CHAPTER I
1.1. Presentation
The CompM XD and CompML XD Reflex Sights are rugged precision
electronic optical red dot sights developed for military, law enforcement
and civilian applications. Collimated reflex 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 horizontal and vertical movement of the
user’s eye while remaining fixed on the target, eliminating any need for
centering. Further, the sight allows for unlimited eye-relief.
The CompM XD is compatible with 1st , 2nd and 3rd generation night
vision devices, while the CompML XD is optimized for applications
which do not require night vision compatibility.
Aimpoint has introduced the XD technology, a radical advancement in
red dot sighting performance with a 300% brighter dot and 500%
longer battery life.
WARRANTY : Aimpoint guarantees this product to be free from
original manufacturer defects in material and / or workmanship for a
period of two years from the date of purchase. The warranty is valid
provided that the sight has not been misused, disassembled or tampered
with in any way.
This warranty agreement is limited to the original owner and is not
transferable.

CHAPTER II
OPERATION UNDER NORMAL CONDITIONS
2.1. ASSEMBLY AND PREPARATION FOR USE
Warning: Insure the weapon is unloaded and the selector is in the
”safe” position before attempting to install, remove or perform
maintenance on the sight.
2.1.1. Installing Battery
a)
Remove battery cap by turning it counterclockwise.
b) Insert battery with positive (+) end toward cap.
Caution while replacing battery:
(This procedure is not necessary when the sight is unused)
Before installing battery cap, inspect threads on battery housing and
battery cap to ensure that they are free of moisture and dirt and that
the O-ring in the battery cap is present. Failure to do so could result
in loss of electrical power and shorten battery life.
c) Install battery cap by turning clockwise until snug. Hand tighten
only. Using tools could damage equipment.
d) Verify that red dot is present by turning the rotary switch
clockwise.
2.1.2. Installing Ring and Sight on the weapon
CompM/ML are designed for installation on most types of weapons.
a)
Remove battery cap and battery.
b)
Assembly the ring around the sight and mount the ring on the
appropriate base (a Weaver or Picatiny base).
c)
Tighten first the lower screw of the ring with the Allen key to
ensure a tight fit to the base and then tighten the two upper
screws.
d)
Finally control that all 3 screws are firmly tightened around the
sight.
e)
Reinstall battery and battery cap.

2.2. OPERATING PROCEDURES
2.2.1. Zeroing
CompM/ML are delivered in a centered position. Normally this means
that only small adjustments are necessary.
CAUTION: Do not continue to adjust windage and elevation
mechanisms if you encounter resistance.
The elevation adjustment screw is located on top of the sight, while
the windage screw is located on the right or left side, depending
on how the sight has been mounted on the weapon.
a) Open front and rear lens covers.
b) Turn the rotary switch clockwise until the red dot has a sufficient
intensity to contrast against the target.
c) Remove the windage and elevation adjustment caps.
NOTE : Each click of the adjustment screw corresponds to a 4 mm
movement of the point of impact at 25 meters, (30 mm at 200 meters
and 45 mm at 300 meters).
d) Insert adjustment tool (coin, screwdriver, knife) or cartridge
casing in adjustment screw slot and turn as follows:
•
To move the point of impact to the right, turn windage adjustment
screw counterclockwise (clockwise if screw located on left side).
•
To move the point of impact to the left, turn windage adjustment
screw clockwise (counterclockwise if screw located on left side).
•
To move the point of impact up, turn elevation adjusment screw
counterclockwise.
•
To move the point of impact down, turn elevation adjusment
screw clockwise.
e) Confirm zeroing by firing at least three shots at a zeroing target.
Check impact points on zeroing target to confirm accuracy and
repeat above procedure if required.
f) After initial firing, ensure that the mount and sight are secure.
g) Turn rotary switch to OFF position (counterclockwise).
h ) Close front and rear lens covers.

e)
f)
Extreme heat (moist or dry). No special procedures required.
Extreme cold. Extreme cold will shorten battery life. Keep
spare batteries in your inner pockets to keep them warm.
Salt air. No special procedures required.
Sea spray, water, mud and snow. Ensure that battery cap and
two adjustment screw caps are tight before exposing the sight to
sea spray, mud and snow or before immersing the sight in water.
Hand tighten only.
Keep lens covers 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.
Dust storms and sand storms. Keep lens caps closed when
sight is not being used.
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 take away stains (sand, grass…) : blow away the dirt.
- To clean lenses : mist up the lenses and dry them with a smooth
piece of cloth.
