Rear (Butt) Bags

These bags are used to support and steady the back of the rifle when shooting, particularly useful at long range. The bags are made of a high quality green corduroy material and filled with small plastic beads that are not affected by water, nor do the absorb it so your bag does not weigh a ton when wet, nor does it go hard.

The bag is used by placing under the butt of the rifle and adjusting the bipod until the sights are just slightly high of the target centre,  when in the shooting position the left hand (for right handed shooters) can genially squeezing the bag until sights are pointing at the centre of the target. 20.00

The Rest  has been used in the development of the bench plate and fore-end sled including several trips to the range where it has been used to test the system. It has been fitted with upgraded screws to the front and rear allowing for more travel.

The screws have also been fitted with larger bases so it does not sink in to soft surfaces as much. The platform and sled is the final pre-production unit and is unused as the original test platform was in what ever colours I had around rather than the black and grey. the rest is in good condition overall with one or two minor paint chips. The rest is also supplied with all the original front rest/sand bags and attachment screws  New this unit including the upgrades would be a 463.00.

Fulcrum Extender  models come with a "It works Guarantee" If you fit the extender to your rifle and any component bends or breaks  on your rifle under fair wear and tear or plain doesn't work it will be replaced or your money refunded within one year of purchase. P/P is not included, nor is unfair wear and tear such as attaching it to a 50 cal or any  bipod that can't slide flex under recoil, not heeding any warnings listed etc, in other words not using that rare commodity common sense.

What are the differences between the Fulcrum extender junior and Fulcrum extender Senior? 

The Junior kit is a good choice when used  on one rifle or rifles that have the same length from the rear mount to the end of the barrel, the senior is the best choice when used on several different length rifles.

The Junior  is not easily adjustable for length as there is no telescopic mechanism the senior has a telescopic mechanism, (compensates for different rifles)

The rifle tilt due to uneven ground is a function of the bipod attached not the Junior extender . The senior can rotate around the tube clamping so can be used with a fixed bipod without a swivel head.

The bipod on the junior is attached to the bottom of the tube so adds to the overall height of the rifle by 5cm rather than around 1cm for the senior which attaches to the top of the tube.

The Junior tube is 3cm for its entire length rather than 3.5cm and 3 cm on the senior.

The Junior comes with a clamp on 6 slot Picatinny rail  and a kit to fit a sling swivel,  the senior version is available with many quick change adaptors.

The Junior fits a 9 slot Picatinny rail the senior fits a 13 slot Picatinny rail.

The junior comes with  3 cornered clamping knobs the senior comes with clamping levers that can be pulled out and rotated  for angle if pointing the wrong way or just to line up.

The Senior is far more flexible than the junior version but is 100.00 more

Shown with a FireWolf bipod and fitted  to a 26" barrelled rifle  , Neither are included in this sale.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Fulcrum Extender is designed to allow you to move your bipod forward to the end of your barrel thus moving the fulcrum.  When shooting accurately you want the  end of the barrel pointing at the target with as little movement as possible, if you look at a seesaw you will notice the two ends go up and down but the pivot point (fulcrum) stays at the same height and moves very little. With a bipod attached to your rifle in the usual position the stock is at one end of the seesaw with the barrel at the other end, both rotate around the bipod. By moving the bipod to the end of the barrel the  rifle is only one end of the seesaw with the end of the barrel at the pivot point. Movement is greatly reduced. The fulcrum extender is made in two lengths so is suitable for any rifle barrel from 12" to 34"+.  If you  measure from where the Picatinny rail will attach to the rifle to the end of the barrel I can supply a fulcrum extender of the right length.

As the rifle is now supported at the ends only all the weight of the rifle is  keeping the rifle stable and reducing felt recoil and muzzle jump. This unit has been successfully tested on 338 Lapua magnum.

 

 Please note the tube clamp must be very tight especially on high recoiling rifles, Failure to keep this clamp tight will result in the tubes  sliding apart under recoil and possibly scratching the finish. This is not covered under warranty

 

Due to the way you attach the bipod to this device you only gain approximately 1/2 inch 12/14mm underneath the rifle so you can use the same bipod as you are already using.

Requires a 13 slot Picatinny rail on the bottom of your rifle for the fulcrum extender to attach too.

Different Bipod adaptors  are available depending how your bipod attaches . Please state how your bipod attaches to your rifle so the correct adaptor can be supplied.

One adaptor is supplied as standard although not shown in pictures below.

Additional adaptors are available at 15.00 each.
