Works for me. They have cheaper models as well.

Does anybody know of a good rest that is decently priced that I can use for my rifles when I'm cleaning? Right now, I'm just using a towel laid out on my coffee table and trying to balance the gun while ramming a cleaning rod through it. It works but…it's a pain in the behind.
I've viewed a number of different cradles and other such things, but none that I saw seemed to be worth what they were asking.
What do you all use? Any suggestions?

I like the Tipton Gun Butler for cleaning. I also have the Tipton "vise" posted in the link above and only use it when I'm putting on a scope and lining up the reticles.
I made my own in about an hour, out of some scrap wood and a dowel rod... I can slide the ends to accommodate any length firearm. Cost was about $2.50.

Rest for cleaning rifles? Nah, I just get my usual 8 hours sleep before I start. I don't do anything special.
I also use the Tipton gun vise and recommend it.
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
