The Spartan Davos is a tripod converter / mounting base for rifles, optics, cameras & other accessories. It is based upon the head unit of our successful ‘Sentinel’ - Rifle & Optics Support System.
It is machined from a billet of 7000 series aluminium and given a durable hard anodised finish to create a strong, light & corrosion-resistant unit.
It is intended to convert existing quality photographic & hunting tripod systems, for owners that are seeking to gain the advantages of the ‘Spartan’ magnetic attachment system for their rifles & optics and other accessories. It can also be integrated with other Spartan accessories to form a multi-functional mounting system.
The ‘Davros’ head is specifically designed to be a straight forward retrofit option to the existing 3/8 UNC threads found in commercially available tripod & support systems.
It simply screws on to the tripod, immediately converting them for use with the full range of ‘Spartan’ rifle & optics adapters.
The ‘Davros’ provides the full benefits of our instant magnetic attachment & stabilisation and provides the ability to instantly swap between rifle, optics & other devices.
Attachment to a rifle is achieved by fitting one of the of Spartan Rifle Adapters, which provide an instant attachment, together with the advantages of increased stability & control.
The design permits a large range of articulation from its friction adjustable ball joint, making it suitable for shooting and observing over uneven terrain.
The ‘Davros’ uses any of the standard 12mm Spartan rifle adapters, to make use of the direct magnetic attachment
- Anshutz / UIT
- Universal rifle adapter (conventional hunting rifle stocks)
- ‘Gunsmith’ (Universal or Classic) Adapter, which are embedded into rifle stocks. (1.)Additional adapters (Extra adapters are individually available an additional purchase.)
The Davros is also directly compatible with our range or optics adapters & accessories including:
- Optics Adapters - for direct attachment to devices using standard 1/4” female fittings to attach the adapter to the optic or accessory. These sizes are industry standards with the Camera & Optics industry.
The versatile Spartan optics adapters can also be simply fitted to other accessories, giving the Davros even greater versatility of use.
- Mr G Clamp'
When used with the 'Mr G Clamp' the Davros can solve a range of temporary mounting challenges when working around vehicles, buildings, shooting blinds & tree stands.
- Pro -Clamp
With slightly more functionality and a slightly quicker adjusting action than the 'Mr G Clamp,' the 'Pro-Clamp' is a cleverly engineered mounting solution for a variety of environments.
- Sucker Mount
The Davros threads directly onto the 3/8" UNC thread of the Spartan Sucker Mount, allowing it to be very quickly adapted for use on smooth surfaces, making it suitable for use on vehicle bodies. Its is also a convenient method to temporarily hold a rifle on a smooth countertop whilst carrying out rifle cleaning & maintenance.
- Pan Head Converter
This can be used with existing camera quality pan & tilt heads where greater sophistication & control is required from the support system when being used with optical or camera equipment.
- Quick Shot' Adapter
This is designed to directly fit over the magnetic spigot of the Davros and provides a versatile mount that can be used for 'snapshots', or multifunctional rest.
The soft polymer arms will flex enough to support & stabilise binoculars for quick observations and can be adapted to support the butt of the rifle if circumstances require.
For tripod systems using a smaller 1/4" x 20mm photographic thread, it is possible to use a commonly available 3/8" -1/4" UNC conversion piece to fit the Davros. This small piece simply threads inside the Davros, changing the thread size to 1/4", making it compatible with the 'Gen 3 Primos Trigger Sticks' and other 1/4" UNC threaded tripods & supports.
