Thread: Barrel Mount for Video Camera

    Barrel Mount for Video Camera

    Hi All,

    Does anyone have a means of mounting a camera or video to their rifle barrel when out stalking?

    I have come across these RAK'd UP Universal Gun Bow Camera Mount in black
    and wondered if anyone else has used one?

    Is there a similar thing available closer than ordering direct from the US?

    I would be interested to see the results!

    Thanks
    LT.

    Have a look at the Go Pro HD.

    I am pretty sure you could mount one of those to your gun as you can mount them to a ski pole which is not that far off a gun barrel.

    Mounting it on the barrel? Surely, that would mess with the harmonics and effect the accuracy of the rifle.

    Wouldn't it be better mounted on the scope tube?
    A pat on the back is often just a recce for the knife.

    $69... christ that's expensive!

    Why not make one...

    An old alloy dove tail air rifle scope mount
    Some insulating tape to protect your scope barrel
    Small block of wood cut to fit dove tails
    Drilled and counter sunk for a bolt with same thread as camera mount and cut to size
    Simples

    (Caveat, I've not tried this so in way can be held responsible for damaging your rifle, scope, camera... )

    Eggy, I was looking for a bracket to mount the camera I already have, not go to the expense of buying a new camera. Thanks for the input though.

    I would have thought so too...

    Not a bad idea Stig. Better be careful that your foot doesn't fall off, Blackadder!!!

    I might give it a try. Just thought that the one in the link could be quickly swapped between rifle and shotgun and easily removed from both if not required. I will give the subject some more thought.

    Anyone else have any input?
