Thumbkey strap DSCA's now available

Post by some bloke » 17 Oct 2017, 15:02

My new thumbkey rifle scope camera adaptors are now available.

They are designed for 30mm square metal cased E700 camera's that are available in the UK from SURE24 or the slightly different E 700 12v model from Ian Sirrel.

EDIT: Price remains at £40 + £8 RMSD P&P.

They can be deliberately left a bit loose if anyone wants their crosshair to shift on screen from time to time. :D

I can custom make a collar to partially fit round the illuminated retical module of MTC Mamba's at £5 if ordered at the same time.

No mate - not only was the original bloke seriously unreliable but the bulky screwcap fouls some centrefire bolt retraction if the scope is on low or medium rings. The new method with its very thin plated steel strap allows me to increase the clamping diameter by 1mm - yet decrease the overall diameter as a bonus... and it clamps even tighter as you see in the video.

The new chap wanted just over £70 each to make the screwcap one's! :crazy:

Ha! The old guy put in some more effort and got the batch done once he'd seen I'll go elsewhere. :roll:

I can therefore keep them at the old price of £48 posted RMSD and will take the hit from the new guy - and keep them as an expensive reserve back up overhead.

For anyone thinking the main tube might be made out of tube - this shows they are bored from solid bar in a CNC lathe. The total time of 18 minutes machine time has been edited to reduce the video size.

They look great!
Will definitely order one, if they are still available.
Would you PM me your details so we can make this happen?
Thanks in advance,
Picker.

I've had a few people ask me if the Floplast fitting is glued into the main tube: It is not. :angel:

The main tube I'D is machined to make the Floplast end fitting (which carries the E700 camera) a nice tight fit so it allows for extending the eye relief if needed by up to 22mm for longer than usual eye relief scopes. There is also a few millimeters of latitude about how far the adaptor is slid onto the eyebell before clamping the adaptor tight.
