The Hidesight is a 1x red dot optic modifier that allows a shooter to view and engage targets from a position of cover. The Hidesight mounts behind the optic on the rifle and allows for shooting from a normal position, or with a 45° or 90° angle. A shooter can then expose the rifle without exposing much of his or her body for observation or shooting.
A normal image is maintained when using the Hidesight. In other words, the image is not flipped: right is still right, left is still left.
The unit is made of polymer, steel and aluminum. The company states the construction is rugged and will operate normally in a wide range of temperatures.
The Hidesight is made in Finland. MSRP is €145 (about $196 US), and the company offers worldwide shipping.
