    Built this rack today for my AR-15. Would work with other compact long guns and I already have a second design in my head that will be more flexible for different size weapons.

    Holds two 16'' AR's or similar weapons (or any object that will fit in the mount). Benelli M2 would not fit (handguard extends too high), but I will build another version of the rack that will have some adjustability.

    Mounts to the headrest, goes on and off in seconds.

    I'd love to see more pics of the mount, how it attaches, etc. One of those on my passenger seat would be tits during deer and quail season!

    Pretty slick setup. Could mounting it with the magazine facing the back seats get two rifles in at the same time? Or does the handle hit the bottom of the rear seats?

    Canada sucks.. Not only can we not (easily) own an AR-15. We would be burned at the stake if we carried ANY firearm like that.

    I'm moving stateside.

    Don't move to California then, thats for sure. Just saying gun to a LEO here during a traffic stop would probably get you facedown on the road with a knee in your back and a gun to you head with backup on the way...or going to see Dark Knight Rises....to soon?
