    Right now my vice is rimfire benchrest rifles, particularly those I make from Remington 37 actions. However I consider it a passion, not a vice. What is your best gun vice? bob finger

    + 2 on the brownells vise.

    Had mine about 6 years now and love it.

    Also love the "missle tube" pads, wish I had bought the red and blue with the vise. Fitting is required but was no big deal with a cut off tool and a dremel for the final cuts...

    Brownells part # 080-000-364 and 080-000-365

    Aw noknock, you went and got serious. Just when I was gonna say I thought trapshooting was a pretty good gun vice. As for gun vises, yeah, I'd say Brownell's probably has about the best.

    If that is the type of vise you are looking for you can get this one from diefenbacher.com for 75% less than the one at Brownell's.

    tanda1, I looked at your website and thought $70.00, how is that much cheaper?

    I about S__t myself going back and looking at the brownells vise. I paid nothing near $300 back in 2004! I can't believe how much for replacement parts!

    I am scared to use the damn thing now, I can't afford the replacement part! LOL

    So scratch my earlier post. +2 for the blue vise above for $70.00. BAHAHA

    I still like my vise jaw pads and bet they could easily be fitted to the above blue vise.

    no5shooter, sorry didn't mean to get all serious, I would agree, trapshooting is a pretty good vice to have, although I kind of like the bunker trap thing as well! lol

    I'll have an occasional shot of Maker's Mark while cleaning my guns. Does that count?

    Can you look to see if your vice is made somewhere else than the blue Chinese one?

    My gun vice is that I spend too much time thinking about the next gun I want to buy.

    When not engaged in that vice I am usually thinking about the last gun I bought.

    “Looks like someone spent a lot of effort to copy the Brownell's vice!”

    Ummm...Steve, do you really think Brownell's designed and manufactured the vise they sell?

    Highly unlikely.


    Even though I do shoot "mass produced shotguns", I am looking forward to your report.

    Any chance you could do it today?

    If it looks decent then I could buy 6, give one to each of our 5 kids and still have one for myself. All for just $12 more than one from Brownells.

    Sorry folks. I guess what I am interested in is more of a gun cleaning vice like a Tipton or MTM. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    Ditto on the difference in name brand tools versus cheap imports. I have a gray version of the 'blue'one shown by tanda1 it came from Midwayusa.com about $40.00 and yes it is made in China PN# 534007. I felt that I would not likely be using a 24 inch pipe wrench on anything I might clamp in it or I would have bought a Wilton. Ha ha! Midway's Feb. sale flyer has a Tipton gun vise on sale for $36.99 part# 607-786 as we speak I think that might be what Westie is asking about. I have a Tipton Best Gun vise PT # 181-181 that has a few more bells and whistles than the one on sale. I believe it was about $80.00 or so on sale. I thought of making one out of wood like the one BROWNST100 shows but it seems like too much work to save $40.00 to me. Bill
