OK, I'm not too lucky these days.

I was able to buy what I thought was an unmarked HK Loga System Garbini tripod, but it turns out that there is an "extension" under the "cradle" which the HK Garbinis don't have, and it doesn't fit into the tripod section in the case. It is obviously a very high-quality product but....it doesn't fit the HK Tripod pattern/profile, and it was still expensive. BTW, I think the added height is actually beneficial, but....

Any ideas? Any guesses, conjecture? Seen one before?

See pic of FireGS's tripod, then pics of the "mystery" tripod. Any ideas as to what rifle this was issued with? Anybody have any further info sources on Loga System? A Google brings up a software company, and then the HKPRO site.

The top is removable by squeezing the button on the top of the base, but I don't know how to remove the "rack" from the rack & pinion base----I can elevate it all the way up, but there seems to be some sort of stop internally.

It won't raise all the way out because if you look carefully at the end of the rack, the grooves get progressively shallower right at the end, and there are no grooves at all where the last 2 or 3 would be. Let me look at my model, I reverse-engineered one of the HK ones a while back. I think you have to pull the pinion out, then the rack will pull fully out.

Animation 3d modeling Machine gun Games Look at the groove in the pinion. There's a set screw that is inserted from the bottom that fits into a groove on the pinion. Remove that screw, then the pinion will pull out. Then you can fully remove the rack. You can also see the bottom few grooves that are missing in the rack. The screws to attach the rack to the cradle are I think under the rubber if I remember.

BTT---- Anybody have an idea what rifle this was offered with? I'm thinking some version of the SIG AMT, but I don't really know.

Once again, I guess they were way ahead of the times with the t-rail adapter on a tripod

I am uploading some pictures ( If I can make it work) of the tripod that came with my Very early PSG-1 and the rail attachment. Notice the serial # on bottom.
I suspect that these were early production or prototypes.

@HK-93, is it a Weaver Rail attachment?

No it goes into a T Rail on the bottom of the handguard on the PSG-1 much like a "Freeland" or "Anschutz" rail.
The sling also comes with a sling adapter that uses the same T-Rail

Thanks For your Interest H&K-93

Hmmm.....when I get the chance, I'll have to check. I also have a rail adapter, as well as a Harris Bipod that came with my D-prefix PSG-1, which is a similarly early piece.

H&K-93, thanks much for the photos. I'll follow up and post back to the group....this may be important HK info not previously come to light.I was not aware of any tripod prototype.

Again, I ask, does anybody know of any other European "Sniper Rifle" that had a Garbini tripod as an accessory? Just curious.

Holy Cow! My tripod's serial# is.... 272! My PSG1 is D O 109

Some SIG Sniper rifles were also issued with the Loga Tripod to the best of my knowledge.

299014

Translation: SIG Loga weapon stand. Made for the SIG sniper rifles, can be used as a double or triple. U-shaped, rubberized weapon support, height adjustment via rack with crank drive, can be swiveled to the side. In a blue fabric sheath. # 533 Like new condition

Hope that helps.
