Thus you can see why a machine gun is not also a short barreled rifle; it is not a rifle. And you can see why a barrel is not subject to regulation, or registration, in itself. It is a barrel, it cannot discharge a shot. A receiver alone is also not a short rifle; a short rifle is only a complete weapon that fits into the length parameters outlined.
Aimpoint AB was awarded the first multi-year contract ever for a red dot sighting system by the US Army in 1997. Since then, Aimpoint AB has continued to deliver large quantities of sights to the US Army, US Air Force, US SOCOM, French Army, Swedish Army, Danish Army, Finnish Army, Norwegian Army, Latvian Army, Slovenian Army, and Italian Army. The Aimpoint sight is also currently in use with Special Forces and law-enforcement agencies all over the world and is the standard optical sight in most NATO countries. More than 500,000 Aimpoint sights are in military service today.
Aimpoint sights can be used with both eyes open, giving an unlimited field of view at any distance. Eye relief is unlimited, so the user’s eye position behind the sight does not affect how well the target or the aiming point can be seen. Aimpoint sights also utilize a double lens system, making the sight parallax-free, which means that no matter where on the sight lens the red dot is reflected, the user’s point of aim will be the point of impact, so long as the distance is over 50 yards.
