Aimpoint Micro H-1 Review

Aimpoint Micro H-1 red dot sight

Aimpoint Micro H-1 red dot sight

The Aimpoint Micro H-1 4 MoA red dot sight was designed specifically for hunting and is tiny. The entire H-1 red dot scope weights just four onces – one once more than a set of flip up covers for an Eotech.  Designed to be immensely tough, the H-1 Micro can be fitted to any firearm, from an auto pistol or revolver up to a 10 gage shotgun or .50BMG and has won a niche for itself in bow hunting. The Aimpoint Micro H-1 can also be piggybacked on top of higher power optics to get them on target or to provide a back-up in the event of failure of the main optic or should game appear at very close range.  The 4 MoA dot makes for fast shooting on running and flying targets. Many mounting options are available for these red dot scopes from aftermarket suppliers or from Aimpoint themselves.

Easy to carry and fast to aim

Small enough to replace iron sights in any hunting application, these sights can be used on any type of gun or bow:

  • A lightweight rifle with an H-1 Micro mounted on it is still a lightweight rifle!
  • A hunting revolver with an H-1 Micro installed is just as easy to carry and is much faster to aim.
  • On a bow, the parallax free H-1 Micro replaces the a peepsight, enabling you to shoot accurately in lower light.
