Has anyone used these that can give a review or advice? Looking to develop a solution to mount a rifle to a Manfrotto 322 RC2 joystick head. Wondering if this would be better than multiple adapters stacked up to get to an ARCA rail. Thoughts are appreciated.

The above link is what I saw. The only review I’ve seen from actual user looks like pics and reads like an extended product description. I’ll include below. From the pics, they look like relatively light weight AR-type rifles he is using. I would do the same, but also interested in putting on a bit heavier precision bolt gun.

The problem with that style of tripod mounting is that you still get a lot of wiggle out of the connections. Before we developed our M-Lok Arca/RRS adapters, we shot quite a bit with the MagPul one listed above and found it okay, but not what we needed. From my experience, limited as it may be, reducing the number of connections between the rifle and tripod will get you more stability, and in the long run, more impacts down range.

Our current "go to" setup are SLIK PRO 700 legs, a leveling base (as opposed to the ball head) and an Arca/RRS QD clamp attached to one of our M-Lok Arca adapters. This setup will reduce wiggle, keep you on target and support rifle nearing 30 lbs! The other upside to running Arca/RRS is that you get almost infinite adjustability of accessories (especially bipods for tricky stages), which again can result in more impacts :D
