FBI Choses Aimpoint Duty RDS and CompM4s Sights -The Firearm Blog

The Aimpoint red dot sights probably need no introduction to our readers. It’s just over a year since I reviewed the new Aimpoint Duty RDS, and now it seems that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has come to the same conclusion as myself – it’s a high-quality red dot, priced competitively and you should buy one. The FBI just awarded Aimpoint with a five-year contract, with a maximum amount of $7 million for the  Duty RDS sight. The larger format CompM4s red dot sight was awarded a $4 million contract.

I reviewed the Duty RDS with the 3X-C Magnifier (39mm FlipMount & TwistMount base), but to give the study another dimension I added the Pulsar PSP-V Adapter and two Pulsar clip-on thermals.
