Unity Tactical Knuckl Helmet Mount As GoPro Mount

DSC_0071

I got a Unity Tactical Knuckl helmet mount so I could manage the side attachments on my helmet. The Knuckl Mount attaches to either Ops Core, Team Wendy, and Crye Precision rails. Most people utilize the Contour action camera and the Knuckl mount has a dedicated attachment point for the Contour.

I do not have a Contour camera but I do have GoPro cameras. I acquired a GoPro Hero4 Session last December when they went on sale for $199.99. I find the smaller Session camera to be very handy due to the smaller body size. Using an old GoPro rail mount I was able to position the GoPro Hero4 Session on the Knuckl mount rail and keep it as streamlined as possible.

 

Here is the mount before I installed the GoPro rail mount. The Knuckl mount is actually on a modified ball joint so you can swivel the whole mount 360 deg to adjust the angle. This works well when you are using a light, like the scoutlight I have mounted. That way you can direct the light where you want to go. In terms of using a camera, when you cheek a rifle often you will need to reposition the camera to get a better angle.

    For when you need to do operations operationally.

      Operating is serious business LOL

    Why do you have a helmet? Seriously I’m curious as to why.

    • Anonymoose

      Why don’t you?

      • Tom – UK

        Because when looking to go shooting I buy bullets, clothing, hearing protection etc. Then when given the choice of standing on a range with a helmet I decide not to wear camoflage clothing with a helmet as it comes across rather play soldier/walter mitty to me.

        I’m curious to the author’s reason to have a helmet, its not something I want to be critical of as I support the right to choose. It might be daft and pointless but so what it’s his money.

        I’m always open to over people’s points of view, so I’m curious what his is 🙂

          I could see the ability to record POV video as a valuable training tool. No safer way to see what your doing with your hands at all times after-the-fact.

        • BattleshipGrey

          I don’t wear my helmet at the range for the same reason you mentioned, plus I’m usually the only one on the range anyway. I’m in LE but bought my own helmet because even if I wasn’t in LE, there’s still the possibility that society will decay for whatever reason, and the only one that’s going to look out for you and yours is you.

          There is a lot of gray area between mall ninja and fudd. Just because someone owns a bunch of tacticool zombie crap doesn’t mean they prance around in it all the time, or that they’re out to give gun owners a bad name, or that they will eventually go out to shoot up a school or whatever. Some people collect WWII militaria, but that doesn’t make them Nazis or Communists. You don’t have to be a mallninja dweeb or a psycho to own tacticool helmets, armor carriers, machineguns, sniper rifles, or NVGs, etc, or do run ‘n guns with them on the youtubes. Now it would be bad if someone wore that stuff ALL THE TIME and acted like some kind of COD OPERATOR in public, but most people like that don’t actually own real guns or non-replica gear (because their mom won’t let them).

      Because that’s where your brain is located? For some people, that’s the most valuable part of their body and bumping your head can very easily and very seriously injure it? Just a guess though…

      This is a left over from my Airsofting days. I don’t really use it that much. But I am interested in gear and DIY POV GoPro mounts.

  • thedonn007

    How quickly do these mounts attach and detach?

  • Kwong

    I wonder how this compares to the GoPro NVG mount.
