I like to take common things and use them for purposes that the guys who originally designed them might not have foreseen.
I was browsing around and went over to Sharp Shooter Supply to look at stocks, and lo! What to my wondering eye should appear?
That thing under the front of the rifle is a slightly modified automotive scissor-jack. Mounted on a good piece of 2X6 is ought to make a dandy front rest for bench work.
So, today while I was rumbling around, I found a scrap piece of 2X6, and went to a construction site where I scrounged a piece of purlin to weld to the top to hold the front bag. Then, I went to a pawn shop and paid $9.00 for a used scissor jack.
In a couple of weeks, I'll show y'all my new front rest.
