We think the new Aimpoint Micro T-1 is a great tactical scope. It has a downside however, the scope design does not accommodate flip up lens covers; you cannot purchase any that fit. Yes it comes with the bikini lens covers, but most individuals will loose those in the first month, and they are not the easist lens covers to remove, keep in place or reinstall.
GG&G has a very unique solution, so unique that it has a patent pending. An Accucam Quick Deatch T-1 Mount that includes a built in provision that provides for the installation of a flip up lens cover for the ocular end. In addition to the ocular lens cover being included, the kit also includes a specially prepared flip up lens cover that fits the objective lens. The Aimpoint T-1 easily and solidly installs onto the lightweight GG&G Accucam QD mount with four 3mm screws. The installation wrench is included in the kit. The ocular end of the T-1 scope fits perfectly into the small integral lens cover flange, and while providing the means to mount a flip up lens cover, it does not interfere with the field of view. The T-1 mount is manufactured from solid billet 6061 T6 aluminum and is Type III hard coat anodized matte black per mil-spec. The New GG&G Aimpoint T-1 QD Mount is manufactured to mount directly to the AR15/M16 integral rail. This will position the red dot just above the front sight post, yet is low enough to co-witness with the GG&G MAD, A2, or Spring Actuated A2 BUIS.
The Accucam Quick Detach Locking Lever System provides you with a solid method to quickly install or remove the Aimpoint T-1 from the weapon. The scope can quickly be installed on a dovetail rail in seconds by rotating the Accucam Lever to the locked position. It can then be quickly removed by rotating the Accucam Cam Lever to the unlocked position. Unlike other QD lever systems, it is fully adjustable to fit Weaver and MIL-STD-1913 dovetails. The unique Accucam design allows you to adjust the tension to accommodate out of spec or worn dovetails. The ergonomic finger loop of the lever is easily operated, even with a gloved hand and the round design is virtually snag proof. The Accucam mechanism is manufactured from solid billet 4140 steel and manganese phosphated matte black per mil-spec.
