I wonder if it is made in China going by the label that says 'MADE INGERMANY' I can't imagine Germans making such an obvious error.

I ordered these to hold battery but delivery a long way off,, probably 3d print off a battery carrier by looks of things,, more than likely try and build it into mount bracket.. started sketching ideas out ,,took measurements and will start cad design tomorrow,, starting with lens side,, going for C's type first

First draught of body/ dovetail The two flats opposite the dove tail will have a hole through them with a hex on one side to hold an 8mm nut in place. I will make a knob and fit a bolt in it to adjust night vision clamp tension,, This design will allow me to rotate NV to right position.
Base of dovetail will have a tripod threaded nut insert fitted as well

Few supplies arrived today ,, couple of small 6v batteries, illuminated switch and salvaged some terminals from a battery holder ,, will custom print my own battery box with room for a switch. Try and get back on cad tonight or tomorrow night and redesign bits
