Is this for a 08/15 type Maxim or would one fit on this type tripod.

It is not designed for the 08/15. I read years ago that guys were buying and using these for there 08/15s. Not sure if they fit without modification however. That might be a good question for one of the discussion forums. I have an 08/15 for sale. You might want to take a look at the tripod set up I made for it.

guys, no problem putting an 08/15 on the 08 adapter for the front, you will need to shim it with leather because of the diam diff.  the rear attachment presents a problem, as the sliding adapter is not present for the T+E. to my knowledge nobody has repo'd them and originals when found will bring more than$400 and fabbing one that will stay on is a bigger challenge  GOOD LUCK!  mike
