took me a while to find this post, looking forward to more information and had a suggestion...any chances of a similar model for mounting on dual illumination RMRs?  I know it would be a pain, but I have an idea and could sketch it out if you were interested.  I obviously don't have the resources to pursue it or I would be doing my own thread.
Edit: Actually your current prototype looks like it might work, if mounted on the outboard side of the RMR...depending on mounting screws and size of course
Impatiently waiting for more news

Just in to acknowledge that I'm waiting for an address to send my money to.

Too bad it looks like a good product I was interested in.

Don't know if it's one and the same, but the Feb issue of American Rifleman is advertising the REM-21, a wash-out remover for the M-21 sight.  Looks a lot like the earlier prototype AIM, but now with a variable light output and CR2032 battery instead of CR123.

Thanks for the heads up.

======================

ETA: It just came in the mail.
Mine came with a small Allen key and a longer screw, plus 2 additional batteries in packaging.

Installed easily, fits well, looks like it was made by Mepro.

Works great on initial power-up.  It's light out, so I went into a dark closet for comparison.
Works well from the dark closet to the yard outside the window.

I'm happy, I'll post something if I become unhappy.

I have an X95 with the standard buttstock pad.
Several spare batteries fit inside the stock just fine, just above the hinge.

Just got mine in the mail today.  Agree on all points except I didn't get the extra batteries.

Goes on in about 10 seconds, and is great if you're planning to use a flashlight in the dark, which almost always will wash out your reticle in the middle of your bright spot.

The only downside -- the glow from the led will scatter throughout the light collectors, and is visible on the left side as well as the front... the brighter your setting, the more glow leaks out.  This could be a bad thing if you're trying to stay stealthy.

I am so glad I found this forum. Just ordered REM-21 and I am anxious to try it.

This AIM project looked very promising. I would prefer CR123 battery over CR2, since rechargeable CR123 exist and it is slimmer (although taller) than CR2, but anyway, design was superb.

I need to test it more under different light conditions, but after initial test, I am not so impressed. Build quality is very good though.

It helps with wash out, but even at the brightest "10" setting, I often had trouble finding the reticle ("X") on sunlit targets.

I'm gonna keep the unit, but will probably take it off and save it for much later when tritium dies...

My dream M21 illumination add-on would be lower profile (REM-21 really stands out), less brightness levels with off positions between each setting just like some scopes with illumination have, or maybe even just night/day/off, but most importantly with much brighter day setting.
