Maintenance of your Aimpoint® Sight

Aimpoint® red dot sights don't require any particular maintenance while used under normal conditions.
Even so we recommend our sight users to read the following information.

Under severe weather conditions - note this:
  • Extreme heat (moist or dry). No special procedures required.
  • Extreme cold. Extreme cold might shorten battery life.
  • Dust storms and sand storms. Keep lens covers closed when sight is not being used.
  • Salt air. No special procedures required.
  • High altitudes. No special procedures required.
  • Sea spray, water, mud and snow. Ensure that the battery cap and the two adjustment caps are tightened before exposing the sight to sea spray, mud, snow or before immersing the sight in water - hand tighten only.
    Clean lenses with lens paper
    or cloth and wipe the sight dry as soon as possible after exposure to water, sea spray, mud or snow.
Handling recommendations:
  • Always keep lens covers closed whenever the sight is not in use.

  • Check the battery in the sight once in a while during the years of use, to avoid leakage that can be harmful to the sight.

Aimpoint® sight lens cleaning

The lenses shall never be cleaned with fingers, always use lens paper or cloth.

If no lens paper or cloth is available:

  • To clear away debris (sand, grass etc.): blow away the dirt.
  • To clean lenses: mist up the lenses or pour clean water on the lenses. Wipe them dry with a soft piece of cloth.
