With Night Vision (NV) scopes, there can be problems mounting them to the dovetails of an air rifle. The solution is a dovetail to Weaver/Picatinny adaptor mount, as the top face of the adaptor is Weaver- compatible, while the underside is machined to secure onto an air rifle’s dovetails. BKL Technologies offer a good selection, manufactured from aircraft grade aluminium. There are four types to suit most configurations. Full-length adaptor for uninterrupted receivers, one-piece bridge adaptor this overcomes a magazine that protrudes above the action, cantilever setback for NV with a short eye-relief and to give more elevation adjustment). Finally, a two-piece, which allow fitting to guns that need even more allowances. All feature auto centring technology that solves problems created by varying rail width, the design of the ‘clamping legs’ ensures they are perfectly centred onto the dovetails. Granted, we are seeing more air rifles with Weaver rails as standard, instead of standard dovetails but overall this type of adaptor is the only solution.
