Just when you thought you’d seen everything…
Canadian manufacturer MagWedge has developed a new product they’re calling the AngelEye. It’s a small mirror that mounts onto a section of picatinny rail. The mirror folds closed against the rifle when stowed, and when deployed can be flexed to accommodate different angles.
The concept, according to MagWedge:
The AngelEye increases your situational awareness by giving you a convenient way to see what is going on behind you and to your side.
So this is less of a “peak around corners” tool and more of a “see what’s over my shoulder” tool. It’s unclear right now just how wide the field of view is through the mirror, but I expect more stats are forthcoming.
MSRP is aiming for just under $100 CAD, and it looks like they’re shipping now.
I am intensely curious to hear from the readers on this one: is it something you’d personally use? At first glance it seems like a product that falls into the “tacticool to the point of silliness” category, but perhaps I’m overlooking a real world application that falls outside my realm of shooting.
