We have two of them that we use for prairie dog hunting and occasionally coyote and target shooting.

All-in-all and pretty nice bench.

Biggest complaints is the length of the top. If it was about 6" longer it would be more compatible with a front rest and rear bag. As it is, you almost have to shoot diagonal across the it. The 360* swivel though is awesome and we've taken a lot of dogs because of it the last 2 trips.

Overall quality is pretty good too. I'm a big guy and it holds my weight no problem. If you want me to take any pics of specific areas or features, let me know and I'll send some over.

Would it be possible to modify or replace the top to provide extra room for a front rest and rear bag? If so how difficult do you think it would be?

The top is a mesh metal setup so I think it would be pretty easy to bolt in a piece of plywood right on top of the existing setup with a longer base.

A buddy of mine's dad did this for our trip last year and it seemed to work very well for him.
