Spartan currently offer two slightly different designs of optics adapter for use with a range of optics & accessories.
- The Optics Adapter
The Optics Adapter is designed to simply slip over the 12mm spigot of the Sentinel or Titan' tripods, the Davros and leg top of each the Sentinel's legs.
Making use of simple friction fit and magnetic attachment the adapter is intended to temporary hold and stabilise a small optics, compact or action cameras etc.
It can also be used with other small accessories such as 'Kestrel' Anonometers or range finders, mobile phones etc, (when combined with a suitable holder or 1/4"x20mm female thread fitting.)
The adapter works well in this role to simply hold and stabilise the device for a short duration.
We would not recommend its use for longer-term observations with higher magnification optics or larger SLR type of cameras, which require a firmer attachment and greater precision in use. For this role, we would always recommend the Heavy Optics Adapter.
2. The Heavy Optics Adapter
This adapter also works with our 12mm spigot universal to our products.
In addition to the friction fitting and magnetic attachment, it adds a clamping lever that further secures the optic, camera or accessory to the spigot fitting,
The Heavy Optics Adapter enables rapid attachment and detachment of any suitable accessory. It is a lightweight adapter and ideal where space & weight considerations are important factors in the choice of equipment.
The kit comes with the adapter, an industry-standard 1/4" x 20mm camera/optic screw, & polymer plate to fit between the device and the adapter.
It is a versatile fitting and can be adapted to support other suitable accessories for hands-free use, such as this spotting lamp.
We are also able to offer both 12.5mm Spigots & 12.5mm Heavy Optics Adapters, which are suitable for customers that already use the genuine Blaser rifles' carbon bipod & adapter fittings (These are all 12.5mm.)
