Optical System
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 uses the 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.

WARNING: Insure the weapon is unloaded and the safety selector
is in the ”safe” position before attempting to install, remove or perform
maintenance on the sight.
Less than 0.5 h at field level (MTTR)
2.1.1 Installing Battery
a) Remove Battery Cap (2) by turning it counter clockwise.
b) Insert a battery (type CR2032) with positive (+) end toward Cap.
CAUTION: Install the battery in the battery compartment carefully. Open
the Battery Cap (2). Inspect that the current O-ring is not damaged. Failure
to do so could result in water leakage into the battery compartment.
c) Install Battery Cap (2) by turning clockwise until snug. Tighten with the
provided Tool (9B) only.
d) Verify that red dot is present by turning the Rotary Switch (4) clockwise.
2.1.2 Installing Sight on the weapon
The Micro Sight is designed for installation on most types of weapons,
which have a MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny Rail or Weaver Rail. If your
weapon does not have or support an appropriate base(s), please consult
your dealer, gunsmith or other qualified source.

8. Lens Cover, rubber
9. Tool (3 functions)
10.Shaft (for Base)
11.Locking Bar Installing Sight on a Picatinny Rail
a) Loosen the Shaft (10) by means of the Tool (9C), so that the Locking Bar (11) can clamp around the Picatinny Rail.
b) Install the Sight to the weapon Rail by tightening the Shaft (10). First, ensure that the Sight is correctly positioned and that the
Shaft (10) (=recoil stop) fits into a groove on the Picatinny Rail.
To make sure that the Shaft is firmly tightened, screw the Shaft (10)
clockwise until a light resistance can be encountered. After that, screw
another 1/4 to 1/2 turn.
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).
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 (10) with Locking Bar (11) is firmly
tightened around the weapon Rail.
e) Complete zeroing according to 2.2.1 below.
d) Insert either the two knobs on top of the Adjustment Cap (1) or the two
knobs on the Tool (9A) 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 position 0 (counter clockwise).
h) Close front and rear Lens Covers (8).
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.
2.2.1 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 Rotary Switch (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. Either the two knobs incorporated on top of the
Adjustment Cap (1) or the Tool (9A) shall be used for adjusting the
Adjustment Screw (5). Reverse the Adjustment Cap (1) and the knobs
will fit into the two recesses on the Adjustment Screw (5).
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. Tighten
the 2 Adjustment Caps (1) by hand, and use the Tool (9B) to tighten
the Battery Cap (2). 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.
Discharged Battery:
Battery installed incorrectly: Battery is not making good contact: Defective Rotary Switch:
The Battery Cap is not
enough tightened:
Adjustment screw is at its limit:
Impact point is moving:
Replace Battery.
Remove and reinstall Battery with (+) toward Cap.
Clean contact surfaces and reinstall Battery.
Notify dealer/armourer.
Tighten the Battery Cap so that it gets in contact with the
bottom of the Battery Housing.
Check alignment of Mount to Barrel.
Check Mount and Weapon Rail (or Carry Handle) stability.
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.
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 the 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.
Operator’s and
Maintenance Manual for
To avoid damage to the sights and for the proper assembly of the mount
on the sight, shall the small original screws (M3x4) only be tightened by
hand and with the attached micro tool.
To do this:
1.  Turn the sight upside down. Hold it in your hand with the screw holes up.
2.  Press the mount against the sight and check that there is no gap.
3.  Apply locking compound to the threads and install the screw in the mount.
WARNING: Do not overtighten.
4.  Mount the Screws crosswise. Tighten each Screw until resistance
is felt. Rotate the Bolt Head an additional 1/4 turn to fully tightened.
This is equivalent to 1.0Nm +0.2Nm of torque.
