Did you know that Aimpoint has never sold a flat dark earth-finished sight in the United States? It’s true. But that’s all about to change; the Swedish company announced it is now offering a limited run of Micro T-2 red dots in FDE to U.S. consumers.

Micro T-2 FDE Coating

These Micro T-2 FDE sights boast a Cerakote H-Series coating. The press release describes it as a thin-film ceramic coating that bonds with the sight’s aluminum alloy housing. Cerakote finishes are famous for being corrosion and chemical-resistant. They’re also touted for UV and thermal stability, in addition to durability in harsh conditions.

“We needed to match our choice of color surface finish with the durability and performance of the Micro T-2 sight,” Jonas Ardemalm, Aimpoint’s director of commercial sales & marketing, said in the presser. “Cerakote offers an extremely durable coating that has been proven to perform under very demanding conditions, and it offers advantages beyond typical paint applications. We are very happy to offer this enhanced Micro T-2 to our customers in the USA.”

Aimpoint says select dealers will be selling the Micro-T2 FDE on a “test” basis. They’ll likely sell out quickly. The MSRP isn’t listed in the presser, but the Micro T-2 FDE is going for $910 at MidwayUSA, and $909.90 at Optics Planet.

The standard Micro-T2 was first introduced in 2014. See below for a rundown of features. For more on Aimpoint, visit aimpoint.com.
