- When assembling it it helped me where to put what washer and other things in the full thread below:
There are some nice pic's from Explore Scientific that took away my confusion.
Having the washer on the wrong place will make it unstable. This is same on other similar brands.

Hummm, it looks to me very much like a tele-optic 's Giro mount.
Maybe a Giro "knockoff", but I suspect some quite licensing. ES seems to be part of the NORINCO empire. At NEAF I asked the ES rep if the Twilignt shaft was the same as the Giro 3's and was told it was and the scope adapter could be used on my Giro. The adapter when sold by Teton was something like $70. Giro has it listed for 28 Euro. I'm waiting for Giro to get back to me that some spares have "come in." From China I suspect.
