Thread: Primos 2-point gun-rest - any good?

  1. #1

    Primos 2-point gun-rest - any good?

    I'm thinking of getting one of these, but reviews online seem pretty mixed, with quite a few people saying they're a bit flimsy. I'd be interested to hear the views of anyone who's used them, or anything similar. At the moment I use quad sticks - I really like the stability, but turning them with the rifle resting on them is not a smooth operation, to say the least. That's why I like the idea of this rest, which seems to offer stability whilst also being able to turn and tilt smoothly. Any views/ thoughts on it gratefully received. Thanks.

    I've got the tripod, well I did till it was stolen on Sunday, and find it great but easily damaged. I must have put something heavy on it in the van and bent one leg just enough for it not to drop under its own weight. Just ordered a replacement.

    I also have one, they are OK but not as steady as quad sticks

    Sorry to hear that JTO. Anyone use the 2-point gun rest on the tripod?

    Its the 2 point gun rest that I have and as mentioned earlier its not as stable as quad sticks.

    No doubt the quad stick are more stable. What accuracy do you need? Do want to chest shoot a deer at 200 yards in a few seconds on uneven ground, down hill? Do you want a fast follow up shot as the deer legs it? Then my money is with the primos sticks and the 2 point makes it stable enough for me to do that most days of the week.

    I use quad sticks all the time, practice is the key! For me the usage of a stable platform far out weighs any time saved in turning around.

    Personally I have took to them very well and not found a situation where I was hindered by them, mine being made from the garden cane material then I could just close them up like a set of single pair just resting on the front of the stock.

    I zero off mine as that is what suites me, I doubt many people zero off a single pair...

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club
