Thread: Legal Knee rests

    Default Legal Knee rests

    "Knee rests must have a flat surface, no shaped knee rest surfaces will be allowed, maximum height allowed must not exceed 150mm from the centre of the bore line to bottom of the knee rest."

    This is taken from the SAFTAA rules. My question: Is the knee rest in the picture legal to use? From my point of view it has a shaped surface.

    What do u think?

    Nope. The surfuce that is used to rest the rifle on is flat.

    Legal. The rest is not shaped to accept his knee. It's flat, thus it's legal.

    It is not perfectly shaped to fit his knee yes, but it is shaped and not flat.

    The rest is not shaped---shaped means orthopaedically formed to fit over and around the knee--this is an Anschutz palm rest. it is bent purposefully to accept another raised section not being used in this case and adjustable.The section that rests on hand /knee is flat and is legal(our opinion)

    I also think it looks to close to the rule borderline. Another question about knee rests. Does it have to be fitted to the rifle or can you have a mobile rest made that you can slot your rifle into for knee shots ?

    With his hand in place as in the photo, it seems like he is creating a perfect fit to the knee along with the bend down piece in front?

    Well Gerrief .Rules are rules.Best to stay on the safe side.Would be real bad if you win in Poland and have it taken away because somebody makes an issue out of it.
