Review: Aimpoint Micro H-1 Red Dot Sight

If there is anything that is impressive about the Aimpoint Micro H1 ( is that it looks to be more tacticool than the T-1. The red dot Aimpoint Micro H-1 brings a lot to the table and can be used for lots of applictaions.

Skinny looks
The 1.6 inch wide Aimpoint with it comes a lens diameter of three fourths of an inch, the H-1 redefines skinny. The weight on this one too has been reduced dramatically. This Micro is very light. It also feels substantial. Created from aluminium with a half matte finish, the base and the sight itself are rock solid. There is no reason to believe Aimpont cheapened out here. Powered with a 3V Li battery which can be bought form any drug store, the Aimpoint Micro Aimpoint H1 can run continuously for 5 years on one battery.

Great detail
The best thing about the Aimpoint Micro H1 is just how fine this engineered wonder looks. The tool serves for multiple purposes and has 2 nubs which easily adjust windage and controls for elevation. The tool sides are wide but flat. Rotation direction is imprinted into the multi-tool. Those who do not make use of the instruction manual has find this very handy. This tool also features screw caps which can be used for dial adjustment.

When one first gets their hands on the Aimpoint Micro Aimpoint H1, it seems a bit narrow. The smaller sized tube allows for faster close-ups and can be picked without the dot of red itself.
The H1 exhibits 4MOA sized dot therefore it is perfected for competitive hunting and speed shooting. Each unit comes with 12 sets for brightness to be used in varying conditions of light. Setting no.7 works like a charm for crisp picture sight even in sunny conditions.

Once the H-1 is mounted onto the AR platform, the clamp latches onto it keep the lever at one place. The system keeps the zero maintained even in case of re-attachment which is just great for anyone who uses sights.

Final Verdict
There were initial concerns about the small diameter optic but later on it didn’t quite matter. Using the Aimpoint Micro with both your eyes open shall improve peripheral vision. The Aimpoint H1 has been constructed as a solid, great fitted and smarty built sight. This optic is as impressive as can be and really does stand apart from the crowd in terms of specifications and features. The nearly ninja multi-tool is of great help too which comes along with the package.
