We’ve tested a lot of Aimpoint gear over the past few years and have never been disappointed. Products like the Aimpoint Micro H-1, Aimpoint PRO, Aimpoint Micro T-2 and Aimpoint 3x Magnifier have always ended up at the top of the price / performance spectrum in my book.

Perhaps one of the reasons that Aimpoint products work out well can be chalked up to experience. Until today, I had no idea that the company was 40 years old.

According to the company, the Aimpoint Electronic was the company’s product introduced way back in 1975 when bell-bottom jeans ruled the earth and people wore polymer clothes for the first go around.

Forty years ago, a small group of Swedish entrepreneurs developed a sighting technology for use by European hunters. They had no idea that the company which formed from these humble beginnings would ultimately become the worldwide standard in reflex sighting technology.” said Lennart Ljungfelt, President of Aimpoint AB. “We have reached this company milestone by always placing the needs of the customer first, and by designing high quality products that can survive in any conditions. On this 40th anniversary of the company, we reaffirm our commitment to the customer, and look forward to the future.

Congratulations to the folks at Aimpoint. We’re looking forward to seeing what you’ve got up your sleeves for the next 40 years.
