Does anyone make a killflash for the Aimpoint T1?

Also, where is the right place to post questions about scopes/red dots, etc.?

There are no commercially available "kill flashes" for the AImpoint micros, or flip up caps for that matter. (GG&G has a mount with built in caps) Someone is work on covers but not a kill flash that I am aware of.

do you really need one? i got one on my compm and frankly don't care for it. not a sniper and it REALLLY limits the light coming into the optic. especially at low light.
The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in
defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more
important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is
supplemental.

Finally got around to calling Aimpoint. Sounds like there is one made for the T1. Oddly enough, it also sounds like no one is selling it. I'm waiting for more answers.

Does anyone know if the Primary Arms Micro killflash can be made to work on the T1? One is threaded and one is not, so I know it won't just pop right on there. Some rigging would be required. But size wise, would it fit?

Beer Slayer, I guess that's a question that can be asked for any killflash on any gun.

Cut up a pair of knee highs and make your own. Use a rubber band to hold in place

I believe the most of the accessories from the Vortex Sparc are interchangeable with the T1/H1's. I know the mounts are. Vortex makes a killflash for the Sparc. Might try that?

The kill flash for the PA micro and sparc screw on. The aimpoint doesn't accept them, no threads on the front lens housing.

That interesting because if they manufacture the item one would think that they would at least list it on their website.

Yes, it is odd. I didn't really get into the 'why' of it with them. And have not heard back. I assumed it was because the T1 is marketed so heavily to the military, and the killflash was an item they were only providing to the military. May have to try the stocking thing. You're talking women's hose, right?

I never would of thought that the silly scope cover of all things would be as big of a pain as it is on the T1, so I would like a killflash as well simply to be able to keep the thing clean and ditch that cover, but I have ot assume that if your using a T1 in combat, its gonna be the shooting haj in the face from 20 meters that gives away your position and not the lesns flare.

Stupid mistake on Aimpoint's part.
