I recently inherited this equipment from my father in law along with a complete rest so this is surplus to my needs.

I only shoot off the bench a few times a year

What do you guys think this is worth used in VG condition?

Any info is appreciated.

The rest top and windage adjustment mechanism you have was sold by Sinclair in the early 1990's. The windage adjustment was used to convert a non-windage top to a windage top. If you move the windage wheel you will notice that you do not have uniform tension going both directions. There is slack when screwing out the adjustment. I have the same top with this windage adjustment. It is difficult to use for competitive benchrest. If you use a Bald Eagle or the newer Sinclair tops, you will see the difference in quality. With all that said, I would also value the windage top between $50 and $75.

The top could be a Sinclair, or, a Hoehn . .the other gizmo is a desirable Dunrud speed cam/screw, which, when properly set-up, with just a 'flip of the lever', accommodates 'instantly' moving from the sighter bull, to the same elevation on the record bull (group targets), at varying distances: a very useful tool. :cool:;) RG
