I know this was covered recently but I can not find the thread. I want to put a dovetail adapter on a RHNO II so I can use a Norotos dual dovetail mount that I already have. I tried to do my homework. I just need confirmation. Is this part from TNVC the right part?

"Norotos PVS-15/PVS-18 Socket for AKA2 Mount" for $54

Yep, I just converted mine this week. Works great. Way better feeling than the j arm.

I mangled the little roll pin....not sure how to get it out without messing it up. A drop of oil finally helped get it out...but the top was all pinched to hell.

Just did the mod last night, mangled the roll pin a bit but works like a charm.

I remember in the old thread someone mentioned filling the roll pin with the shank of a drill bit when they removed it. I did not have a drill bit that fit the ID of the roll pin very well but the drill bit that I used looks like it saved the pin enough to reuse it. I plan to just clean the edge a bit and stab the ugly end back in the hole. If I had a better fitting filler I bet it would have saved it even more.

Do you mean this: https://tnvc.com/shop/norotos-rhno-ii-dovetail-nvg-mount-assembly/

I don't have any Wilcox dovetail stuff but I heard that Wilcox and Norotos parts don't always mix and match well so I would use a Norotos dovetail with it.

By the time I'm done converting I should be $90 in the hole instead of $329 plus shipping.
