Has anyone tried 3d printed Ransom Rest inserts? I found a set for the Pardini, but was hoping to get some opinions. I'm concerned the hard plastic may not be ideal for the application.  Thank you for your time.

I have a set although I haven’t tried them yet. Another member herein, whom I respect, gave them a good recommendation. I definitely like the way they attach v the inserts from Ransom Rest. 

If you are interested, I will be selling the RR ones.

I use them and think they are great. They bolt directly to the frame in place of the Pardini grips and are drilled for the 3 Ransom Rest mounting bolts. No elastomeric required.

Could someone list a source for 3D printed RR inserts.

Andrew must be away from his computer as he watches these forums closely.  

I received a pair of Ransom Rest inserts for Benelli  MP95E from him.  They fit VERY well.  

Now I just have to figure out how to make the Ransom Rest immobile short of BOLTING it to the bench.

Sometimes the bench itself is not steady enough. I bolt mine to a concrete bench mounted on a concrete slab. But I realize not everyone has that option at their range.

you are totally correct about the stability of the bench.  At home, my bench is not stable enough.  At our club, the bench is secured with 4/6 posts into concrete.  It does not move.  

I use two bar clamps in the front and usually secure the back with a ratcheting strap to one of the posts that go to concrete.  Last time I was there I was unable to use the strap.  So the RR moved around a bit and I had to re-aim left to right for each shot.  Elevation was fine.  

That being said I got a 1 5/8 group at 50 yards with .32 smith and wesson long out of a Benelli.  I am hoping that it was a good load and not just luck.  

It is winter here, I may not get a chance to do this again for several months.
