Rifle Info & Bracket FAQs
Should I get an extra 12-gauge quick-release bracket?
No, you only need one per ShotKam. The camera stays firmly attached inside the bottom of the bracket, then the top of the bracket opens like a claw to clamp onto your shotgun barrel. The mount does not stay attached onto the barrel, so you only need one 12-gauge quick-release bracket per ShotKam Camera.
Can I mount ShotKam to my rifle?
Yes, the ShotKam can be mounted to most rifles using our sub-gauge brackets. They are $79 USD each. Please see below for a complete compatibility list:

Do you have a bracket for a 10 GA, 16 GA, or 20 GA Side-by-Side?
10 Gauge: Yes, your 10 GA shotgun will fit with our 12 Gauge Quick-Release Bracket, so you would not need an additional mount.
16 Gauge: Yes, your 16 GA shotgun will fit with our 12 Gauge Quick-Release Bracket, so you would not need an additional mount. Occasionally, the 16-gauge barrel may require adding an additional bracket pad. We include a free extra bracket pad in the "spare parts bag" that comes with each purchase, so if needed, you would be able to use that pad to make the 12-gauge just slightly smaller. With that said, the 12 Gauge Quick-Release Bracket typically works perfectly on a 10 GA, 12 GA, and 16 GA.
20 Gauge Side-By-Side: Yes, the ShotKam can be mounted to a 20 Gauge side-by-side shotgun. We only sell the 12 GA side-by-side on our website, but we can customize it for a 20 GA side-by-side barrel shotgun. We simply add an extra rubber pad to the 12 GA side-by-side mount to make it smaller for a 20 GA SxS. The price of the bracket would be $79 and we are happy to make a custom invoice for you. Please contact Support@ShotKam.com to purchase a 20 Gauge side-by-side.
Can the ShotKam be mounted onto a magazine tube?
Yes, your purchase will automatically come with a 12 Ga quick-release bracket that will fit on most magazine extension tubes. The maximum diameter of the 12-gauge bracket is 27 mm (a little over 1 inch) and this 12-gauge is our largest bracket size. If your magazine tube is under 27mm in diameter, then you can mount the ShotKam onto it.
