Easy to use

The MPS3 is easy to use which allows the user to concentrate on the target and operate the sight even when wearing heavy winter gloves.

It is ideal for use on medium and heavy support weapons mounted on vehicles such as helicopters and naval vessels.

Can be used 24 hours a day

The Aimpoint MPS3 is a non-magnifying sight with unlimited eye relief allowing rapid target acquisition. The MPS3 features manually adjustable reticle brightness for all light conditions. Thanks to its NVD compatibility, the MPS3 can be used 24 hours a day.

Battery lifetime of 80,000 hours

Aimpoint’s revolutionary ACET technology gives the Aimpoint MPS3 an improved LED and an impressive battery lifetime of 80,000 hours of continuous use on a single AA battery.

A user friendly 3-step ballistic compensator

A mount has been designed for use with the MPS3 – the Aimpoint MGMount. The MGMount features a user friendly 3-step ballistic compensator for target distances 200, 800, and 1,200 meters (220, 875, and 1,310 yards).

Ballistic compensation can be changed fast without losing eye contact with the target, even when you are wearing gloves.
