Aimpoint announces the new CompM5

London, England – September 12, 2017 – Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in reflex sighting technology, has announced the addition of the new Aimpoint® CompM5™ sight to their professional product line. Powered by a single AAA battery, and weighing just 147 grams (5.19 ounces), the CompM5 takes its place as the most compact optic in the Aimpoint® Comp™ Series family of sights.

Aimpoint_CompM5

Originally created to meet the needs of a specific official end user, the CompM5 is now being offered for sale worldwide as contract commitments and production levels permit. The compact size of the CompM5 was made possible by the sight being powered by a single AAA battery. These small and lightweight batteries are inexpensive and easy to find almost anywhere in the world. Readily available alkaline versions of the AAA simplify logistics, and eliminate the potential shipping hazards inherent in lithium batteries. Like the other Comp Series sights, the CompM5 boasts an extremely long battery life – with over 5 years of constant-on use at intensity level seven.

Aimpoint_CompM5 2

The CompM5 is fully submersible up to 45 meters (150 feet), and is compatible with all generations of Night Vision Devices, as well as Aimpoint’s professional magnifier line. A military grade optical lens system gives the CompM5 exceptional light transmission and dot clarity, making the sight operationally parallax free, and providing a crisp, clear dot even under magnification.

Aimpoint_CompM5 4

“The Aimpoint Comp Series has been established as the worldwide standard for military grade reflex sights for over 20 years. The new CompM5 sight provides professional end users the same levels of performance provided by our full-sized sights in a much more compact optic,” said Lennart Ljungfelt, President of Aimpoint AB. “This new product saves size and weight for the operator, with no sacrifice in overall performance.”

  • Aiming Dot Size: 2+/- 0.5 MOA
  • Battery Type: One AAA size 1.5V Alkaline LR03 or Lithium FR03
  • Battery life – Day Time Use: 5 years (50,000 hours) of continuous use at position 7, more than 1 year at position 8 and more than 10 years at NVD-setting (position 1-4).

TriggrCon 2017 – A Walk Around the Range and the Show

If you were unable to make it to the 2017 TriggrCon that occurred in Tacoma, WA between July 27-30, here is a quick walk around the range and the show.

TriggrCon resembles a mini-version of SHOT Show with a much more intimate setting.  The public is welcome and the crowds were manageable.

(NOTE:  The photos shown do not cover the entirety of either the range or the show, but should give you a sense of what both were about.  Additionally, some of the shots from the show were taken before the doors opened and do not reflect the size of the crowd that attended.)

Historic Handgun Innovation from Graham Combat

I will preface this post with the disclaimer that I have ZERO affiliation with nor do I do work for Matt Graham or Graham Combat, so this write up is non-solicited.
 
I took a training class from Matt Graham earlier this year during a closed LE course.  During the course I had a closed-door meeting with Matt along with one other LEO with a verbal NDA regarding the contents of the meeting.

I guess the proverbial cat is out of the bag as Graham Combat just released the video below.
I encourage you to watch the video, though it is almost 15 minutes in length.  I know that attention spans are usually too short to watch that length of video, but it is worth the view.
cropped-G_gren_black-270x270
Matt has developed an entirely new ideology and platform for handgun sighting systems.  I believe that this system will be commonplace in the future, but will take a while for all manufacturers to get on board.
As the video shows, when shooters get their hands on a handgun with this shooting system, the response is usually the same.  Though I may have been a little more animated in my response that may or may not have included a few “holy shit’s” and “what the fu**’s” in there.
Breach Bang Clear attends a Graham Combat pistol course.

I have been a shooter for over two decades and have worked within the firearms industry  for over half of that.  I have spent the past seven years attending  SHOT Show and having a first hand account of new products, including a lot that have never made it to market.

In my absolute honest opinion, this is near the top of the list of the most innovative and ingenious ideas to hit the firearms industry since I have been involved.  The below video is good and explaining how the sighting system works, but  does not do justice to having it in your hand and seeing the sights for the first time.

I cannot wait to get a platform in my hand with this sighting system installed.  TOTAL.GAME.CHANGER!

 Matt does a great job in the video explaining the nuances of how the system works, so I will leave it up to him.
