Big Game Treestands Swivel-Action Shooting Bench
Great shooting bench
I just ought this bench last week and over the weekend I put it through its paces. The bench is very stable, the only bench that I have used that was more stable is a fixed bench. It rotates smoothly if you are following a target and the top locks in tight with the cam on the bottom.
One thing that I will say is that it is not easily portable if you are looking for something to carry out in the field with you, but I do not see how a really stable rotating bench can b, so I do not consider this to be a detriment.
The padded top has a pocket on each side that is good for placing spent brass or a rangefinder (like a Leica CRF 1200) in. I am planning on using the bench this year hunting Whitetail at 300-600 yard ranges. I sighted in two rifles last weekend and the bench was solid and flawless. Good bench.

Works for me.
I will be replacing the bolt for the seat with a suitable removable device, the seat is a royal pain in the butt when transporting, unless it is removed.
The plastic caps for the legs tend to come out. I will be drilling the legs so I can secure them with a bolt.
The gun rest is a nuisance, throw it away.
I reversed the location on the base for the bolts, opting instead to detach the legs for transport. I just pull out the snap pins. Much easier. You don't need a third arm to handle it anymore.
Works fine for shooting, once its setup, very comfortable and secure.

I HAVE TAKEN MINE IN THE BACK OF MY PICKUP FROM FLORIDA TO SOUTH DAKOTA FOR THE LAST 3 YEARS AND GOING WITH ME AGAIN THIS MAY. IT HAS SAT THRU HEAT, RAIN, AND SNOW ON THE ROAD AND UNCARED FOR IN MY GARAGE AT OTHER TIMES. A SQUIRT OF WD-40 EVERY SPRING AND IT'S ALL SET TO GO. I DO TAKE THE COVER OFF WHEN DONE FOR THE DAY. WELL WORTH THE PRICE.

Money well spent!
I bought this without being able to see it in person first, I knew I wanted a bench and needed it in a few days so shopping around wasn't an option. I looked at a few other models online but this one seemed to have the same features and positive reviews without the expense. It showed up fast to my door step and assembled with ease. I took it out that weekend and instantly fell in love with it. It is sturdy when sitting in it and the swivel feature is perfect. My shooting partner was also sold on it, he is 6'4" and 230 lbs. It supported the weight and worked great even for a tall person.
