    I bought a Saber Tactical bag rider for my Impact so that when I shoot off the bench I can use a rear bag more comfortably. When I went to install the bag rider with my Anarchy Outdoors pistol grip, I didn’t like the way the supplied Saber Tactical aluminum rod stuck out the back of the grip. So, instead of mounting it that way, I cut a slot in the rear of my grip and just wedged the front of the aluminum bar into the grip. I had to bend the aluminum bar to get it to work and when it was all said and done, it was too low and I didn’t like it. Saber Tactical makes a good product, I didn’t like the way it turned out after I altered it. My fault!

     So, I went and bought some 3/4”x1/8” aluminum and made my own. Same concept but I bent this one from scratch to fit the way I wanted. This was the first one I made…I like that it sits higher and the rear acts like a third leg when used without a bag, but the bend at the rear didn’t look right so I made another one that is better looking. It bends to the rear and then straight down and then angles straight up to the back of the grip. I’ll take some pictures tomorrow, it’s too late tonight. This is the first version, the second just looks a lot cleaner. Have a great evening. Stoti

    I posted a picture of the newest, best version on the bottom, the last two pictures.

    So then a prototype a second version and you got it right on the third.  Why does that sound familiar?  Maybe cuz I go through the same exact thing every time I build something.

    Looks like it is going to be a great mod in the end.  That's not to say it does not look good the way it is.

    I did a pretty nice mono pod thing but as of late I can see that a bag rider is simpler and easier to use as well. So it would be faster and better in competitions.

    Yeah, I had the monopod from Kraford and Lypt, a single, small point touching the bench at the rear of the gun just isn’t very stable and makes it really hard to use a rear bag. I made a few modifications, like the one shown, but they still weren’t very stable. Better than nothing but I finally bit the bullet and bought/made a bag rider. It’s much, much more stable!

    Looks good, Stoti. Something else looks different, though. Did you re paint some parts or just touch up?
