    The rest is a National Match Rifle Support.
    Not sure if the gent who makes them is still around. He used to have a website, and I think it's been taken down. His name is Jim Owens. He used to hang out here, and AR.

    The black wheel is a windage adjustment. The 4 smaller black knobs are to level the support. There's a level bubble on the front, and the long screw sticking out, is an attachment that clamps the rest down to the bench, and allows you to shoot high recoil rifles one handed if you like. Almost zero recoil.
    The velcro strap, keeps the barrel from whipping.
    The bigger silver wheel allows for elevation.

    It's an amazing rest!!
    I like to use it for load development, scope sight in, etc. (Or if I dont want a sore shoulder.)

    It wont make you a better shooter, but it will let you find out how accurate your rifle/load is.

    Brad, I have shot it only 3 times. Too busy with work. Will get back out this week.

    Very good accuracy so far. Might need to be bedded.

    Nice looking rifle and rest, but looks like your TV in the background has a really bad picture tube.

    I have to get in here and rib; where I can. The rifle looks excellent, but the tv looks like your last 1000 yd target. Either you have some glare distortion, or an impressive grouping on the screen.
