Today we’re going to be talking about the Magpul tripod adapter. How does the help you out? This is going to allow you to be able to mount your firearm onto a camera tripod. That way you stay steady when making the shots that count.
This is going to be suitable if you’re hunting or if you’re shooting some long range and don’t have a good position. This bad boy mounts to any M-LOK then it connects to the RC2 or Q2 rapid connector adapter on the tripod. That’s pretty much standard on all Manfrotto tripods. It’s pretty standard to use, and it’s super easy.
We are running the Alexander Arms .50 Beowulf AR-15. This thing’s pretty crazy and sexy. This is what I usually mount on my tripod, generally with some a night vision or some thermal optics. With this set up I shoot some piggies or some coyotes. Pretty big gun but it gets the job done.
I want to tell you all the products we have here so you can have this same setup at your house or farm or where ever. What we’ve got here is the Manfrotto 290 xtra tripod. It’s a nice tripod, super adjustable, really loving it so far. You can turn this thing a full 360 degrees.
The gun stays stationary until you flip a simple Knob, then you can twist it, turn it, spin it any way you want. Let me tell you how this mount works.
You have a latch on the top of the tripod which is like a lock, all you have to do is flip this latch to unlock it. Then once you unlock, it stays back, and your gun pops out. When you ready to put the gun back you just dropped the gun into there, and it’s locked into place. It’s super solid. Mount works like a charm.
Also, we have a drag located in the middle of the tripod so you can tighten or loosen this to how much drag you’re going to have inside of your swivel if you want to call it that. This makes it pretty hard to move, but you can loosen this to where it’s silky smooth, and you can move whenever.
I keep mine maxed out stiff so it still moves but I can control the gun, and it stays just right where it needs to be.
Again, this thing is perfect for hunting or shooting long range. You can bring this tripod down super flat to the ground where you’re kneeling or can be sitting Indian style.
