Universal Guide 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.
The 'Universal Guide Adapter' has really been designed for the professional hunting community in mind.
The feedback that we had from professionals in this sector them was that they like the Javelin bipod, and especially the 'Kapita' & 'Sentinel' tripods, due to the support & stability it can offer clients with important or challenging shots.
What they were less keen. on was having to temporarily adapt a visiting clients rifle to allow the use of these products.
They wanted an adapter that could be simply added to the clients rifle for the duration of the hunt, and then remove once they were finished.
The ‘Universal Guide 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 fit over the existing ‘sling swivel studs’ that are commonly found fitted to many rifles as standard.
The ‘Universal Guide Adapter' achieves this by pinning the 'Over Screw '(2)to the existing sling swivel stud of the rifle using the 4mm stainless steel pin. (3)
To to achieve a satisfactory fitting between the rifle stock and the ‘Universal Guide Adapter’, we also supply 3 x synthetic interface plates (1). These are pre-shaped with different profiles to match a broad range of rifles stocks, from flat to very curved.
The Over Screw now (2) becomes the anchor point for fitting the main adapter body (4), which in turn is secured to the 'Over Screw’ (2), by a large nut (5). The rifle sling can then re-attached onto the mounting point of the adapter.
The design of the ‘Universal Guide Adapter’ allows it to be mounted with the socket for the bipod facing with towards or away from the muzzle for greater flexibility.
The ‘Universal Guide Adapter’ was not intended for the owner of a rifle looking for a permanent fitting. Its design will require more attention to ensure that it is firmly fitted, to the rifle. The design also necessitates that it is larger then the other adapter options, which may be an issue for some users, where other adapter options may be a more suitable choice.
