PARD 019 . External IR

Recommended Posts

I've just received my new 019 spotter, and I would now like to fit an external IR to it, but can't see where it would go?

You can fit a small rail to the underside using the tripod mount threads.
Then fit something that way, or a friend of mine fitted a rail to the side , but its a bit of a faff.
The on board one zoomed in  is pretty good though.

I did experiment with putting extra IR and a range finder on one , but it became too big and bulky.

Thanks. I've also received a link from Pete Dodsworth regarding this. 

UPDATE: I've found a small Weaver/Picatinny rail with screw that fits. 😊

Try and get a screw that sits flush, otherwise you will not be able to mount  it central , if its a small rail.

Yes, the screw came with the rail and does actually sit flush. Thanks.:good:

Hello, how you getting on with the pard 019 Steve ?, Did you need to get one of those plus lenses ? Mine came with a small weaver add on kit, but never needed to use extra I/R, the on board I/R seems to do 150 yards with the pull ring out to 1/2 3/4 way, a word of caution is the small weaver adapter, I found the stud is to long ?  Look inside the thread hole ? A shorter stud will sit the adapter better on the unit,

Good afternoon. I haven't had chance to try it out properly yet. I think I may be lucky to get away without using the + lenses. I found, in my box of odds n sods, a small weaver rail with built in screw, and that fitted perfectly on the 019. I haven't tried out the IR yet, as I've just finished a bank of 5 x 14hr night shifts (social care) but hope to try it out soon, even if it's from my back bedroom window.

Has anyone got a link for a small picatinny/weaver rail with screw to fit the PARD 019 spotter. I fitted one that I found in my box of bits and pieces, but don't know where I got it from. There's a guy on Facebook asking about it. I can't even find the link I had off Pete Dodsworth regarding this.

No. I've checked everywhere online and can't find it. As mentioned, I had a small Picatinny rail with screw in my 'box of bits' which luckily for me, was the right size/thread. I may have bought it via Ali Express. I haven't checked them out yet.

To be honest, I haven't tried my 019 out properly yet, and I'm looking forward to using it when out after Foxes etc.
