Aimpoint Patrol Optic Goes Nationwide & Blaser Detachable Mount – SHOT Show 2013


The Aimpoint Patrol Optic was designed for the US Military and carries a street price of $453. They can’t make enough of them because of the worldwide reputation for Aimpoint quality and durability. This year Aimpoint has opened up the sale of this high demand sight to all of its dealers, not just Law Enforcement (known as LE) dealers. If you are looking for an up-head read dot sight for your AR-15, the Aimpoint Patrol Optic is going to be the one you want to shop last. Be careful online buying Aimpoint. There are cheap copies out there that are not Aimpoints and they are absolute junk. Nobody is selling real Aimpoints at less than retail prices, because the demand is so high that they had to re-purpose an entire factory just to make more of this one Patrol Optic, and it is still backordered. Only a real Aimpoint is a real Aimpoint, so beware and don’t be tricked by non-Aimpoint dealers selling fakes. Also check out the new Blaser mount for the Aimpoint hunting sight. We haven’t actually tested it in hand, but it is said to return to zero when you remove and re-attach the mount. No word on the price yet, but if you shoot a Blaser this is an exciting development. That hunting sight is great choice for North American game. There are a lot of red dots on the market, but there is only one Aimpoint, and they are the world leader.

    OK, what’s going on here? They say they’re selling so many of these things they can’t keep them in stock, yet I can’t find anything on their site called the ‘patrol’. It would have been nice if they would,ve provided a link directly to that specific sight.

    Technical glitch! Your link to camo clothing brings up Aimpoint Scope info.

    There is really is nothing like an Aimpoint. I loved my PRO so much I bought a second one for another rifle. Amazing optic at an unreal price.

    I’m a big fan of the idea of using low-mounted red dots on hunting rifles. Kudos to Aimpoint and Blaser for pioneering the arrangement! Any chance of expanding to other gun makers for us flannel-wearing plebs?

      I was in a similar school of thought. I ran across a video called Wild Boar Fever 3 on youtube, where a european hunter was running an Aimpoint on a hunting rifle shooting running Boar. I was so impressed that I mounted one on my old Marlin lever rifle that I’ve use for Hog and Deer. Near all my shots are on stationary game, but I’ve been able to hit a few extra Hog I wouldn’t have before with the old 3-9×40…
