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.

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 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.
