    I'm guessing that there's a pretty good chance that someone local to you has the tools and ability to do this simple job, but if you don't ever ask........

    Just got it today Amazon. It's fantastic. Sometimes the legs don't want to quite come out and you got to shake it but it's OK. For target shooting and hunting is probably perfect. I maybe question it's use in any kind of a tactical situation because I wouldn't be quite sure how to carry around. Better said, how practical it would be to carry it around. But I may stick it inside of a scabbard I have.

    But compared to the $50 one I bought where you have to twist those compression nuts for EACH LEG, it is undoubtedly worth another $50 to get something that's automatic.

    yeah sorta play w it in the yard to get use to it, the more you are with it the easier it is especially at night.

    I had left mine out in the field for a month (shot a hog, retrieved it, took the meat, went home, left the trigger sticks right where I made the shot. Came back a month later, they were still standing there. They sat through a hand full of rains, and lots of humidity/fog/dew, sun heat and cold.. Well Texas cold). For a few weeks one or two of the legs was kinda finnicky... Wouldn't stay extended after releasing the trigger But after some WD-40 and repetitive extending and descending and twisting of the legs, it works like new again and has for almost a year since. Hopefully sharing that didn't jinx it!

    I have two of them, unfortunately both have "died" ... I tried the WD-40 ... extend/de-extend exercise ... and the legs move ... but one will not "stick" ... i.e. any weight on one leg and that leg collapses ... and on the other one ... no amount of direct pressure with the trigger pressed will move the leg ... only twisting while pulling or pushing will move it. Maybe I could move the legs around and cannibalize one to get the other working a bit. Still haven't tried that (RD) idea. But I still think they work great, as long as they work! One of them worked for about 100 nights before dying ... the other about 20 nights before dying.

    Mine are still working well sort of I have an occasional leg that sticks now. But they are filled with sand and we're under water almost ten hours when I hit the sinkhole.

    I've had one pair. It crapped out on me after being wet. My fault I left it in the bed of my truck. I tried Oso's new one and I really like it. It is one of the gun writers name. I can't remember off the top of my head. To much recoil from the 300 BLK I guess. LOL

    Oh yeah it's a Jim Shockey version.

    All that recoil got your brain a little fuzzy?
