GoPro Glock Mount

The lengths people will go to get footage… So much for your dignity:

You can buy it over at Strikemark for $30 if it tickles your fancy.

I’m holding out for a Glock rail mount that will let me shoot while I shoot with my DSLR and 1200mm anti-aircraft Canon lens i’m planning on buying.  Here’s a mockup for your viewing pleasure:

Side note:

Strikemark.. for the love of God, fire your current web guy.  This shit right here.. not acceptable:

Yes 3.68MB with a 1869×1869 px resolution, you’re reading that correctly.  All their product shots are 24 bit PNG files with transparency. *tactical facepalm*

Anyone else got a hankering to shoot while they shoot?  Perhaps a TV camera attached to a Deagle is your combo of choice?

Yo Dawg I heard you like Glocks so we put a Glock on your Glock so you can shoot while you shoot.

What if I attached a camera to the Canon AR-15?

I made a rail attachment once that interfaced with the standard 1/4-20 threads that most cameras and tripods have. It did get some awesome shots, but the problem was my camera sucked and recoil would knock it out of focus if trying to shoot video. $30, someone beat me to market haha.

I once built a crappy laser microphone out of a laser sight, (and some other stuff) ran it through a mic-preamp and got it all contained (somewhat) inside an airsoft glock 18c. That hollow back strap is REALLY useful.

However the photocell pick up required some work to get positioned right (every use), so it wasent quite like splinter cell.

contour mount looks better then the gopro

Is it REALLY that hard to mount a camera on a 4 foot tripod and shoot over it?

Sivl32 February 16, 2012 at 02:52 am

yeah but then there is shot transition for multiple targets, gotta catch it all… tho gun mounted cameras provide horrible video.. the recoil doesn’t make it much fun to watch.

That’d be my concern…try watching some of the GoPro filmed karting videos on Youtube. The asphalt stuff is bearable, but the dirt races tend to shake…a lot. They are helmet or rollbar mounted, but the out of focus dizzying shake you see when the track gets bumpy is pretty damned realistic. It’ll also make the average observer slightly motion sick. That being said, I can’t imagine a on-weapon mount without some sort of isolators built in will produce a viewer-friendly result.

If you write for a print mag, your layout people will REALLY appreciate good quality png:s. Not that you usually get them. So don’t knock it :).

What bothers me about these images is the finger on the trigger when obviously NOT shooting. But maybe that’s just me.

Yea, huge PNGs are nice for print/design or anything else non internet based. Someone that makes websites should know that web != paper , and 3.6MB file sizes for pictures are no where near acceptable!

I run a gopro here in Afghanistan. I have it attached to the side of my helmet. I have used it setup to look over my shoulder with a small gorilla pod and also tried their NVG mount (did not like that at all). A few of my buddies run contours on their helmet. The contours are smaller, but they do less than gopros. I would not put either of them on a handgun though, rifle or shotgun yes. But not a handgun, it looks pretty stupid.

Eric,
What mounting system do you use on the gopro to mount? You running a crye precision helmet with ops core rails? What system to get it on the rails?

I’d be obliged if you link me up with this stuff.

Glock+Camera= “Shoot while you Shoot”
Glock+Camera+Bourbon=”Shoot while you Shoot while you Shoot”

Actually, if someone Like Freddiew or Corridor Digital got a hold of one of these, Their Vids would be even more Bad-Ass.

Personally, I’d attach that bad boy to a Barret M82(Or is it M107 now?) and get some target practice, AND have a Badazz vid to prove how awesome (Or not) I am.

I often wear my GoPro when I shoot steel and trap. It makes a great video. The more progun videos we can flood Facebook and YouTube with is a win for all of us.

i bought the picatinny attachment they make, and it pretty much sucked out of the box… i had to take off a bunch of material just to get it to slide onto a standard rail, then once i got it on there and supposedly locked down.. .the damn thing came loose after 3 shots of 50 beowulf. this glock one is a neat idea but i dunno if itll work in practice.

Chaos,
This is Yanne with Strikemark. First, I apologize your mount wasn’t up to snuff. “Standard rail” is a bit of a misnomer though. We test our mounts on four different supposedly “standard” picatinny rail systems that are all Mil-Std from different manufacturers when we design and QA these mounts -and they all fit differently believe it or not. Some manufacturers powder coat their rails, coat them in ceramic, anodize them, etc. Its a tough mark to hit when you’re creating a standardized product that’s supposed to fit on a product that 1000 different manufacturers are making and that are all supposed to be the same. In any case, back to your mount not being up to par -you might have had one of our earlier versions. PM me at icr@strikemark.com with your name and mailing address. I’ll lookup your old order and send you out our latest and greatest…better fit, anodized, laser etched. Redemption time.

1200mm Canon Lens? That’s the one that can take down helicopters right?

Yes. From 5 miles away. Maybe further if it has a shoulder thing that goes up.

I forsee some sore knuckles though, when those things go swinging back after recoil.

Still not as stupid as a pistol bayonet.

I’d rather have made a camera designed as a Glock !
You can aim at your targets, shoot’em, an get the picture proving you’re a sharpshooter. Maybe work out something with a little aimpoint on the lens, so that when you see the pic, you get where you’d have hit with a real Glock.
Otherwise just attach it to your helmet/goggles/whatever…

Those file sizes are out of control! I opened one of the Strikeplate whatever its called… 31MB! 3800×3800!

I got it down to 362kb PNG with transparency, and at a respectable size for the “View larger image” link. You could make the image even smaller for the product description page.

Needs to learn the difference between myImage01_small.png and myImage01_frakinHuge.png

This gives me an idea. What if someone were to make a rail mounted flashlight/laser/video camera combo. It could be used by police departments to record all police shootings to determine if a shoot was good or bad and to use as a training video for other officers down the line.

ENDO-Mike February 16, 2012 at 12:50 pm

A few of those type of systems do exist, they are fairly bulky though. Here’s actually a head mounted camera that seems to be a better idea http://www.everydaynodaysoff.com/2010/04/05/head-mounted-police-cameras/ it’s not THAT big, and the quality looks decent.

Mike I’m still waiting on K9 mounted police cameras. C’mon chief, work your photoshop mojo.

The J February 17, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Ya know, I would be willing to let my property taxes go up if my local agency would make cameras like that mandatory and make the video available to the public for review (of course not for undercover officers). Police corruption/abuse/brutality/misconduct would end overnight if cops knew that when they were on duty, the whole town was literally looking over their shoulders and watching what they are doing.

Tim Ellwood February 16, 2012 at 05:47 pm

Great idea, I thought so six years ago and made the “advanced tactical camera” ( I went out of business).
Burris / legend tech thought so after me and came out with the “Pistol Cam” (Now also defunct)
I had federal officers yell at me at FPED because I was selling such a thing, telling me they would “never put a %$^&*^% camera on their guns”! The new Looxcie 10hr cam has promise, I just bought one to see how well it works.
