Abstract:
The bow Die-Namic-Dot scope mount is a device to rigidly attach a red dot scope with a standard dovetail base to a conventional bow, commonly used to shoot arrows. Henceforth, this device shall be called a Die-Namic-Dot scope mount. With this Die-Namic-Dot scope mount one can make all the necessary adjustments, elevation, right and left, axial in the horizontal and vertical planes. This scope mount has all the adjustments required to bring the image in the human eye, the red dot of the scope, and the flight of the arrow all to the same focal point at a given distance. The above adjustments are all made with a base plate, rod holder, rod and a set of dovetail clamps. The base plate mounts to the bow with two screws that allows for vertical adjustment of the scope. The rod holder is rigidly fastened to the base plate. The rod is clamped by the rod holder in a manner that allows for the red dot scope to be moved from right to left and axially in a vertical and horizontal plain The two dovetail clamps hold the dovetail base of the red dot scope to the rod. A single screw that is located between two pressure points accomplishes the clamping action. One pressure point is on the rod and the other pressure point is on the dovetail of the red dot scope. This acts as a bridge clamp, holding the scope rigidly to the rod. The single screw acts as a pivot point and allows an axial movement of the scope in a horizontal plan. The rod rotating in the rod holder allows the red dot scope to be moved in an axial motion on a vertical plain. All the adjustments described are required to properly sight in a red dot scope on a bow regardless of where your anchor point is.

Claims:
1. I have a device for attaching a red dot scope with a standard dove tail base to a conventional archery bow commonly used to shoot arrows; Henceforth, this device shall be called a Die-Namic-Dot scope mount, comprising of a flat base plate which is attached to the bow with two mounting screws. Said bow has two threaded holes at a standard distance common on the side of most archery bows. At one end of said flat base plate there is a round hole to accept one of the two said mounting screws. Henceforth the screw in the said round hole shall be called a pivot screw. The second of the two said mounting screws has a slot, which is on a radius. Henceforth this screw shall be called the adjuster screw. The center of said radius is the center of said pivot screw; the length of the said radius is the same as the standard distance between threaded holes common on most bows. The said flat base plate being attached to the bow by means of said pivot screw and said adjuster screw allows for rotational movement of said flat base plate on the axis of said pivot screw.

2. A Die-Namic-Dot scope mount according to claim 1, Wherein flat base plate has a said round hole is for said pivot screw and said radius slot for adjuster screw. The rotational movement of said flat base plate on the said pivot screw will move said red dot scope in a vertical plane. In addition to said round hole and said radius slot at one end of said flat base plate there are two round screw holes with c-sinks on the opposite end of said flat base plate.

3. A Die-Namic-Dot scope mount according to claim 2, Wherein said flat base plate has two round holes with counter sinks for flat head socket cap screws to secure a rod clamp block to said flat base plate. Said rod clamp block has two threaded holes to accept the two said mounting screws. Parallel to said traded holes and perpendicular to said flat base plate there is a round hole through the rod clamp block. In addition to said round through hole-there is a slot parallel to said round through hole from the outside edge of said rod clamp block and intersecting said round through hole for its entire length. In addition to said round through hole, there is a screw hole perpendicular to said round through hole ad said intersecting slot. The said screw hole is located between said outside edge of said rod clamp block and said round through hole. In one side of said slot, the said screw hole has a counter sink and is larger in diameter then the said screw. In the other side of said slot the hole is threaded to accept said screw. By inserting said screw through larger hole in one side of slot and threading the said screw into the threaded side of said slot, one can draw the sides of the said slot together thus making the diameter of said round through hole smaller. This clamping action holds a round rod in the said rod clamp block.

4. A Die-Namic-Dot scope mount according to claim 3, Wherein said round rod located in said round slotted through hole of clamp block. With said clamp block screw loose said round rod can rotate and slide to the right or left giving the red dot scope, rotational and right and left adjustment on a vertical plain. With said clamp block tight. There is substantial friction between the said round rod and the said clamp block thus holding the round rod securely. The said round rod has a round body throughout accept for one end, which has a flat area central to said round body. The flat area has a round hole through it, centrally located and perpendicular to said flat area. Said flat area adjacent to the said round body is a radius. The center of the radius coincides with the center of said hole in said flat area. The said radius is equal to the radius of the said round body of said rod. In addition the said flat areas retain two dovetail clamps held with a screw going through the said hole in the said flat area

5. A Die-Namic-Dot scope mount according to claim 4, Wherein the two said dove tail clamps have a radius on one end equal to the radius in said rod and a raised step at the radius edge.

