2.1.2.1 Installing Sight on a Picatinny Rail
a) Loosen the Shaft (11) by means of the Allen Wrench (10), so that
the Locking Bar (12) can clamp around the Picatinny Rail.
b) Install the Sight to the weapon Rail by tightening the Shaft (11).
First, ensure that the Sight is correctly positioned and that the
Shaft (11) (=recoil stop) fits into a groove on the Picatinny Rail.
To make sure that the Shaft is firmly tightened, screw the Shaft (11)
clockwise until a light resistance can be encountered. After that,
screw another 1/4 to 1/2 turn. WARNING! Do not overtighten.
c) When using Lens Covers (8), ensure that they are correctly
positioned and can easily be opened.
d) Finally, make sure that the Shaft (11) with Locking Bar (12) is
firmly tightened around the weapon Rail.
e) Complete zeroing according to 2.2.1 below.
2.1.3 Lens Covers
In order to preclude the loss of the lens covers when removed from
the optical path of the Sight, the lens covers should be removed
downwards. The rubber string will then grab around the Sight and
Base.
2.2. OPERATING PROCEDURES
2.2.1 Zeroing
The Micro Sight is delivered with the red dot in a centered position.
Normally this means that only small adjustments are necessary,
providing that the weapon rail (Picatinny Rail) is properly aligned.
CAUTION: Do not continue to adjust windage and elevation
mechanisms if you encounter resistance.
The Elevation Adjustment Screw (5) is located on top of the sight,
while the Windage Adjustment Screw (5) is located on the right side.
a) Open (remove) Lens Covers (8).
b) Turn the Switch Knob (4) clockwise until the red dot has a
sufficient intensity to contrast against the target.
c) Remove the Adjustment Cap (1) for windage and elevation
adjustment, one at a time. The two knobs incorporated on top of
the Adjustment Cap (1) shall be used for adjusting the Screw (5).
Reverse the Adjustment Cap (1) and the knobs will fit into the two
recesses on the Adjustment Screw (5).
NOTE: Each click of the Adjustment Screw (5) corresponds to a 13
mm movement of the point of impact at 100 meters, (3 mm at
25 meters and 26 mm at 200 meters or 1/2” at 100 yds).
d) Insert the two knobs on top of the Adjustment Cap (1) in the two
holes on the Adjustment Screw (5) and turn as follows:
- To move the point of impact to the right, turn windage adjustment
screw counter clockwise
- To move the point of impact to the left, turn windage adjustment
screw clockwise
- To move the point of impact up, turn elevation adjustment screw
counter clockwise.
- To move the point of impact down, turn elevation adjustment
screw clockwise.
e) Confirm zeroing by firing at least three shots at a zeroing target.
Check points of impact on zeroing target to confirm accuracy and
repeat above procedure if required.
f) After initial firing, ensure that the sight is secure.
g) Turn Rotary Switch (4) to OFF position (counter clockwise).
h) Close front and rear Lens Covers.

TROUBLE SHOOTING PROCEDURES
MAINTENANCE
4.1 RED DOT DOES NOT APPEAR
a) This reflex sight does not require any particular maintenance
while used under normal conditions.
b) Under severe weather conditions please refer to chapter III.
c) Keep lens covers closed whenever the sight is not in use.
d) Warehouse storage: Remove battery and allow lens surfaces
to dry completely (if wet) before closing the lens covers.
e) To clean lenses refer to CAUTION in chapter III.
a) Extreme heat (moist or dry). No special procedures required.
b) Extreme cold. Extreme cold might shorten battery life. It could
also make the Rotary Switch (4) a little harder to turn than at
normal temperatures.
c) Salt air. No special procedures required.
d) Sea spray, water, mud and snow. Ensure that Battery Cap (2)
and the two Adjustment Caps (1) are tightened before exposing
the Sight to sea spray, mud, snow or before immersing the sight
in water. Hand tighten only. Keep Lens Covers (8) closed when
sight is not being used. Clean lenses with lens paper/cloth and
wipe the sight dry as soon as possible after exposure to water,
sea spray, mud or snow.
e) Dust storms and sand storms. Keep Lens Covers (8) closed
when sight is not being used.
f) High altitudes. No special procedures required.
CAUTION: The lenses shall never be cleaned with fingers but with
lens paper/cloth. If no lens paper/cloth available :
- To clear away debris (sand, grass etc): blow away the dirt.
- To clean lenses: mist up the lenses and clean them with a soft
piece of cloth.

