I was wondering if there are any upgrades/ extras that can be purchased for this rest?
We make some improvements... especially if long range benchrest is your game.
I can vouch for most of the F&C mods. I have the fine speed screw, the windage preloader, and the wrench. They work very well, I'm impressed with the first two especially.
The base plate really opened up the rest stance and moved the elevation speed screw where it’s more comfortable for me. Great mod....
Just ordered the new base plate, speed screw and wrench about two hours ago. I need all the help I can get, lol!
I am getting ready to place my order as I have some birthday money to spend, A couple of questions for members who have bought the above items
The precision adjustment screw. Do you just take out the original and screw in the new? No other mods required? How do you like it? Do you see much of a deference between the factory screw and this?
Has anyone used the spring loader? Thoughts on it? Does it make much of a difference Are there any special mods required to the base or does it just bolt on?
Thanks for the help and advice
I have the spring loader installed, and it does help. When moving the windage it stays in place, where before it kind of stutter stepped around. Same with the new speed screw, before when you moved the old screw it was pretty jerky motion. Now it's not like that.
I'm happy with both items.
You could just get a JJ if you like that type of rest. It doesnt need “fixing”
Are they still being made?Do they have a website? Cannot remember seeing them up for sale in the clasifieds
Theyre around all the time. I sold one on here. Put up a wtb ad and see if somebody has one for sale
One of the first times I saw extra springs on a rest it was a JJ. Its owner also owned a high speed video camera.... Just about everything we use can be improved.
The JJ Industries link shows up as broken link, error message. Is this company still around? Maybe it's just an Internet error. It happens.

Can’t connect with JJ Industries. Thinking the are OB.
Too late for me, I already added the parts. I had never heard of the John Loh rest until this thread.
I see more of them out there than the sinclairs. Both seem to work well for that type rest
I bought it last year not long after I started shooting benchrest. It replaced a Caldwell Rock BR so it's a major improvement. The Rock never leaves my garage these days.
I've thought about the joystick top that Butch Lambert sells, but that would bring the price of the Sinclair close to a SEB with those improvements.
I'm just shooting club matches with no inclination to go further, so it works for me.
I have a few upgrades. One is the flexible ammo block that was added to the rest. Also included is a hard case and a bag block with a level. Not a mark on rest. If you are interested, you pay me for the NIB Sinclair Competition Rest 749-101-023WS @ $650 and you pay the shipping. I will include the front bag, hard case & the port level ammo block. No additional discounts available & no PayPal.
