Aimpoint Launches New Aimpoint Comp M5 Sight – CMC Has Them Available to Order

Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in reflex sighting technology, has announced the addition of the new Aimpoint CompM5 sight to their professional product line. Powered by a single AAA battery, and weighing just 147 grams (5.19 ounces), the CompM5 takes its place as the most compact optic in the Aimpoint Comp Series family of sights.

Originally created to meet the needs of a specific official end user, the Aimpoint CompM5 is now being offered for sale worldwide as contract commitments and production levels permit. The compact size of the Aimpoint CompM5 was made possible by the sight being powered by a single AAA battery. These small and lightweight batteries are inexpensive and easy to find almost anywhere in the world. Readily available alkaline versions of the AAA simplify logistics, and eliminate the potential shipping hazards inherent in lithium batteries. Like the other Aimpoint Comp Series sights, the Aimpoint CompM5 boasts an extremely long battery life – with over 5 years of constant-on use at intensity level seven.

The Aimpoint CompM5 is fully submersible up to 45 meters (150 feet), and is compatible with all generations of Night Vision Devices, as well as Aimpoint’s professional magnifier line. A military grade optical lens system gives the Aimpoint CompM5 exceptional light transmission and dot clarity, making the sight operationally parallax free, and providing a crisp, clear dot even under magnification.

“The Aimpoint Comp Series has been established as the worldwide standard for military grade reflex sights for over 20 years. The new Aimpoint CompM5 sight provides professional end users the same levels of performance provided by our full-sized sights in a much more compact optic,” said Lennart Ljungfelt, President of Aimpoint AB. “This new product saves size and weight for the operator, with no sacrifice in overall performance.”

Aimpoint produces a complete line of high quality reflex sights for use by military, law enforcement, hunters, and sport shooters worldwide. The company also produces electronic fire control systems for use on crew-served military weapons. CMC Government Supply is an authorized Aimpoint Law Enforcement & Government distributor in Dallas, Texas.

What Would Trade Sanctions Imposed On China To Put Pressure On North Korea Do To The Price And Availability Of All The Things You Buy?

In light of recent international events, we need to get ahead of what could be significant price increases and restricted availability of supply for virtually all the products we sell.  This week, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nation’s made a statement to the U.N. that the U.S. will not allow countries doing business with North Korea to continue to do business as usual with the U.S.  If this becomes a reality, then we could impose high tariffs on Chinese goods or prohibit altogether the importation of certain products from China.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Wednesday called for the cessation of trade with any nation that continues to do business with North Korea in violation of U.N. resolutions.

For Chinese goods, this means prices will go up and supply availability will be affected.  The impact on products made in other countries, as well as those made in the U.S, is the same.  If we cannot obtain Chinese-made products, the demand for similar products made everywhere else, including the U.S., will rise.  This higher demand means higher prices in the U.S.  This will not only disrupt the availability of products, but could raise prices by as much as double digit %’s on many of the goods we purchase for you, regardless of where they are made. Add in the additional panic buying by commercial and civilian customers and we know what the impact will be on our products.

Having been in the law enforcement industry for years and with current year Agency budgets ending in the next few months, I believe this is a key time to evaluate our risk in waiting until the last minute to place our fiscal year end purchases, both yours as Agencies and ours as a distributor.   You see – we are in this with you.

CMC Government Supply currently, and has historically, held quote pricing for 30 days.  As this situation in the global and U.S. economy develops in the coming days, we may need to reduce this time frame.  To even consider this is unheard of in our company’s history.

I think of it this way….  The worst case scenario is pricing and availability changes rapidly and without notice, resulting in high prices, long lead times and possibly limited product availability.  The best case scenario is this all gets resolved with business as usual.  However, it is generally accepted that just the anticipation of increased tariffs will impact prices and availability no matter where our products are made.  If this is the case, our industry, like most others, would find it hard to escape the price squeeze.  By placing our orders sooner versus later and locking in current pricing and availability, we can mitigate some of the risk.  This is not a call for increased spending.  It is an appeal for informed decision-making by thinking through the timing of your budgeted purchasing plan.

These are just my thoughts.  Please consider this when planning for your upcoming fiscal year end purchases.  We are in this with you, and will do our best to continue to support you.
