    I typically use a combination of sand bags and commercial shooting
    pads to stable the front and rear of my guns when I sight in. I'd like
    to get something easier and quicker to adjust on the front end.

    I see there are a few models, but haven't looked hard yet. Do you
    have any brands or models in a brand that you recommend?

    I saw pics of Caldwell's Rock Deluxe, but even for $80+ dollars, it
    still looks a little cheaply made. The threads even looks to be some
    sort of polymer plastic. Maybe it doesn't make a difference, but last
    year I tried to win(eBay) a front shooting rest that was fully adjust-
    able, was an older model of some brand I don't recall now and it was
    all metal.

    I'm willing to spend $50 to $100 for an adjustable front shooting
    rest. The ones I saw in the past had 3 legs. Even if there are higher
    priced ones, I'd still like to hear about them. Yah never know.

    Do you have one you prefer or could recommend? What about it do
    you like?

    Is there something specific I should be looking for when shopping
    around for this rest?
