A new weapon sight soon could make its way to the U.S. armed forces, and a Department of Defense representative’s reaction to the technology means it could be a game-changer for troops.
The official was introduced to the sight during SHOT Show, a firearms convention in January that lured industry innovators, enthusiasts and government officials from around the world.
The convention, held in Las Vegas, reportedly is where the DOD representative first met with Matbock, the Virginia Beach company behind the design.
According to The Virginian-Pilot, Matbock founders Sean Matson and Zach Steinbock were working at the convention when they met a program manager from the Department of Defense’s Unified Combatant Command.
The two founders, both former Navy SEALs, had a unique weapon sight that had been in development for years.
