Product Spotlight: Real Avid Armorer's Master Vise
Brownells Gun Tech™ Caleb Savant tells us about his new favorite vice... wait, his new favorite gun VISE, the Real Avid Master Gun Vise. This vise is constructed entirely of heavy steel, except for the knobs and padded jaws. Real Avid even thoughtfully includes lag bolts for mounting it to your workbench. But the Big News is the swiveling ball mount that lets you angle the vise any way you need it to get good access to the part of the gun you're working on.
What if you need the vise head to stay rock steady while you torque off a stubborn barrel nut or something? Insert the locking pin to lock down the vise in the upright position, and it's as solid as any traditional vise. The vise jaws are reversible, so you can use the padded side or the (still non-scratching) hard polymer side. For really heavy-duty jobs, you can use the underlying steel vise jaws.
There's more! Another knob on the Master Gun Vise lets you gently tilt the vise jaws, so for example, if you're boresighting a rifle, you can precisely level up the gun before you mount the scope.
