And for a LOT less than $5000-$7000 too!

Brilliant!

And for a LOT less than $5000-$7000 too!

Not to mention giving you a rifle round and not a handgun round.

That's maybe a $300 piece, right?

It does say "Aimpoint" on it. :uhoh:

But I can't imagine it being more than $300-400. Hopefully less.

In the words of everyone's favorite Khazakistani TV journalist, "Very nice!"

OK, I'll bite.

How do you use the standard, forward looking optics on the gun when this is mounted?

By holding the gun sideways. You clip it on and hold the gun sideways. There are more pictures on the links.

Nothing new. The Aussie company MTC has something called the parasight

And prism rifle sights go back at least to WWI and trench warfare.

Periscopic sights for shooting around corners are very old inventions.

How many have been available as drop-in accessories for the average shooter?

Chipper I guess we were looking at them as objects to own and enjoy, other people just didn't I guess.

Common as people say they are I've never seen anyone at the range with one to date. Funny:) If I can get one of these for a carbine class in the summer it will kick ass.

Just make sure you keep the muzzle pointed the right way! :p

The Germans actually did that in WWII. It worked, kinda...

Wow, just YESTERDAY I was wishing I could shoot around corners.

well if were talking history, this is nothing more than a revival of the periscope rifle... circa ww1

Yes it's weak and sucks. No-one should buy one, everyone should point out how unoriginal it is. Then Aimpoint will give them away for free and I'll get one.

You all do your part and I'll do mine.

yeah, it was good for about 400 rounds, then, ... well I guess it wasn't a corner fire anymore.
