The Aimpoint CompC3 red dot sight is the compact equivalent of the CompML3 intended for non-military applications where a smaller sight is needed. Aimpoint red dot sights are parallax-free beyond 25 meters, preventing variations in head position from affecting the point of impact. Both eyes open shooting prevents the tunnel vision associated with scopes and provides unrivalled situational awareness.
This is an excellent 2 MoA red dot sight for engaging moving targets, making Aimpoints are the sight of choice for taking moose and wildfowl in the Nordic countries. The Aimpoint CompC3 is immensely strong, constructed as a 6000 series aluminium tube and is fully waterproof.
The lenses of the CompC3 Aimpoint are ground from high quality glass, multicoated and covered in a highly effective anti fogging compound. The tube is hard anodized semi-matte black to military specifications.
Aimpoint’s proprietary Advanced Circuit Efficiency Technology enables the Aimpoint C3 to get 50,000 hours at a setting of 7 out of 10 at room temperature – the equivalent of operating continuously for over five years!
The Aimpoint CompC3 is intended for day use only and does not have night vision compatible settings. This sight comes complete with a Weaver ring mount. Note that the 4 MoA version of this sight has been discontinued.
