People have been asking for a rear bag rider for the RPR for a while, so I made a start on the project today. They will be a direct replacement for the existing butt pad back plate and will be vapour honed and hard anodised to match the chassis as best I can. The rider tube will be 18,5mm diameter and will be in self colour. I have not calculated the weight yet, however around 180 grams or just under should be close and there will be a lighter version with a carbon fibre tube.

I will be machining these as a limited run so if you are interested please shout now as I have a feeling the USA is going to snap the majority of them up rather quickly.

I would expect to ship to anodise in around 3 weeks so they should be ready for shipping start of December, just ready for Christmas :)

This particular model of rider has been long overdue, basically because I did not want to make it. I banged heads with the importer on a couple of occasions and decided not to support this model of rifle, however the issue is now resolved, I have access to what I wanted and the by product is all you lucky RPR owners can now own a Shooting Shed rear bag rider. Well can, assuming the USA take a breath as they seem very keen on the product right now.

Looks the business but as I have never used a bag rider and not sure why you would use one. I,m interested to know what the advantage of a bag rider is.
