The Armasight AIM (Advance Integrated Mount) is a ground-breaking and exciting new concept. This night vision accessory allows the operator to convert our night vision monoculars to a weapon sight. AIM is housed in a low-profile housing which also incorporates a Picatinny mount on the underside, and a dovetail mount on the top. By mounting AIM onto your rifle, and fitting either our night vision monoculars or AIM optional day optics, the AIM can be bore-sighted to your rifle, meaning that the operator can switch between modes as required.
Unlike conventional systems that require the night vision unit to be mounted behind a day optic, AIM projects the reticle directly into the Night Vision monocular lens! In practice, what this means is that there is no longer a reduced field of view through the night vision device, or any shadowed area that is difficult to see through (caused by conventional red-dot sights optics or outer edges). A small “HUD” type prism on the front of the AIM unit projects a 65MOA “Circle” and single 3.2MOA center aiming “Dot” directly into the night vision lens. The electro-optical aiming system consists of a collimated LED diode module, with dedicated windage and elevation adjustments, prismatic output window, power supply and 0-to-11 brightness adjustment switch.
Manufactured to high tolerances from aluminum alloy, the AIM mount system is light, robust, and designed to fit any Weaver or MIL STD 1913/Picatinny rails. Additionally the Armasight AIM features lockable, adjustable quick-release levers for easy, quick and reliable mounting and removal.
The Armasight AIM is an excellent choice for the on-a-budget night time hunter SOF assaulter constantly evaluating mission gear for size and weight, or for a police officer that needs to switch from patrolman duty to SWAT operation.
