The Marksman's Box
The Marksman's Box is a rifle and pistol shooting rest that was designed out of frustration with the bulky, hard to manage, unstable shooting rests available on the market today. If you are a competition shooter, varmint hunter, or just crave a good solid shooting rest to use when sighting in your firearms prior to hunting season or testing your favorite recipe for hand loads, the Marksman's box is just what you need.
Some of the benefits of the Marksman's Box are:
- Rock Steady
- Ammo/Cleaning supply storage (holds 320 30-06 rounds in 20-packs)
- Spotting scope mountable
- Self leveling
- Swing shooting with no adjustments
- Prone or bench shooting
- Carrying strap built in (easily portable)
- Height adjustable (raise/lower belt)
- Rifle or Pistol shooting ability (with no adapters needed)
- Durable!!! Constructed of tough Lexan (material used to protect humvees in Iraq)
A quote from the inventor, Gene McCarron of Iowa:
"You may swing your rifle from side to side to engage targets other than what's in front of you. Most other rests are a pain in the (editedJ) to swing back and forth. There is no effort to do that with the box. Most other rests have to be leveled before you use them; not the box. Just throw it on the ground anywhere and if it is setting off level, the rifle will automatically find the lowest spot on the belt just by simple everyday gravity, wonderful stuff God invented. You may also shoot a pistol over it. Just lay the trigger guard on the belt and blast away. One guy explained it after I showed him…, 'It's so simple it's stupid!' I thought that was quite eloquent."
Gene shot a 5 shot 14-inch group at 1000 yards in competition using a Swedish Mauser in 6.5 X 55mm. He was using a $75.00 rifle against rifles in the $3-5K price range. Although he did not win first place, he did come in a very respectable third. He attributes a good part of his successful shooting to the solid hold the Marksman's Box provided for his rifle.
Our field testing staff has been thoroughly impressed with the ease of use and absolute stability of the box. The more they use it, the more they like it. We think you will agree.
The pictured box has been camo spray painted. Yours will come to you in olive drab.
