Caldwell Introduces Revolutionary Rifle Rests

FIRE CONTROL OFFERS ADVANCED JOY-STICK ALIGNMENT SYSTEM
Caldwell's team of engineers has developed a series of rifle rests that incorporate the new Fire Control mechanism, an advanced alignment system that allows the shooter continual, one-hand adjustment of downrange crosshair alignment via a multi-directional control arm. A full-length model that supports the front and rear of the rifle as well as a traditional front rest will be offered. Delivery to dealers and distributors is scheduled for the spring of 2008.
The Fire Control mechanism allows continuous adjustment of the front forend support by manipulating the control arm with your fingertips. Once the coarse adjustments have been made to position the rest, the control arm allows fluid movement for precise crosshair alignment without having to change shooting position to loosen or tighten rest components. The end result is unmatched control of crosshair alignment in a rock solid shooting platform which delivers better accuracy than any existing rest.
This revolutionary development allows accuracy and speed previously unavailable in conventional rifle rests. The continuous precision adjustment of Fire Control allows the crosshairs to easily and quickly be manipulated as the shooter maintains a perfectly relaxed shooting position. Fire Control will give you the confidence of knowing your crosshairs will be precisely aligned as the trigger breaks. Providing control right up to the point of trigger break greatly enhances accuracy potential. Rests with fixed adjustment systems require the last micro alignment to come from leaning, pushing or pulling slightly on the gun and or rest, thus limiting accuracy greatly.
Another inherent benefit to these new Caldwell rests is ease and speed of realignment after recoil. No more moving the entire rest back into position or loosening knobs and turning screws to realign. With up to 60"" of windage and elevation adjustment at 100 yards, getting back on target instantly after recoil from a previous shot is at your fingertips via the control arm.
In addition to the precision alignment mechanism, these rests are built to exacting tolerances and specifications to provide the rock solid performance Caldwell is known for. ""We believe that the Caldwell name means 'innovation' to customers; the Fire Control series of rests will continue that Legacy."" said Russ Potterfield, President Battenfeld Technologies, Inc.
Look for these rests to hit the retail shelves sometime before shooting season this spring. Expected MSRP for the Fire Control Front Rest will be $249 and around $279 for the Full Length Fire Control Rest.
