quick detach retrofit

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a way to retrofit a red dot sight to take a QD lever in place of the clamping screw?

my google-fu hasn't come up with anything yet

I've been thinking of replacing the crossbolt on one of my Primary Arms red dots with an "adjustable handle" from McMaster-Carr, but I think the threading on the sight body is an unusual metric variety.

Oops, I didn't see your follow-up question. I don't think I can link to a non-vendor website, even an industrial supply place. Check McMaster.com and search for "adjustable handle". It should look something like this:

What kind of weapon is this for?

 

Something like this gives you no ability to clamp the optic back down with the same amount of torque each time. You're not going to get a good re-zero with it, I don't think. You might get close enough for S12 / buckshot patterns.

 

If you're not concerned about re-zero (i.e. it only comes off if the optic fails) then you're probably OK.

yea this is not the direction I am going

I found a UTG QD mount I am going to try (20 bucks I'll try it)

 

If not I found a QD retrotfit kit for an Aimpoint T1 that I may be able to use for about 40$
