The Aimpoint Carbine Optic (ACO) combines a 30mm aluminum alloy sight tube with a rugged fixed height mount designed to provide absolute co-witness with AR-15 backup iron sights. Its two minute of angle (2 MOA) red dot provides rapid target acquisition and accuracy at all distances.

In addition, there are a wide variety of branded accessories available from dealers that allow the user to customize the sight to meet specific needs. These include front and rear flip covers, an anti-reflection filter and spare battery holders. “The Aimpoint Carbine Optic is the smart choice for today’s modern sporting rifle owner,” said Brian Lisankie, president of Aimpoint Inc. “By choosing this optic, shooters get a premium Aimpoint sight at an extremely friendly price point. If you own an AR-15 rifle, the ACO is exactly what you need to complete the package.” The Aimpoint Carbine Optic is available for $393. It will be available from Aimpoint dealers beginning in mid- to late-October.
