Shortest model sight yet! This sight is smaller and lighter than the other HWS sights and runs on a single 123 battery. With the new single battery configuration, the XPS allows more rail space than ever, leaving more room for rear iron sights, magnifiers or NV mount. Smaller, lighter and always fast; the XPS series is a great compact option for your platform.
Single transverse 123 battery to reduce sight length
Shortened base only requires at most 2 3/4 inch of rail space
Battery cap and latch are eliminated and replaced with a simple O-ring, tethered cap; better sealing is achieved
Average battery life at brightness level 12 is roughly 600 hours
The XPS2 is not Night Vision compatible, for Night Vision compatibility see the XPS3 sights.
The finest sight Aimpoint has ever produced and the current issue of the US Army's CCO (Close-Combat-Optic). High position battery compartment allows for easy switch access when the optional 3x magnifier is employed. Includes a complete QRP2 Mount w/AR15 spacer. Displays a smaller 2MOA aiming dot.
