Aimpoint 1000 which was launched in 1987 was based on the same principles as Mark III but had a revised design to make the sight slimmer and lighter.
The automatic light adjustment was replaced by a 9-level switch and a few other changes were made to achieve a more competitive price level. Competitors, above all from Asia, were at this time introducing imitations of our products on the market.
