The Aimpoint Duty RDS (Red Dot Sight) is the red dot sight solution the world has been waiting for – offering Aimpoint quality at a more accessible price point. This compact, high-grade reflex optic was designed to meet the demanding needs of the modern law enforcement officer.

The Duty RDS offers a bright, crisp 2 MOA dot that’s ideal for short to medium-range target engagements.

The turrets provide audible “clicks” when zeroing the optic.

The dot brightness intensity switch is a digital keypad with intuitive buttons that can easily be manipulated while wearing gloves.

The pressure forged aluminum alloy housing provides durability against extreme abuse and drastic temperature changes.

The sight is vibration and shock resistant and submersible up to 80 feet. It is powered by a single CR2032 battery and ACET technology provides over 3 years of constant-on use at daylight position 7 and even longer on the night vision settings.

The Duty RDS comes with a one-piece torsion nut mount and the optic features flip-up lens covers – the front is solid and the rear transparent.

The sight is fully compatible with all generations of night vision devices.
