D I Y / DOOR MOUNTED RIFLE REST/ what have PW members made ?

Recommended Posts

hello,  a few years back i made one when i use to do a lot of rat shooting through the winter, it is a bit big and cumbersome and heavy but did the job ok, made of ally fits over the door with a swivel arm and swivel Yoke, i could sit in drivers seat and shoot from passenger side, my preference way of shooting, what i am thinking to do is make lighter version of same but use tubing of some sort but not plastic, maybe copper or ally, or thin walled steel  any PW made their own door rest ? will try and get some photos on here if anyone would like to see ?

hello, not realy the sort i mean as mine is on a swivel arm that reaches further inside so you do not need lean over to shoot rifle, will have to add some photos i think

the magnets were not that good kept slipping and didn't sit right on door so went back to old system of a cash bag from bank with some rice in ( not filled only half full )

this sits nicely between wing mirror and door does the job OK

I’m in the process of making one of these to try.

Suction pad was about a tenner which should be the most expensive part!
