my Fellow Instructables. Why Go and buy a New Gun Rest? $300 $500 Dollars?

I Decided To Make One. total Cost $40 Dollars

Im Using Metal Tubing 2/3.4 inches by 1 And 28 inches Long.

Step 1: The Build Up

i Used a 28 inch long Rectangle pc of metal tubing for the body. On one end i welded a 4 inch pc Going up.

This is the Back support and i also welded two triangle Pcs For extra strength

On the bottom of the back support i pt a 1 inch long nut and a long Bolt to adjust the Back Up and Down

The Front has another Pc 5 inches Tall and two one inch long Nuts to hold the screw that makes the top move

Up And Down.

i welded a small triangle on the bottom of the front Pc For extra support.

And a 4 inch long plate that supports the Front of the gun.

But after making it it moved way to much so i changed the design

Step 2: Front Support

Found a door hinge and this worked perfect No more movement.

by moving the screw the plate moves Up And Down notice the stained wood that will hold the Foam.
