IC2 Co-Witness Mount

IC2

If you are teaching a youngster how to hunt, take a look at the IC2 Co-Witness.  The IC2 is an optics mounting rail designed to let a second person see what is being targeted by the shooter.

The base of the mount attaches to an existing optic with a scope ring.  A second optic can then be mounted on Picatinny rail that is at the opposite end of the mount.

    I think this is a great idea.

    And it’s offset just like training wheels. I love it!

    The problem I see is that both sights would be co-witnessed at one range, and potentially be way off from each other at other ranges.

      what was going to say. even a single scope being offset from the bore causes differents from PoA and PoI. taking the second scope out another 12 inches will cause that angle to be even more severe.

      i can’t MS paint in here… :-(

    you would always have to shoot at the same distance but still cool idea for range officers or something

    I believe most of you are missing the point. The secondary sight is for observing the general target area, not precise aiming. Now if we can find a tool to teach kids not to hoard ammo, we can all go shoot.

    This is a great tool! As the video states the IC2 can be zeroed to the rifle scope for a set distance. Although adjustments in the field could prove tricky (adjusting scope and IC2 with limited time) if both were zeroed at 100 yards the shooter and mentor would have a pretty good ability to get on target at ranges from 25-200 yards.

    Using the trajectory of the bullet provided by the manufacturer (or by practice) the mentor can instruct the shooter to raise or lower the cross hair accordingly for ranges closer or further than 100 yards. Going out to 200 yards usually only causes a 4-6″ drop for most hunting cartridges, which could easily be accounted for by the mentor.

    This technique won’t be perfect, but plenty of hunters with a 100 yard zero have made shots of various distances in the same way.
