    Scope/camera ring

    After seeing @Nibblet 's one I decided to have a crack at it. I knew I had a set of new rings somewhere that came with a scope but they were stupidly high and never got used so into the gun room and a quick search I found them.

    Into the shed to with the bits and pieces and started off by searching for a bolt that'll fit into the camera

    So first work on the ring was taking this bump off so I could get the square flush

    Then marked it, was a little stuff up on my part I couldn't find my scribe until after I used the knife to mark it!

    So with a bit of Kiwi ingenuity I just put the brass screw into the hole and started screwing it hoping it would work and bingo it did.

    Easy fix, covered it with tape when I put it on the scope just to protect the scopes finish

    I made a rig for my video camera that you could flip the screen open and video straight down the scope so you had the cross hairs on the screen in front of you , kids liked to use it when they were to small for a couple of the rifles I could also make sure where they were going to hit before firing by just looking at the screen it cut down on wounded animals and taught them about shot placement .

    Here's the first kill with it. 3 today! Keep this up until there's none left, gun was empty! I like the way it is kinda centered on the kill sitting on the scope up there

    Toby I hope you are sending Nibblet a commission as he took a patent out this afternoon.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    this is what you see on the screen and recording , the bird was sitting on a fence 100m away . you can use the scope magnification plus the zoom on the camera .

    Here's what is made a couple of weeks ago. Just left the scope ring as is and used Hal a ruger scope rail for the camera. Took about 5 mins to make. Problem is I need a decent zoom vid cam now but it worked a treat as dead on target.
