The Objective

Develop a portable rifle rest to allow hunters and target shooters to stabilize their gun on upright structures like trees or posts.  The resulting product was to be for recreational or military use and needed to be stable, strong, durable, corrosion resistant, UV stable, lightweight, compact, easy to use, quick to set up and quiet in operation.

The Solution

The final solution met all of the required criteria and F3 also added functionality that allowed for interchangeable accessories and a convenient mounting system to allow the product to be strapped around the hunters waist for ease of access and transport. 

The vast majority of the manufacturing was sourced locally allowing the product to proudly carry the Made in Australia badge.  All components were refined and ratified to allow for minimal labor content and hence a highly competitive Australian made product.

High end, engineering materials were specified to ensure the longevity of the product in its rugged application.

A very robust international patent portfolio was also possible due to the uniqueness of this product solution and many claims were added due to additions by F3.
