Aimpoint’s newly introduced Carbine Optic ($479.66) now ranks as one of our favorite (if not our absolute-favorite) non-magnifying red-dot optic for under $500. The Carbine Optic is designed specifically for modern sporting rifles, and draws on Aimpoint’s proven technologies to create a high-quality, entry-priced red-dot optic for any hunting or tactical need. It comes with an integral mount that will clamp right onto any Picatinny rail or Weaver base and it’s ready to mount and shoot right out of the box.

Aimpoint-Car-Optic It features Aimpoint’s award winning ACET Technology that wrings 10,000+ hours out of a single Duracell 3-volt DL1/3N battery (included), a precise 2-MOA red dot with nine brightness settings and captive, screw-off windage and elevation adjustment dial caps. Built on a 30mm, black-anodized aluminum alloy tube, its fixed-height mount co-witnesses with AR-15 backup iron sights. The 2-MOA red dot provides fast and accurate target acquisition and tracking, and the entire sight is fully waterproof. Other features include unlimited field of view, parallax-free viewing and unlimited eye relief. It measures 4.75” L x 3.0” H x 2.0” W and weighs only with mount and battery.
