    Word of warning, it is damn near impossible to scrape off those gun city stickers

    Hi Guys, thanks for the replies. I've ordered a Tipton Best Gun Vise from Dead Eye Dicks.
    Looks like a very adjustable unit.
    DED's had the best price $186 which was $60 cheaper than anyone else I could find on the net!

    A set of rubber soft jaws can work on a normal vise as well.

    I bought the GunCity one today for 75 bucks. It does the job, but seems shitty quality (for something that is originally $150), had plastic shavings all around it. Also came with no instructions manual so had to google quite a bit and ended up using TipTon's Gun Vice manual as they are exactly the same installation. If anyone is looking at buying it, I'd say its alright at the discounted $75 price point, but not the full price.

    Treat it as a good omen or maybe they limit their sales to NZ only
