    What is this?

    Does anyone know what this is? It looks like it is a shooting rest for a US M1903 - it is a perfect fit on the foreend.

    I cannot vouch if they were used in the armed forces of any country as a training aid my limited experience as an army cadet in the 70's they made you hold the rifle (Mk III 303's) as intended in the prone position and if you could not achieve that then they excesized you to the point where you could achieve the desired position for the duration of the range courses of fire.
    However in the regular services now with the equality & OHS stuff creeping in they may have a program in place to assist those that find supporting a rifles weight when prone an issue........

    I had one of those. It came along with a national match Springfield 1903 and a set of front and rear sight covers.

    Definately a Parker Hale musket rest normally found on wooden fortifications. Will be marked somewhere on the metalwork PH7. If not a copy of the PH7 Rifle/Musket rest

    Thanks for the info. I'll try to do some additional research with these leads.
