Ransom Master Series Rest®

The Ransom Master Series Rest represents the handgun shooter we all wish we could be. It is a precision, passive device that holds, fires, and recoils as nearly like the human hand as possible. It eliminates the human inconsistencies that ordinarily make handgun testing unreliable. The Ransom Master Series Rest is the only machine rest to successfully accomplish the goal of precise, repeatable handgun accuracy testing. since 1968, it has become an international standard for accuracy testing.

The Ransom Master Series Rest® is the only machine to successfully accomplish this goal. the proof it has achieved this purpose is attested to by its worldwide use by many major handgun manufacturers, handgun ammunition makers,and pistolsmiths who build or modify high-quality handguns.

Solving the multitude of problems was not simple, and required long study and testing. The resultant machine is a combination of carefully chosen design features and special materials. The Ransom Rest therefore looks and operates like no other rest because it is the only one to identify and solve the defined problems.

To duplicate the grip of the hand, "grip inserts" are used. 100s of grip insert models are available because each gun model must be held as precisely as possible. The Ransom inserts provide the proper hold, remaining just resilient enough to reproduce a shooter's handhold.

The recoil from each shot is absorbed in the first few milliseconds not only by the grip insert, but by the  Ransom designed mechanism® which brakes each shot in an identical manner. (The Ransom Master Series Rest®  is capable of handling recoil up to and including the -44 Magnum.)

All Grip Inserts are attached to The Ransom Master Series Rest®by the A,B,C plate Retained by three star knobs Insert changes are easily accomplished but firmly held Grip Inserts for The Ransom Master Series Rest®  are sold separately and can be found on website but for a exhaustive list or a complete updated list please call and see if we have that model grip insert. Blanks and custom Grip Inserts are available.

Tips for Using the Ransom Master Series Rest We suggest your Ransom Master Series Rest is firmly attached to a wooden base. We recommend 1inch thick plywood, with 1x1inch wooden strips at the front and rear of the wooden base to isolate the Ransom Master Series Rest from twisting forces that may be applied when the base is clamped to the shooting bench. Make sure the wooden base that you design is firmly clamped to the shooting bench, and that the bench itself is sound and secure. C-clamps represent a quick, easy and portable method for clamping the wooden base to the shooting bench. The wooden base used for the Ransom Master Series Rest should be level. If the rest is not level, accuracy and repeatability of shooting tests may be affected. Replacement parts can be Purchased at Ransom Please Call or Email Us for Pricing.
