Montie Gear Lightweight AR Rest Review

Everyone has their own approach to creating sight-in stands. My main concerns for a piece of gear like this is that it is lightweight, durable and portable. Montie Designs has done a great job keeping these three attributes in mind when designing their Lightweight AR Rest.

The rest is made out of milled aluminum and has some seriously heavy duty rubber pads on it to prevent your gun from getting scratched. The rest also came with some small rubber pads to put on the feet in case you need a little more grip on the surface you’re shooting on.

This Lightweight AR Rest weighs in at less than 12 oz, so I don’t notice a difference in weight with it in my range bag. It also breaks down into three flat pieces that I can slide in between my handgun cases in my gear bag without taking up significant space.

This stand goes together easy. My only complaint is that it was a bit difficult to take the cotter pin out the first few times but after the break in period it is perfect. If you are looking for a sight-in stand that you can always keep in your bag, or just something to bench rest and shoot from, I would recommend heading over to and checking them out.
