Because many forms of bench rest competition do not allow one-piece rests, and some shooters prefer a two-piece set up, we make a very fine and feature laden front rest, the Model 1,200.
Starting at the bottom, each of its three legs rests on a steel point that has a lockable adjustment for height, so that the rest can be accurately leveled using the bullseye level that is built into the rear leg.
The bag height adjustment has two stages, with the primarily one being of the sliding sleeve type, with its own locking knob, and within that the usual threaded rod and wheel. The Wheel is five inches in diameter with a square notched edge, and sits on a roller thrust bearing. This secondary height adjustment has its own conveniently located locking knob.
The bag holder incorporates a unique windage adjustment that allows the its top half to be easily switched out so that multiple bags can be used on the same rest with little delay (a feature shared with the Model 1,000 LP). The bag side tension adjustments are the same as the one-piece rests.
Because they are so commonly used in competition, this rest has a very well designed, highly adjustable for-end stop (optional on some of the other rests). Sturdier than the usual single bar designs, its dual bars provide more strength and stability than single rod designs, and unlike some of the cheaper and less well thought out designs, the stop is adjustable for height, so that it can quickly be adjusted for use with a wide variety of stock designs.
