HOG Saddle® MOD7

NSN 1005-01-616-2719

This is our latest model HOG Saddle® with some improvements from the original design. The MOD7 is currently a standard issue item in the U.S. Marine Corps and other various Special Operations Units.

List of improvements:

  1. Opens 1/4" wider than original model (2-5/8" Open, 1-1/2" Closed)
  2. Incorporates a retention button screw to prevent unintentional disassembly in the field
  3. Weighs Just 15.8 ounces
  4. Added cut-outs to the base of the HOG Saddle. These narrow slots better integrate with tripod heads or QR plates that have anti-rotation video pins.

HOG Saddle® MOD7 Specs:

  • CNC machined from a solid block of aluminum
  • Black oxide stainless steel bolt and guide rods, and stainless steel noise dampening tension spring
  • Hard anodized finish, for superior resistance to corrosion (a resilient surface which serves as an excellent base coat for custom camouflage paint)
  • 1/4-20 stainless steel mounting threads and 3/8-16 back up threads, with anti-rotation slots to accept tripod QD plates that have video pins
  • CNC machined torque knob assembly with retention button screw to prevent disassembly in the field (opens 1/4" wider than previous model)
  • 1/4" thick, recessed urethane pads specifically engineered to absorb rifle recoil and reduce muzzle hop
  • Weight: 15.8oz

    USMC Issue for a reason

    Hands-down best clamping head for tripod shooting. Used for 20+ lbs of rifle/optics/medium recoil applications so far. Originally planned for a MLOK plate to clip into my tripod head but the hog saddle makes the most sense--given the weight of my applications. Clamps tight, holds tight, best option for firearms. And made in USA.

    This is a very quality product. I believe it is very well worth it. The spring really enhances the action of the Hog Saddle.

    I ordered the XB52 Ball Head, Hog Saddle, Pig Tripod and these things are great! There was a lot of thought and care that went into these items. The fit and finish is top shelf. I have a Manfrotto 502 video head for my spotting scope and I feel that I could not have done better for my rifle and spotting scope support choices.
