New from IC2: Co-Witness Sight Mount

Tandem parachuting. Never did it. I jumped all by my lonesome—and paid the price. (Me: “I don’t think that’s the way my foot’s supposed to be facing.” Jump guy: “I think you sprained it.”) Tandem target shooting. Wanna try it. At the very least IC2’s $50 Co-Witness sight mount will help instructors identify shooters of a certain age whose sight picture doesn’t exactly correspond with reality. Ralph? You wanna share with the group? Not sure the a IC2 Co-Witness Mount mounted sight would be much use during back country elk hunting; it looks a tad cumbersome for that app. But what do I know? The last time I took down an elk I nearly pulled down the wall to which the head was attached. [press release via ammoland.com after the jump] . . .

Shooters, hunters and firearms instructors can now significantly increase the chances of greater success when hunting, and shorten the learning curve for first time shooters with the new IC2 Co-Witness that allows another person to co-witness the shot.

The IC2 Co-Witness is a picatinny-railed sight mount that allows for the attachment of a non-magnified sight, which is placed in a position offset from one side of any attached optic.

The IC2 will allow an observer the chance to see the same sight picture as the shooter. The IC2 is easy to install and use, and accommodates other devices equipped with a Weaver-style base, such as camera mounts, flashlights and lasers.

The IC2 is constructed of solid, one-piece machined aluminum, is made entirely in the USA and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

    Sure. Group, don’t get old. It’s bad for your accuracy.

    This assumes that you have the weapon sited to the exact right distance all the time. More useful would be a mirror in the scope that shows exactly what the shooter sees no matter the distance. Better yet, an electronic view like telescopes use.

    The Accutact Anglesight that MAC reviewed may be more expensive, but it is way more practical and doesn’t require near as much setup as this.

      How much more expensive the angle sight is depends on what kind of red dot you put on this mount.

    I have an Army-issue gizmo for my Garand, which clips on to the rear sight and, employing an angled mirror, lets the coach or instructor check the shooter’s sight picture.

    In a time when the US Army thought marksmanship was a fundamental skill they used a non-digital device to accomplish said coaching activity w/ the 1903 Sprungfield. The same can be accomplished with many of the current laser devices Sans or Mit ammo

    One word: Parallax.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallax

    There’s always some parallax, since the scope doesn’t mount exactly in line with the bore – but that mount looks like it induces a ton of offset.

    JT’s gizmo sounds better.

    This is ridiculous. A proper sight picture is not a difficult concept to explain. If someone can’t tell if they are lining two shapes up correctly they have a serious issue.

    Robert,

    Google Glass. There, I fixed it for you….
