Default Bog Deathgrip Modification

Love my carbon Deathgrip, hate the weight. Half the total weight is in the Bog ďsaddleĒ head. Plus the head does not stay locked in tight.

I wanted to replace the head with a higher quality one that also sheds some weight if possible.

Removed the head and measured the inside dia of the cylinder and had a friend 3D print a bushing to accept a 3/8Ē bolt. Now I can swap it to any head I want. The head in the photo is just a mock up off of my DSLR monopod.



Video of the bushing

I donít run a bog pod, but ARCA rails are definitely WAY better than any of the clamp mounts out there, and Iíve tried pretty much all of them at some point.
Thereís no way Iíd go back to a clamp.

For sure, Iím looking to go that route but undecided on which rails I want to use. Lots of options out there.

The 419s are nice, Iíve been looking at the SRS arca/pic rail so I can also run the Atlas on it if needed

If it were me, Iíd just put an Arca clamp on your atlas and run a 8-10Ē Arca rail on your rifle. Itíll make your life a lot easier.

If you swap your bipod between rifles and still want to be able to mount it to pic rails, Really Right Stuff makes a clamp that works with both Arca and Pic rails.
