Our latest product to be a game changer for the shooter wishing to maximize his tripod shooting toolbox is the Freedom Quick Release Mount. This adapter allows you to interface between picatinny rail and any manufactures tripod quick release plate with a 1/4″-20 male thread. The one-piece design slides onto the pic rail and then is locked into place by two hex drive cross bolts.
The adapter also has a counter sunk hole within to allow the shooter to attach anything to this adapter with the included 1/4″-20 hex drive socket head screw protruding out of the adapter. There are disadvantages and advantages to locking your rifle into your tripod support.
This adapter allows the shooter to have this piece attached to their rifle without taking up a bunch of real estate and which can be quickly snapped in and out of the quick release system.
The combination of this adapter and our shooting cradle allows the shooter to have a large majority of his support needs met while maintaining the continuity of a single tripod system. There are additional photos of this adapter in the field in the photo gallery.
