This is a Picatinny Rail Iphone mount, it will allow you to mount your iphone on any firearm with a picatinny style mount on it.

With this Iphone mount you will no longer miss a text or a call while you are hunting, "plinking," or just having a good ol time!

I have shown it mounted to the top of an AR-15 Reciever, it can also be mounted on the botom of pistol rails and any other type of picatinny accesory rails you can find!


  1. Print standing up with support
  2. attatch to rail, use two short setscrews (1/4-20) in the 2 holes to keep it from sliding off. the plastic should be strong enough if not over tightened.
  3. Pop phone in, it should just pop right on in
  4. Go hunting, or shooting, or something.
  5. Answer text or phone call, REMEMBER always control the direction the muzzle is facing!

I currently donot have a working printer, or an iPhone, so I can not test, sorry.

File is also in inches

File was created in Autodesk Inventor 2012

What model iPhones does this fit?

3g if i recall

looks more like a 4/4s looking at the camera flash hole and the overall squareness of it unlike the rounded back of the 3G/3GS

did You thing about Picatinny GoPro Hero mount?

Hm, this brings some ideas to mind. Using the built in accellerometers in the phone, could we then write an app for shot timing, or other statistical measurements?

I think you could also on pistols with a rail you could graph the movement of the gun while firing to improve your aim and find out if you are limp wristing it etc.

I also thought of doing a vertical mount with cross hairs for a make shift sight device, because even if you dont look at the screen straight on the cross hairs would still be pointing at the right spot.
