  • Mirage Shields

    I have a rifle being built and looking for a mirage shield but only able to find the Sinclair (Venetian blind looking) mirage shield. Finding it hard to mount that on my new rifle so looking for something a little cleaner looking? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    My mirage shield rolls up and fits into a pill bottle. It's a wide strip of black sewing ribbon, with three Velcro dots peel-n-stick'd onto it. Works. I also kinda like the blue ribbon with the white stars...

    Good marksmanship is no accident.

      Think about a blow tube on the left side mounted to/along the scope base or receiver. As you exhale to the bottom of the breath cycle thru the flex tubing it will blow the barrel mirage away, an give you 4-5 seconds to break the shot. Don't know how to post photos in a thread or I'd post one of mine. Have them on all lr sticks, and they cost almost nothing to make.

        I just use the black elastic champions choice unit. You need a front sight tenon or block but they work excellent.

                  Add a couple of extra velco tabs, it will help hold that carbon fiber shield better. We have two, near indestructable and light.

                            That would be easy enough to make myself.

                                and they weigh a ton. I have one. Cant run it, puts almost all of my F-TR rigs over weight. They are not just carbon fiber, they are CF glued to a plastic backer.

                                    Have you weighed it? Just curious.

                                      74g
                                      I peeled the backer off and the backer weighed 48g. The problem with that was that the glue between the backer and the CF is not affected by lacquer thinner, acetone, purple degreaser, or turpentine. I rattle can painted the glue and it makes it not sticky, but the sticky is still there just under the paint so if you scratch it it's there again.

                                      I made a comment about this on Accurate Shooter and Mark said he can make them without the backer if you want. I My F-TR rifles run very close to he weight limits, (I run heavy barrels) so I can't spare the weight.

                                        I was going to make one, I've got CF fabric and a 4 inch pvc tube to lay it up on for the curve. Couple velcro dots and I should be good.
