I would like some help identifying a dovetail plate. Some background...
I purchased a set of rings that have a handle attached to the top of them. I don't care for the dovetail plate that they came with for a couple of reasons. First, it's painted and not anodized so every time I tighten the main screw down, it mars the paint. Second, the edge is smooth (meaning no "notches") so I'm concerned about no "safety" stops. I've been told by my better half that I can be clumsy.
So, I've done a lot of searching and found images of the dovetail plate I want (I attached an image). What I know...
- It's a Vixen-style dovetail plate.
- It's 7.5" / 19 cm long.
- The screws for the rings should be spaced approximately 6.3" apart.
I'm not sure what the proper term is for the notches/safety stops.
I'm hoping someone can help me identify what I'm looking for and possibly, where to get one.
Thank you for any help.
