Hi everyone my google fu is failing me and the answer to this query will probably be embarrassing for me (or just "use the search function) but I have and I have googled it and my googling has only resulted in fictional sights thanks to Call of Duty and their magical hybrid sight.

Anyways, a few years back I remember reading about a new experimental sight that was angled (like some spotter scopes) that using a throw switch could switch from a holographic sight (True holo not rds) to a variable scope that was illuminated.  It was a few thousand dollars and really heavy and ugly.  It looked like a big grey rubber tube more than a scope.

Its just all this worshiping the elcan specterdr reminded me of this scope I read about 2 years ago and I just can not seem to find any mention of it anywhere.  It might have a name that is a snake (cobra, python, what have you) but I might just be making it up.  Please help me

Smoking  Uh Hu.
 
There is a lot of stuff that comes up then seems to disappear;  the military does have some very cool optics - electronic digital etc systems that we dont have access to.  Thats Ok they are the only ones that can afford that crap.   Live Leak would be the place to look for it.

Thanks for the response but I am hoping someone remembers what specifically im talking about as it was fairly anticipated.  It was ready for consumer release and I remember they had an msrp and spokespersons on various forums, interviews, gun show presence, etc.  I feel like they were already talking about a second generation.  I'm sure someone out there must have seen it.  It was a very thick grey rubber coated tube that lay flush on the mount and then angled up and had a purplish eyepiece with a huge FOV.  Imagine an eotech combined with a telescope (the prism kind that are angled for astronomy) and it had a few switch view levers.

my man, you are the man.  So does anyone actually have an opinion on these that have used them?  Not many reviews out there which makes me think the few owners out there are too embarrassed they shelled out that much money for an unsuccessful product.  It seems all the new solutions trying to fit this "role"  (really all roles) are so radically different because there isnt an answer yet.  THe traditional solutions are valdada bitbull and the like, true 1x that goes up and you just have to get good at that cheek weld.  Or eotech+magnifier but that doesnt count in my book.  The elcan specterdr looks to be the best bet right now and has amazing glass.  People are complaining about the weight but this kruger is even bigger and bulkier.  It has the advantage of 2x-8x though and a larger fov.  Looks to be a true holo.   Thoughts anyone?  THank you billburl2 this was driving me crazy
