Fast and easy to setup, prone or bench, a time-saver whenever you have to spot your own shots.

You will have to spend $1,283 (excluding shipping) and buy the Ashbury TACT3 Sel model with their Tactical Interface Mount (T.I.M.) to match the Sniper Ops Tactical Tripod. See the next page ("Pictures Don't Lie") for side-by-side photos, measurements, and feature comparisons of our tripod versus an Ashbury TACT3 and the Manfrotto.
Provides four independent head mount controls to adjust your scope five different ways: height, horizontal pan, front to back coarse elevation, micro elevation, and lateral side tilt.
(FYI, with some other tripods with a single knob control system, the wrong axis can become loose at the wrong time so your spotting scope gets too loose, too fast.)
When used in prone, your rifle can be snug right up close to your spotting scope because the legs of this tripod are out of the way, a more comfortable, uncluttered arrangement.
A beast of a tripod, we use high quality machined aluminum parts anodized with a very durable finish. The rods are one-inch diameter, which do better in the wind (than smaller .75 inch diameter rods). The head mount is machined from acetal, a very tough hard thermoplastic material.
Connect any number of rods together to make it as tall as you want to fit any observation situation. We have a variety of adapters and accessories that cross over from tactical to hi-power
The Sniper Ops Tactical Tripod weighs 44-ounces (2.75 pounds) with one rod. It breaks down to a convenient 13 inches length. There are no telescoping legs like with camera tripods.
This tripod requires NO TOOLS to make sight adjustments (unlike scope stands) or to attach your spotting scope to the head mount.
With this head mount plus tripod legs that stay in place and won't flare outward, you'll have a tripod that will support at least 10 POUNDS OF PAYLOAD and easily adjusts to uneven or rocky terrain.
Our slide-through head mount allows you to have multiple low height options other tripods can't match. You just loosen one knob and run the slide-through head mount up or down the center rod.
The head mount can be placed to rest upon the collet. The tension knob on the head mount can then be eased up during operation, which allows the scope to be swung around to the right or left faster to accomplish target acquisitions more quickly. NOTE: The head mount functions absolutely perfectly without this collet.
