I am on the search for a good condition ransom rest. As far as inserts I don't need any as i have access to the ones I need . Open to with or without the wind age base. Let me know what you guys have.

Thanks

I have been looking for 2-3 months and finally came to the conclusion that I will have to buy a new one. Only old wore out ones have come up for sale

One thing to keep in mind is that if you can get a used one for the right price, they will rebuild it for around $160 and i guarentee you won't be able to tell to from new

Ok, never having used a Ransom Rest should I also purchase Ransom windage base.  I will have to make a plywood base to clamp to the bench rest at the range, I could certainly enhance the design to incorporate a sub-base incorporating adjustment for windage.  This option would probably add $25 for the extra hardware.  Any thoughts?

The adjustable base is nice for easy windage adjustmemts. You certainly duplicate it in your plywood base. It has to be solid and really locked down. No slack on its pivot point..

I watched a couple auctions end up a couple sawbucks shy of the price of a new one.  $435 at Champions Choice is very easy to forget in a couple of weeks.  That's what I just did.

I’d suggest the windage base also.

WTB Ransom Rest 25399210
Wooden bench, lots of large c-clamps.
Bench clamped to roof support.
Makes it serviceable.
Results about the same as pistol rest and a 4x scope.

If you look at the RR site, they offer a one-piece unit now that includes the windage adjustment.  Costs less than the former two pieces together.
