    Barrel Clamp Optics

    I've had some success in the past mounting optics (LER and Red Dot's) on barrel clamp pic rails.

    We're not talking sub-MOA here, but minute of man or manufacturers advertised reticle size.

    My most recent experiment was mounting a Bushnell TRS to a barrel clamped T97 here (warning - cute My Little Pony music, also don't mind the stupid looking carry handle scope - I since pulled that thing off):

    .

    With that config, I was consistently scoring 5 round, 2" groups at 50 yards with Nork surplus, which I was very pleased with (I did score a few 1.5" groups too).

    I since mounted the foreend carry handle mounts, which themselves partially clamp onto the barrel.

    I also placed 3rd at my clubs annual fun shoot, shooting a CZ858 with a barrel clamp mounted Bushnell LER, using this mount and these rings:

    Afterwards, we setup a "sucker tree" which is a wooden target stand that we put lollipops on - and I was able to pretty consistently hit suckers at 50 yards with that setup.

    Anyone else have any experience mounting optics on barrel clamps? Any criticisms/thoughts?

    Why didn't you just get this one I seen on youtube being sold at reliable gun if you were having such issues?

    The scope was just too long, and to shoot the iron sights, it kept jabbing me in the forehead. The mount was fine.

    I can do that with the current setup I have (not in the video) using a smaller scope that doesn't protrude past the rear of the carry handle.
