    AR-Rest is Now Available - New Product Announcement


    I just wanted to let you know that we are now shipping our AR-Rest shooting rests. This is a lightweight, easy-to-deploy and American made rest. The AR-Rest came from changes requested by the shooting community after we released the X-Rest. The AR-Rest is taller and provides clearance for a high capacity magazine by placing the bottom of the fore stock approximately 9.5 inches from the ground or bench top.

    Units are available for Test & Evaluation, contact Montie Roland for more information on our T&E Program.

    You can read more about the AR-Rest on our website. If you have any questions about the rest please don't hesitate to contact me via email at [email protected].


    The press release follows:

    Montie Design Releases the AR-Rest Lightweight Portable Shooting Rest

    Update to popular X-Rest a response to viral popularity, feedback from customers

    (Morrisville, N.C.) Collaborative product design and development firm Montie Design has released a much anticipated upgrade to its popular X-Rest portable shooting rest, the AR-Rest. The new release features design enhancements to the original product conceived, designed, and distributed by Montie Design in the Spring of 2009.

    “The response to the initial availability of the X-Rest last year surpassed our expectations,” Montie Roland, company president, said. According to Roland, his firm has seen demand for the X-Rest grow regionally and nationally as product reviews and feature articles on the product began to find their way into firearm and engineering industry media outlets.

    “It’s been exciting to see the popularity of the X-Rest grow virally, which has led to a ton of feedback and extremely useful interaction with customers,” he added.

    Roland said that feedback led to the development of the newest version of the X-Rest, the AR-Rest and AR-Rest LIGHTWEIGHT. Both versions are lightweight and place the stock of the supported rifle approximately 9.5 inches from the top of the shooting surface, allowing proper clearance for firearms with high-capacity magazines.

    Both the X-Rest and AR-Rest are easy-to-carry, weigh less than two pounds, and disassemble easily in three pieces for easy transport. Both versions are made of sturdy yet lightweight aluminum, providing steady support for a wide-range of semi-automatic and bolt action firearms.

    Industry estimates put the number of U.S. firearms industry-related companies at about 200, producing over $2 billion annually in revenue. Approximately a half-dozen shooting ranges are located in the Triangle region of North Carolina, with numerous retailers selling guns and ammo to hunters and competitive shooters.

    The AR-Rest and X-Rest are both produced locally in the Triangle using local manufacturers.
