I know nothing, yet looking at the picture you post my impression is that it belongs on a precision air rifle. The rings seem too cheesy to put on a center fire in normal use.

I've never seen it. Schweitzer has that odd dual view riflescope, but I have never seen any of their products outside SHOT.

From a technology standpoint, it is a very interesting design. They are using a catadioptric objective which would normally be deemed too fragile for use in riflescopes. If it holds up durability wise, that opens up a lot of interesting opportunities for future high magnification riflescope design.

Hi,

Yea I have no clue of them either, I just ran across the company while reviewing/researching some patent information.
I have sent them an email but no reply.

Sincerely,

From what I can tell the 3.5 model is for air rifles.
Dollars to doughnuts it won’t last on a 300 win mag.

What koshkin said about the fragile design, might be fragile for center fire but the reverse springer shock might be right up the design ally ??
