Trying to put a bullet in a potato eyeball through a scope with a .308 at 50 yards:

The Carlos Hathcock legend:

One of Hathcock’s most famous accomplishments was shooting an enemy sniper through the enemy’s own rifle scope, hitting him in the eye and killing him. Hathcock and John Roland Burke, his spotter, were stalking the enemy sniper in the jungle near Hill 55, the firebase from which Hathcock was operating. The sniper, known only as the ‘Cobra,’ had already killed several Marines and was believed to have been sent specifically to kill Hathcock. When Hathcock saw a flash of light (light reflecting off the enemy sniper’s scope) in the bushes, he fired at it, shooting through the scope and killing the sniper. Surveying the situation, Hathcock concluded that the only feasible way he could have put the bullet straight down the enemy’s scope and through his eye would have been if both snipers were zeroing in on each other at the same time and Hathcock fired first, which gave him only a few seconds to act. Given the flight time of rounds at long ranges, the snipers could have simultaneously killed one another. Hathcock took possession of the dead sniper’s rifle, hoping to bring it home as a “trophy” but, after he turned it in and tagged it, it was stolen from the armory. (Source)

BOOM… HEADSHOT.  Nice work guys.

Highjak86hahah that scope was a mess.  I suggested they tape it to the end of their rifle barrel, using it as a half loudener.

Thoughts?

Really guys… Really?  Might as well go full retard, extend the barrel, add a shoulder thing that goes up, chrome it, and sneak a low profile knife onto that top picatinny rail.

Seen on the cover of American Handgunner magazine last year too (shown left).  Must not be selling too well because they are trying to push it through email.  Big surprise.

Ultimate combo is right…

Ha.. not bulky at all either! *sarcasm*

You just know all the high speed low drag operators worldwide have this exact $350 setup.

Just in case you thought I photoshopped it… the Barska site – HERE

  • The range depends on a persons arm length.
  • The red dot sight is for close target aquisiton for stabbing
  • The scope with magnification is for acquiring distant targets you plan on throwing the knife at

Maybe it’s just me.. but I feel that the way the optics are mounted would totally mess up blade harmonics.

This setup is just crying for a free floated vertical foregrip.

After hearing all these rumors about how awesome the PA MD-0x series optics are I HAD to give it a run around the block. Of course, by “run around the block” I mean to subject it to environments that any commercial optic might run into. It’s not a series of unrelated, outlandish tests AT ALL.
