can also be adjusted to nearly any light conditions with 12 brightness settings.
The H-2 runs off one CR2032 3V lithium battery, which, if the sight lives up to Aimpoint’s specs, has an incredible lifespan in the optic. The company lists the battery’s life at 50,000 hours or over five years of continues use in the H-2.
The sight has a Weaver-/Picatinny-style base, which allows it to be attached to nearly any rail. It also can piggyback on a larger optic using an adapter and is compatible with rifles, shotguns and bows.
Aimpoint plans on releasing the optic in August. The company did not have an MSRP listed on the new Mico H-2.
