The 'Universal Anschutz / UIT Adapter' has been designed as a semi-permanent fit to the rail of the rifle. This adapter has been produced, specifically to enable direct attachment of the Spartan products using the standard 'Anshutz / UIT' accessory rail on any suitably equipped rifle.
It is CNC machined from a billet of 7000 series aluminium and hard anodised, corrosion-resistant matt black finish.
The UIT rail, also known as Anschutz rail, is a standard used for mounting slings and other gun accessories in competition shooting, but is sometimes found on hunting & tactical rifles. It is essentially a T-slot track shaped aluminium extrusion profile accepting attachments in the form of T-slot nuts, or similar.
The 'Universal Anschutz / UIT Adapter' shares the common 12mm socket fitting from the family of adapters, enabling instant attachment & detachment of the magnetic spigot fitting found in our bipods & tripods.
In terms of functionality the 'Universal Anschutz / UIT Adapter' is capable of being used with the following Spartan products.
- Javelin bipod
- Javelin Lite bipod
- Javelin Pro-Hunt bipod
- '300' bipod
- Sentinel rifle & optics support system
- Davros head
It is worth noting our adapter is connected to the rail by 2 x 'T' shaped nuts. These nuts have a shoulder that fits into the track of the rail and allows the adapter to slide into position before being tightened in the final position.
We machine the shoulder of these nuts to a thickness of 2mm, which is the original 'UIT' standard.
We have noticed that different rifle & accessory manufacturers will use different dimensions for this rail, which might require the thickness of the nuts to be reduced by 1-2mm, to enable the nuts to slide within the tracks. This can be easily achieved by the use of a small file or abrasive wheel.
The 'Universal Anschutz / UIT Adapter' also allows the bipod to traverse degrees left & right of centre and also permits the '300' bipod to be folded up and locked under the rifle during carriage.
