    I think one of the coolest things I’ve “discovered” on this forum is the concept of live recording of target or hunting with scoped air rifles.  I’ve searched, read, and watched a lot of posts, youtube, etc.  Looks like a person can DIY for $10-20 or spend $50-$1,000 for commercial systems. I don’t want DIY. Everytime I go DIY I end up “needing” more power tools and thus, spend more money. (ha).

    I also want to use my iPhone 7Plus which is pretty much the same size as the 6Plus except a fraction more thin. 

    Looks like G-Line, Discovery Optics, and I-Scope are the best options (maybe Eagle Vision too?).  My criteria:

    1. Under $100 (who knows if I’ll really like this or not?
    2. Commercial product
    3. Fits Iphone 7 Plus
    4. Clear Video
    5. Fits MTC Viper Connect scope
    6. Won’t damage phone or scope.

    Thanks!

    I just got 2 iPhone 7 Plus cases from Discovery Optics dealer in USA.

    I needed the 38-43mm scope adapter for one scope and a 43-48mm adapter for the other

    Perfect fit and very nicely made

    I think delivery was 10 days last time I checked

    Thanks!  I like that Discovery better than ISCOPE because there aren’t any screws projecting. I need to measure my scope diameters.

    BenGunn,
    I started a thread on this forum called “You Guys Make it Look Easy”.  I bought this Discovery.  Mine came with the adjustable plate (knurled knobs that adjust for different phone widths).  It fits my 7Pllus and I put it on two different scopes. I get only a tiny or no picture. I’m sure I don’t have something set correctly.  I hope I can make it work. I bought off a dealer on Ebay so I don’t think returning is possible.

    I do agree this Discovery is well-made and stable on the scope.

    I have the eagle vision mount for my iPhone, and this Doscovery Optics system looks like a better design.  And it’s about half the price

    Has anyone found a mount for a regular iPhone 7 other than the universal adapter?

    Its using your scope via the camera phone. If your scope is etched then that what you see via the scope cam
