    Is there a gun Vise that I can use to shoot a rifle without me holding it at all?

    Do you mean like putting a string around the trigger and pulling that?

    What exactly are you trying to do?

    What ya shooten? A lot of recoil could blow the stock out if the energy doesn't have a cushion to push back on.

    You are looking for a lead sled.

    I occasionally use this. It is only for .22 and maybe a .223. I haven't actually tried it in .223. I can stand to the side of the gun to shoot it. I use it to test the true accuracy of the gun and take the human element out of it. It can be bolted to a wood table with 3/8-16 bolts. I made this myself a few years ago.

    It would be for a mosin rifle. I'm guessing I will need to build a vise to hold it

    If you're going to clamp a Mosin in a vice you should probably expect a cracked stock. That gun has too much recoil to clamp down.

    I was thinking a vise that holds the rifle by its side and lets it recoil back into a cushion.
