by American Rifleman Staff - Thursday, March 23, 2017
Aimpoint has been awarded a contract for supply of 30,000 M68 Close Combat Optics (M68CCO) to the U.S. Army. The Aimpoint CompM4s sight is type-classified as the M68CCO when used by the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force. These sights will be supplied with a killFlash anti-reflection device, rubber lens covers, and adapters which allow the sights to be deployed on all versions of the M16 rifle, M4 Carbine, and light machineguns such as the M240 and M249.
Aimpoint has been an optics supplier to the U.S. Armed Forces since 1997. “With the troops counting on us to build the best sights in the world, it's a job we all take very seriously," said Brian Lisankie, President of Aimpoint Inc. "The CompM4s is the standard by which all other reflex sights are measured. These optics are designed to function with complete reliability and accuracy under the harshest conditions, and do so with near-legendary levels of ruggedness and dependability."
Aimpoint produces a complete line of high-quality reflex sights for use by military, law enforcement, hunters, and sport shooters. The company also produces electronic fire control systems for use on crew-served weapons. For more information on Aimpoint products, visit aimpoint.com.
