Does anyone know of a retailer who is carrying the Off-Axis View Device (OAVD) or similar?  It's apparently a modern take-off on the old periscope riflescope in the form of an eyepeice/mini-scope that fits in front of an Aimpoint-type scope and is currently in use by the Australian Army in Iraq: article&sid=737


It was developed by Australia's Defence Science and Technology Organization and is manufactured by BAE Systems Australia.


Any leads would be appreciated!

That would make for a very awkward shooting position. Could loose perspective easily I think....... looking in one direction and trying to shoot in another. Unless the device is removed fast and easy. Would think it would limit the shooter to just shooting around corners or over a wall. I sure wouldn't try and engage someone shooting with this monstrosity while someone is shooting at me with a traditional scope. I would spend more time fiddling with the weird angle when they can just point and shoot.
