    Marions vice is more like a gun cradle for working on rifles.

    exactly it is not a shooters stand and isnt designed for that
    I had a need for a way to hold a rifle while cleaning and working on it (hence this design)

    Hmmm, even a wood butcher like me could pull that off. Time to dig through the stack of misc. boards I have and see what I can do. Just something to hold the rifle with while cleaning would be very useful to me. Thanks for posting this!

    I made something similar. Hate spending when I can build my own. Clamps are cheap at Harbor Freight and often cheaper on sale. (Online if you don't have a store nearby). Remember to pad points that contact your gun. I used soft leather on mine with good results. Grips well without marking. Will absorb gun oil/solvent tho'. Careful around fine finishes....(on a Mosin?)...

    I used leather on my own at home but the ones i sold had felt on them at points of contact
    V for barrel, inside of clamps,front board in front of clamps and board behind clamps
