Aimpoint's been keeping a secret. The company developed a new mini red dot sight for a European customer.

The new sight is clearly visible in product photos of B&T's new Universal Service Weapon displayed on a French tactical outfitter's website.

We don't know anything about the new sight, other than what we can glean from the text describing the B&T USW (translated below, courtesy of Google Translate). So far, it's called the Nano. Other than that, it's all rumor and guesswork. We've reached out to Aimpoint USA for comment, but they've yet to respond.

The news of the Nano lines up with the chatter we heard at SHOT Show about a few new sights coming from Aimpoint.  We can't explain the significance of the B&T specific serial number marking, though.

Translated text describing the B&T USW as seen on >TR Equipment's website:

Following the attacks of Paris, the Swiss manufacturer B & T has just introduced a new weapon, which is not a gun or a rifle or a PDW. Designed to equip units intervening early, the USW wants a police weapon exclusively semiautomatic, barely more cumbersome than a service pistol but likely to be shouldered. Thus, agents retain the ability to respond to short, while having the ability to neutralize terrorist up to 70 m with the folding stock and the new Aimpoint sight ultra compact Nano.

Available from November 2016, the USW A1 is characterized by its aluminum housing type CZ 75 (1160 g) and the DA / SA platinum. But a release polymer (980 g) launched striker is also expected to appear early next year. Retaining identical dimensions (253/468 x 164 x 43 mm), 2 models have a Picatinny rail, chargers 17/19/30 hits, a threaded barrel for adapting a silencer, or yet an additional carcass rail for guiding in the holster.

Specifically designed, it incorporates MOLLE attachment and has a hinged protection for optronic aiming. Authorizing the port with the butt folded or unfolded, this level of retention holster 3 also proves compatible with tactical flashlight B & T PLA. Likely to interest marksmen, the weapon will be delivered in complete package with folding stock, Aimpoint sight Nano, lamp APL, holster, cleaning kit and 3 chargers 17 shots … etc.
