Here's the pictures of the new fully sheet metal scope mount in cad form:)

I also got a bunch of trigger covers finished up as well this weekend!

And these trigger covers are comparable w/ the trigger group that Portumac is making ?

To be honest, I think it would be F.A.B. If someone could lay out all the parts to show how they are installed and take some snaps as I’m a bit lost on where some of these go and how to attach them.

I don't unfortunately have one of those triggers to reference but there shouldn't be any fitting issues of the cover, since the trigger is recessed in the frames rectangular opening.
The cover sits right on top of the rectangular block near the back end of that rectangular opening, with the front of the cover hiding the triggers top.

I am working on an instruction sheet as well to go with the parts, so hopefully that will help.

Where does the reference picture come from? It does not show the actual screenused BC IMHO, since the cord/ wire wrapped around the frame is too thin.
Has it been confirmed that a metal sling hook was used?
Hey Markus, the photos they are using "other then the screen used prop photos" are how I designed the strap hook for my personal bowcaster. There is a reason why I went with a metal hook over the other possible option of webbing/canvas. I do have reason to belive it was metal atleast at some point. If you want to know why I believe that shoot me a message or hit me up on FB messenger Troy sente.

All fine Troy, thanks for the reply.
I was just confused by the seemingly "new" reference pictures, which were used to show the use of the metal hook.

I am tempted to use one of Portumac´s hook on my real parts BC, but the cast metal is a PITA to drill into

Well drilling would be the most secure way to mount it, It's not 100% necessarily. I used E-6000 on the bottom of mine. Then wrapped the twine tight around it and used super glue every few wraps you make sure the twine would be tight and not move. It's every secure. If you're not planning on walking around for long periods of time with the full weight of bowcaster hanging around your shoulder you should be good doing it that way.

Hi everyone I just received the scope mounts today and also have an update on the hinges for the barrel support. Here's a picture of the scope mounts which came out amazing and I will have plenty even for the waitlists. I also fully assembled one with the trigger cover:)

Here's a picture of the hinges, they don't have the attachment hole drilled into them as I had a few members ask to drill it themselves to make sure it fits their frames.
I have since for that reason decided to let everyone drill their own attachment hole so that it will for sure fit perfectly to your bowcasters frame.
(If you do need me to drill your hole just send me a message and I can drill the hole to 1.29in from top to center for you.)

I am doing the finishing touches at this point and I am starting to get orders ready to ship, so thank you guys and I look forward to getting everyone their parts!

Here are the stainless steel real stock clips I had to make. I didn't want to make that many, but the set up time was too expensive at my local sheet metal shop to just make 2 or 3 clips. I'm offering each clip for $30.00, two machine screws will be included. The holws will fit 6-32 screws, or 6 sheet metal or wood screws. These will fit any frame. I think now we all be able to finish our Bowcasters' prop projects soon.
I got mine AOK last week- thanks!!

I have done nothing to this bowcaster frame, as I’m waiting on getting every in first. I will say, as an impatient person, it has not been an easy wait.
However! I couldn’t help myself with this trigger. I had to try & pop it in ( nothing permanent ), & it goes right in so beautifully!!

It’s been a very long time since I’ve “PEW PEW”’d around the house with my bowcaster... but I did tonight!!
It looks so much better WITH a trigger sticking out of the frame!

PROGRESS! It’s a beautiful thing.

Thank you Manny!!!
