By Smaug from USA on 2011-12-23 09:58:12

Things I liked:

Fully adjustable, light weight to carry, Made in the USA, works with rifles and pistols, sturdier than you'd think. The front and rear supports are made of hard rubber, but are still sticky enough to keep your gun from sliding around. There's a star nut on the front column that allows a lot of adjustability in height. Once I get the right height, there's a thumb screw to lock it in place. The rear support telescopes out as well, and can be locked in place with two thumb screws. The feet are rubber and are plenty sticky enough to keep the rest from sliding around. These are what makes this rest work just as well as the super heavy steel ones. There's a carrying handle on the side. Looking underneath, I saw that it is mostly hollow, but molded of thick plastic and braced appropriately.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing, it is a great value and works perfectly. If they could make one where the front "legs" fold in for less bulk during transport and storage, that would be ideal. Maybe in the next generation. Still, that will mean more hardware and a higher price, then, they may not sell as well, right?

What others should know:

If you shoot spring or gas piston guns from this, buy a beanbag for the front rest. Otherwise, it doesn't allow the front of the gun to move and ruins your accuracy. Having this crook in the front rest is really the way to go, because guns that CAN be held in place, such as PCP and pumpers are held in place, and you are only a beanbag away from having it work well for springers too. You can probably get such a bean bag from a camera shop online or maybe the craft section of a super store or hobby store.

Things I liked:

not much

Things I would have changed:

is the adhesive used to put the paddings on the rest.

What others should know:

The adhesive for the padding in the center of the rest just refuses to stay in one place. We have had to spend extra time and money fixing something that shouldn't be a big deal. When you purchase something simple like this, it shouldn't require additional work just to get it to work correctly.

    Things I liked:

    Price

    Things I would have changed:

    More adjustability for different rifles and higher tail end to hold an AR rifle with the magazine in it. The fore end cold use redesign as it does not cradle the forearm of a rifle very well.

    What others should know:

    I've had this thing for the better part of 6 years. I thought I got a good product that would work for all kinds of firearms, but it doesn't. Unfortunately, my patience is worn out. I had my Hatsan model 95 on it on the shooting table. No one around and the rifle fell out of the holder breaking the rear scope cover and the front sight assembly. I'm about ready to cut this thing to pieces. You can do better then this for a few dollars difference and believe me, you'll save yourself a lot of work doing so and expense for stock refinishing materials. My gun is all dinged up because of this shooting rest. I am extremely careful with my firearms and this was unwarranted cause. Good luck using this thing if you get one.

    Things I liked:

    Out of all the others I've bought that are junk, this one works fine, some rifles like the texan: are going to need a strap if your not also holding/aiming the gun (front heavy)

    Things I would have changed:

    Add a strap (like the one a previous post showed).

    What others should know:

    Mine was missing the front adjustment wheel but emailing the factory got me a replacement wheel for free in 2 days. Great customer service.

    Things I liked:

    Sturdy, light weight, and hit my price point... had a missing part the company is sending

    Things I would have changed:

    Add a clamp or strap so the "shooting rest" can also be used as a gun maintenance tool.

    What others should know:

    My wife had foot surgery and her boot had the perfect Velcro strap that works perfect to strap at the base. Now the rifle is stable to do maintenance and scope mounting making this a shooting and maintenance rifle rest. Went from like to love it.... Had a missing part the company is sending, one of the biggest complaints I read here at PYRAMYD and it came true, mine was the Adjustment Dial/Jam Nut.

    hard to tell , I can't use it.

    Things I would have changed:

    adjustment dial missing and the parts bag had been opened . I E-mailed the company MTM 3 times but they did not reply . I even offered to purchase one , still no reply ! The front support slides down which makes it useless !

    What others should know:

    check your parts bag before you waste your time assembling it.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing really

    What others should know:

    It's plastic so don't expect something spectacular, but in the way, it does work really well, and for a fraction of the cost of others

    Things I liked:

    Nothing, this product I would avoid like the plague. It's cheap and bear in mind the quality that goes in with that cheapness. Their quality control is at basement level. This not Pyramid Air's fault, just real lousy QC at MTM CASE-Gard. The product was shipped with 2 Part B's (front rest plate) and no Part E (Telescopic Clamp). Pyramid Air was kind enough to send another boxed unit and guess what, 2 Part B's and no Part E. Called MTM Case-Gard and their Customer Support listened to my problem as was going to send me the correct part. The package arrived but with 2 Part F's. Totally amazing the level of incompetence and very low quality assurance they have. Ordered a Caldwell Lead Sled, a name you can trust.

