Designed by a Marine Scout Sniper and OIF Veteran, a rifle rest tailored to the special operations and law enforcement community. The Hog Saddle Shooting Platform is constructed around four basic principles.

  • RUGGEDNESS - specifically designed for the military sniper to be impact and corrosion resistant

  • PORTABILITY - less than 16 oz

  • VERSATILITY - universal to any tripod platform utilizing 1/4-20 or 3/8-16 thread attachments

  • AMERICAN MADE - we didn't sell out and go to Asia or India. We kept our business in the USA

List of improvements:

  1. Opens 1/4" wider than original model.
    (2 11/16" Open, 1 1/2" Closed)
  2. Incorporates a retention button screw to prevent unintentional disassembly in the field.
  3. Weighs less than 16 ounces.
  4. Added cut-outs to the base of the HOG Saddle. These narrow slots better integrate with tripod heads or QR plates that have anti-rotation video pins.
