The Edgewood Gaterbag Rear Bag is a long, heavy bag - about twice the length of the Original ( 6-1/2'" x 13-1/2") - the ultimate in stability. Filled weight can easily top 25 lbs. depending on body height. It features a padded top for resting the trigger hand and includes the same choices of ear combination as the Original. The Gaterbag has a multi-layered all flat base. Stitch Width refers to how far apart the "ears" of the bag are stitched to the bag body. 100% Made in the U.S.A., these bags are beautifully crafted in Edgewood, New Mexico.
The ears are sewn on slightly crooked to provide a right hand twist.

- If you find, after filling your bag or after the sand has settled, that your bag bulges on the bottom or rocks when on the bench try the following: Bang the bag flat down on the bench then gently slide it into place. Slapping the bag firmly onto the bench shifts the sand back up into the body of the bag and flattens the base of the bag. By pushing - rather than lifting - the bag into place, the bag will maintain that flat base.
- To fit a stock that is narrower or wider, use more or less sand to achieve a tighter - or looser - fit.
- Specifications are as close as the materials will allow.