CHAPTER I
1.1 PRESENTATION
Aimpoint Micro T-1 Reflex Sight is a small, light and rugged red dot
sight developed mainly for military and law enforcement applications.
Aimpoint red dot sights are designed for the ”two eyes open”
method of sighting, which greatly enhances situational awareness
and target acquisition speed. Thanks to the parallax-free design, the
dot follows the movement of the user’s eye while remaining fixed on
the target, eliminating any need for centering. Further, the Micro T-1
allows for unlimited eye-relief and is compatible with 1st, 2nd and
3rd generation night vision devices.
The Aimpoint Micro T-1 sight uses the new Advanced Circuit
Efficiency Technology, called ACET, which combines Aimpoint’s
superior accuracy and ease of use with significantly lower power
usage.
With the Micro T-1 sight, Aimpoint has introduced an aiming
system that gives the performance of our full-sized sights in the
smallest package possible.

and target acquisition speed. Thanks to the parallax-free design, the
dot follows the movement of the user’s eye while remaining fixed on
the target, eliminating any need for centering. Further, the Micro T-1
allows for unlimited eye-relief and is compatible with 1st, 2nd and
3rd generation night vision devices.
The Aimpoint Micro T-1 sight uses the new Advanced Circuit
Efficiency Technology, called ACET, which combines Aimpoint’s
superior accuracy and ease of use with significantly lower power
usage.
With the Micro T-1 sight, Aimpoint has introduced an aiming
system that gives the performance of our full-sized sights in the
smallest package possible.

In order to preclude the loss of the lens covers when removed from
the optical path of the Sight, the lens covers should be removed
downwards. The rubber string will then grab around the Sight and
Base.
2.2. OPERATING PROCEDURES
2.2.1 Zeroing
The Micro Sight is delivered with the red dot in a centered position.
Normally this means that only small adjustments are necessary,
providing that the weapon rail (Picatinny Rail) is properly aligned.
CAUTION: Do not continue to adjust windage and elevation
mechanisms if you encounter resistance.
The Elevation Adjustment Screw (5) is located on top of the sight,
while the Windage Adjustment Screw (5) is located on the right side.
a) Open (remove) Lens Covers (8).
b) Turn the Switch Knob (4) clockwise until the red dot has a
sufficient intensity to contrast against the target.
c) Remove the Adjustment Cap (1) for windage and elevation
adjustment, one at a time. The two knobs incorporated on top of
the Adjustment Cap (1) shall be used for adjusting the Screw (5).
Reverse the Adjustment Cap (1) and the knobs will fit into the two
recesses on the Adjustment Screw (5).
NOTE: Each click of the Adjustment Screw (5) corresponds to a 13
mm movement of the point of impact at 100 meters, (3 mm at
25 meters and 26 mm at 200 meters or 1/2” at 100 yds).
d) Insert the two knobs on top of the Adjustment Cap (1) in the two
holes on the Adjustment Screw (5) and turn as follows:
- To move the point of impact to the right, turn windage adjustment
screw counter clockwise
- To move the point of impact to the left, turn windage adjustment
screw clockwise
- To move the point of impact up, turn elevation adjustment screw
counter clockwise.
- To move the point of impact down, turn elevation adjustment
screw clockwise.
e) Confirm zeroing by firing at least three shots at a zeroing target.
Check points of impact on zeroing target to confirm accuracy and
repeat above procedure if required.
f) After initial firing, ensure that the sight is secure.
g) Turn Rotary Switch (4) to OFF position (counter clockwise).
h) Close front and rear Lens Covers.

2.1.2.1 Installing Sight on a Picatinny Rail
a) Loosen the Shaft (11) by means of the Allen Wrench (10), so that
the Locking Bar (12) can clamp around the Picatinny Rail.
b) Install the Sight to the weapon Rail by tightening the Shaft (11).
First, ensure that the Sight is correctly positioned and that the
Shaft (11) (=recoil stop) fits into a groove on the Picatinny Rail.
To make sure that the Shaft is firmly tightened, screw the Shaft (11)
clockwise until a light resistance can be encountered. After that,
screw another 1/4 to 1/2 turn. WARNING! Do not overtighten.
c) When using Lens Covers (8), ensure that they are correctly
positioned and can easily be opened.
d) Finally, make sure that the Shaft (11) with Locking Bar (12) is
firmly tightened around the weapon Rail.
