Correspondence between myself and ATN regarding this issue:
Original message to ATN: "Hi there I have the ATN PS15-WPT and wanted to find out if there is a way to connect it to a Wilcox dovetail mount for use with the Wilcox L4 G24 mount? I have been unable to find an adapter which fits the Weaver (?) mount which is attached to the PS15. Any help would be greatly appreciated as the ATN mounting options do not work with my current setup."
ATN Reply: "We would like to thank you for taking the time to reach out to us here at AtnCorp. We try to assist all our Atn customers the best we can and truly appreciate your patience. I would be glad to assist you in regards to your Atn unit. We apologize for your experience you are having as we take great pride in the quality of our products. You may need to contact Wilcox to see if they have or can produce an adapter that will work with your mount. Unfortunately we do not carry one."
Having discovered that the dimensions of the dovetail mount which is fixed to the top of the PS15 is the equivalent of a front sight dovetail on a 1911 (why???), I have been unable to find a suitable adapter. In the meantime I will use the supplied bayonet clip in conjunction with this mount (which in turn will HOPEFULLY lock into my L4 G24 Mount).
Wouldn't swapping one of the side mounts weavers to the top do it?
My first thought exactly, although ATN coats the screws with whatever black (acrylic?) stuff is used after they have been mounted, so it is impossible to unscrew them without stripping the threads.
My solution worked with a small fix:
- I removed the triangular Wilcox mount from the part I ordered (see previous post). For referecnce this is a 4mm (metric M4) thread. - I unscrewed the horrible bayonet section from the original ATN mount in order to use the (equally horrible) lower part as a mount to the PVS-15 WPT - went to a local engineering firm and had them make something roughly like this from aluminium (ignore the measurements as they were updated) which cost 15 EUR here in the EU:
- Which allowed me to mount the wilcox wedge onto this new block which in turn is mounted to the original ATN connector:
- And this mounts perfectly with the L4 G24 to my Team Wendy LTP:
I have no idea why ATN has to be so different when it comes to mounting options (as well as fix points for retention cords), but I am very happy I could make this work.

squidboy1951: I have the X-Sight II 3-14 and am looking for information on the pink haze problem I have read about on this forum. Has anyone fixed this problem? or is it a send in to ATN for repair or is it a terminal condition I should live with? not in warranty now.

osw420: Recoil Activated Video (RAV) I want to be more sensitive. I want to make the adjustment available in three sizes. It should also work well against the weakest impact of an air rifle (FX IMPACT).
