ParaScope Urban Combat Sight Allows To Aim and Fire Around Corners

Illustration for article titled ParaScope Urban Combat Sight Allows To Aim and Fire Around Corners

The ParaScope Urban Combat Sight is a specialized device that acts like a periscope to allow aiming and firing around obstacles and corners, without having to put your life on the line or firing John McClane-style "Hail Mary" passes. It can be connected to any existing scope, "projecting the target image, with the targeting laser dot, back through it at any angle" and according to the Marines who have tried, it works great. In other words: peeping toms of the world, this thing is a must.[Defense Tech]

This is an old idea. At the end of WWII the German Krummer Lauf gun had a barrel bent through 90 degrees and a periscope to allow soldiers to shoot around corners. Of course they were in trouble if someone was running directly towards them!
