Ruckersville, VA. -Ashbury Precision Ordnance (APO) Manufacturing introduces the new RSTA-II Tripod Shooting System for RifleSports focusing on long range hunting, practical/tactical rifle competition, and professional marksmen. The RSTA-II Tripod Shooting System allows long gun users to shoot from a variety of alternate shooting positions while standing, kneeling or sitting whether on flat ground, rock strewn, steep mountainous or complex urban terrain.
The 1.1 pound RSTA-II Tripod Head allows users to position long guns using the Rapid Control Handle (RCH) which can be set up for either right or left hand control. This versatile tripod head provides a positive locking ±35 degree head that can securely hold a 25+lb long gun using a 6 o’clock accessory rail grabber, Pig Saddle or APO AnyPoint Bipod/Tripod Mount. RSTA-II Tripod Shooting Systems offer users a maximum shooting height of approximately 68 inches and collapses to approximately 29 inches using Quick Power Lock leg latches.
The standard duty RSTA-II Tripod Shooting System uses the stable, yet lightweight Manfrotto 190XPROB alloy tripod base that is suggested for long guns up to 15lbs. This tripod base uses 3-section legs that collapse into a highly portable field shooting platform at only 5.5 lbs. The extreme duty version of the RSTA-II uses the Manfrotto 055XPROB a heavy duty tripod base with larger diameter 3-section tripod legs weighing 6.6 lbs. that flexes less under heavier loads of up to 20 or more pounds. The RSTA-II allows shooters to track, lock and when ready accurately engage distant targets without fatigue. In rugged field testing for more than 18 months RSTA-II Tripod Shooting Systems were live fire tested with a wide range of rifles including the M107 50BMG!
Long-gun shooters can interchangeably mount semi-automatic carbines, shotguns, and a wide range of hunting and tactical rifles on RSTA-II Shooting Tripod platforms. Variable power spotting scopes are also easily mounted on the RSTA-II platform using the common 1/4×20 detachable baseplate, or clamped snugly inside the Pig Saddle. One tripod system, many uses!
APO’s RSTA-II Tripod Shooting System is designed to provide hunters, tactical rifle competitors and professional marksmen, with a sturdy and reliable portable shooting platform that can be employed from ground level to a full upright standing position. The RSTA-II Tripod Head is engineered and crafted from lightweight aluminum alloys, and has a hard coat anodized black non-reflective finish.
