    I'm looking for a nice rifle vice, I have up to $75 for one. This will just be used on my work bench for cleaning, mounting scopes, things like that. Are the $30-40 Tipton ones worth it or should I step up to a better one?

    I use the cheap $30 gun butler.

    I don't and haven't needed anything fancier.

    I don't own any $4,000 guns either though so maybe that would make a difference.

    Seriously though, I've used it for everything from my .22's to my .308 hunting rifle.

    And it's very compact and easy to take to the range.

    That's the one I was looking at, just didn't want to buy it if it was flimsy. Thanks.

    I think the Tipton offers good bang for the buck. The Cabelas one looks like a good deal as well.

    My Tipton, with a butt vise, has been plenty sturdy for cleaning and light work, dremmel and the like.
