What if I attach one of these to the bottom picatinny rail? Is this the only way to get side rails on the Archangel?

Or this? Incase your asking "why", I'm attempting to attach a Silencerco Radius rail mounted range finder. Do you think the plactic picatinny rail of the Archangel will hold the weight of the radius if I use this adaptor? 18.2oz. Or will it sag after a while?

That's what I was going to do but I'm not confident in my skills to get it straight. The preferred method is to use a picatinny on the chassis that was engineered into the stock to be "somewhat sora perfectly" aligned parallel with the barrel. The rangefinder and barrel must/should run parallel to each other. If I do it myself who knows how far off it will be at 500 or more yards.

Won't the rangefinder have W/E corrections? So it could be sighted like a scope.

It's sighted parallel to the barrel not to cross with the barrel plane, so the straighter the the rail the better cause there is only so much adjustment. There's a bunch of videos about it on youtube that explains it better than I do. Measurements have to be take then plotted out on the target with reflective tape. I think I'm going to order a Sage EBR when they're back in stock.

You mean the forward rail where you put a bipod?

That should hold.

I don't think you would want to put it on the bottom of the stock. ??bipod would be in the way.
Drill ne hle in the side of the stock;;; second hole would be elong in the verticle . Second hole is in the rear.m Might have to shave some material off the inside . ;;; attached range finder adjust sighting in with rear hole you can move the finder up/ down..
Video the measurement taken looked very sloppy,,, yea this looks about center of the barrel???

How much can you brench press, the stock alone is heavy???

Yeah the one underneath. I'm still thinking about just getting a grey Sage EBR when Clyde gets them in stock again.
