Dovetail to weaver converters

Post by the_plumber » 18 Mar 2018, 20:50

Hi All,

I have a pulsar Trail XP50 Thermal and the pulsar quick release mounts, I want to be able to swop the scope between 3 different rifles 2 of which have weaver rails but my Daystate air wolf MVT does not!!.

Has anyone had any luck with using dovetail to weaver converters for mounting a thermal to an air rifle??

I have bought some adaptors from flea-bay and found them too tight to fit the rifle and a sloppy fit on the pulsar mount rendering them useless also they need to be at least a 10mm high as to raise them above the 10 shot magazine.

All suggestions great fully received.

Paul

I have a hawke dovetail to weaver adaptor on my air rifle and rimmy, works a treat and return to zero with apex is almost guaranteed. Paid about £25 for it.

You wont be disappointed with them and they will give you plenty of clearance for your magazine . :thumbup:
