Aimpoint CompM5b Red Dot
In fact, the new CompM5b sight is a ballistic compensating red dot optic in the CompM5 series of sights. The idea behind this device is to allow the user to quickly adjust the position of the 2 MOA Red Dot based on target distance and wind conditions. This is a revolution in the world of reflex sights.
The CompM5b has the interchangeable turrets that regulate the point of aim for different calibers of ammunition. While shooting, the user can switch between longer and shorter distances without having to compensate ballistic drop or re-zero the sight. Wind compensation can be adjusted on 3 levels – mild, moderate, and severe. Adjustment turrets are customizable to meet special user requirements and ballistic profiles.
The CompM5b comes as the latest version of the CompM5 series of sights and is powered by a single AAA battery. These small and lightweight batteries are inexpensive and easy to find throughout the world. Readily available alkaline versions of the AAA simplify logistics and eliminate the potential shipping hazards inherent in lithium batteries. The CompM5b sight boasts an extremely long battery life – with over 5 years of continuous use at daylight position 7 and over 10 years of continuous use at the night vision settings. These sights were designed to take up minimal space on the weapon platform while maintaining the same standard of extreme ruggedness and reliability.
The CompM5b is an enclosed system and fully submersible up to 150 feet. It is compatible with all generations of Night Vision Devices, as well as Aimpoint’s 3X-C, 3XMag-1, and 6XMag-1 magnifiers. A high-grade optical lens system gives the CompM5b exceptional light transmission and dot clarity, making the sight operationally parallax free. The sight weighs 6.3 oz and the standard configuration with the spacer and mount weighs 9 oz.
According to the users who had the luck to take part in the beta testing of the Aimpoint CompM5b, the sight truly makes the difference.
