The following information provides an overview of the different adapters and their applications and suitability for your intended use.
Universal Rifle Adapter
The Universal Rifle Adapter is supplied in the box with the bipod as the standard fitting option for our bipods and tripods to the stocks of most classic hunting rifle stock designs.
It is designed to replace existing the QD Sling Swivel Stud that is screwed into the rifle stock and comes with the choice of US, Metric and Wood screws as well as three differently profiled synthetic mounting plates to fit the adapter to the rifle stock
The sling swivel can be reattached to the mounting point located to the rear of the adapter. (*)
(*Where the QD Sling Swivel is located on the underside of the rifle stock)
For rifle stocks with a very flat profile, we recommend the application of a small spot of non-permanent silicon sealant between the rear portion of the adapter mounting plate & the rifle stock, to mitigate the chance of the adapter being rotated around the stock when held on the sling.
Classic Gunsmith Adapter / Blaser Gunsmith Adapter
These two adapters are designed to be embedded into the rifle stock and permanently bonded in place.
The Gunsmith Adapter exists in two designs and is designed to be located within the rifle stock of classic hunting rifle stocks, of a variety of materials. The design allows the majority of the adapter to be positioned below the surface of the rifle stock, creating a very strong, functional but elegant fitting within the stock.
It can be installed in a way that leaves a very low profile on the rifle stock until the bipod is fitted. This design leaves very little to press into the user's shoulder when carried on the rifle sling.
With this each of these adapters, it will be necessary to retain the existing sling swivel stud for use as a sling attachment point.
We find that many customers come back a adopt this option after they have owned and used the bipod or tripod for a period of time and developed confidence & trust in the system.
The differences between the different Gunsmith Adapters are outlined below:
- Classic Gunsmith Adapter - Designed to function with Javelin bipod only & Sentinel & Davros. The Brass version this adapter is exactly the same design but produced in a brass alloy. Sized to accept the 12mm spigot heads of the Spartan products.
- Blaser Carbon Bipod Classic Gunsmith Adapter - Designed to function with the branded Blaser bipod only, with their 12.5mm bipod fittings.
Universal Picatinny Adapter
The adapter is designed to work with any rifle fitted with a suitably placed Mil-Std 1913 rail. It clamps to the rail using a T30 Torx head screw.
Universal M-Lok Adapter
The adapter is designed to work with any rifle fitted with a Mag-Pul spec M-Lok rail design. It attaches to the rail using a two T-Nut fixing and feature four-axis recoil mitigation lugs.
Universal Key-Mod Adapter
The adapter is designed to work with any rifle fitted with any Key-Mod rail designs. It attaches to the rail using a two cone nut fixing and features recoil mitigation lugs.
Universal Anshutz / UIT Adapter
The adapter is designed to work with the T-Slot type track of Anshutz / UIT design. It offers a direct attachment to the rail track of the rifle.
The dimensions are based on the original international UIT specifications set out below.
In our experience, there is sometimes some variation in these dimensions between suppliers. For fitting into some aftermarket UIT rails, it may be necessary to slightly reduce the height of the two adapter mounting plates (D) that fit into the internal track by 2mm / 0.07" achieve a successful fitting. This can be achieved by carefully filing the plates to reduce their overall height.
A. Internal width of opening = 10mm /0.4"
B. Internal width at bottom = 13mm / 0.5"
C. Total internal height = 4mm / 0.16"
D. Internal Track Height = 2mm / 0.07"
