The MTM Shoulder-Gard Rifle Rest is a recoil reducing rest. With the growing popularity of magnum calibre rifles, heavy recoil can be a real pain. To address this issue, MTM has made a 4-point, flexible base, shooting rest designed to ease the shoulder punishment of sighting-in powerful magnum rifles. By utilising the integrated recoil-reduction sling, shooters are able to relax and shoot more comfortably, knowing that less recoil from the gun is going to be felt. The recoil reduction sling does not have to be used with lighter calibers rifles.
How does the Shoulder-Gard Rifle Rest work?
How the rest is to be used for maximum recoil reduction. The feet of the rest need to be flat on the surface you are shooting off of. We suggest that you add some weight to the middle section to make sure the rest is flat and stable. The rest has been designed to flex in the middle of the base to sit flat on any surface with the addition of a little weight. 10 to 25 pounds added to the middle compartment will flex the base and make it very stable.
The recoil reduction sling the stock needs to be pulled tight in to the sling. You need to keep one hand on the forearm of your hunting rifles, because it will want to jump up when shooting. Applying a slight downward pressure with your forearm will usually produce the best groups. Recoil reduction happens by the strap pulling into the rubber pad, which absorbs and transfers energy into the back of the base, which flexes transferring energy to the shooting bench. The shooting bench needs to be rigid and clean with the rest getting a good grip.
Remember the gun is not going anywhere because the back of the gun is strapped in and the front is in your hand. Instead of firmly putting your shoulder into the butt stock, back it off about a half inch to an inch and you will notice reduced recoil. For maximum accuracy you need to lock the front fork in place by tightening the fluted knob
