The Airsoft3D "Picatinny Rail to Rail Adapter" lets you mount two Picatinny rails back-to-back. It's primary purpose is to allow you to attach anything with a Picatinny rail to anything else with a Picatinny rail.
For example, you can mount an airsoft handgun to the bottom of a quad-rail on an airsoft assault rifle. Or you can attach an airsoft saw-off shotgun to the bottom of an airsoft assault rifle. You can use it to create interesting combinations for airsoft, cosplay and movie making. The possibility is only limited by your imagination.
This web page provides the proper instruction for using this Picatinny rail to Picatinny rail adapter.
You can get the Picatinny rail to Picatinny rail mount adapter in plastic or stainless steel. The plastic version can be ordered through Sculpteo, while the stainless steel version can be ordered through Shapeways. See "Related Links" below for direct links.
The Picatinny to Picatinny adapter comes in three different pieces. If you have it printed through Sculpteo, they will be in separate ziplock bags (see photo below).
The photo below shows the three pieces after you un-pack them. They will be in the color and material that you ordered.
You will also need two sets of screws and nuts--M5x25mm or #8-32x1"--to fasten this mount to Picatinny accessory rails. The screws and nuts are not include, but can be easily sourced from your local hardware store (e.g. Home Depot, Lowes, etc.).
Insert the screws through the rounded holes on the adapter (see photo above). The hex-shaped holes are for the hex nuts (see photo below).
The photos above shows how the Picatinny to Picatinny adapter should be assembled.
You install the Picatinny to Picatinny adapter onto the Picatinny rails is pretty much the same way as any other Picatinny accessories. Start by mounting the adapter to one of the Picatinny rails. The photo below shows the Picatinny to Picatinny adapter mounted to the top of a scope ring.
Next, mount the other side of the adapter to the other Picatinny rail. The photo below shows the Picatinny to Picatinny adapter mounted to a riser and a scope ring, fastening both together.
Although you can use this mount adapter on your real firearm, we have never tested it on a real firearms before. We do not know if the firearm recoil will or will not damage it. Use it with real firearms at your own risk.
The white strong and flexible plastic provides an excellent surface for painting camouflage or other color schemes. Its unpolished raw surface can be painted without any prep work. A little bit of spray paint will do the job neatly.
