Okay, the weather down here has been absolutely diabolical,strong winds, wild rain storms and a decent wind chill factor.
Funny I was relegated to the shed this arvo. Took me about 3/4 of an hour to make the backing plate and the small section which sits on the scope. made it from 6mm x 100mm flat ali plate. Could not find a small string spirit level, so used a mammoth spirit level instead.
Would you believe the thing actually works !!
If you are at all handy, I think two pieces of 1" x 1/2" with a piece welded (or bolted ) across the top and bottom holding them together but with a slot gap for the bolt to run would also work. All you would have to do is to place the two 1"x 1/2"pieces back to back and cut them at an angle to get the 'v' to fit the barrel.
But then again, if the device is only a few bob, why worry. As for me, I have never seen anything like that in my life, and the real satisfaction in all of this is making something like this and then having it work right through to the final outcome which is being able to confidently hit the target -if you're good enough !
Not good to be so enthusiastic though, I am in the early stages of buying a 12 - 42 x 56 night force scope with Mildot reticle. Not the NXS as they are way beyond my reach, and besides, I don't think I can honestly shoot well enough to be able to justify one of those.
cost over here!)
Great outcome once again,
