    New Aimpoint M5

    Soldier Systems has a blurb about the "new" Aimpoint M5 with battery compartment on bottom, not top. I wonder when they will be available?

    That’s interesting. When I talk to them at shot show they said that if they put the battery compartment on the bottom then it would not be able to use standard micro mounts so maybe they figured out a way

    New Aimpoint M5

    So the bottom of the body is a lot lower than the other Comp5.

    Iím really digging this. No battery in my FOV. I love it.

    I've spent a few moments over the years notionalizing on the battery compartment position, and it really can be in the way no matter where it's located... depending on what you are looking at. For example if you had an intruder at gunpoint, the low battery compartment could be occluding his hands if the dot is center mass.

    The upside to this design, in my opinion, is the reduced top end bulk. My battery compartment cap takes a regular beating and the finish is well worn. I don't mind it, but reducing the top side bulk is nice.

    Thatís a very good point. I really donít see the attraction of these over the T-2 for most people.

    I have both and I honestly don't notice much if any difference looking through the two of them side by side (other than the battery compartment which hasn't been an issue, at least for me). I think the T2 is probably the gold standard for a RDS at this point.

    I like the M5 over the T2 because of where the knob is and it's crisp not mushy adjustments, the protective objective lens, and AAAs give a longer run time.
