The Aimpoint PRO Patrol Riflescope incorporates features to maximize the sight’s performance. The Aimpoint PRO’s front lens was constructed with a special coating, which allows the rifle sight to be used with all types of night vision devices.

The rifle sight’s modular mount includes a removable spacer that indexes the sight at the optimal height for co-witness with the standard iron sights on AR15/M16/M4 carbine-style guns. This spacer can be removed if desired to enable the use of the sight on police shotguns or sub-machine guns.

The QRP2 mount for the PRO Optic also incorporates a torque-limiting twist knob that provides the optimal level of pressure on the rail while completely eliminating the possibility of over-tightening. Both the PRO Optic’s front and rear lenses are recessed within the sight body to provide protection against impact damage, scratches and fingerprints.

Flip covers are included to further protect the lenses, and a transparent rear lens cover is utilized allowing the user to engage a target with the lens covers closed in an emergency situation. A two Minute of Angle red dot is utilized to allow maximum accuracy at all distances and under all environmental conditions.
