Default Some redneck engineering for you (Pics)



30 minutes before I got in the stand today, I decided to rig up a riflecam. I split some conduit in half, chopped off a part of an AK-47 receiver, welded it all together and zip tied it to the rifle. and no it aint purty but it works. Unfortunately there was nothing for me to pull the trigger on today.

I think that will jump at the shot too much, won't it?

I like it. It looks like it would work real good for stand hunting. I doubt the recoil would be a problem and would really add a realistic touch and feel to the video when you shoot.

When you break that two piece tube scope in half when the gun recoils don't say I didn't warn you.

Sorry, I didn't mean to come off a-hole-ish but he did say that he took it to the field today but didn't see anything to pull the trigger on.

Great job on the fabrication of the camera mount but I would be very very leary of attaching that much weight that high up and to the side of the scope right where the tube comes together.
