Main Design Features:
The Cradle – acts as a safe storage unit while it is compressed and locked down. It also doubles as a two point support cradle to help the shooter hold on zero while taking aim, ultimately delivering an excellent controlled and accurate shot.
The Strut Assist Lift – allows the operator to lift the cradle up into a shooting position, and also acts as a stabilizer to hold the popped up frame.
Swivels and Range of Motion: When the rest is in the raised position it supports the rifle to take accurate shots. The cradle is mounted on a “Double Swivel Mount” which is a steel arm that pivots in two locations – now comes in new and extended length providing a larger and smoother arc for better range of motion (compared to the original). The reason for this design is to provide excellent range from a stationary position. Meaning the shooter can remain standing or seated in one location and still enjoy an excellent range of motion (or aiming range).
Slide Lock Plate – the latest model utilizes a 4 point of contact locking plate. It is slid into position to lock up the cradle and then slid out to unlock. The plate is made of stainless steel.
Mounting Clamps and Options – the standard issue clamp is a two part clamp. It closes up on to square and round pipes from 17mm to 45mm. If the Quad Bike has no bars or pipes to mount on, you can either adapt a ply board to the front tray area in order to mount the Quad Rest standard base plate to it, or use the mounting plate as a platform to mount on to. If the pipe or bar is larger than 45mm a Mounting Plate with U Bolts is required.
