New ACRO models by Aimpoint
Why is it a characteristic one? Well, the Aimpoint ACRO series of collimators, apart from compact dimensions (mini red dot sight - MRDS), were created as optics with a closed emitter - unlike competing models of this type of optics such as the Trijicon RMR or Leupold Delta Point Pro.
The function of the closed emitter is, among other things, to protect the inside of the collimator against dirt, and in the case of such, easier removal of impurities from the lenses.
The new ACRO C2 and P2 models, which were just released by Aimpoint, are characterized by a change in the power source to the CR2032 battery. The battery provides 50,000 hours of continuous work (approx. 5 years). The battery compartment is located on the side of the collimator, which undoubtedly facilitates its replacement.
The second innovation is the possibility of installing lens covers. The accessory is available separately.
The collimator also has an improved LED module for even higher quality dots - 3.5 MOA. The manufacturer ensures that the housing is durable and has easily passes the tests of 20,000 shots mounted on a gun firing .40 S&W ammunition and immersion to a depth of 25 meters (depending on the model). The C2 version is intended for the commercial market, while the P2 version was designed for uniformed services.
Although the collimator was designed mainly for use with handguns, it can be successfully mounted on carbines and shotguns using dedicated mounts of different heights.
The spacing of the mounting screws, i.e. the "Foot print" has not changed. The price of the P2 model announced at the manufacturer's press conference is € 527 + VAT.
