I have now trimmed the inside of the hose and made it more flexible with the hot water trick you mentioned so hopefully it should now work. :thumbup:

Can you buy a DSA that fits multiple sized scopes and the KPC-E700PUB-16B Board Camera?

Reason being is the silicon hose I just manage to fit on one scope wont fit the other scopes I use and don't really want to keep having to take the camera out and rebuilding the DSA each time when changing between guns.

I did wonder about that but would it be able to attach the KPC-E700PUB-16B Board Camera?

Yes i have fitted mine into a small project box with a ring fitted to the front that slips into the dsa but i'm fairly sure an E700 should fit into it ok

Thanks. I'll give it a try if I keep getting problems with the hose.
