Steady Rest NXT Shooting Rest


The Steady Rest NXT gives you a steady, elevation-adjustable platform for sighting in rifles, pistols and patterning shotguns. The three-piece design allows the shooter to use the rest in one or two-piece configurations, allowing it to adjust to any length long gun as well as handguns. The front and rear support features a non-marring material that is gentle on your firearm’s finish yet is firm enough to provide a stable shooting surface. Overall length of rest is 26″ with 3″ of vertical cradle

    I was looking for an inexpensive shooting bench rest to sight in a new scope for my rifle. Considering how infrequently it would be used, I really didn’t want to spend a lot of money. This rest fit the bill. It came unassembled, but assembly took about 5 minutes, with 5 screws and 4 thumb-tightened bolts (for the bridge connecting the front and rear rest). It functions as described, and I’ve used it with both pistols and rifles at this point.

    PROS:
    – Easily raise or lower the front rest (and lock at desired height)
    – Will not damage the finish of your firearm
    – Great price!

    CONS:
    – It’s plastic, so it’s light. Moves very easily, even with light-recoil weapons.
    – Rear rest is too low, in my opinion…although you could add a sandbag or padding
    – Rear rest also doesn’t work well with some collapsible stocks
    – Bridge must be removed if using high-capacity magazines (i.e. AR-15 w/ 30-rnd mag)
    – With bridge removed, the stability of the front and rear rest is dramatically reduced
    – Have to fiddle with it to lay flat…tends to bow a bit in the middle.

    But my sight is now zeroed in, so it did it’s job.

    I bought this to help me sight in my rifle, and it worked fine. It’s not heavy, expensive, or meant to be clamped to a table. It’s just there to rest your rifle on and help you keep it steady as you squeeze the trigger. It does that, so I’m happy.

    If you are aspiring to be a bench rest shooter and really want to tune your rifle to shoot tight groups at distance from the bench, you’ll need to save your money and just buy the right rest for that sort of thing. This is not that sort of rest.

    This works well for a basic firearm rest, however I found a few things annoying with this setup. First, the height seemed mismatched for most bench setups I have used, being a bit low. This low profile also means you will not be using anything more than a 10 round clip in your AR 10/15 platform. Anything larger will not clear the bench. Second, it’s extremely light and doesn’t really have an option for weighting or bracing. While great for low recoil rifles, not ideal for anything with a kick…felt like it would break when I used it with an AR10 (.308) setup.

    On the positive side, it breaks down for portability, is light weight and easy to store. It takes up little valuable room in the truck for range days. It’s adjustable and can be used with rifles or pistols. It is just the right length for AR 15 platforms and snugs them in perfectly!

    Overall, this would feel like a more solid product and get a 5 star rating if it had a weighted based.
