Red Dot Sights revolutionized shooting by strengthening and refining aim. With their two main benefits being accuracy and speed, they are a favorite among hunters, soldiers, and target shooters. Among the many Red Dot Sights available today, the Aimpoint Micro T-2 is outstanding.

Launched in 2014 by the company, which is considered an industry leader when it comes to Red Dot Sights, it has consistently remained a favorite among many people. But is it worth buying? Here is an in-depth buying guide to help you decide.

Key Features of the Aimpoint T-2

The Aimpoint T-2 comes packed with a lot of features. Some of the prominent ones include the following:

Red Dot Sight

The T-2 is a robust device with a micro-style red dot, which makes it very small. It uses an LED reflected off an optical lens that floats a targeting reticle in front of the target. With the T-2, you can pin your target way more quickly and accurately than when using other red dot sights and iron sights.

Sturdiness was taken to the next level with the release of this sight. It comes with reinforced protection of the turrets that make it quite robust. It is submersible to an impressive 80 feet. Being waterproof, chemical resistant, vibration resistant, and shockproof make it the ultimate red-dot sight for all outdoor activities.


Finally, it comes with a mount that is quite adequate. Like the rest of the Aimpoint T-2, the mount
