Well my mistake then. It's hard to see the red dot in the movie and kinda hard to see it in the poster since it blends into the scope. I've never seen a red dot mounted sideways on a scope before. Usually for a long range scope, a doctor red dot is on top or an offset angle from the rail. That could explain why Flag holds his rifle almost completely sideways as opposed to tilt.

I believe that this mount is the one made by LaRue. They recommend fitting it at 45º between the turrets, but as it just clamps around the scope tube rather than being fixed to one of the rings like other mounts, it can be adjusted to any position around the scope.

The new Resident Evil CGI movie just dropped a trailer and unlike RE6, it looks like they animated actual real looking guns.

So if Deckard is alive, he's NOT a replicant?

Ugh, Leon again? He's really starting to become the Roman Reigns of Resident Evil. It's hilarious how Rebecca is still wearing her STARS uniform, though. And apparently hasn't aged a bit in the past 18 years.

They brought Rebecca Chambers back just so she can't get kidnapped...and well, the white dress saids it all. It made me roll my eyes.

At least unlike RE6, the guys they are using looks like real guns.

So after watching Forgotten Weapon's video on the Crossfire Mk.1 shotgun-over-rifle I googled it.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5NK0M6HE3Y

Apparently The Specialists movie armory actually has one.


Why would they have one and do you think we'll ever see one in a movie?
