The Fire Control FCX™ combines the two most innovative rest technologies into the industry’s most advanced shooting platform. By incorporating the recoil reduction benefits of the Lead Sled® system along with the groundbreaking performance of the Fire Control mechanism, ultimate accuracy and comfort come together in one rest.
Lead Sled® recoil reduction works by capturing and efficiently transferring recoil energy from any rifle or shotgun through the frame system to the weights and weight tray. Effectively eliminating up to 95% of felt recoil not only makes shooting more enjoyable but it enhances accuracy by preventing flinching and promoting smooth trigger pulls.
The Fire Control™ mechanism is an advanced rest alignment system that is actuated by a “joystick” style control arm. The Control Arm can be moved in any direction to perfectly align the crosshairs and when it is released it holds the rifle in that exact position. This precision alignment of crosshairs to target allows the shooter to be perfectly relaxed when pulling the trigger, unlike conventional rests that require pushing, pulling or leaning into the gun to gain that final bit of alignment.
The rest is engineered and constructed for ultimate stability and durability. The adjustable length and front cradle height adjustment offer the versatility to accommodate almost any rifle, shotgun or muzzleloader.

How much adjustment will the Fire Control mechanism give me?
The control arm provides appoximately 60 MOA or 5 feet of adjustment at 100 yards.
Coarse Elevation Tension Adjustments on your Fire Control Rest.
The entire front cradle block moves up and down on the coarse elevation ram. There is an internal nylon tipped set screw that can be adjusted to provide enough tension to support your gun even while the elevation lock knob is not locked in place. To adjust the tension, remove the coarse elevation lock knob (smaller knob on the front) and make small incremental adjustments to the set screw with a hex driver. Be careful to not overtighten the set screw. Proper adjustment will allow the rest to hold the weight of your gun without the lock knob being engaged and still provides smooth one hand adjustments to coarse elevation.
Control Arm Tension Adjustment.
Precise tension adjustments can be made to the control arm mechanism. Tension is calibrated in the manufacturing process but over the coarse of normal use additional adjustments may be required. Four nylon tipped set screws on the back side of the front cradle block can be adjusted to increase or decrease the tension on the control arm. It is important to keep all four screws equally tensioned, and to NOT OVERTIGHTEN them. To make adjustments, back all four screws all the way out and inspect the nylon tips to be sure they are intact. Reinsert the screws gently until you feel them just make contact internally. Make small, quarter turn, incremental adjustments to all four screws keeping them in sync with each other until the desired tension is acheived.
What is the bennefit of the Fire Control Rest over other rests?
Like some other premium quality rests on the market, the Fire Contol is designed to provide you with a rock solid shooting platform for your rifle. The difference is in the Fire Control mechanism. Once your coarse elevation is set and the front cradle is locked in place you can adjust the point of aim by simply manipulating the control arm. Stop at any position and the gun is held on that point of aim with no additional movements required. Unlike traditional rests, this allows you to move the crosshairs to the EXACT position you want them and you can keep your body fully relaxed. You won’t have to push, pull or lean on the gun to get that last mico adjustment. Being fully relaxed with a solidly supported rifle is the key to acheiving the maximum accuracy potential of your gun.
