A shooting rest that can accommodate pistol grips, high capacity magazines, and has ambidextrous elevation that operates without any creep or drift represents a major advancement in varmint, bench rest, target, casual, and tactical shooting rests. As a bonus it converts to a pistol shooting rest with a simple adjustment – and without any tools! Even if you are not a Seal Team 6 or Delta Team sniper, there is nothing more discouraging than zeroing the scope on a target or varmint only to find that the front gun support is slowly moving downward, and in the process destroying a perfect sight picture and shooting solution.
According to HYSKORE® (http://www.hyskore.com) spokesman Ted Werner, “The Rapid Fire® Precision Shooting Rest is a full featured, state of the art, micro adjustable gun support system that adapts to the unique geometry of AR15 and AK47 style weapons”. The Rapid Fire® Precision Shooting Rest accommodates these modern gun platforms; and will handle everything from a Ruger 10-22 up to a model 70 in .375 H&H magnum. The Rapid Fire® Shooting Rest utilizes a revolutionary ambidextrously controlled precision elevation mechanism that incorporates linear motion bearings that glide along polished steel rails. This eliminates all creep and drift. The rest can be elevated or depressed in sub-millimeter increments by simply turning either the left or right hand elevation control. The Rapid Fire® incorporates numerous advanced features. One of the more significant ones is the ability to reduce the distance between the rear gun support platform and the elevation assembly by simply sliding the two closer together along a set of polished steel rails. By virtue of the fact that the distance between the elevation assembly and the rear gun platform can be made extremely short, the rest is also a perfect shooting platform for semi-automatic pistols and revolvers. You can comfortably shoot a Colt or Springfield Armory 1911, a Ruger Mark III, or a Walther GSP Expert Target Pistol off this rest. Whether you’re into reloading ammunition, white tail deer hunting, target shooting, plinking, or hand gun shooting, the Rapid Fire® Precision Shooting Rest will make you the envy of your shooting range or gun club. In short, the Rapid Fire® is a shooting rest with advanced features that will compliment tactical rifles and shot guns, precision target rifles, long range rifles, and handguns form a Ruger MK II to a Smith & Wesson K Frame Revolver.
The fact that the Rapid Fire® has sufficient clearance for guns with high capacity magazines and pistol grips also gives it enough relief from the shooting bench for lever and pump action rifles and shotguns; bolt action rifles like a Remington 700 or a Winchester Model 70 are, of course, fully supported. This product addresses the shortage of rests in the market that give the shooter the ability to cycle a pump action or a lever action rifle without removing the gun from the rest. The actions of both types of guns can easily be operated without disturbing the point of aim. Most shooting rests are not designed with the comfort of the shooter in mind. Typically, in order to get into a good shooting position there is some part of the rest that protrudes and irritates the shooter; and this is especially problematic for left-handed shooters. The Rapid Fire® solves this problem by employing a rear gun platform that can be located laterally in any one of five positions. This way either right or left handed shooters can develop a perfect set up so that the gun is properly supported on the rest and the shooter is comfortably supported by the shooting bench. This makes the rest perfect for long range competition shooting such as, bench rest or F class events using custom rifles or extreme range varmint hunting using a Remington model 700 in .25-06 or a Winchester model 70 in .308. This feature also makes it a great choice for firearms training for both beginning and advanced shooters. Hand gun shooters will find this characteristic perfect because it allows the shooter’s forearm to be offset to either side while maintaining a perfect point of aim. The set includes a filled, front leather rest bag, a filled rabbit ear leather rear rest bag, a magnetic bubble level, and a padded V-notch that can be used in place of the front rest bag. The rest has 4 point leveling, and there are protective rubber feet that can be placed over the points of the levelers for shooting off delicate surfaces. It is strongly recommended that ANSI approved bifocal eye protection and electronic hearing protection with adequate OSHA and NRR ratings are used at all times when in the vicinity of firearms being discharged.
