Save this for later

Heckler and Koch, together with its partner Aimpoint, has received a contract to supply red dot sights for the new HK416 F French assault rifle, the company announced on 19 July.

The contract, awarded by the French Defence Procurement Agency, includes the supply of up to 120,000 CompM5 sights over a period of six years. 

CompM5 is a compact, lightweight and rugged sight equipped with an AAA battery. Its optical design allows the red dot to follow the movement of the user’s eye while remaining fixed on target, eliminating any need for centering.

The CompM5 is fully submersible up to 45m and is compatible with all generations of night vision devices. A military grade optical lens system gives the CompM5 better light transmission and dot clarity, making the sight operationally parallax free and providing a crisp, clear dot even under magnification.
