Aimpoint CompM3 and Aimpoint CompML3
2.1.3 Installing the Rubber Cover on CompM3 and ML3
NOTE: The Rubber Cover shall be mounted to the CompM3 and ML3
after the sight has been installed in the ring.
a) Remove the lens covers (front and rear) and the rubber strap.
b) Put the front part of the sight into the lower opening of the Rubber
Cover and pull the Cover backwards over the rear part of the sight.
Be careful not to pull too hard and far, the rubber could be destroyed
c) Reinstall the lens covers and the rubber strap.
When removing the rubber cover from the Sight, do the opposite way.
Start to pull off the rear part of the sight by gripping the lower rear part of
the rubber cover, pulling the rubber backwards and up over the sight.
2.2.1 Zeroing
Aimpoint’s sights are delivered in a centered position. Normally this means
that only small adjustments are necessary, providing that the base(s) are
properly aligned.
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 side of the sight (fig.3).
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 10 mm movement of the point of impact at 80 meters, (3 mm at 25 meters, 13 mm at
100 meters and 25 mm at 200 meters or 1/4” at 50 yds, 1/2” at 100 yds
and 1” at 200 yds).
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 counter clockwise (clockwise if screw located on left side).
• To move the point of impact to the left, turn windage adjustment
screw clockwise (counter clockwise if screw located on left side).
• To move the point of impact up, turn elevation adjustment screw
counter clockwise.
• To move the point of impact down, turn elevation adjustment screw
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 (counter clockwise).
h) Close front and rear lens covers.
Extreme heat (moist or dry). No special procedures required.
Extreme cold. Extreme cold might shorten battery life.
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, 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.
e) Dust storms and sand storms. Keep lens caps 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:
Adjustment screw is at its limit
Impact point is moving
Check alignment of mount
to barrel
Check mount stability
User’s Manual for
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.

Aimpoint’s Reflex Sights are rugged precision electronic optical red dot
sights developed for civilian, military and law enforcement applications.
Aimpoint 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 sight allows for unlimited eye-relief. The
CompM3 is compatible with 1st , 2nd and 3rd generation night vision
devices, while the CompML3 is optimized for applications, which do not
require night vision compatibility.
The new CompM3 and CompML3 sights are using the new revolutionary Advanced Circuit Efficiency Technology, called ACET, introduced in
ACET combines Aimpoint’s superior accuracy and ease of use with
significantly lower power usage.

b) Insert battery with positive (+) end toward cap.
Caution while replacing battery (not necessary when the sight is
Before installing battery cap, inspect that the O-ring is present and not
damaged. Failure to do so could result in water leakage into the battery compartment.
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
2.1.2 Installing Ring and Sight on the weapon
Aimpoint’s sights are designed for installation on most types of weapons.
If your weapon does not have or support an appropriate base(s), please
consult your dealer, gunsmith or other qualified source.

a) Assemble the sight to the weapon by using Aimpoint´s wide 30 mm
ring or QR-mount. If other standard 30 mm rings are used, make sure
that the ring(s) covers a length of minimum 25 mm or 1” (two standard
rings could possibly be used).
b) Ensure that the sight is correctly positioned in the ring (fig.3).
c) When using lens covers, ensure that they are correctly positioned and
can be opened.
NOTE: make sure that you have space between the bottom front part
of the sight and the top of the base/weapon.
d) Finally, make sure that all screws are firmly tightened around the sight.
e) Complete the zeroing (2.2.1).
