EOTech's G33 Magnifier

Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic Sight Pro

With a 4.8/5 rating on our site, and plenty of testimonials and reviews to spare, the new Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic Sight PRO will be a purchase you won't ever regret!

All you have to to do is put it on the rifle, and it's always ready and always on! This product won't even require a battery change for up to 3 years, making it so hassle-free, but will surely enhance your shooting experience!

The Aimpoint Pro will give you 2 minutes of angle red dot for accurate target engagement at all distances. There's enhanced speed on the target and increased first-shot hit probably when compared to iron sights and magnified scopes. The Aimpoint Pro is always compatible with all generations of night vision devices and can be used with the Aimpoint 3x Magnifier and Concealed Engagement unit.

The hard anodized aluminum alloy housing will make sure it's rugged enough for all real-world weather conditions and being waterproof up to 150 feet is an added bonus, too!

The in service date and battery change date reminders makes inventory tracking and maintenance so easy and worry-free.

Your fellow gun enthusiast says,  "I have both the Aimpoint PRO and an EoTech 557 and I have used both on my AR. For some intangible reason, I greatly prefer the Aimpoint PRO. I find it mush easier and quicker to acquire the target and use with both eyes open. It's the shooter's preference. Optimally, try an EoTech and an Aimpoint before you buy.

Also, it can't be any easier to use. Turn it on for three years and done. Changing the brightness is easy and quick with one knob and eight settings (Aimpoint) instead of finding the right button and scrolling through 30 settings (EoTech). Both are great products, but I prefer this one."

More Features of the Optic Pro
  • Front and rear flip covers keep lenses clean
  • Transparent rear flip cover allows use of the sight (with both eyes open) even with both covers closed in an emergency
  • Battery and adjustment cap retainer straps means you will never lose your pieces
  • Modular mount set up for use on flat-top AR15, M4 Carbine and M16 rifles. (Adapter available for carry handle mounting)
  • Removable spacer. Remove for use on shotguns and sub-guns
  • QRP2 rail grabber mount. Snap knob three times for a perfect mount. Will not deform your rail like many other mounts
  • Recessed lens openings helps prevent against impact damage, fingerprints and scratches

Standard features for all Aimpoint® sights

  • Unlimited field of view
  • Parallax-free and unlimited eye relief
  • Unaffected by extreme weather conditions
  • Rugged, durable construction
  • No hazardous materials
  • No laser emission that could be harmful to your eyes
  • Increased aiming confidence
