I bought a PhotoSniper setup a couple years ago and have been using the included Tair 3 300mm F4.5 Preset lens almost exclusively for my wildlife photography.

Well, I just bought a Russian 500mm mirror lens from the Ukraine and thought I'd use the photosniper stock with the lens and my Sony Nex 5n camera for a compact, 750mm equivalent focal length system.

I made a pushrod setup to work with the trigger and added a metal holder for the pushrod to hold it right over the shutter button. The trigger on the stock works great! Using the stock REALLY helps steady shots using such a long lens. I can get clear, sharp images down to 1/500 sec. with this setup.

Well here are a couple of photos.

Has the shoulder thing that goes up. Should be banned from civilian use.

Do you have a permit for that sir? Looks dangerous. Ban it for the children.

Tax stamp? Looks like an unregistered SBR to me...

Use that sling, soldier!

I wouldn't use that anywhere that has Secret Service. Someone might make a mistake.

I've used the stock with the Tair 3 and my Pentax camera quite extensively, mostly up in the mountains, but also recently at an airshow. It looks even more dangerous with the Tair 3 300mm lens but I've never had any problems using it.
