    Brilliant!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
