    Interesting concept. The website videos weren’t working for me, but does it really take up nearly the entire top rail? That’s alot of real estate to be bumping BUIS, switches, laser, etc.

    • James says:

      Video explains that they are working on an electronic version to fix that. You’ll gain your top rail space back for clip-ons , switches, etc.

        Thanks for that!

        Thanks for sharing, definitely an inventive concept. Even with the wire run version, I would think the gear for the cam would help shorten the overall length of the unit, would just make it more “sensitive” for zoom, but just like scrolling something you could get used too.

    Agreed with above. Cool concept for sure, but it does seem to eat up a bunch of real estate on the top of the rifle. Still, I’d like to get some hands on time with it.

    Absolutely Brilliant!!

    That is pretty inventive. I do agree with losing a lot of rail space though. Even in a LE role, my duty carbine has minimal room with only a lpvo, buis and a CD tape switch mount for light. If they could come up with a way to shrink the footprint just a bit. It is an ingenious idea though. Hopefully there is some room for tweaking it a bit…?

    I wonder what Chief Plumb thinks of this?

  6. Joshz says:

    They are on the right track, but it needs to be a button press switch. Like with lights.

    Concept of “hands free” activation is sound. Execution, no-go. Electronic will be better but how do you stay in business after every scope company starts providing Bluetooth switch compatibility?

    • AbnMedOps says:

      I think in the very near future (or maybe already in Ukraine?) a Bluetooth emission is going to be a beacon to a drone or other signal collector to bring some very personalized fire on your head.

        I’m still trying to figure out what he wants to use the Bluetooth for.

    I like this a lot.

    As with anything else it has its limitations and will require rethinking how one mounts enablers. It’s not a plug-and-play solution. But I think for some people it can work really well for them.

    Judging from the videos and install information, as nice as a shorter more compact slider would be, I think it’s currently length gives you more control on dialing in the exact amount of magnification you need. Not to say that I wouldn’t want to see a more compact version developed, just that it’s probably a more involved process than meets the eye.

    Similar situation with an electronic based solution. Would be cool and I would love to see them do it but I also like having the option of having a system that uses no batteries and is purely mechanical.

    This will make loads of cash in the consumer hunting/3 Gun market. Probably has some LEO use as well. Excellent innovation. I’m here for it.
