The Aimpoint CompM2 was adopted by the US Army and US Air Force as tbeir standard Close Combat Optic, the M68. It is in use with numerous armed forces including those of Sweden, Japan, Norway and many NATO countries. The M68 is now being replaced by the Aimpoint CompM4s, also known as the M68.

Just as rugged as the Aimpoint CompM2

The Aimpoint CompML2 red dot sight is the CompM2 without the night vision settings. This reduces the cost of the sight and makes it easier to import and export into and out of some countries making travel easier.

Able to withstand submersion to 25 meters or 80 feet, the Aimpoint CompML2 red dot sight has been tested and used in the harshest of conditions. The CompM2 red dot sight rapidly became the benchmark against which all other manufacturer’s red dot sights were compared – the CompML2 red dot sight builds on that success.
