    Does anyone know where I can purchase the adapter for my sideshot camera mount. I've asked the air hunter guys but they never respond so I figured ask in the forums where people are actually helpful.

    The guys at Side-Shot have gone silent.  Nothing on their youtube, Facebook or web site in over a year.  I am also trying to find out how to adapt the Firefly 8SE to the Side-Shot mount.  I guess I will have to create my own adapter.  Time to break out the 3D printer and cad/cam program to get this done.  If successful I may consider making a kit.

    I customized the Side-Shot mount to adapt a Firefly action camera case so I just have to drop in the Firefly 8se camera now I just press record before I pull the trigger.  With this setup I don’t have to deal with changing the lens of the GoPro camera or refocus it. In my opinion it’s one of the best plug-in-play scope cam setup. Some members here on Airgun Nation are also using my setup. PM me if you are interested in more information. 

    EDIT: Warring hunting video 

    here is a video example.

    Here is a little info on the FireFly setup as well if you do not have the ability to make a adapter plate the link below shows where you can get one along with an installation video.

    Adapter from here: https://orioniguanahunter.com/collections/homepage/products/side-shot-firefly-adapter
    Here is his video he made on setup…. 

    have received and installed my FireFly 8se and Orion Mount plate, I will have to wait until this weekend to test the cam footage on the scope due to its dark now when I get home from work.

    The FireFly 8SE comes with an enclosure that is attached to an adapter that is printed out at a certain thickness with mounting holes in in it. All you have to do is buy the $100 FirFly 8se Cam with the 90 degree lens which comes with the case, then purchase a $20 adapter or make one yourself. You could probably make a adapter plate out of any piece of nylon or plastic or wood for that matter and drill the mounting holes and that's all there is to it.
    I have ordered the mounting plate and camera which should be here shortly, I have the plate bracket just need the cam to get here. The mounting bracket is 10mm thick. I will let you know how it turns out.

    I have received and installed my FireFly 8se adapter onto my Side-Shot cam mount. Very easy install and works great. Just follow Orion The Iguana Hunter's install and settings 

    a little fine adjustment and you should be good to go at a reasonable cost.
