Lokking to replace my old rest w/ a new one.
I did look at the old post to no avail.
I need, a one piece, rest, for shooting .30 cal mag. rifles LR.
Makes, models, whatever...
I have looked at some good and some, not so good.
Iam willing to pay premium dollars....for the right one...sakofan... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
It's only rock and roll....But I like it!
I think the problem with most of the one piece rests, like the ones I think you're thinking about come right down to how stable they are. Most of them I have seen wobble considerably at the joint that they pivot on for elevation adjustment. One like Darryl Cassel uses is about the best I've seen for a one piece unit. The table he has is top notch too. The only thing else I'd incorperate into the rest would be a fine adjustment for windage. A bottom plate setting on another plate with a rear side adjustment screw is all it would take. Good luck.
Just an FYI..
.. My VersaRest will be available here in the not-too-distant future.. It's a one-piece that can also be adapted to a tripod for field use.. Here's a coulpa pics of the prototype.. The top is wind adjustable and the post holder will accomodate most any available top with a 3/4" post.. JiNC
..Thanks DC.. This seems to be a neat little system so far.. My biggest trouble has been trying to find a place to make them in small quantities at a decent price.. I may just end up making them all myself per someone's requirements if it didn't get outta hand.. I really dislike production work.. The one in the pic was made for light varmint rifles.. I like the idea of using the same rest for load development and field use.. I still wanna try out one of the Ultimate Tripods and/or one of those chain-drive benches you yankees are using..
