What the Hell is This??!!

I got this today at a gunshow...... It says Weaver Qwik-Point... It looks like a old red dot? Anybody know anything about it?

Nice little sights. Like a red dot, but gathered ambient light rather than used batteries.

Weaver made them for many years with varying popularity. Promoted usage was for shotguns, rifles and rimfires.

Thanks... It seems I got a Shotgun model? It has a weird mount, its in between a top and side mount, i guess a diagonal mount? :confused:
Any hoo, I was thinking of getting another receiver cover for my SKS to drill and tap and putting it on my SKS... Do you guys think it would work for that? It would make a handy SHTF red dot, using no batterys.....

that is an early design of what we now know as trijicon fiber dot sights. sweet looking. i would not put it on anything more than a 22.

Trez, that's funny! That thing is so old you were probably still in diapers when it was new. Kind'a the first run at fiber optic and red dot type sights that they made. I don't think they worked all that well.

Why? It was made for a shotgun... I wouldnt think the itty bitty 7.62x39 would hurt it?

The ones with shotgun mounts dont seem to cost as much as the ones that have a normal Weaver/ dovetail mount... A sks is the only thing besides a shotgun that looks like it would fit...... Ive never seen a mount attach at a diagonal like that...

since we are on "wtf is this" how about this first optic. It looks like an eotech mounted on top of it, but what is that some kind of thermal scope?