    Things I would have changed:

    The packaging line at MTM Case GARD should be sacked or sent back to Elementary Schools for their A,B,C's...Their Customer Support, is not much better. I'd wouldn't even advertise them and sell them from my site. Just offer a good deal on a Caldwell Lead Sled...

    What others should know:

    Avoid, Avoid, with cheapness comes such lousy quality...Pyramid Air tried their best to make it right, really a great company!! Unfortunately they had no idea it was a bad product in the two boxes they shipped to me.due to lousy QC at MTM Case-GARD...I was going to make a play on their name but with what I mentioned about them(MTM CASE-GARD) not knowing their A,B,C's...They wouldn't have understand... Again, Pyramid Air is not at fault; MTM Case-GARD is... Looks like my trash bin will be full this week, 2 MTM CASE-GARD Predator shooting rests to the dump ...

    Things I liked:

    I like the gun device and it's really got some nice features in it

    Things I would have changed:

    Things I'd like to change to be some way to hold the gun where it don't fall over when you ain't holding it cuz that's a problem every time I walk off from you it'll fall off sometimes

    What others should know:

    I wish you'd make a strap or something that would hold the gun when you're not holding it because it will come out a lot of times I've got a a bulldog 357 and a lot of times when I walk off it'll drop

  • 5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    This is the kind of shooting rest that shooters love to own and shoot with.A well thought out rest made of sturdy plastic that should last for many years of shooting enjoyment when properly taken care of.I like the way i can easily raise and lower the front rest and then lock it in place right where I want it to be.this rest has a good wide stance with 18" wide legs in the front and 6" in the back,with rubber cups that help to make this rest as solid as any rest can be. This shooting rest does require some simple assembly that I did not find any difficulty with,and I'm sure this helps in keeping this shooting rest in a more moderate price range that a shooter looking for a rest that won't hurt their wallet or purse,and can feel good and smart about their purchase. This gun shooting rest has a nice handle built onto the side for easy carry and has great looks that you can feel good about when using it at the range.

    Things I would have changed:

    I don't feel that anything would need to change for this gun rest to be any better for the price range in which i was delighted to have made in this purchase.

    What others should know:

    Do be sure to follow the simple directions included with this gun rest and your assembly will be quick,easy,fun, and enjoyable as you put it together.

    This one is for mre real frearms than small airrifles. It would not even fir my Gamo magnum .22 Swarm for zeroig. yet as a holder on my shop Maintenance and Nomad II refill spot it holds guns well. I though with all the parts it would be extremely hard to put together. opened it up and had the right directions it was together in under 10 minuts mabye five top

    Things I would have changed:

    Things I liked:

    This product is a very easy set up and fast. Works like an even more expensive rest. Very light weight and study.

    What others should know:

    PCP rifles don't fit has well as Fire Arms, but the rubber on the resting post make it possible to use for your PCP. The PCP rifles are wider than Fire Arms. I also purchased the table from another company. Table works great with the rifle rest. Pyramyd's table was on back order at the time I purchased the rifle rest.

    A deeper butt-stock holder!! My Hatsan Bull-Boss fell off of it - I caught it.

    Things I liked:

    Easy to assemble. Easy to adjust. Very light weight, which is OK for carrying, but an annoyance when shooting.

    Things I would have changed:

    Add some provision to either anchor it to any given surface, to weigh it down during use.

    Things I would have changed:

    Did not come with all the parts. Missing star shaped red plastic adjust nut to elevate front rest.

    What others should know:

    entire rest is made of plastic , but seems to be well made. Its a shame all parts were not in box.

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Easy to assemble, very lite weight. Breaks down easy and quickly without disassembly. Built in carry handle, needs no case to put it in. Sits nicely on regular card table. Very stable and easy to set up and shoot from without having to drape over it and your rifle. Can adjust rifle to target in seconds. No awkwardness here. When shooting, it does everything I need it to. Your rifle fits snuggly into your shoulder when shooting from it. Quickly allows you to change from rifle to rifle without hardly any adjustment.

    Things I would have changed:

    I like it the way it it.

    What others should know:

    Highly recommend this. Works well with your chronograph.

    Things I liked:

    Easy to assemble. Looks good! Performs exactly as one would expect.

    Things I would have changed:

    It would be nice if you could fill it with sand for extra stability.

    What others should know:

    I have not found this useful for spring piston guns. I do better with a sand bag rest for them due to springers requiring a very loose hold when shooting. However it performs admirably with my CO2 guns.
