Call Me Impressed

by HolePunch, from United States, NY Written on November 17, 2014
Right out of the box this rest was impressive. VERY sturdy construction. I like the simplicity of it: strap it in, line it up, shot. I have only used this for .22 but I can tell it will work just as good for the .308....

Well built sighting in aid

by Longbowelk, from United States, TX Written on November 11, 2014
I have been using a homemade vise to use to sight in my rifles. This old system used 2 sand bags(handmade using blue jean leg material) set on top of the homemade wooden vise or box. This sit on top of a special cut plywood board that was 5/8" thick. This board is clamped to one of the old portable work benches. This product was easy to put together. I find the product to be well built. It did help on the shoulder when I put a sandbag on the tray. Adjusting the crosshairs utilizing the adjustment wheels was excellent. Only problem I ran into was once I had it lined up it would move as soon as I shouldered the gun. So I ended up trying to zero or reset it as it has now moved. I found this to be a little irritating. I think the problem is the front "V" is not that secure as the rounded part of the forearm of the rifle doesn't lay into the "V" just right. I tried tightening it but it didn't make it much better. The other problem I had was this new system sits higher than the other system due to the height of the 3 pegs. I didn't have another stool that I could adjust so I had to do the spread leg system to get down where I needed to be. This was tiring and uncomfortable. Finally, and this is my fault, the workhorse was not that steady with me in the odd ball position I was in. I can solve this problem by building a permanent shooting table. I was shooting a Savage Model 11 7mm 08. The gun fit good in the system. I like the system and do recommend it but you have to be a...

Very Pleased

by Lee, from United States, TN Written on September 5, 2014
I am very pleased with this gun rest. I first used a Caldwell Lead Sled last year and I was very impressed. The only issue with the sled I first used was that the main support beam for the gun was straight and interfered with the use of lever action guns and firearms that use high capacity magazines. This sled uses a curved beam that eliminates this problem. I've used this sled twice and I've had no problems, I am looking forward to spending more time using it....

Caldwell Lead Sled Solo Recoil Reducing Shooting Rest 101777

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AZ Written on January 31, 2012
The Solo was purchased to allow me to evaluate custom AR 15 barrels for use in long range matches. It is compact and was easy to assemble. Portability is excellent and does not take up a large amount of space when heading to the range.

The construction of the rest itself is excellent. All welds were well penetrated and the powder coating shows excellent coverage.

I wish I had bought this one a year ago.
Pros: Works perfectly for AR 15 rifles that need space for a magazine.
Cons: I would like to see a bit more room for more weight for the AR 10 style rifles....

AR-15 Sighting & Shooting

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on October 30, 2011
Good rest for guns, including AR-15 type. I could remove AR-15 30 round clip when in rest with 2 inch or less 25 lb weight. Sighting: My AR-15 needed a wood block at bottom of rest where gun stock sets in the rest to accomodate a level gun. No problem with my other guns had enough rise from stock bottom to barrel rest. Would have been nice if the rest had magnetic levels but I added levels. The stock should have a holding adjustment at the stock mounting slot to maintain gun vertical position for level. The barrel hold down strap doesn't accomplish vertical hold. Shooting: With flat type 2" or less 25 lb weight worked good up to 30 caliber guns, including mags.
Pros: Good cost for AR-15 rest
Cons: Holding Gun Vertical & Weight Heigth...
