Caldwell® Steady Rest Shooting Rest - Model 548-664
This product is well built and sturdy enough for small caliber rifles. It is easy to set up and adjust. The only down side is it's not hefty enough for magmun rifles. My 300 win mag almost knocks it off the bench.

I purchased this gun rest to sight in my air rifles. From the very beginning I noticed that it kept moving every time I try to set up for a shot. I saw a review earlier where they put a sand bag on the front and that helped. Don't like that I have to spend more $$$ on a sand bag or two, however, the side benefit is that I didn't pay much for the gun rest to begin with.

This rest is fairly priced and so much better than squeezing sandbags to get the right sight picture! If you're shooting anything more than a .22 rimfire, you'll still want a sandbag for weight on the center bridge. Easy to assemble, easy to use, and very portable. I'm pleased with it. It's plastic, so we'll see how long it lasts, but even a couple of seasons would be a good value.

Good for the money
I purchased this to sight in my Air rifle, but I found out that you have to remove the rifle to cock it and that interfears with the sighting in process.This may be the case with all model gun rests.
Once the rifle sights are sighted it works great shooting targets.
