Custom Saddle Grip "DOG SADDLE"


Recommended Posts

I got a wild hair to build a new saddle mount for holding firearms that dont have MLok and Keymod Handrails, AKA Standard hunting rifles etc.. And still sit on a ball head or Leveling Base of a Tripod of some sort to have full range of motion.. 

The Arca on this application is bolt on. The next one I will make will be machined directly into it, as one piece. 

I just need to find somewhere that can black anodize if they aren't to expensive

I could dip it after the anodizing, but the anodizing help promote, protect and slightly strengthen the aluminum. Kind of like a case hardened machine screw.

I have a cheap synthetic stock on one of my 22-250 predator rifles. So i made a direct bolt on application of an arca plate for my tripod setups yesterday ..  made out of Delrin and to fit the bottom contour of my stock exactly .. notice the tapered radius

I'm really jealous of you machinist types. it's amazing you guys can make stuff like this in your free time. 

I get my work done as needed and have fun as well. And am not an a$$hole so i can do basically what I want.. lol. I have made so much stuff. They do not allow bang sticks or components in the buiding or else Id be doing some really fun stuff! Starting to machine chokes now. I also Made two of these saddle platforms(not finished in the pic) for my son and I to saddle hunt and be mobile with..    Anything you can think of that I can save money on i make it.. Cause i am cheap, and its fun lol
