ITL AIM1/D

The AIM1/D is an IR laser pointer, which was the IDF standard issue laser pointer from the late 1980's and early 2000's. The AIM1/D was so commonly used in the IDF that when the Negev entered service in the IDF its barrel was factory equipped with an integrated adapter for AIM1/D. The Negev export models, however, lacked this feature unless specifically ordered.

The AIM1/D first entered service in the IDF in the late 1980's and was designed to be mounted under barrel of the Galil SAR between the gas block and the flash hider. When the IDF infantry units switched over to the M16 assault rifles family in the early 1990's, an updated version of the AIM1/D was introduced featuring a new barrel adapter for the M16.

Today, the AIM1/D is no longer manufactured and is currently gradually taken out of service. It is used occasionally, an indication of the impressive effectiveness and rigidness of the device through over two decades of extensive usage.
