  1. Rugged! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2018

    I had no idea how solid the PIG Saddle would be until I got it in the mail. You can tell that it's quality and the product was thoughtfully designed. I'm excited to use this for years to come!

  2. Improve your accuracy instantly 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Aug 2018

    I ordered the PIG Saddle (AKA PIG) for my Ruger Precision Rifle. Have now used it on every rifle I own. As long as you have a great tripod to mount to the PIG will instantly help you to stay on target and remove any wiggle you may have as you pull the trigger. It tightened my groups with every rifle.

    The quality is top notch. The "fit and finish" is A1.

  3. PIG review 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jul 2018

    Works for what I need. Have not tried the HOG saddle due to cost but the PIG works OK and the price is right. But the best part is the guy that runs the place. Forgot his name but you can tell he is old school.

  4. pig head 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jul 2018

    hi just received my pig saddle and it clamps and holds the rifle well quality and finish is outstanding . I have used its on a normal pro tripod and now have ordered a SLIK DX700PRO Tripod for it . I believe that it should be a complete rig if you want to have a stable platform . great product indeed .

  5. a must buy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th May 2018

    Initially, it was scary to purchase such and expensive unit. However, something deep down told me to avoid the cheap, plastic, waiting to break, tripods at the stores for this one.
    Once I opened the box, wow, was I amazed? The quality surpassed what I was expecting. I plan to carry the unit for an elk hunt this year. My son carries the rifle, I will hand carry this rig.
    Quality at Best, consider a Hog Saddle !

  6. OUTSTANDING! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2018

    This is an outstanding piece of gear. Paired with FB52 ballhead and 311 tripod, it's an unbeatable set-up. The quality of the products is surpassed only by their customer service!

  7. Works for Everyone 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Apr 2018

    Has held every weapon I've put in it exactly as advertised. (Resting naturally, canted, pivoted, etc.) I've put about 200 rounds while using this and it's held up and never lost grip once. (I'll admit, I assumed I'd have to re-tighten it after a few rounds.)

    Would highly recommend. It's a great platform without a ball mount and only bettered by one.

    A great tool to have so any setup/buddy can use it without the concern of any attachments.

  8. nicely made 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Apr 2018

    I’ve not played with any other types of these to compare but the pig saddle fit the budget. Seems very well made and does its job well.

  9. everything you need in a tripod rest 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Mar 2018

    Shipped out fast, and works as advertised. Love how easy it attaches to nearly any gun!

  10. Pig Saddle 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2018

    Was worried my McMillan A5 stock wouldn’t fit. I was amazed that the locking screw was a lot longer that it appeared. I suggest it for anyone who uses a tripod. The fit and finish is very nice and is of great quality.
