    Does anyone know if the Eagle Vision can securely attach to a scope that does not have a threaded eyepiece? I have a BSA Tatical Mil-Mil 4-14 x 44 mm Scope, but it does not have a threaded eyepiece.

    I have the Primary Arms version of that scope, and none of the standard supplied adapter tubes will fit mine. I’ve been debating making a special one or machining the scope eyepiece down a few thousandths. One of the sleeves will almost push over the eyepiece, but not quite.

    My Eagle Vision ft my non-threaded US Optics scope just fine. All I had to do was use the largest of the 3 tubes which slipped over the ocular and they used the included black screws to secure it in place.

    I have used mine on several unthreaded scopes. Like Travels4fun said, you have to use the largest tube & the supplied screws (metal or plastic). This is what comes in the kit:

    • UN-1 Tube = id 39mm, od 44mm, length 53mm
    • UN-2 Tube = id 43.7mm, od 50.5mm, length 62mm
    • UN-3 Tube = id 50.5mm, od 56.5mm, length 62mm
    • HSW-1 Hawke Scope Ring = 36mm
    • CCR-3 Casio Camera Ring = fits Casio EX-ZR1000, EX-ZR1100, EX-ZR1200, EX-ZR1300, EX-ZR1500
    • MPH-1 Mobile Phone Ring = 17mm Thread Size (male)
    • Assortment of Metal and Plastic Screws (12x each)
    • Drawstring Storage Bag

    Check out the specs on the large tube (UN-3) to see if it will fit your scope.

    I agree with travels4fun and Michael.  The system is made for not only a threaded eyepiece but non threaded as well.  Theres a video somewhere on You Tube showing it mounted on a non thread eyepiece.

    I tried the big tube and screws on my Primary Arms branded 4-14X40 FFP and it was next to impossible to get it aligned anywhere close to being something usable. If you slide the big tube on my scope and hold it in place with one set of screws so there’s enough sticking out beyond the eyepiece to slide the inner tube that is attached to the camera, it will not hold straight enough to support the camera without tightening the screws so tight they’d dig into the rubber coating of the eyepiece. Tried sliding it up far enough so that both sets of screws would tighten onto the eyepiece, then there was not enough of it sticking out beyond the eyepiece to slide the inner tube into it… I tried desperately to make it work to no avail. I’m going to do some more research and try to figure out something because I really want to mount my camera to the gun that has this scope on it. Right now, my only option is the Seben/Orion and that thing is just too much trouble too… If I figure out something, I’ll post up.

    Thanks for all the replies. I guess I just need to measure the eyepiece on my scope and compare it to the measurements that Michael listed.

    Thanks again!

    This evening I was able to get the middle size tube on the focus ring of the eyepiece of the 4-14×44 far enough to stabilize it. Since I have the Zr1000 camera, the front ring turns and I glued the adapter so as not to bind up the ring with glue where it would not turn. I was able to install the tight fitting tube on the scope, then screw the camera onto the mount by rotating the glued on adapter ring threading it to the tube. it worked pretty well. I will try to do some shooting with it this weekend. The fit up actually looks pretty nice once in place. And the cross hairs are dead center in the view finder once zoomed in.

    I don’t really understand all of that, but it’s good to know that you were able to get it to fit.  I think I’ll just go ahead and order a kit now, and refer back to your message when I have the parts in hand.  Thanks again!

    Hello,

    This is the video that shows how to install the Eagle Vision Scope Cam mount to a non-threaded scope.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnF4jrg-aWw

    Only problem is the video is not in English, but if you watch it carefully you will see how the Eagle Vision Cam Scope Cam can be mounted to any scope.  Wish there was a way to translate the video to English.

    Very good video Fred. Thanks for posting. One thing I notice in this video and all the others that I have seen is that they glue the adapter ring to the camera in such a way as to defeat the operation of the front ring on the camera. When I glued mine on, I was careful to only put glue (a good 1 hour epoxy) on the part of the ring and adapter so when mated together, the adapter is glued ONLY to the ring itself thus the ring functions still work AND it makes aligning the crosshairs in the scope much easier than having to loosen/tighten screws. You just simply rotate the camera itself slightly. The way I got mine to fit, I can actually leave the tube for the 4-14 FFP Primary arms on the scope and just screw the adapter ring that is glued onto the camera right onto the tube by rotating just the ring threading it onto the adapter. When I switch to my Hawke, I unscrew the camera off the tube mounted to the 4-14 FFP scope and screw it to the threaded adapter that comes with the kit for the Hawke scope. That way, I can keep both mounts set up and make the switch with the camera literally in seconds.

    When I saw that man applying super glue to the function ring I was stunned as he locked up the ring. and thus prevented it from rotating.  I’ll be careful not to do that!  I’m still trying to figure out what that material was that he used to take up the slack between the Eagle Vision large tube and his scope.  Any one have any idea what that material was?

    Hey SaltH20
    it is amazing that people don’t search out information that is available to utilize the  Eaglevision gear.  You appear to realize completing the cam setup by following directions and being able to have good results. I have all the Eaglevision gear including an Infinity mount.  I also have several other camera mounting systems to try out.  I’m looking forward to mounting the Eaglevision system and Hawke Sidewinder onto both my FX Royale Boss.  I’m awaiting a FX Crown Lack pepper laminated in .30 caliber.  I do have a second Sidewinder Scope that could be mounted utilizing the FX No-Limit Mounts.  I does appear to me that the Eaglevision and Infinity mount set up is meant as a camera setup system and not to be utilized as a non-camera setup.

    For many years I was a Firearms Instructor for a Sheriff’S Department but upon retirement have developed a great interest in PCP and all the gear utilized to be proficient and knowledgabe about PCP Air Gunning.  PCP Airgunning has been fuffilling but i have spent a small fortune in my FX and Sumatra PCP purchases including a small and larger Carbon Fiber tanks and an Omega Super Charger.

    I have the Eagle Vision C-3 Kit.  I have the Sidewinder 30 scope 6-24X56 scope.  I'm confused as to needing the HS1 or HS2 ring for attaching to the scope threads.  I don't mind ordering both rings if it would be a good thing to do to guarantee hookup.  I actually have numerous brands of Scope Cam packages and hopefully I can get around to trying them all out.  The Eagle Vision gear looks to be a top quality choice.
