NEW PRODUCTS FOR 2014!


SUPER-SLICK MATERIAL!

Super Slick Fabric

This thang started in Texas and began to spread...
Super slick material can be substituted for cordura on all rearbag ears and frontbag tops. It's a 3M reflective material with imbedded microscopic glass beads that is very durable and friction-free. This material allows smoother recoil and better returnability of your rifle. Let us slick out the bag of your choice!



FROGBAG

A radical new ear design. The unique radius concept allows minimal stock contact for a very smooth ride. Works best with a reverse bag base and available in leather, cordura or slick material.



REVERSE-BAG BODY

Reverse-Bag Body

Over the years, we've made a specialized bag, conceived by one of benchrest's finest shooters, Gary Sinclair.
Among the features of this rear bag is a "reverse" body which allows the shooter to get closer to the bag without disturbing the setup. So many shooters have given us positive reviews that we began offering this bag body in both Original and Minigator (the Gatorbag has always been reversed)... Works especially well for big guys.



DELUXE BOLT HOLSTER

FILLING INSTRUCTIONS


For both front and rear bags, you will start by looking for the black nylon/cordura flap. This flap will have white stiches running along both sides. Note that the flap is actually two pieces of nylon/cordura which are sewn together. These two pieces must be separated at the end where there are no stitches in order to insert a funnel or other filling device.

Hold the bag so that the flap is pointed straight up and fill half way. Using a blunted rod and alternating between filling and packing, begin packing the sand firmly into the bag until the shape is uniform and you are satisfied with the firmness. Slam the base of the bag firmly on the bench several times to compact and evenly seat the sand. Then, check to see if more sand needs to be added. Repeat this process for the ears if you are filling a rear bag. Note that as the sand continues to condense during use, the bag may occasionally require additional sand until it reaches maximum capacity.

When you are done filling:

*Rear Bags-
Tuck the flap into the slot directly underneath itself by creating a "U" shape with the flap and pushing it into the slot. The flap has a built-in tab which makes it easy to insert a blunt tool as an aid to push the flap into the slot. Repeat this process for the ears.

*Front Bags-
Simply tuck the flap under the bag and insert it into your rest. You may apply a small, thin piece of tape to hold the flap in place under the bag.

TROUBLESHOOTING


If you find, after filling your bag or after the sand has settled, that your bag bulges on the bottom or rocks when on the bench try the following: Bang the bag flat down on the bench then gently slide it into place. Slapping the bag firmly onto the bench shifts the sand back up into the body of the bag and flattens the base of the bag. By pushing - rather than lifting - the bag into place, the bag will maintain that flat base.

You may also find that using one of our Dead Bottoms (located on our Catalog Page) will help to correct the bottom "bulge" and create a flat surface to stabilize the bag. Note that the dead bottom will raise the bag approximately 3/4".
