    Photos of our Fclass base-takedown

    Here are some photos of our lightweight takedown base and of course our top.


    It has both left hand and right hand adjusters for the rough adjustment. It weighs 3lbs as shown. You will need to use your leg adjusting screws and mariner wheel.

    Butch,

    Elegant design there!

    Have you made provision for washers or feet on the adjusters so they don't just bury onto the ground?

    Looks good Butch; 3 pounds including your top is pretty amazing. What is the footprint/spread of the legs? Any idea of the price point?

    Jeff,
    I should have said the base is 3lbs as shown. Our top is another 3lbs. The legs are approx. 8" from the center of the post. You will have to use your own leg screws and feet.

    T&e

    Butch,

    I'm doing a T&E shoot with several new varmints and a new 6.5 custom in August out in Minn. & ND.

    Do You have a test unit?

    I have the units in stock. Just sent 7 of our rest tops and 7 bases to the Spanish Fclass team.
