Howdy,
I bought this rest off a buddy who can't find a record of who he bought it from. He said that a guy made a run of about 40 of these a year or so ago. I am going to put it up for sale and I'd like to be able to say who made it.
Thanks
Jim

J.J. Jones built it in Ohio. I have one and it will shoot somewhat. I did a lot of modifications to stiffen and gain weight on this rest. I put a different top on it and with it all I shot pretty well in ARA. I would love to own an Accurest or a Pappis but I have to live with what I got. But it will shoot if you let it. I added some 12+ pounds in lead shot to the tubular construction, everywhere I could find room. I did shoot a 2400 ARA Certified target off of it and finished 31st at Nationals. PM me and I will give more details.

Sorry Jim but it cost $325 new plus shipping les than a year ago. If I sold mine today, to get a little money to buy a Pappis I'd ask $300 after the modifications.

Thanks Carp,
I did some mods that made the horizonatl and vertical adjustsments smoother. I haven't noticed a problem with the weight as it seems to stay put for me. I am trying to raise cash for a new scope.
