posted on January 2, 2019

The Ultimate Rail-Pod from CTK Precision is a stabilizing monopod that unobtrusively folds flat against its host buttstock when not in use, but can be deployed and locked in place with the push of a button. Machined from hard-coat anodized 6061 aluminum, the Ultimate Rail-Pod’s height is adjustable in two ways, resulting in a total measurement of 3.5" to 6.75". The spring-loaded Posi-Lock system has seven settings for quick, gross adjustments, while the unit’s threaded foot can then be rotated for fine alterations. The U.S.-made, 5.6-oz. monopod mounts to any one slot of Picatinny rail using a single screw. Price: $160. Contact: CTK Precision; (715) 754-2891;
