Aimpoint is releasing two new versions of some of their best selling red dot sights with new and improved 2 MoA dots instead of the standard 4 MoA dots. It doesn’t make the dots any less visible when putting it on target but covers less of said targets when trying to make precision shots. BTW, I think a Ruger Gunsite Scout rifle with an Aimpoint would make a mighty fine deer rifle. Must put this theory to the test sometime…

  1. The Ruger Gunsite model scout rifle is very interesting to me. I’d like to get one some day. I’ve never taken a class at Gunsite, but I have taken a couple of classes at Front Sight in Nevada. Why is it that in numerous magazines and blogs I see references to the Gunsite school, but not once have I ever seen a mention of the Front Sight school, which I believe teaches many more students. Is there some kind of boycott going on?

  2. Will they be the same price or more expensive? I just wish Aimpoint would make a budget version of the micro.

  3. I was interested in their Scout Rifle too, right up until I saw they have a 16.25″ barrel on it. I think I’ll go with Savages 10 FCP-SR. 24″ fluted and threaded bull barrel, AccuStock, AccuTrigger, 10 round detachable box mag, less than 9 lbs, and only a coulple hundred bucks more… yes please.

  4. I just bought one of these rifles and am considering putting an Aimpoint H-1 Micro on it using a standard mount. I’m wondering in the picture above if the Aimpoint sits low enough on the Picatinny rail to achieve one-third co-witness with the irons. Kind of hard to tell in that photo.

    Anyone know?
