    Is the AR in the photo sporting a Proof barrel?

      Kinda looks like it.

    Why the heck would you want to stick a lightish rifle onto a tripod that weighs about as much as it does? o-o

    • Because it is very stable position. When you don’t need that stability you just flip the lever on the tripod head to disconnect it. The weight added to the rifle is very minor.

      Wrong Tripod.
      A mount that would fit on a Gitzo head and tripod, that would hold up to firing a 240B off of it, now that would be great.



      but still lighter than hauling a real bench around, or a pile of sandbags
