The Lead Sled DFT 2 (Dual Frame Technology) provides shooters with the industry's best recoil reduction system and the versatility to fit virtually any shotgun or rifle, all built around a precision shooting platform. A key feature of the DFT 2 is the ability to slide the front cradle back and forth along the Dual Frame for optimal length adjustment.
Dual frame design disperses a maximum amount of recoil energy
18" of adjustment to fit rifles and shotguns of virtually any size
Holds up to 100 pounds of lead shot
The Lead Sled DFT 2 weighs approximately 24 pounds and is 30" long by 12" wide
Purchased last week, came in on Thursday, while assembling I noticed the ram is either milled on the wrong end or is tapped for a bolt on the wrong end. Tried to call Friday but help center is closed until Monday. Called and the associate was nice but not familiar with product. Sent picture of faulty ram and had to call back 6 hours later, he said that he was busy and had not looked at photo yet. He called be back about an hour later and I missed the call. He then sent me an email saying everything looks fine. The end of the ram with the bolt hole in it is not grooved to fit the hole with a key in it on the front cradle assembly base. Very frustrating, if this is not resolved tomorrow I will be returning it and purchasing a different brand.
I just bought the Lead sled dft. Very simple to assemble. Heavy duty and well built. Rifles sit on the adjustable rest to use for sighting in rifles and shooting Prarie dogs. Much more s stable than my previous gun rest.
Bought this mainly to sight scopes in with. Made my own lead weights in 10 pound bags. Some say difficult to assemble and I quickly realized if you raise the front rest all the way up, it is easy to get the bolts in. No brainer! Friend wanted to pattern his duck gun. This made it so easy. I have used it on every imaginable rifle and shot gun and very happy with it.
COULDN'T BE MORE PLEASED. MY WIFE WOULD HAVE DIFFICULTY IN ASSEMBLING IT, BUT ANYONE THAT CAN FOLLOW DIRECTIONS IN THE ORDER DIRECTED TO AND HAS JUST A LITTLE MECHANICAL APTITUDE WILL GET THE DF2 ASSEMBLED IN 20 MINUTES
My brother has one of these that I have used many times, so I bought one for myself for Christmas. I read a previous review about it being difficult to assemble. I had it assembled in 20 minutes with no issues. I guess it depends on your mechanical ability!!!
Purchased several years ago. Nice heavy rest. Easily adjustable. Add weight and reduce recoil. I read the past review, and I had none of those issues. Found it easy to assemble- just follow the instructions. I have the original Lead Sled, and still have it. It does not have the ability to add weight. I feel it is well work the money, and great for young shooters.
Bought this on sale at Cabela's this past weekend. What a waste of time and money. First, the sliding mechanism does not sit level on the two guide rods. Next, you have four screws that need to be screwed in from underneath the rubber barrel rest that you cannot access because the height adjustment wheel is in the way. There are two square metal pieces that need to be placed inside the rubber barrel rest and the screws need to be screwed in from underneath the metal stand that the rubber barrel rest sits on. I tried for about an hour to screw these in and finally gave up. Returning this to Cabela's this weekend. Don't waste your money!
