Anyone know of a quality product that can turn spotting scope tripod (swarovski carbon ) into a gun rest so both do not have to be carried? Wanted to send to someone as a gift. I do not have a spotting scope or tripod. Are the heads easily detachable in the field? Friend that took me hunting bemoaned the fact that he had to carry both shooting rest and tripod. Thanks.

I would think a good tripod could be used for both I would go with a Bogen Manfrotto tripod but with a ball head on a short column. I have a Gitzo brand ball head that I really like on my Bogen tripod but you could use a quick release plate system and buy two plates one for the rifle and one for the spotting scope these are threaded 1/4 20 threads and you could have a gunsmith set up the rifle stock to accept the quick release plate.

    This is a positionable self locking articulated arm that would also work and includes a base that has three feet but the cool thing is they spin back and hide one under the other, also the lever coming off of the middle of the arem pivots to lock the arm into place similar to what a ball head does you put the arm in the position you want it and turn the middle handle till it snaps and locks in place while not quite as sturdy as a Photo grade tripod it is without a double better than the crap tripods that come with spotting scopes and are found anywhere but pro photo supply stores.
