Bully-eye, if the legs were fat and hollow, they coul then could be filled with sand or water. That could cut down on transport weight.

For those of us who shoot from the other side of the bench...make it easy to covert the assembly to left-handed.

Like writing a list for Santa...... I love this game!
Certainly shaping as something I'd be interested in.

fuzz -- my cowan rest was around 3.5 off the deck and my hart with base plate was almos 4.5"
4.5 should work well with 3" of travel in the legs and at least that in the center post
also...stainless is good

G`Day all just a thought,I have a Wilson rest and the base is cast iron and is bloody heavy but there is no reason why the base couldn't be made out of hollow section with plugs on each section and you just add lead shot to make it to what ever weight.
I am thinking of making a new base this way for mine as when i shoot Rim-fire BR it doesn't have to be heavy.
And for F-Class just have your alloy feet to go on the pins.
Haven`t got into the F-Class as yet but is there any reason you can`t have a hole in each of the foot plates to stick a pin through so it doesn't slide on grass or whatever.

Fuzz -- no sense paying double shipping. Take pics, and send them to the moderator or myself and they will get posted, then you can send it to the winner.
