Guns & Ammo's Senior Field Editor Craig Boddington and Editor Eric Poole shot clays and spoke with Aimpoint about shotgun red dot sights at OSG Roundtable 2018. Boddington and Poole spoke with Aimpoint's Vice President of Marketing, Andrea Cerwinske, about the new Aimpoint Micro S-1 red dot sight.
The Micro S-1 is optimized for hunting and shooting shotgun applications. The Micro S-1 is the first ever Aimpoint sight designed for shotgunning. The Micro S-1 has the lowest optical axis out of any of Aimpoint's micro sights. This sight can be fitted with essentially any shotgun that can be found on the market.
The Aimpoint Micro S-1 sight attaches directly to the shotgun at any point along the ventilated rib, and interchangeable adapter plates are included to accommodate most popular shotgun rib sizes. The Micro S-1 is available in 6 MOA dot size and has a higher maximum light intensity setting for bright sky conditions. The Micro S-1 enhances the hit percentage for hunters, as well as clay shooters. The battery on this red dot sight is impressive, with more than five years of continuous use. The MSRP on the Micro S-1 is $800.
