Barrel Mirage Shade


Believe it or not, the heat from shooting rounds through a barrel rises up in front of your scope objective and can distort the image you see. That’s why you see all sorts of goofy looking attachments on benchrest barrels during a match. Our Mirage Shade is a simple very lite gauge aluminum 24 inches long and 2 inches wide. Two sets of Velcro attachments are included, and the aluminum shade is easily cut with regular scissors. The Shade should be mounted on the barrel so that the front edge is just a fraction of an inch back from the end of the barrel and the back of the Shade extends past the bell of the scope to the rear. The Shade will guide the barrel heat waves (mirage) around the bell of the scope instead of right in front of it – maybe make that .201 group into a .150!!

Barrel mirage shield

Economic and simple solution to deflect mirage inducing heat away from shooter's sight line. Could be a half inch wider, works well. Velcro Fasteners included.
