Introducing Rapido Front Metal Jacket. 

Developed for people who like to build a definite professional looking anamorphic lens with Rapido FVD-16A, Rectilux HardCoreDNA or SLRMagic Rangefinder. Customized engraving service is available, so you can put focal length & T stop engraving on the jacket, like real cinema anamorphic lens does.

  • Add part 0030 for customized engraving service, and send email to, we will send you engraving instructions, usually a week lead time for customized engraving. See examples of recent customized engraving designs over HERE
  • Additional rail support bracket (with three 1/4-20 mounting points) is also available as  Part 0025
  • Rapido FMJ requires Rapido V2 or V3 clamp to function properly. Be sure to check the difference between Rapido V3 clamp vs. Rapido V2 Clamp
  • If your anamorphic lens is not supported, but you still want to use front metal jacket, please contact us at
  • Each FMJ will be customized to individual scope & the clamp used to mount the scope. FMJ for V2 clamp can't be reused with V3 clamp, cause V3 is longer than V2.
