    I built this rest several years ago using a Midway brand (Caldwell) front rest. I constructed a simple frame that allows the rest to be adjusted for different pistols.

    I use this rest mainly for load development, for which it works great. I use a set of Bull Bags to do my actual sighting in as the POI is affected by the pistol grip making contact with the rear sandbag.
