The perfect precision rail monopod… it’s in the name.
The Standard Quick Knob (QK01) allows quick gross adjustments with the push of a button! The Knob has a spring loaded button that when depressed allows the operator to slide the knob up or down on the Actuator Rod quickly into the desired sight picture. When the button is released, the fine threads are re-engaged and the operator can make the final adjustments by rotating the Knob. The Quick Knob replaces the standard knob on BT01, BT04, BT08 and BT12 providing the same approximate range of elevation.
In Australia for Australian conditions Precision Defence Industries suggests the BT12-QK and it is the only monopod we keep in stock as we find it is the most useful Monopod for heavy chassis with a rear rail for a monopod and using a PSR Bipod, other models can be backordered (expect 2-3 weeks for delivery) if your specific application requires a different height.
How to determine best size Accu-Shot Precision Monopod
Please understand that no monopod will be useful across the wide range of shooting situations found in the field. The monopod is offered as an aid, to be used when applicable, not as an answer all. With this in mind, the best we can hope for is to realize a benefit from the Accu-Shot during 85 – 95% of prone shooting and 95-100% from the bench. There are methods to increase the application of the Accu-Shot in fluid or dynamic situations which follow the sizing instructions.
To determine the best monopod for your application the following is offered as a guideline if using a bipod. If you are using another form of front rest, the same procedure applies. You will need something to measure with and a flat level surface.
Set your rifle up on a flat level surface such as a table or shooting bench with the bipod set at the height you most commonly use. Then hold the rifle bore as close to level as possible. Then maintain this position of the rifle while you measure the distance from the point where the monopod attaches (Rear sling stud position measured from the stock or from the flat surface of the rail) down to the supporting flat surface. Then the ideal monopod will give you adjustment on both sides of this measurement.
One consideration you should make is the terrain where you will be using it, if doing range work, measure it there. If Prairie Dog hunting, then try to get a measurement on your next trip or reference the rest you used on your last trip.
It is not a good practice to adjust the monopod leg to get the perfect sight picture, then removing your hand to hold the rifle stock in another area. Try keeping your hand on the monopod leg, with the recoil pad firmly in your shoulder pocket while concentrating on the trigger break.
