This project is a red oak rifle display for either on a fireplace mantle or shelf. It can also be used at the range on the bench to hold the firearms not in use pointed safely downrange. It breaks down easily for transport by the use of keyed tenons. It has a slot on the on the top left leg to support a lever action rifle. This rack was designed for my fathers Henry lever action, CVA Plainsman muzzle loader and an old Stevens Visible Loader Pump, not like my hardware but I do enjoy shooting the classics.

Great idea! I need several stands like that to hold finished gunstocks in my shop. Right now they are stacked like cordwood against the wall. Thank you for the idea. Guess I’ll make a template for the parts first, I know one stand won’t be enough.

Nice! Is it your design? If so, you could probably sell these customized to the long guns your customer shoots. possesed.
Thanks for posting.

I did an image search and came across many but this one stuck out the most to me, so I cant claim it to be my own personal design. I did tweak it a bit for the rifles it was going to display. Most horizontal gun racks don’t have a slot for a lever action rifle so the owner must tip them upside down to fit. It measures about 13” high and 27” long. Thank you for your comments and viewing.

Great job! Been looking for a way to rest my gear but you’re right-most racks would force me to put my lever actions upside down. Nice design. Really like the keyed tenons. Now I’m gonna have to build one! Thanks for serving! Semper Fi!
