    Default Bench pod tests

    I took both tripods to the range today for testing with my 191 with the new spade grips. I reworked the first model by tilting the front legs to eliminate the tendency to tip forward. Both models worked great. they both are the right height to sit and shoot off the bench comfortably. The second model with the GI T&E looks better than the other one but I kind of like the first model better. I plan on making a brass deflector for it to seperate the links from the empty cases, it is a pita to sort them out. All that needs to be done for the first model is finish the windage mechanism. The elevator works good and the gun is very stable on both. Rapid fire with the spade grips is a thing to behold, the gun sounds like a FA when shooting.

    They look excellent.

    On the links, have you tried a magnet to seperate the steel from the brass ?? Didn't know how well it would work in this application

    Have you ever tried a crank on your 1919 ??


    Did I do that?

    The 1919 is set up for 8mm and I use steel cased romanian ammo. I haven't tried a crank, you can really lay out the lead with the spades.
