The Front Rest as purchased in standard color.

The Front Rest

The Front Rest - also called the Fulghum Rest - was designed by Ken Fulghum, a world class rimfire bench rest shooter. The Rest has been used by winners in competitions across the nation including IR 50-50, ARA Outdoor, and RBA Indoor. Some of the Front Rests have been bought by casual shooters who just want the best.

The Front Rest was designed with precision in mind. All parts, other than bushings, are machined from aluminum or solid steel bar stock. The windage/elevation assembly rides on two hardened and ground steel rods with a tolerance of .0005 of an inch. The risers of the elevation unit are also ground and honed to be within the same tolerances.

The windage is controlled by turning a knurled knob on either side of the windage/elevation assembly.  The knobs turn a screw against positive spring pressure to eliminate "chatter."  Elevation of the rest is controlled by an offset knob.  This knob utilizes a timing gear and belt drive system to eliminate all but the smallest amount of "backlash."  Make note the top is allowed to swivel on the elevation base to allow for excellent repeatability when returning to target.

The Rest allows windage travel of 6 feet and 15 feet of elevation, measured at a 50 yard shooting setup.


The Front Rest is sold in the standard color, silver vein hammertone, for $900* (Price is for rest ONLY, tops are not included).  There are also many custom color options available for an extra fee ($70 for in-stock colors).  While smooth finishes are available, Randolph Machine, Inc. does recommend using the "hammertone" finish for durability.

Due to the extraordinary rising costs of raw materials, Randolph Machine has been forced, regrettably, to raise its prices on rests and tops.
