Aimpoint is the recognized worldwide leader and originator of red dot sighting technology. It all started in 1974, when a Swedish sport shooter and hunter attempted to improve his moving-target shooting performance.

With the financial help of entrepreneur Gunnar Sandberg, he started developing an electronic red dot sight, and in 1975 Aimpoint AB was founded.

The original Aimpoint® sight was designed for hunters and sport shooters. In the early 90’s, law enforcement and military users started to understand how the red dot sighting technology could improve the speed and accuracy in their field of operations.

In 1997 we signed the first contract with the US Army to deliver 100,000 Aimpoint CompM sights. Also known as the M68CCO, these sights have been continuously improved and over 1 million units have been delivered to the US army and US Air Force since then. Nowadays, Aimpoint® sights are in service with most NATO countries and numerous police agencies and special teams worldwide.

We have two production facilities, located in Malmö and Gällivare in Sweden. The production meets the highest quality standards and Aimpoint is certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2015.

During our more than 45 years of working closely with experienced hunters and marksmen as well as professional users around the world, the Aimpoint electronic red dot sight has revolutionized mid-range to short-range moving target shooting techniques, and become the number one choice for reliability, durability and performance.

There are millions of hunters, sport shooting enthusiasts, police and military personnel who use Aimpoint® red dot sights.
