    I may have to get one to fit my Myers rifle.

    Very nice, Bill. Any idea when production is available?

    Ben,Bruce Baer is going to build them,I will help him some,But he will not start until Jan of 2009,It will take that long to get the parts made,I also have a front top that is made by Scott Hamilton & it goes on the front for stocks witout the rails,The block on the rear is also changed ,it fits stocks also.Both peices can be changed in less than a minute. The front assembly rotates ,this will eleminate any binding when moving sideways for windage.I tested the rest the other evening,& i shot the first shot & then 9 more without looking through the scope,I did this 4 times & had a 10 shot group all four times that was small hole about the size of a dime,this was to see if it would repeat POI.I will have this rest available at shoots all the rest of this. year,if any one is interested.Wilbur,Thanks for posting the pictures. BILL

    Some questions, Why the massive rear and the complexity of the rear adjustment. And the front wheel why so large. Whats the approx. Cost and weight. And is the bunge cord a supplied part or a user supplied part.

    Anybody want to buy a like new Pappas one piece?

    Just kiddin' James, I'm more than happy.

    But if this rest had hit the market 6 months ago, well...............

    Looks like very few sharp edges to annoy a shooter.

    Awesome work Mr. Meyers. GG

    Bill,

    Correct me if I'm wrong but Bruce Baer is the gentleman who made this gun and rest. It is one of the best rest I have ever seen for a one piece.

    Pure quality for sure.

    Thanks Lynn for the info. I just seen this at another site and posted it here. The guy that posted it assumed Mr. Baer made both the gun and rest.

    Can you send me a pm on how much a rest like that cost?

    Thanks.

    And if you ever need help posting pictures if you got a camera, I'll be glad to try and help you.

    Brad

    Sorry Wilbur and Bill if I got this thread off course. I just seen the name Baer and associated it with the picture I posted.

    My apologies gentlemen.

    Bill,

    Beautiful rest. I have spent the morning polishing my Pappus rest. I'll have to keep it.

    Concho Bill
