Well I had a really hard time deciding how many stars to give this. I reload all of my own ammo for both .40cal and .223/5.56. Whenever I work up a new load, I like to obviously see which set of loads per grain count is the most accurate. I usually load 5 rounds of each grain count for ladder testing. When it comes to accuracy, there can be a lot of determining factors. The biggest is shooter's error most of the time, whether it be pulling, pushing, slapping the trigger, anticipation, etc. The one thing that can take out almost all of the shooter's error is a good quality bench rest. Once you know which load is the most accurate, you can really crank em out and then it is all on the shooter from a standing position.

That is the whole reason I purchased this stand. It did work really well for my Ar-15's. However it did not work well for my Glock 22(full size) or my Sig P226(full size). The recoil would just push the gun way back and even move the stand. There was no way to get a consistent shot group with this happening. Now I don't know about other handguns but I can tell you how it worked with these two. Revolvers might be a different story but I cannot confirm that as I don't own any revolvers.

Conclusion: For the price, and if you are only using it for rifle, it is a pretty darn good stand. It is really easy to assemble, and has a good adjustment for the front sights. If you are planning on getting this for a handgun, I suggest you look elsewhere. It did not meet my needs but I will keep it anyways for my rifle.

I was looking for a basic rest to sight in rifles and pistols. This little rest fits the bill perfectly. It's plastic, so it's light. I was worried that it might be easy to break but so far there's been no problem. It's light, so it's easy to pack along with the rest of the range stuff. It has rubber feet, so it doesn't slip even when a 30-06 is fired off of it. It's tough to fire the little .380's from the rest, but the design of the rest allows you to put a small sandbag or beanbag in the middle and shoot the little guns from there.

The rest comes dissasembled, which surprised me a bit, but it was easy to put together. The Amazon price was about five dollars cheaper than what I could get the rest for locally. If you're looking for a light, inexpensive rest to sight in or bench rest guns on, this little rest does the job just fine.

I bought this stand from Bass Pro Shops and walked out with a nice and good priced rifle/handgun rest. I wish I would've bought it via Amazon though, I could've saved a little money!!!

The reason I bought this was to sight in a Ruger .44 Super RedHawk with 9.5" barrel. This stand worked great in sighting my gun in on windage and elevation.

The stand is stable and slip resistant with its 4 rubber feet. The Rubber barrel rest is also stable and secure, and hugged the barrel of the gun nicely while I sighted it in. The adjustable height mechanism worked fair enough, and I was able to lock it in easily to get my gun to rest comfortably on the stand, both on the butt rest and the barrel rest.

This stand is light, strong, cool looking, and does the job nicely. This stand is also much easier to lug around than a sandbag type gun rest.

I am completely satisfied with this stand, more than I thought I would be. Next I will sight in a .243 rifle, and update this review when I get the chance.

Thanks MTM for producing a nice product, while making it sturdy yet easily portable. Assembly was a breeze, nothing to complain about there.

One note -- There was a piece of plastic left over, sort of a u-shaped piece that looks as if it fits in somewhere on the stand, but we couldn't find out where it belonged, and there was no description of it on the parts list. It looks like it is used for something, we're just not sure what it is for. If anyone knows what I am talking about, let me know.

By the way, my wife can't wait to use it to sight in some guns and she can't wait to shoot the .44 Ruger.

Thanks again.

To be honest I was not expecting a lot from this product given the price point and that it was all plastic. It peaked my intrest enough to buy it. WOW am I happy.
I give MTM the KISS award (Keep it simple stupid). This rest is perfect for both rifle and pistol.
Simple Elegant engineering. Works Great and I don't have to carry 20 lbs. of stuff to the range when I shoot. I only shoot light rim fire rifle and pistol so I don't know how it would fare with bigger guns.
For me it's perfect. The rubberized legs hold the table and the rest does not move around while shooting. It's great for lining up My Henry Rifle and Perfect with my Ruger MK lll Target pistol.
While doing the some assembly required part I watched the simple quality in design and workmanship unfold. I must also add I got some extra pride when I looked underneath and saw the made in USA stamp.
It's not a compitition rest but for what I do it just works.

Haven't had any issues with this rest with everything up to a full size AR-15. It doesn't move easily thanks to the feet and everyone that has shot on it seems to like it as well.

For the price and weight, I think this is really a bargain.

Though this is labelled as a front rifle rest, it is a great handgun rest too. While your gun may or may not stand alone on the rest, you will be holding the gun while shooting anyway. This makes precision shooting and zeroing a scope or sight a breeze. It is very adjustable and simple to operate.

I was looking at the high end rifle rests until I ran into this one. In my opinion this simple rest is all anyone would need. It is amazingly stable. Now I regularly shoot .5 MOA at a hundred yards with my M1A.

This is not a heavy duty piece of equipment, but it works great for my purposes. At least five people have used my rest to sight in 15-20 handguns. The feet on the base make it very stable and the guns remain steady. My firearms are holding zero so I only used the rest a few times as my friends and I tested all our sights. It was consistent and everyone loved it. Worked for everything from compact 9mm to 6" .357 magnums to AR15 rifles.

I was not expecting the quality I got for the price. This rifle rest is very lightweight which I appreciate when packing it to go to the range. It fits right on top of my range case and fits well on shooting platform at my local indoor range. Very versital and adjust high enough when using rifles with 20 round maqs. I highly recomend this rest.
