Im am trying to come up with design for my DT SRS but generic enouh to fit on my other rifles... i dont know when ill be finish with it... but give me some details, specs, ideas, and ill try to incorporate.... here is what i have so far..l just started this morning... the tube clamp will be screwed to a picatinny QD mount...

I just need to design a mechanism to connect the bayonet to the rod that allows for hieght adjustment....

Send me a PM so i have your contact and ill hit you up.... hopefully soon..

I would go down a few inches from the pic rail and then over to the bottom of the magnetospeed so you can position that original mount right where it should go floating below the (now unused) shim and addressing the barrel in the same way they intended.

Ah... Yeah...I grabbed this screen shoot before I really thought about it... Of course your idea is a better direction as the bayonet need to be much higher than this arrangement would allow.....

BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD....

Um... not really... if you have some suggestions please forward... I have an SRS so the length of lateral adjustment I need is minimal and really didn't see the need to mounting the readout... but it should be pretty easy to incorporate... I post the progress here.

I made something similar back when I had a sporter. 7098049

I printed an internal and external block to better support the device.
7098050


Eventually I cut the housing because my brakes were still getting in the way.

7098053
7098054

I also made that bore spacer to put the sensor 1/8” off the bore.

The one thing I searched high and low for was a picattiny adapter that just had a blank area that could be customized.

Repurposing some cheap scope mounts; a 3d part would be lighter. Add 1/2" rod. You can put a small flat on the rod to add another short section atop it to move the sensor closer. Alternately you heat up the rod and "joggle" the sensor closer. <$20

Did a V3 with some cheap chinese scope rings and a bit of work on the lathe.

Double ball joint works on Rimfire . would have issues on centerfire as its just too flimsfy , also multi axis freedom of two balls is not needed so a 3d printed solution will likely be next.


*Note that if you have stock rails paralel to the bore making a mount is actualy very easy and you so not need any fancy ball joints
