It is kind of dumb to review an item not actually used yet. However, knowing I'll forget I want to give at least a considered first impression. I have gone over it inch by inch. As an instructor and amateur gunsmith with career vocations in various areas of engineering as well as having used and owned several similarly purposed rifle rests, I can say that at the price point even within broader price ranging you'll be very hard-pressed to find a better built precision rest. The units out there with trusted familiar American names and now foreign production just ain't what they used to be. They're adequate but a tad overpriced for the current level of quality. This rest is what they used to be. Unless you move into a competition level where a four-digit$ rest is necessary to compliment your five-digit$ gun, with basic obligatory care and treatment this rest will serve and last several lifetimes.
