X-Rest.LIGHTWEIGHT


Not rated yet
No reviews.

Spend more time shooting and less time hauling equipment around.  The X-Rest.LIGHTWEIGHT is a ultralightweight and portable shooting rest for a variety of firearms from hunting rifles to shotguns to pistols and more!  The X-Rest means freedom from the heavy bench rest or bipod.  

The X-Rest.LIGHTWEIGHT gives you a very portable and lightweight rest for sighting in your rifle.  Its the ultralightweight version of our famous X-Rest.  When you finish shooting, it quickly breaks down to slip in your bag without taking much space.  The X-Rest also keeps the forestock of your rifle or shotgun approximately 6.5 inches from the top of the bench (or ground).  The parts are cut from a sheet of aluminum with a water jet to maintain their temper and strength.  Then we apply an industrial grade powder coat finish for long life.  This is heirloom quality equipment.

The idea for the X-Rest came from an afternoon when our company president, Montie Roland, was teaching his daughters to shoot.  He was carrying his equipment from the car to the firing line and thinking "there has to be a better solution that this 10 lb bench rest".  A few weeks later we had the first prototypes for the X-Rest.

A X-Rest is Born

The journey to make the X-Rest.LIGHTWEIGHT starts off at a place called ADR Hydrocut in Morrisville, NC. They cut out the body from 3/16" thick aluminum using a water jet. A water jet uses a 50,000 psi stream of water and abrasive to cut the frame of the X-Rest from the 3/16" thick 6061 aluminum. The water jet is a process that doesn't generate heat so the properties of the billet aluminum are maintained.

We then take the parts and bring them back to our shop where they are tumbled to remove any burrs. We then take the batch of X-Rests to Triangle Coatings in Raleigh, NC for powder coat. Powder coating is a process where the parts are given an electrical charge then sprayed with a dry powder that has the opposite charge. The difference in electrical charges makes the powder stick to the metal. The parts go in an oven that melts the powder, resulting in a very robust and consistent finish. This means your Montie Gear X-Rest.LIGHTWEIGHT is ready for a lifetime of use.

After the powder coating process, the stainless steel quick-release pin and it's nylon coated stainless steel lanyard are installed using a high strength Loctite to ensure the threading is secure. A high strength instant adhesive is then used to secure the EDPM rubber pads to the resting area of the X-rest.

Once all those steps are complete, your Montie Gear X-Rest.LIGHTWEIGHT is ready for decades of use. We really mean it when we designed this product for you to pass along to your grand children.
