While shooting my EV2 Tom pointed out that I seemed to be straining to pull myself down to the gun while it rested on my knee/elbow, I tried adjusting everything but couldn't seem to fix the problem. I finally realized it was because the butt-pad was not coming down far enough, so I had to stretch to make up the difference. I took a look at the butt-pad and came up with a solution, I also made a design change and went with tapped holes versus that sliding locking plate, it is very annoying :|

So, I took some dimensions and stayed late after work on the CNC 8)

Thanks guys, and that means a lot coming from you Supr :drinkers:

I am very pleased with the extra adjustment it offers, now the gun truly does fit me like a glove 8)

The guy on afternoons is gone this week so I should be able to squeeze out a few more parts, I just need to design them first :) :lol:

Nice work. I've been working a bit on my position since the Nats, and found several areas where I need improvement.

There's lots to the way you sit and hold the rifle; the best thing I've learned is that after sitting in your position for 5 minutes non-stop, if there's certain areas that are sore/strained, you don't have the best position. Think of yourself as the 'platform' by which your rifle rests on. Changing your POA should be done via changing your position, not by changing the hold of your rifle to aim it on target.

I struggle with this all the time. I swear some days I sit down and everything just naturally lines up, then other days I can never quite get comfortable and steady.
The adjustability of the EV2 certainly helps set up the rifle in a way that it sort of "guides" you into a good seated position. Great job again Joel of making that beauty fit you better.

That looks like beautiful work! I've just ordered a wokkbut for my Talon to get a better "fit" - this looks just as good if not better as what I bought. :D
