2.1.3 Installing the Rubber Cover on CompM3 and ML3
NOTE: The Rubber Cover (10) 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).
b.Put the front part of the sight into the lower opening of the Rubber Cover
(10) and pull it backwards over the rear part of the sight. Be careful not to
pull too hard and far, the Rubber cover (10) could be destroyed (fig. 4) .
c.Re-install the lens covers (8) and (9).
d.When removing the Rubber cover (10) from the sight, do the opposite:
Start by gripping the lower the rear part of the Rubber cover (10) and pull
it upwards and forward, off 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 or left side, depending on how the
sight has been mounted on the weapon. Aimpoint sights can be installed to
support either right hand (fig. 2) or left hand (fig. 3) shooters.
a.Open Front and Rear Lens covers (9) and (8).
b.Turn the Rotary switch (4) clockwise until the red dot has a sufficient
intensity to contrast against target.
c.Insert adjustment tool (coin, screwdriver, knife) or cartridge casing in
Adjustment screw slot (7) and turn as follows:
NOTE: Each click of the Adjustment screws (7) corresponds to a 13 mm
movement of the point of impact at 80 meters, (4 mm at 25 meters, 16
mm at 100 meters and 32 mm at 200 meters or 1/4” at 50 yds, 1/2” at 100
yds and 1” at 200 yds)
• 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
• To move the point of impact down, turn elevation adjustment screw
d.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.
e.After initial firing, ensure that the mount and sight are secure.
f. Turn Rotary switch (4) to OFF position (counter clockwise).
g.Close front and rear Lens cover (9) and (8).
a.Extreme heat (moist or dry): No special procedures required.
b.Extreme cold: Extreme cold might shorten battery life. Keep spare batteries
in your inner pockets to keep them warm.
c.Salt air: No special procedures required.
d.Sea spray, water, mud and snow: Ensure that the Battery cap (2) and the
two Adjustment screw caps (5) are tight before exposing the sight to sea
spray, mud, snow or before submersing the sight into water. Hand tighten
only. Keep Lens covers (8) and (9) closed when the 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) and (9) closed when
the 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 lens paper/cloth is not available:
–– To clear away debris (sand, grass etc): blow away the dirt or rinse with clear water.
–– To clean lenses: mist up the lenses or rinse with clear water and clean
them with a soft piece of cloth.
Discharged battery: Replace Battery (3)
Battery installed incorrectly: Remove and reinstall Battery (3)
with (+) toward Battery cap (2).
Battery is not making good contact: Clean contact surfaces and reinstall Battery (3).
Defective rotary switch: Notify dealer/armourer

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 (8) and (9) closed whenever the sight is not in use.
d.Warehouse storage: Remove Battery (3) and allow lens surfaces to dry
completely (if wet) before closing the Lens covers (8) and (9).
e.To clean lenses refer to CAUTION in CHAPTER III.
f. To reach maximum protection level for all weather conditions, wax is added
into the rubber mixture. The wax will slowly migrate to the surface of the
part. During frequent use this wax will be used up completely and not
noticed by he user. For long time storage, the wax will not be used up as
frequently and will be seen as a grey film on the surface. To restore to its
original condition, please hand wash in warm dishwater.

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 CompM3 and CompML3 sights are using the revolutionary Advanced
Circuit Efficiency Technology, ACET. ACET combines Aimpoint’s superior
accuracy and ease of use with significantly low power usage.
