Title: Umarex Gauntlet: Barrel Shroud Support (Video)
Post by: Hajimoto on January 25, 2018, 06:30:39 AM
Hey guys!

It's time for another Umarex Gauntlet Hajification video  :D  This time we address one of the biggest gripes most users have with rifles of this configuration, the free-floating barrel and barrel shroud.  When the shroud is hit or bumped while hunting the POI changes requiring the shooter to resight the weapon.

My solution is a 3D printed component that clamps onto the air bottle and supports the barrel shroud. The bottom of the clamp also has a small section of Picatinny rail for a flashlight or pointer.  Do not mount a bipod or rest of any kind on this as it will directly change your POI higher as the tank is directly connected to the barrel by the band. If the bottle is pushed up, so is the barrel.


In this video, I walk you through the issue and how I solved it.

Please, be sure to read the YouTube video description for details. There is a lot of information in there, be sure to read it all  ;)

Thank you!
