Roland said that feedback led to the development of the newest version of the X-Rest, the AR-Rest and AR-Rest LIGHTWEIGHT. Both versions are lightweight and place the stock of the supported rifle approximately 9.5 inches from the top of the shooting surface, allowing proper clearance for firearms with high-capacity magazines.
