KDG Recognizes the Seeming Absolute Co-Witness Community with new SIDELOK

    Kinetic Development Group, still at it with their excellent SIDELOK series has seen fit to recognize what seems to be the minority of the AR-15 shooting community. With almost all manufacturers offering lower 1/3 optics mounts, those of us steeped in the classic cheek weld versus the morally and physically inferior chin weld now have a Q/D option for the excellent Aimpoint Micro series of optics and its constituent clones.

    I mean, who, in their right mind, would seem to remove contact points from a weapon system? What deranged soul thinks that the small perceived benefits of permanently deployed iron sights taking up a smidge of their vision is a good trade for a poor head position. This is not to mention the profoundly misguided folks who use lower 1/3 without permanently deployed irons. The horror!

    (For those who missed the humor in this article, I pity you).

    Fortunately, Kinetic has seen the light and applied their novel SIDELOK system to true believers. As with its wrong higher cousin, the SIDELOK system is truly quick detach and by using powerful springs, keeps zero and the optic held on tight.

    For those looking for a Q/D solution, the SIDELOK Aimpoint Micro Mount – Abosolute Co-Witness is available directly from KDG and through their dealers. MSRP is listed at $139.
