The Edgewood Minigater Rear Bag has become the standard by which rear bags are judged on the firing line. With reinforced sides and a thick leather "donut" base, these bags hold their shape and provide the right support and smooth tracking, especially when shooting "free recoil". 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.Standard: 3-1/4"

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.
