Universal Rifle Adapter
The adapter is CNC machined from a billet of 7000 series aluminium and hard anodised in in a matt black finish.
Its design provides the strength & support for the rifle & bipod in use, and to allow for rapid attachment of the bipod without tools or catches.
It also allows the bipod to traverse 30 degrees left & right of centre, and also permits the bipod to be fitted in the reverse position, to fix the traverse facility, making it ideal for range focused shooting.
As standard all Spartan bipods are sent out with a ‘Universal Rifle Adapter’ in the box with a bipod.
The ‘Universal Rifle Adapter’ is designed to be a simple surface mounted fitting that enables fitment of the following products.
- Javelin Bipod
- 300 Bipod
- Sentinel Tripod
- Spartan Sucker Mount
It is designed to replace the existing ‘sling swivel stud’ that is commonly found fitted to many rifles as standard.
To to achieve a satisfactory fitting between the rifle stock and the ‘Universal Rifle Adapter’, we also supply 3 x synthetic interface plates. These are pre-shaped with different profiles to match a broad range of rifles stocks, from flat to very curved.
All of the bipods go out complete with three screws, ‘Allen’ key for tightening the screws into the rifle stock.
The screws are manufactured from ferritic stainless steel, to be both corrosion resistant, but offer the the magnetic attraction for the fitting of the bipod to the adapter.
The screws are as following dimensions:
- 10/32 x 3/4 U.S (this is the black coloured screw within the box.)
- 5 x 20 mm Metric
- 12g x 3/4 Wood screw
The black coloured U.S 10/32 screw thread pitch appears visually very similar to the metric screw pitch, but they are directly interchangeable.
For rifles that don't have existing ‘sling swivel stud’ fittings, it may be necessary to install a suitable insert into the stock
The rifle sling can then re-attached into the mounting point that is machined into the adapter.
Below is a link to to the typical fitting process of a ‘Universal Rifle Adapter’ to a rifle stock:
(All adapters described as ‘Universal’ are suitable for fitting the full range of Spartan bipods & tripods.
(All adapters described as ‘Classic’ are suitable for fitting of the Spartan ‘Javelin’ & ‘Sentinel’ & ‘Spartan ‘Sucker Mount’, NOT the Spartan ‘300’ bipod)
