The Ultimate Shooting Rest
Caldwell’s® team of engineers has developed a series of rifle rests that incorporate their new “Fire Control®” mechanism. “Fire Control®” is an advanced alignment system that allows the shooter continual, one-hand adjustment of downrange crosshair alignment via a multi-directional control arm.
The Fire Control® mechanism allows continuous adjustment of the front forend support by manipulating the control arm with your fingertips. Once the coarse adjustments have been made to position the rest, the control arm allows fluid movement for precise crosshair alignment without having to change shooting position to loosen or tighten rest components. The end result is unmatched control of crosshair alignment in a rock solid shooting platform which delivers better accuracy than any existing rest.
Simply move the control arm in any direction to precisely align the crosshairs on your target. The rest will hold the gun perfectly steady at any point with
no additional adjustments.
60 MOA or approximately 5 feet of adjustment at 100 yards.
This revolutionary development allows accuracy and speed previously unavailable in conventional rifle rests. The continuous precision adjustment of Fire Control allows the crosshairs to easily and quickly be manipulated as the shooter maintains a perfectly relaxed shooting position. Fire Control will give you the confidence of knowing your crosshairs will be precisely aligned as the trigger breaks. Providing control right up to the point of trigger break greatly enhances accuracy potential. Rests with fixed adjustment systems require the last micro alignment to come from leaning, pushing or pulling slightly on the gun and or rest, thus greatly limiting accuracy.
Another inherent benefit to the Fire Control rests is ease and speed of realignment after recoil. No more moving the entire rest back into position or loosening knobs and turning screws to realign. With up to 60″ of windage and elevation adjustment at 100 yards, getting back on target instantly after recoil from a previous shot is at your fingertips via the control arm.
In addition to the precision alignment mechanism, these rests are built to exacting tolerances and specifications to provide the rock solid performance Caldwell is known for.
Both Shooting Rests include: Stainless Steel Leveling Feet, Forend Stop, Medium Profile Filled Front Bag and 3-lobe bag for wide forend rifles. The coarse elevation provides approximately 4″ inches of adjustment at the rest. Adjustable tension of the control arm allows for customized resistance pressure via four nylon tipped set screws.
Shooting with a Fire Control shooting rest is as easy as 1 – 2 – 3.
Step 1: Use threaded feet to raise rest off bench and to level the rest.
Step 2: Set and lock coarse elevation adjustment.
Step 3: Move control arm to align crosshairs, then fire.
