Here is my new KwikFit Add-On NV rig. WARNING: If a low cost build with some delicate bits fitted around a rifle appeals to you, nothing wrong with your choice - but click away now because this rugged higher parts investment twin module rig is probably not for you..
How quick was that to add a complete ready to use NV that includes the illuminator fitted and reliably aimed straight ahead?
Its stand apart feature is a very solidly mounted and well aimed integrated T50 Black Sun illuminator that by default will point virtually dead ahead. However, just as scopes need zeroing, the supplied IR torch weaver mount MIGHT need to be fine tuned with shims to aim the torch exactly just above centre screen of the 5" 800x480 monitor - which has a brightness control, for your specific rifle. Once the zero has been set, future use is repeatable and doesn't have the torch flop down or sideways every time you move the rifle.
The rig takes 3 FLAT TOP 18650 batteries - not supplied. If something happens to any of them its very easy to change without losing use of the rig for a few days while a pack would be repaired - and I don't get sued if one goes bang. I use 'free' cells from recovered laptop battery packs. They are easily fitted and changed in seconds without any tools as seen in this video:
The 'base' of the battery/monitor box is laminated with a second layer of ABS sheet solvent welded inside it before the torch body is clamped through it to make for a seriously sturdy module fixing that's not going to flop around or snap any mounting legs if the rifle rig is rested on it - or even picked up by it.
The KPC E700 camera is located in the rear part of my unique and original design 4 jaw Collet Chuck DSA which comes with a collet. It will fit scope eye bell diameters from a maximum 45mm down to a minimum diameter of 41MM. Once set up to suit a specific eye bell it only needs about half a turn of the screw cap to lock in place, and the clamping forces of collet chucks are phenomenal. Point to note - if used with a centrefire rifle medium or high mounts are likely to be necessary to avoid the bolt lever fouling the screw cap of the DSA. See the last photo.
Prior to applying final clamping pressure with the screw cap, Turn on the optical part of the rig (the lower switch) and push the Collet Chuck hard against the ocular adjust wheel and twist to adjust the retical while watching it real time on the monitor like this:
A single trailing cable passes between the two modules with in line slip together connectors. If the cable gets snagged the connectors 'go with' the snag and separate rather than break a plug and ruin your nights shooting at best - or need returning for repair at worst resulting in several days loss of use. I have deliberately made it long enough to fit longer scopes and the slack can be taken up by wrapping it once around the scope so it doesn't cause any hindrance.
More details may be added later. Any item I produce is sold with three months warranty against failure and I prefer people to buy on a sales thread rather than via PM so the date and spec is there for us both to refer back too.
