AIMPOINT LAUNCHES NEW AR-READY MICRO SIGHTS
Aimpoint has announced the addition of a new line of pre-mounted Micro T-2 and Micro H-2 sights, that are immediately ready for use on AR-15 and M4 Carbine style rifles.

That grip wirelessly communicates with the rail-mounted, or remotely located, laser sight and light module. When the module and grip are actively communicating—and linked—via a secure Crimson Trace developed interface, a solid green light illuminates on the grip’s side panel. If the grip is searching for the partner light/laser module, the user will see a flashing green light. If the control grip has lost connectivity with the partnered laser/light module, there will be a constant...
