    Confused by the rig: What is that on the receiver rail, between the rear sight and the optic?

  2. That is the AIMPOINT Twist Mount base for the Aimpoint 3X Magnifer with Twist Mount. Interesting side note Hakan Spuhr of Spuhr Mounts designed the Aimpoint Twist Mount.

    I remember watching Freddie doing an Aimpoint demo years ago on the Shooting Gallery. I was impressed, and have bought 4 Aimpoints since that all work great!
