I have a IR Defense REAP-IR and would be interested to know how some others have mounted their external battery pack. I think most people attach it to the stock in some way.

I checked the Night Vision subforum and nothing listed there on mounting battery packs.

I mounted the DVR on the stock to get it as far away from the muzzle blast as possible on my pulsar. The battery pack I mounted to the M1919 rail on the side of the scope housing. I don't know about the IR optic but I'd go on the hand guard if it uses an external DVR. I like the weight in the center some might like a little forward weight to aid in stalking. But you will find yourself shooting off of sticks or monopods. Off hand shooting gets a little tougher as weight goes up.

What do you think of mounting the battery pack to the magazine. I don't think I'd need more than 20 shots at a time.

If you need to crawl up in a stand or cross a fence then you would be removing the magazine.  Not to mention getting in and out of vehicles. It's to bad someone has not made a stock with battery pack and dvr compartments. Plus getting it forward gets the wires away from the charging handle.

Removing the mag with battery pack attached wouldn't be a problem...you just unplug the cord when doing so.

I actually have this exact pouch, and the mounting straps on the back are really bad for most stocks. You are supposed to use zip ties to attach the plastic straps to the stock, and I've looked over the possibilities and there is no good way to do it with this pouch.

The link you provided shows a pouch for a specific DVI recorder, not a battery. Do you have a similar pouch for holding batteries?

I attach it to a LT mount that attaches to the rail.

Which Larue Tactical mount are you using, they have dozens and I'm not sure which one would work with a battery pack. If you can post a pic that would be great!
