Default unknown sight for small arm or grenade launcher?

Got this interesting Little aiming device, whereby I do not know what it is ;-)

Seems to be an attachment to a rifle or similar. No markings found, only the numbers for distance I guess.

I think it might be WW1, and austrian origin or similar. Maybe for a grenade launcher, but I did not find anything on the net.

Any help appreciated!

Looks very similar? If so, then an Austrian M95 grenade launcher sight from WW1 as you thought.
