iPod Touch mounted on M110 Sniper Rifle

    We have seen some cool iPhone applications come out for shooting sports. But nothing comes close to the sheer awesomeness of the Knights Armaments M110 iPod Touch mount and accompanying ballistics software.

    The M110 is the 7.62x51mm semi-automatic sniper system which won the Army’s competition to replace the aging M24 bolt action sniper system. While it will not replace the M24 in the near future, the system is seeing action in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The rifle is based on the SR-25, which in turn is based on the Stoners’ AR-10 design.

    Knights Armaments have developed a mounting system for the iPod Touch that attaches to a side mounted picatinny rail. The mount attaches to an Otterbox protective case.

    KAC contracted Runaway technologies to build an external ballistics calculator for the iPod Touch / iPhone named Bullet Flight. It is your standard ballistics application. You can set firearm / ammunition profiles, then call up the saved profile and enter your environment information, for example, distance, wind direction, elevation and temperature.

    The application is available from the iTunes store for $11.99. It is a lot more expensive than the $4.99 iSnipe application.

    We may yet see an iPhone on the battlefield 🙂
