Caldwell has just dropped a lighter, sleeker alternative to their venerable Lead Sled line of rifle rests. It’s called the Stinger Shooting Rest, and it’s uniquely designed with MSRs, lever guns, and other guns requiring extra clearance underneath the action in mind. Caldwell’s press release and more photos follow . . .

Saw a pic of one in use somewhere. The lead sled is great for high recoil guns but something much more portable is ever so welcome!
Thanks for carrying Caldwell.
This is a much needed idea in rest design, but just looking at the pictures here it seems sadly lacking any length adjustment or a decent rear rest. The AR pictured has the common but troublesome-at-the-bench buttstock and appears to be levitating over the rear rest. Looking at the pistol grip and the mag, there appears to be very little room for fore-and-aft adjustment to get the butt where it needs to be. And bigger AR-style guns, AR 10s, etc., may not fit at all.
Looks to me like the length adjusts in the front by flipping those 2 levers and sliding the front piece on the support rails.
Yeah, looks like there’s around 6″ of front-rear adjustment of the front rest as JWT described.
RF took a liking to this thing and we’ve requested a loaner for review…
