Viper Barrel Vise$60.00
This is a really excellent benchrest barrel vise from Bob Pastor at Viper in Michigan. I had a bunch of them at the Super Shoot this year and they sold out in about two hours, shooters were raving about the features, quality and finish. This type of barrel vise is for benchrest actions or factory actions where the factory barrel has already been removed – it will not work to remove original factory barrels in most cases. The Viper Vise is machined aluminum, base is 1” thick, 7” x 3”. The top (red part) is ¾” thick, 3” x 3”, and is kept in the raised position by four captured springs – much handier to use than other vises without springs. The base piece is finished with a textured black powder coating, and the top piece is smooth red powder coating. The powder coated finish actually helps grip the barrel and prevents marring of the barrel if it does turn a bit (it won’t). Most guys say they don’t put paper or anything else around the barrel when they use this vise. Base has ½” holes for bench mounting, or C-Clamps work just fine. The viper Vise will handle just about all benchrest barrels from light varmint contour through 1.350” railgun barrels. Probably the nicest vise we have seen and a real bargain as well.
