The all new FM-500B is the latest upgrade from the FM-400B with taller side walls, longer main frame while still maintaining the same low weight of only 1.25 lbs. The FM-500B is absolutely the best tripod gun mount ever invented. Dual moving wall clamps always maintains the center of gravity on tripod which is critical for heave weapons to maintain perfect vertical orientation as required to accurate long range shooting. The reversible side walls can switch between soft-side surface or hard-side with both having direct picatinny interlock with gun side rails. Picatinny lower center rail slot allows rifle or pistol connection without the need of using side clamps. The direct Arca Swiss tripod interface eliminate the need of a QR adapter plate for added reliability, lower cost and weight.
