    F Class front rest

    hi everybody, i have been running a caldwell rock with a 3inch front bag and a couple of little modifications for a few years now but am looking for something a bit more advance and solid.
    how have people on here gone about upgrading, is there anywhere in nz that stock any other types of rest. what other options actually are there?

    This is the rolls Royce of rests:
    SEB NEO Co-Axial Front Rest within AccurateShooter.com

    Will cost a bit over $500 us but I believe well worth it.
    I got myself a bald eagle. Does the job as a classic rest.

    nothing special in the way of mods, 3inch bag, redid the feet with threaded rod and some washers. maybe an important item was the nuts on the legs because by tightning them up it locks everything up. its not perfect as i just dont think it has enough weight to be truely solid.

    It could be used to mount a 25mm bushmaster chain gun on an APC
    I seen it up close.
    The highlight of the day will watching all the pissed off shooters when you drop it off to the mound with a forklift😂

    Abe, don't worry about the weight...

    On second thought, at 30kg you might need to invest in one of those 4x4 golf cart thingys to drag all your shit around the range

    A FTR guy in one of the clubs up here uses a big mother of a steel plate with teflon type material on it to put his bipod on. Every time he drops it onto the mound it's like a mini earthquake
