Real Avid has introduced a bench vise made exclusively for guns and gun tools. It allows the user to quickly reposition the gun being worked on to any orientation, without ever removing it from the vise. 

The base of the vise features an articulating ball and socket joint with the adjustable Speed-Cam Lever that applies pressure to the joint, allowing the vise and gun to be positioned and repositioned in any orientation the user desires. Although the amount of adjustable compression applied with the Speed-Cam to the ball and socket joint is substantial, an additional element has been added to the visecalled the Torq-Lok pinfor heavy toque applications. This removable pin intersects the ball and socket joint locking it into the base. The locking pin can be inserted every 90 degrees with the vise in either the vertical or horizontal position, and stored in the base when not in use.

“We did a soft launch on this product a couple weeks ago and were amazed at the vast number of military, gun manufacturers and law enforcement agencies that were jumping to get this new vise. These are people who work on and build guns for a living and the benefits were apparent to them immediately. That really confirmed for us we had created something revolutionary,” commented Chris Witte, director of marketing.

Another feature built into this vise is the Accu-Level leveling knob. This allows the vise to be tilted three degrees to either side for making micro adjustments when leveling guns for optics mounting, without ever having to remove or reposition the firearm.

The vise also comes with reversible Gun-Fit sleeves that can be installed or uninstalled with pins that lock them in place. One side features a high-density foam pad providing a compression fit to firmly grip cosmetic surfaces, while the other side is a rigid nylon with grooves to secure gun parts, picatinny and Arca Swiss rails, barrels, silencers and more.

Sold separately, the adjustable Smart-Fit AR15 Lower Vise Block and the Lug-Lok Upper Vise Block (available in two versions, AR15 and AR10) integrate seamlessly with the vise jaws and firmly lock into place. The jaw plates have a recess along the lip that matches the Smart-Fit side profile providing extra hold. The Lug-Lok holds firm with the help of the dual-purpose Gun-Fit pins that intersect the vise jaws, and eliminates slippage within the jaws when applying heavy torque to barrel nuts and muzzle devices.
