A very long time ago I had on on a 22 semi auto rifle. It really worked quite well but sure looked funny. They were light dependent so they did not work at night.

I cant seem to find any bad reviews for it... Many people who got them when they came out said they still use them.... Not a sniper optic by any means, but I read it works very well at short and mid ranges.... It is light dependent, but seems to work well until its almost dark out. Confirmed I have the S-1 shotgun model and it will only fit guns with round receivers. They made the S-1 (shotgun), R-1 (centerfire rifles), R-22 (rimfires) It wont fit any of my .22's and I dont want to mount it to any of my shotguns.

They dont seem to be worth much (about $10-$20, $30-$40 NIB) and considering I got it for free (I watched a guys stuff at the gun show, and helped him load up after the show was over, so he gave it to me) I might as well use it on something...
Now that I have rifles like my Mosin, that can actually shoot long distances, I think im gonna take my Posp scope off, put this on, and turn my SKS back into a quick little mid range carbine...

Found this too...

Heres how it looks on the SKS... (its just put on with double sided tape)
Its a little funny looking, but I think it would work.....

I would consider a "brass" deflector, though; i'm not sure how tough that plastic is.

Digital thermal weapons system.
You can buy a civilian model similar to this for 26 grand.
I've only seen one and it was at a gun store in Fort Campbell, Ky.

That France's version of Land Warrior, it's called FELIN. That big ol' thing is a camera/NV sight/telescopic sight/magic robot eye. I guess he has the EOTech for point shooting and because it looks tacticool.

Speaking of, does anyone know the Land Warrior and Future Force Warrior programs going? Last I heard, LW got deployed in Iraq with a Stryker battalion, then got canceled despite glowing reviews. I have no clue how the other's going.

If it's French does the surrender flag pop out of the top or the side?

Quick Point. Nice little item. First time I saw one it was mounted on a remington 870. That was way back in 1975. First year I went deer hunting w/my father. No magnification but it did offer a clear sight picture. I have been looking for one myself to mount onto my sons Mossberg 500.
