Does anyone know what brand of optic is sitting on the UMP as shown on the HK website?
Is that an Aimpoint PRO?

Thanks guys.

In that picture it appears to co-witness the irons. It sure looks like an aimpoint, but I've never seen an ultra low mount like that for them like that.

Sure does look like an Aimpoint. :wink:
I wonder what mount it is on because like skullbox said, it appears to co-witness.

I have an extra low mount I purchased from Larue to run on my POF upper (has a higher rail than most ar uppers). I can look it up when I get home.

I have a PRO and i'd love to know who makes that mount. I'm not entirely thrilled with the Eotech i have on mine now.

Could be a Warne or Talley 30mm mount. Definitely an Aimpoint optic.

that is in fact an aimpoint. but a clone will also work. the ring is an Aimpoint #122243, seen here:

Aimpoint SR 30 MM X-Wide Rings FREE S&H 12243, 12244. AimPoint Red Dot Sight Accessories.

it will give a co-witness but its below a typical 1/3 lower co-witness with an HK rail (UMP/USC irons are really low as well),I hear HDPS top rails are a little lower though, so It may give a better view. if I was to mount mine up like this, the most comfortable view is with the red dot floating at the top of the hood of the front sight.

I use this same ring on my mp5 clones with the aimpoint/B&T 10266 low mount, for a perfect co-witness

here is mine with a primary arms red dot quick mounted (only 2 screws)


quick and dirty view of the 'co-witness' (again, quick mount, not sighted), the front sight post is actually more visible than this, but this is the best I could do for you guys with the Iphone.


the view thats probably easiest to use.


this quick mock up may have just made HDPS a sale on rails, damm.

Great info on the Aimpoint ring, fullmann. Most of us already have the HDSP upper rail.

TooSixy, can you measure the height of your HDPS rail for me?

If it is in fact lower than my HK rail, I may have to get it.
