“We needed to match our choice of color surface finish with the durability and performance of the Micro T-2 sight,” said Jonas Ardemalm, Director of Commercial Sales & Marketing at Aimpoint in a press release.
“Cerakote offers an extremely durable coating that has been proven to perform under very demanding conditions, and it offers advantages beyond typical paint applications,” added Ardemalm. “We are very happy to offer this enhanced Micro T-2 to our customers in the USA.”
Aimpoint wants you to know that this is a limited run of FDE Micro T-2 sights. Expect them to sell out quickly. They will be available at a select group of authorized Aimpoint Dealers.
Not sure about the price just yet. Standard black Micro T-2s sell for around $760.
