This is our latest model HOG Saddle® with some improvements from the original design. The MOD7 is currently a standard issue item in the U.S. Marine Corps and other various Special Operations Units.
The MOD7 HOG Saddle is a rugged, lightweight, mobile shooting platform that has been designed from the ground up to universally attach to tripod-based modular equipment, providing the operator with a stable shooting position adaptable to diverse environments. It can also be used for providing stable platform for spotting scopes, range finders and weather meters.
HOG Saddle is designed by a Marine Scout Sniper and OIF Veteran, a rifle rest tailored to the special operations and law enforcement community and made for extreme precision.
The HOG Saddle Shooting Platform is constructed around four basic principles.
RUGGEDNESS: Purpose build for the military snipers to be impact and corrosion resistant
PORTABILITY: Light weight at less than 16 oz
