The Enhanced Rifle Master® has been redesigned to give maximum stability when shooting the very heavy .50 BMG rifles. Portions are manufactured from a grade of cast iron specifically chosen for its resistance to vibration transmission. The base includes an instrument-grade level so the Rifle Master can be leveled precisely to compensate for bench variations. Everything is designed to bring the .50 BMG rifle enthusiast a tool for testing and shooting that is portable, accurate, and simple.
The Rifle Master® Rear Rest was introduced in 1999. It provides a stable and tri-dimensionally adjustable rear rest for the .50 BMG rifles. It was designed to be used in conjunction with the Enhanced Rifle Master. For stability, the base is made from harmonically-dead cast iron, chosen specifically for its resistance to viration transmissions. The rear rest is adjustable in height with the elevation screws which are locked in position with lock rings. Windage adjustments are made using the windage adjustable bag plate. Everything was designed and refined in conjunction with champion .50 BMG shooters, with the intention of bringing the most accurate, stable and user-friendly rear rest to the .50 BMG Rifle Shooter.
