As someone who likes to work on the occasional AR-15 I was eager to try out the Rail Vise, the flagship product for Rail Vise Technologies, to see if it would make maintenance work easier. In the past I’ve cleaned and worked on rifles while they sat on the workbench on a towel, held in a rubber-padded vise or just holding it in my hand even. This was always risky as if you weren’t careful you could scratch the finish on your weapon. If you also find this to be a bit of a sub-par situation then you will likely agree with me that with the Rail Vise this is now a problem of the past. It is strong enough to support almost any AR but it does have limitations in how much energy it can handle so maintenance is limited to cleaning and basic modifications.
