Built A Tripod Prototype

Just the upper part actually. Should I ignore the vertical adjustment? The tripod part is from a telescope,I didnīt mess it up at all so it can still be used.

This is lightweight but I can stand on it... 190 pounds. [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

All scrap stuff found at my home... will work one day. Ideas,please?





A close look:

Re: Built A Tripod Prototype

I can see where the parts for the tripod came from but what parts/stuff did you use to build the dog?

Only difficulty I see is where the butt stock rides the rear rest... think this will cause some vertical shifting?

Thanks for the reply,Dave.

Suggestions for the rear rest? Contour it to match the stock? Change the place?

Oh,the dog parts came from other dogs. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

I wouldn't change it yet, just be consistent in where you place the stock and how much pressure you apply to the buttstock while shooting.
