If some of you will recall this thread....Corner sight

I was trying to get with the company to see if they had anymore. We are moving forward, interestingly enough they were made in San Diego Ca., and they are proto-types from what I can glean from the commo with these guys. I'll keep you guys advised.

Got this from my contact.....

We delivered 1000 to the 101st AB in late Feb of 02???? the week before they began rotation into Kuwait readying to go over the line (on Mar 19th) for the first days of the war. I was at Ft Campbell that week training a 101st squad with the ICRO and also with a helmet mounted ************ that we had fast burn produced for them. I heard a rumor that their supply system never distributed the ICRO to the units, so it never made it into theater. Don't know for sure. But what you say backs that up. Attached a couple of pics of the squad at Campbell using the **************, getting ready for a MOUT exercise to simulate close quarters combat that was expected in the seige of Baghdad.


Sorry, I couldn't put all the info out. Just pay attention to the ICRO information.

Oh and it looks like this won't happen, the wholesale cost on these units is too high for MSRP. Sorry.
