I should have saved up for the
MagnetoSpeed V3 model, but I do like a challenge to make it work!
I was extremely surprised by the overall weight after assembling the unit. I am using this unit on my custom 300 PRC and the KRG BRAVO Chassis. I am also running the Area 419 Sidewinder brake which the Sporter model is really not designed for. My bipod is the Sinclair F-Class model which will not let me mount the WP unit on the underside of the fore end, due to the wide footprint of the bipod. The KRG fore end is equipped withe Magpul MOE spaced threaded holes On either side for mounting accessories. At first, all I had was a polymer L2 pic rail to mount it. Tested at the range and after every shot the quick release mount would come loose. I kept tightening the QR mount cross bolts, but it kept coming loose. Frustrated, I put it aside while I came up with a better solution to make this work!
I ordered a set of aftermarket aluminum rails on EBay. I used the L5 rail, re-adjusted the QR cross bolts and mounted the unit up again. Due to the beefy brake, I had to move the WP sliding bayonet adapter under the brakes self timing nut. Knowing the blast from the brake would damage the mounting strap, I cut a piece of aluminum diamond plate out to fit over the strap and secured it with 2 #6 1/4 long sheet metal screws into the 3D printed adapter. Took it to the range set at Hi-2 setting, and it recorded every shot without any adjusting or re-tightening at all.
Note: the QR mount doesn’t work with the polymer pic rails, at least on a heavy recoil caliber, use aluminum rails for a better secure fit.
Very happy with the mount I purchased for my Magnetospeed. I had been experiencing group size variation with the Magnetospeed mounted on my barrel and this solved it. Very easy to setup, install and remove. Great product for a much more reasonable price than other products.
Tried out the wiser precision chrono mount this weekend and it worked pretty good except for a few error readings. I think it was my fault as I may not have tightened it down quite enough. After a couple shots the bayo would skew kind of side ways and read error. If I straightened it up before each shot it was fine. If I can’t tighten enough in the future I’ll add two tiny c-clamps to hold bayo tight against bayo mount. Well thought out and well made piece of equipment. I would definitely recommend this product to others.
This thing works great! Display holder is little tight but no issues. Get the full potential out of your rifle and magneetospeed!
I was surprised how quickly my order was shipped. Unfortunately I have not been able to try the mount out yet, but I can see how this can solve the issue if you don't want something else hanging on the barrel. Impressed with the light weight and well thought out construction.
