Using Standard Combo Chair Deploying Arm Rest/Rifle Butt Rest Arm Rest/Rifle Butt Rest (Right & Left Hand Shooting) Using Arm Rest and Rifle Butt Rest Shotgun Chair Format


Using the Standard Combo Chair Compact! Without doubt the best way to use the Rifle Chair is sat upright as illustrated left. Although this position may seem a little unconventional, However, sitting in an upright position is the most comfortable and stable posture to adopt. This means having the Rifle Support Arm as upright as possible with your Rifle in the Gun Cradle at the rifles’ *point of balance just forward of the trigger guard, this is by far the most SOLID shooting position. RESULT: Total concentration on the shot! Alleviates aches and pains which can occur when shooting in prone, standing and kneeling positions, especially for long periods. Shoulders and arms completely relaxed, eliminating body tension from rifle hold and grip. Instead, it allows for breathing and heartbeat control, whilst concentrating on the finesse of the shot!

Incorrect use of chair! Or is it? *

Although, as you can see from this picture, this posture is less comfortable than shown in the picture above, rifles however, come in all shapes and sizes (as do humans), for instance, some rifles have magazines which are clipped into and protrude from, the underside of the action. This may necessitate the Rifle Support Arm being pivoted forward. If this is the case for you and your rifle, obviously the Rifle Support Arm will have to be pivoted forward, again however, this should be kept to the absolute minimum to achieve best, all round results.

Another important point to note! – Although shooting horizontally can be achieved as in both these illustrations! A closer than expected shot can more easily be taken, if you are positioned in the more compact way (top picture). This allows you to pivot downwards to less than 10 metres more easily. Important! A common practice but strongly NOT advisable! When someone sits on the chair for the first time and proceeds to try to test the stability of the chair by pulling and pushing on the Rifle Support Arm – This is NOT GOOD PRACTICE! This is a precision part of the chair and should be treat as such. 3


Deploying Arm Rest/Rifle Butt Rest When the Arm Rest/Rifle Stock Rest is attached to the Chair but not in use, the securing pin should be pulled to allow the pad to be placed vertical. Untighten the Rest clamp adjustment thumbscrew (green), extend the Rest until the open end of the pad bracket aligns with the narrower body of the Rifle Support Arm, then allow the Rest to return to its lowest point and retighten the clamp adjustment thumbscrew (green). This will retain the Arm/Rifle Stock Rest in an upright position, parallel to the Rifle Support Arm for ease of transportation. IMPORTANT: first attain the most comfortable and secure shooting position for you and your rifle, in relation to the front rifle support arm! Trying to set both rifle rest and arms rest at the same time may prove a little difficult.

Deploying the Arm/Rifle Stock Rest: Untighten the Rest clamp adjustment thumbscrew (green), extend the rest until the open end of the pad bracket aligns with the narrower body of the Rifle Support Arm.

Pivot the rest towards you.

Position the Pad horizontal until the bottom hole in the Pad bracket aligns with the hole in the Arm/Rifle Stock Rest extension piece. Insert the detent pin to secure this position. The Arm/Rifle Stock Rest is now ready to use.

IMPORTANT! – First, set the front gun support arm as illustrated on page 19 “Using the Standard Combo Chair (Compact) Second, Deploy Arm/Rifle Stock Rest as illustrated below

Arm/Rifle Stock Rest – Used as Arm Rest NOTE: Arm Rest Pad is pivoted off centre – This means the bias of the pad can point backward when deployed as an Arm Rest and is usually at its best in its lowest position and should be resting against your body. This can be a great advantage should you need to adjust posture slightly when aligning for a shot.

VERY SOLID!

Arm/Rifle Stock Rest – Used as Rifle Butt Rest NOTE: Arm Rest Pad is pivoted off centre – This means the bias of the pad can point forward with the arm extended up to the underside of the Rifle Stock when deployed. The Pad should be resting against your body. This can be a great advantage should you need to adjust posture slightly when aligning for a shot.

VERY, VERY SOLID!
