The Tipton Gun Vise uses a rubberized cradle and jaws to gently and securely hold your firearm for safe and efficient gun cleaning, scope mounting and routine maintenance. All contact points are padded to prevent damage to wood, synthetic or metal surfaces. The unique quick-cam action quickly and easily secures most long guns. The sturdy base features molded-in compartments for cleaning supplies and small parts. This vise also features a convenient slot for your cleaning rod, two holes for large bottles of cleaning solvent, two small holes for smaller bottles, two shallow dished holes for small parts and a large cut out for the rifle bolt.
