SmartRest Racken Rest II Gun Rack

by SmartRest

The Racken Rest II is an Australian designed gun rest designed to hold a rifle on a vehicle window sill while driving the vehicle. It can mount to either sides of a vehicle door. The rest is capable of holding a rifle in place to keep the rifle firmly fixed in place. This means a shooter will not be required to repeatedly set up or remove a rifle every time he/she needs to take a shot. The mount has a swivelling capability for lateral and vertical movement. The tension controlled vertical and horizontal swivelling action has a range which is unmatched by any other rest ever developed for the doors of a vehicle. The arms are also telescopically adjustable for height and length to adjust for each rifle and shooter.


The Racken Rest II is used for accurate shooting while:

  • Shooting from a vehicle
  • Safe firearm storage while in the field

Advantages of the Racken Rest II:

  • Shooting accurately from vehicle: Less energy used to eradicate pests
  • Speed and accuracy: Eliminating the need to remove and replace the rifle while driving makes it extremely fast to get a shot off when needed. Also the ability to swing in many positions eliminates the need for the shooter to constantly readjust the vehicle if the animal moves from its position
  • Easy mounting technique makes it fast to mount and remove
  • Enhanced shooting positions: A shooter can easily shoot ambidextrous because of the great support provided by the design
  • Consistent Accuracy and easy to use left handed
  • Reduced or no recoil: The rest takes the impact of the rifle
  • Silent adjustability will not give away your position while setting up your shot
  • Fast and smooth elevation adjustments are done while keeping sight on the acquired target
  • The structure being made predominantly of steel is heavy duty

Racken Rest II Upgrades:

  • Included Double Swivel Mount: Now included as a standard issue
  • Sturdier build. Eliminating welding on key points has enhanced the weight bearing capacity of the swivels
  • Longer mid tube section: Allows more adjustments within the cradle
  • Extended Rear Arm: Longer extension arms allow for more adjustment for rifle positioning in the cradle and comfort for shooter adjustability
  • Ball Points Locators On the base: Provides a home position where the swivel arm is gently but firmly locked into position
  • An optional balance strut: An after sale item for heavy barrel and suppressor type firearms we have an option to attach a strut which helps bear the forward heavy weight of the firearm
  • An Optional “Lean to Pad and Brace”: An after sale item for shooters that simply want to shoot from a padded bar as a secondary option as opposed to fully mounted in the cradle
  • Off Set Arms: An after sale item for rifles with magazines we have developed a configuration that allows for large magazines and pistol grips
  • Strap Down Option: An after sale item to counter the talk of barrel interference and accuracy from strapping over barrel
  • New Colour and sleek looking design
