The Racken Rest is a gun rest designed to hold a rifle on a window sill unassisted even while driving the vehicle. The Racken Rest eliminates the need for a shooter to continuously remove and reset a rifle every time he/she needs to take a shot. The mount has a swiveling capability for lateral and vertical movement. The tension controlled vertical and horizontal swiveling action has a range unmatched by any other rest ever developed for the doors of an SUV vehicle. The arms are also telescopically adjustable for height and length.
NOTE 1: If you require more pivoting and range capabilities Eagleye has a double pivot mount that is easily added to the Racken Rest.
NOTE 2: Short base model is available. Designed for vehicles with a shorter window sill. (Land Cruisers and old model Hi Lux etc) Ensure your window base is the correct length before purchasing. The shot base model measures 45cm in length and has two long struts included in the package for the square shaped window vehicles. The long base measures 63cm. Please note dimensions are detailed at the bottom of the package.
NOTE 3: We have long arms in stock for extra height. The long arms are mainly necessary on low window sills.
NOTE 4: It is important to keep the swivel bolts tight. Eagleye recommends a thread glue to be used during the attachment assembly. Ensure the bolts that hold the swivel bearings are checked for adequate tension before use in order for the units to function properly.