Said dove tail clamps are held in place by a screw going through the hole in one said dove tail clamp and said rod and into the threaded hole of the second said clamp allowing the said dove tail clamps to pivot on the screw. The said dove tail clamp on each side of said flat area grip the standard dove tail base of the said red dot scope from each side with the screw acting as the pivot point thus giving the red dot scope axial adjustment on a horizontal plane. With the tightening of the said screw we create a bridge clamp that holds the said red dot scope firmly to the said rod.

6. I claim an adjustable mount for mounting a red dot scope to a bow giving adjustments of the red dot scope in the horizontal plane, right, left and axial directions by means of said fixed rod holder and said moveable round rod. Also adjustment of the said red dot scope in the vertical plane, up, down and axial directions by means said pivot screw and said adjuster screw in slotted flat base plate, said rod holder and pivoting dove tail clamps.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

This invention relates generally to the mounting of a red dot scope with a standard dove tail base to a archery bow and in particular to simplified and improved adjustments of the red dot scope. The novel adjustments of the Die-Namic-Dot scope mount allowing for the red dot scope to be adjusted vertically, horizontal, and axial (i.e., in a plane generally perpendicular to the bow).

Bow hunters and target shooters typically use peep and pin sights when hunting game or target shooting. When using these aiming devices, a person comes to full draw of the bow, looks through the hole of the doughnut shaped device, (peep) and then lines it up with the pin and places the pin on the object with the intent of hitting the object with the arrow. To make all the adjustments of the peep, pin, and anchor point at full draw of the bow requires a vast amount of knowledge of the equipment and repetitive shooting to make all the vertical and horizontal adjustments required to attain accurate placement of the arrow.

The placement of the arrow, because of the many types of peep and pin sights available and the human factors involved, require hours of practice to achieve consistent accuracy. Some of the human factors include an inconsistent anchor point of the arrow and the canting, tilting, and twisting of the bow in the archers grip. Conventional sighting devices do not solve these problems. There is a need for a sighting device that will allow a person to become proficient with the bow with much less practice. Archers continually try to improve accuracy of aim to take advantage of the high tech compound bows. Archers will welcome an easily adjustable and consistently accurate aiming device.

There is a need for a sighting device that will allow one to become proficient with the bow with out the continual practice. Archers have long been investigating means of improving their accuracy of aim to take advantage of the modem compound bows and are seeking an aiming device easily adjustable and consistently accurate.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF INVENTION

The invention is a mounting apparatus to attach a red dot scope with a dovetail base to an archery bow. The mounting apparatus comprising of a flat base plate with a pivot screw hole and radius slot for the adjuster screw to attach the flat base plate to the side of the bow in a vertical position. Two threaded holes are provided for the pivot screw and adjuster screw on the side of most bows. The two screws allow for locking and releasing the flat base plate for rotation on the pivot screw for vertical adjustment of the red dot scope. Included and attached to the flat base plate by means of (2) two flat head socket head cap screws is a rod clamp block with a through hole and an intersecting slot from the outside edge of the rod clamp. The hole on one side of the slot is a clearance hole for a screw. The hole on the opposite side of the slot is threaded to accept the same screw. This screw through a clamping action will lock or release the round rod that goes through the round hole in the clamp block giving the red dot scope lineal and axial adjustment on the longitudinal axis of the round rod. The round rod has a flat area on one end with a radius on one side. The radius is equal to the radius of the rod and a hole through the flat area on the center of the radius in order that the two opposing dovetail clamps can be attached to the rod. Each dovetail clamp has a radius on one end with a raised step at the edge of the radius. The radius is equal to the radius of the rod. The clamp block has a dovetail shaped groove running the width of the clamp and parallel to the end of the clamp. One clamp has a thread hole perpendicular to the dovetail and its center on the center of the radius. The second clamp has a clearance hole perpendicular to the dovetail with its center also on the center of its radius for a common screw which goes through the dovetail clamp, extends through the hole in the flat area of the rod, and is then threaded into the second dovetail clamp. The dovetail base of the red dot scope is held between the two dovetail clamps in their dovetailed grooves. The screw now can lock or release the red dot scope for rotational motion on the axis of the screw.

The invention provides a mounting for a red dot scope with all the adjustments that place the focal point of the archers eye, the red dot centered in the lens of the red dot scope, and the intended target on the a converging point of the flight of the arrow at a given distance. The navel idea of the Die-Namic-Dot -scope mount will increase archers' arrow placement accuracy because of unique ability to adjust on a vertical plane, longitudinally and axially on a horizontal plane, and axially on a vertical plane.
