Looks like a computer attached to the rail.
is that a rangefinder ?
next fad will be eeePC's attached to rails
so totally worthless for civi use
It'll be cool in about 10 years when it's smaller.
It's like the AR for ricers transitioning from 16-second, glow-in-the-dark, angry-bee-sounding, 1.4L DOHC VTEC, sticker-laden CRXs to guns
ahhh the nightvision i'm getting already has the infrared flashlight option. need an infrared laser
one sweet NV set up
this isnt new
Honda never made a 1.4L DOHC VTEC engine for cars.
All that stuff is worthless, that rifle has to be too heavy to work around corners in a building.
I just threw out a small displacement for shits and giggles. Either way, no TQ.
what if he designed it for a different purpose ?
Like what, a boat anchor?
idk, covering from a distance?
i wouldn't want to use a NV system when charging in and clearing buildings.
psst, they are smaller
Actually, its very common for that and it can easily be used in cqb.
You blow the lights at night, you have your NV on, yo have the IR laser activated and you and your buddies can easily clear a dark room/building while the enemy doesnt have a chance.
Hard to see, but both of these guys look like they have them on their rifles:
Third guy has it on his, likely the others too if you could see the rifles:
And several other shots with lasers and other things on their rifles. When you are trained to use this stuff, the weight is far outweighed by the benefits of all the "crap" they put on them. Not for civilian needs, but it definitely has its place and isnt too large.
Most of them have it flat on top though, not the side like in that photo the OP posted.
Just look for photos of US soldiers in Iraq and you'll find plenty of them.
Unless, you know, you like shooting at night, without using a huge-ass light.
IR and visible lasers kick ass in the dark.
And night vision is perfectly legal. Not necessarily cheap, especially for the quality ones, but perfectly legal, even practical.
For a "sporting" use: lots of livestock-destroying predators like to come out at night. an IR laser and NV optic would make eliminating them a lot easier.
I would love NV for shooting raccoons at night.
so 4-5k in optics and nv for a 700 dollar rifle to kill racoons, sounds reasonable
i would do it if i had the cash and need
I wanna get an AN/PVS14 but at 4k it makes me
4-5k would be cheap; NV alone would be that and the illumantor and laser is another 2k
