I have a friend that has a tool shop who makes a rest that far surpasses any thing I've ever seen. No tube, all solid bar stock. Very precision, ultra fine windage and elevation adjustments, as solid as a rock in every way.If anything will return to battery this will. He will build you one for about what you want to pay. There are less than 5 in existance but if I could afford one I would own one. Contact Rob Gornal at DieHard tool. Phone 814-451-0964. He also invented the Redi shooter. If you get one you won't regret it.

To me, "bench rest" is more a game of equipment than marksmanship.
You'll never know how wrong this is until you shoot a BR match. At any match, all of the guns there are capable of shooting perfect scores. The rests are right, the gun is right, and the load is right. The difference is the conditions. The breeze blows, the mirage is a bear, the wind shifts, every one of these things affects the POI. The group I shoot with shoots score, one bullet per bull sans the sighter. One shooter shoots great on a bad mirage day. Another shoots better is rotten winds, some do better on rainy, low-vis days.

My late father-in-law, who was a part of BR shooting for 40+ years, said many, many times, "If this game could be won with money, I would not stand a chance." He was a National Champion twice.

I normally just use my range bag. Take it coyote hunting, pack up calls, ammo, mat, water. Unload and set up it works fine. I also use bi-pods, but when on a berm... lower position, the bag works great.

Rookies!!!

Edit, A few guys I know use the legs from old jeans/ canvas pants sewn up and filled w/ corn media. Can't get much cheaper!!! Why always think high tech/ more $$$$, it does not really work better!!
Do not use a range bag. A friend used my range bag as a front rest while sighting in a new sight on his AR. He had the rifle back a little bit and didn't see that the zipper was up, in front of the muzzle. Now, my nice Dillon range bag will not close because a bullet went throught the zipper.

Default Front rests

The R.W. Hart rest is similar to the Sinclair. I think the Sinclair looks a little nicer though.

The Randolph Machine rest is reported to be really nice...a little over $550 but should be worth it
Front Rest

The JJ (JJ Loh) Industries rest is a really nice one as well. Over $550, look for a used one.

Farley ($$$) and SEB ($$) both make nice Co-Axial rests. SEB has a new model now.
SEB NEO Co-Axial Front Rest within AccurateShooter.com
::: SEB ( Coaxial Front ) REST :::
intro



Spend the money, get a good quality rest, you won't miss the money once you've shot off one.

Only handy photo's I have of one of mine...(about 3x what you're lookin' to spend though)

Just placed an order for a cowan rest. The guy has his machine students make them as part of their college course. The price $250 and everyone I know that has one loves them. I would much rather support AMERICANS learning a trade over some crack addict Phillipine kid.

I should get it some time in November
