Recomend Gunvise

Hey Guys, as I get more involved with repair and maintenance of firearms I need to get another support while one rifle is on either the desk or a simple support that I have been using for a very long time.

Now I have two, three different rifles that are in different states of building, maintenance. What I want to do is get a support that I can leave one rifle and go work on another.

I looked at Tipton Best Gunvise and it has a reasonable cost. What are some of the gunvises used by the Troops. Please give me some ideas so that I can move into the 21st century.

Mine is the Midway, probably would be the same as the Tipton or Frankford Arsenal. It works fine, had it for quite a few years. Wouldn't be without one.

Thanks from MuleSkinner88

I have a CTK Precision P3 gun vise with the shooting rest attachment that I really like, it's built well and super easy to adjust and use. I also have a Tipton Best gun vise, which a lot of folks seem to use but I just never liked it nearly as much as the CTK.

I do most of my AR work using magazine vise blocks, I really like those things.

I have a older Tipton without all the adjustable points of mounting the above linked Tipton has
There are times I would find those adjustments handy
Well thought out product and still made In the US (I think)
Sorry Larry porterfield, my choice would be the Tipton Best
I just may buy one anyhow
Edit:
I just ordered one , now I can keep the old one in the shop

Thanks from MuleSkinner88

I picked up a Tipton (the fancy plastic one) wish I waited for the metal tube one that came out after I bought the plastic one.

Really happy with this one. It's seen a lot of M14s come together and still works great. Easy to take out in the shop for a steam cleaning every once in awhile to get grease an oils off.
Only negative I have seen is the round vise pads tend to come off easily. A little Gorilla 100% silicone took care of that.

nf1e - Yeah that one. I wish the lever when applied didn't flex. So not quite "best" gun vice. Like Glock being "perfection".

I think they are saying this is the best that Tipton produces, not the best of all. Simple marketing hype but it works fine for me.

I've owned the Tipton "Best Gun Vise" for years. Great product.

I've got "Tipton's Best" and Tipton's basic (rebadged by Cabelas) and they serve me well.

Have a CTK that I think is fantastic, especially for scope mounting. Hands down though , Versa Cradle is top notch. Just got done setting up some muzzle devices and the ability to get the muzzle vertical is way better than sliced bread! I have table mount option and free stand option that is mounted to a 25 pound steel plate/gym weight, then I throw 3 bags of #8 shot on the base and it gives me good opportunity to move it when I have to. Iíll try to get some pics later .
