    arca swiss rail?

    I want to interface my 300 win mag Guardian lite rifle to a tripod ball head that has an Arca Swiss interface. Do you have any suggestions as to products that can help accomplish this?

    I believe there are products that can adapt a Picatinny rail to Arca Swiss, but the best thing would be if I could replace the Picatinny rail with an Arca Swiss rail because the interface will be more direct.

    I have searched for this, and I can tell you that it is very difficult to find direct arca swiss rail for your rifle without custom ordering the part.

    This is the only one I could find:

    There are also very good M-LOK and Picatinny to Arca Swiss adapters, and they usually cost somewhere between $30 to $90 USD.

    Thanks, I found another product called "Really Right Stuff NATO/Picatinny Dovetail Adapter" which is available from BH Photo Video for USD 80. I guess I was hoping to have a more direct interface between the ball head and the rifle, but have not found anything suitable so far.

    I could maybe drill mounting holes in an Arca Swiss plate using a drill press?

    I use a rrs keymod swiss adapter on my mv. On my wood stock rifles i use a standard swiss qd plate.

    Hello Sir

    Thanks for your question.

    I'm sorry to let you know that since we do not use this system (except some of our Prostaffs) my knowledge of the Arca system is limited. I asked them what they were using (with our without modifications done to the original product) and this is what the came up with:

    Arca swiss interface is basically picatinny without the slots so there's infinite adjustments.

    RRS which is a camera tripod company has a complete SOAR line with this type of mounts.
