    I'm interested in a decent gun vice and looking for advice. It would mostly be used with an Impact X. Earnest Rowe has one that looks really good, but it's not available at Midway, Brownell's etc.

    I saw another, Tipton Ultra, something that would be usable for maintenance as well as shooting would be ideal.

    Caldwell and Tipton are about it.  I don’t know of one that’s good at both shooting and cleaning

    I have used this Gun vise for a year or so now and i love it! There is no noticeable rust after leaving it outside in the backporch. Georgia airguns recommended it to me:

    That is the exact same one that I bought a cuppla years ago.  Works very well and can be used to work on you rifle, I do it all the time, especially when mounting scopes.

    Looks like it's built strong. For air rifles, does that stock vice hold it tight enough to keep it zeroed?

    I am also an advocate for the CTK Precision P3 Ultimate Gun Vise For maintenance and also precision shooting, it's a winner! A very solid vice with lots of adjustable features. Here's a YouTube link:

    I have the same one as in the OP's picture, although mine has a micro adjustable rear bag.

    It's very well made.

    The rear clamping piece looks custom made and a nice idea.

    I got mine from targetshooting.com.

    Cosmic I just got this last week, can't beat it for the money. Good cleaning and setup station. Although I shoot off of bags this should work OK also. Guess if I really wanted to get serious I'd dig out the Slingshot and leaded rear bag.

    It does, that's the reason that I bought it, for scope mounting.  I use it to set up the Burris Signature Mounts with the adjustable inserts.

    Thanks for all the help. I ended up going for a Caldwell Lead Sled DFT 2. It doesn't have stock clamps but it does have what looks like pretty good windage and elevation adjustments. Price wise it's similar to the others and it can go back to Basspro if it's a disaster.

    I own the Tipton Best gun vice, but 980’s Varminter rifle rest by Outers. It’s miunted securely on my work bench with wing nuts, so I could easily pull it off for bench shooting. I added the padded vice to the rear when I bought it. I’ve mounted every scope on my PB rifles and air rifles using this rest.

     

     

    For target shooting off off the bench, I use this no longer can be found fully adjustable stand from Cabelas. I wish cabelas still carried these, as I’d love to reccomend this as a stand to others. It’s time out seemed short lived. Maybe due to its weight at almost 45 lbs. It uses no sandbags or weight plates to keep it steady.
