I got this
idea from browsing a Cabella's catalog. These guys want around $60 for
their ``Hardwood Gun-Vise". I used some scrap materials that were
just leftovers from some woodworking projects to build this. It holds
any rifle securely for cleaning or maintenance.
The project is straightforward enough that you probably can figure it out on your own. For those who are short of time though, I do have a complete plan available that includes the template for the lock down cam parts.
The cam lever and block are the only parts that require some careful sanding and fitting to work well. When done right you can pick up the rifle and the vise will lift with it. I also line any surfaces that contact the gun with either leather or rubber from an old inner-tube. Below is what you will need.
