Up until today, I have only used this vise for cleaning my firearms. Today I had a new scope to mount, and the vice made it so easy. I positioned my rifle so it was perfectly level. I knew because I was using levels to mount my scope mount, and then my scope. Without the vise it would have taken me hours. But with the vise, I had it setup in thirty minutes, DONE! Its grips are all padded, so there is no scratching of your firearm. The recessed bowls are very handy, especially when you are working with small parts. It saved me so much time i also mounted my magpul grip on the lower rail. The entire vise is acid and stain resistant. It makes any job with your gun so much easier. Now that I have used it for so many things, I don't know what I would do without it. It makes cleaning your gun easy. I place a plastic bag over the end of the barrel. I clean my rifles and handguns the very same way. All the gunk gets brushed away right into the bag. And when I am done I just zip it up, and throw it away. This is the most useful investment I have ever made for caring for my guns. I highly recommend it for anyone who is a serious shooter. It will cut your time in half; no matter what kind of job you are doing. It's as if you have a second pair of hands. You will never be disappointed with this purchase!
Pros: Lightweight, Easy setup, Recesses for parts
Cons: Would be great if there was a place to keep cleaning Supplies
