The PIG0311-G tripod is based off of the budget friendly yet capable SLIK DX700PRO tripod. ShadowTech partnered up with Slik and started putting together several prototypes with beefed up specs, tighter tolerances and shooter specific features that are not readily available. Eight months of testing later they came up with this field tripod.
During testing they used several 50 cal rifles (Barrett M107 & McMillan Tac50) with great results regarding officer feedback and repeatable shot placement. Being unsure of what kind of garage cannon that might be placed on the PIG0311-G tripod, they decided to stick with a conservative 12Kg load rating.
A no-nonsense field tripod designed for the active outdoorsman. This tripod was meant to get dirty, be thrown in trucks, and be used outside. Paired with a direct mounted PIG Saddle, this tripod can do almost anything a more expensive tripod kit can do (At a fraction the cost).
The Sunwayfoto FB-52 ball head is a great match with this tripod.
The short center column allows the shooter to get all the way down to a 11.5” high prone position.
A removable, load bearing hook has been added to the bottom of the center column to hang weight, such as a backpack. The added weight will greatly increase tripod stability.
The center column can fully rotate 365 degrees. This is a great feature for those who intend to direct mount a saddle to the PIG0311-G tripod.
The tripod’s feet incorporate interchangeable rubber or spiked feet. (spiked feet are included)
12 Kg heavy duty weight rating. But don’t be surprised to see Barrett 50 cal’s being popped off this thing.
Lightweight magnesium body with aluminum legs.
Three section extending legs with cam levers.
Finished off in flat OD Green paint job.
