    First Aimpoint failure

    I own multiple Aimpoints and have been very happy with them, still am. I did have my first failure though, an aimpoint R1 model. Not sure if anyone remembers them but years ago Midway ran a closeout on these for like $299, the catch is they were “silver”, nothing a can of spray paint couldn’t fix. Well, it only works on setting 12 which is almost completely unusable in any condition due to the bloom. I mean, at this point it’s 10 years old, not bad I suppose.

    Aimpoint says the warranty for a personal-use product is at 10 years. Just an FYI.

    I bought one of these back then and wish I bought five more at the price. I bet they will make good on it.

    Aimpoint customer service usually very good. I'll bet they take care of you

    +2 I own an R1 also and the #8 no longer works. Other than that it’s function has been Aimpoint reliable. I wouldn’t expect them to still honor the warranty just hoping the repair/service isn’t cost prohibitive.

    The switch is a weak point on older models, hence why the switch knob are made to be more reliable/durable on the CompM5 models.

    I always wondered if the color was the only difference between the R1 and the H1 models.

    As far as I can remember the only other difference is the R1 doesn’t have the NV settings.

    H1 models didn't/don't, either.
    " Political tags — such as [...], communist, democrat, [...], fascist, liberal, conservative, [...] — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. "
