The Aimpoint red dot 9000 is currently one of the oldest series of Aimpoint sights still in production, and their 9000 model is a member of their entry-level class. Their popularity was gained on the basis of their classic shape and affordable price, as well as their robustness, quality, and reliability. The Aimpoint 9000 offers a wide selection of various models in both commercial and professional lines of products.
Commercial models are intended for the hunting market and recreational shooting (L, SC, and SC-NV models).
- The 9000L model is primarily intended for hunting in the most extreme weather conditions. Like all Aimpoint red dots, the 9000L is designed to withstand the recoil of the most powerful calibers, making it popular for drive hunting.
- The 9000SC model is a medium-sized red dot that was primarily designed for use on semi-automatic hunting and sporting firearms.
- The SC-NV model was designed for use in combination with night vision devices.
All commercial red dot models are mounted onto firearms by means of two Ø30 mm mounting rings, which are not included.
Professional models are intended for the police and the army (Comp M3, Comp ML3 models), with the exception of the Comp C3 model, which is also intended for the commercial market.
- The Comp C3 model is lightweight and compact, suitable for rifles, bows, and competition pistols. Despite its compact size, the Comp C3 is very robust and can withstand recoil of the most powerful calibers. It is mounted with only one Ø30 mm Weaver ring, which is included.
