Probably the first time a rail mounted cellphone came out, people were scratching their heads. What the heck for? Aside from selfies and videos, there are a number of ballistic calculators available. And we guess you could Facebook from your rifle too.

Caldwell Shooting Supplies, a subsidiary of Battenfeld Technologies, is well known for a manner of shooting accessories. Bipods and tripods, to earpro and wind meters (and a whole lot more). They've brought out a pair of new rail mounts, and yes, one is for your cellphone.


Here's what they have to say about them:

The Caldwell® Pic Rail Smartphone Mount makes it incredibly easy to use your smartphone on any Picatinny rail. Its unique design allows you to keep your cell phone in the case so there’s no fumbling trying to remove it. Simply attach to your Picatinny rail to take photos or display ballistics calculators. Capturing unique action footage or third-person perspective shots has never been easier!

  •  Works with virtually any smartphone
  • Durable aluminum construction resists recoil from large magnums or shotguns
  • Detachable mount allows bracket to easily be removed for carrying and transportation

For someone that wants something a little more durable than a cellphone for taking a video, they also brought out a GoPro mount.

The Caldwell® Pic Rail Action Camera Mount easily attaches all action cameras to a standard Picatinny rail. Its adjustable bracket and screw allows the camera angle to be easily adjusted and locked in place for quick shot changes and steady footage. Mount your camera to your rifle with ease and capture those once in a lifetime shooting and hunting moments!

  • Includes custom, extended length Action Camera mounting screw for easy adjustment
  • Durable aluminum construction resists recoil
  • Works with GoPro® Hero, 2, 3, 3+ or 4 cameras

MSRP for the smart phone adapter is $45, and $35 for the GoPro mount.
