    @muzza2020,

    I'm sure that's not what she meant by "Give it a rest, Muzza!"

    I'm ashamed to say, I have a similar device, only the jack is a bottle jack and it's an old metal ironing board. Works bloody well,except for when it led to my shooting the bloody chrony.

    Good old Kiwi ingenuity at its best on display right there Muzza. On ya mate!
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I did the same thing. But I used a slide through sleeve and clamp at the Tee where the rear attaches to the scissor so that it separates into two pieces.....

    There is a washer fitted as a knob so I can adjust the height from both sides of the jack, and on the bottom leg on one side is another washer as a knob. Turning that tightens the clamp on the centre arm and allows for an adjustable length. (Some of my rifles have sling studs in different places....)
