Aimpoint PRO Patrol Rifle Optic
Designed with input from a distinguished group of current and former professionals, the Patrol Rifle Optic incorporates many never before seen features to maximize this sight's performance within the challenging conditions faced by modern law enforcement. A hard-anodized 30mm tube was utilized, enclosing a high efficiency circuit that allows the sight to be turned on and left on for up to three years using a single battery.
The Aimpoint PRO Patrol Rifle Optic's front lens utilizes a unique band-pass coating, which allows the sight to be used with all generations of night vision devices. The modular QRP2 mount includes a removable spacer that indexes the sight at the optimal height for co-witness with the standard iron sights on AR15/M16/M4 Carbine style weapons. This spacer can be removed to enable the use of the sight on police shotguns or sub-machine guns. The QRP2 mount for the PRO Optic also incorporates a torque-limiting twist knob that provides the optimal level of pressure on the rail while completely eliminating the possibility of over-tightening. Both the PRO Optic's front and rear lenses are recessed within the sight body to provide protection against impact damage, scratches, and fingerprints.
Flip covers are included to further protect the lenses, and a transparent rear lens cover is utilized allowing the user to engage a target with the lens covers closed in a emergency situation. A two Minute of Angle (2 MOA) red dot is utilized to allow maximum accuracy at all distances and under all environmental conditions.
**As of 2012, Aimpoint has removed their LE/Govt/Security ONLY restriction to the PRO.**

C'mon. It's an Aimpoint. Bombproof reliability. Stop being silly and reading reviews. Just buy it. Slap it on your boomstick, throw it in the back of your lifted wrangler, and go train.
The Aimpoint PRO is great. There's a little blue tint to the glass (not unexpected), but it isn't dark enough to be distracting under actual use. Typical Aimpoint goodness! SKD's shipping was fast and the sight was well-packed. The only hiccup was that SKD mailed it "signature required". I wasn't home at the time, so I had to go to the post office the next business day. Fortunately, my schedule allowed for that, but it could be a real PITA for somebody on a more conventional work schedule. However, considering the discount on the PRO, that was a small price to pay. :)
Fantastic company, quality optic. Just be sure to pick a cover if you have the option. I didn't because I didn't see it; It's my fault and now I'm regretting not seeing it. That's the only issue I've had. The optic is incredible! But just wish I read the option to get a cover. It would be nice to have a cover haha.
Great optic.. SKD was fast but shipping thru the post office was slow. USPS is worthless but everyone knows that..
Every product is top shape and the costumer service is unbeatable. You will not be treated better anywhere else
I'm really happy with my purchase. Shipping was fast. The aimpoint pro needs no introduction. Very easy to use and very similar to my issued M68 CCO. The only thing bad is the battery and what I mean about it is that I can't walk into a local big box store and pick up spares. But it's a nice compromise as opposed to spending $800+ for an actual CCO. It's solidly built and it came with a free optic cover. A++ would SKD tactical again.
Been running a Pro for 3 years now. Thousands of rounds downrange, lots of practice, lots of classes, used in rainy and muddy environments, dropped on hard surfaces, getting banged around, dirty, sandy, knocked around the inside of vehicles, fallen over by accident, submerged in bodies of water and I can't hurt this thing. Holds zero without fail and always works. EOD buddy of mine gave me a sheet of 3N batteries so I'm good to go for a while. I've wanted to pick up to a micro dot to be cool but I simply can't justify spending the cash in light of how good the Pro is. Running on a LaRue mount FWIW.
Fast shipping. I got what they said, when they said I'd get it. At a fair price. Excellent. The PRO optic came in excellent condition and is a tank. First order with SKD and they gained a return customer in this transaction.
Great optics for the cost, rugged and dependable at a great cost.
