Bill, here are the pictures of the Hayes rest. You will need to add your comments as to description since I don't know much about them.

The rest is solid Stainless Steel except for the handle on the left side and the ,I believe the bronze or bronze alloy disc in the mariners wheel. If you look closely you can see it. Also this picture of the rest is missing the 2 aluminium flaps that fit inside the upper bag holder. Those screws on each side of the holder fit into the flaps so when you put the front bag in, set the rifle in it allows you to tighten the bag around the rifle. If Rick puts in the picture of mine you will see the complete setup, hint, hint. The rest weights about 25lbs with harden points. No, there is no windage top and the cost does not include shipping. Gary has made about 30 of these rest now and he makes some real spectacular rests for the 1000 yd boys.

Here is the scoop from Gary

Gary Hayes Pedestal
 
All parts of this rest are hand made from 304 stainless steel.The legs measure 1.375 diameter x 7 inches log and bolt to the main hub using 3/8 socket head cap screws. The main hub is 4” diameter x 3” high. There is a inner bushing for the primary elevation and a mariners wheel for fine secondary adjustment. The top comes with a front stop and has aluminum side tensioning plates not shown in photos. The leg adjusters have pieces of high speed steel inserted into the ends of the threaded rods to help against wear on the concrete benches. The composite lock handle is fully adjustable for rotation to suit your hand when locking any vertical adjustment. No one has ever contacted me to say they can’t get low enough , and there is a ton of vertical adjustment built into this pedestal.
I also put a 1” thrust bearing under the mariners wheel for ease of lifting the gun to its final height.
Many shooters say that I should be charging a lot more for these rests but it was only ever intended to cover my shooting costs for the season. I know |Allied Machine on BR central are making an exact copy of my rest for $687. USD
The shipping box is made from ¾” plywood and weighs approx. 34 lbs.
They can be ordered for left and right hand shooters, and custom orders are considered. Some guys want a different thread or a bigger main hub or larger legs, just remember you have to carry it, OK?
Price as of this writing is $500. USD plus shipping. I have enclosed 2 photos also.
Feel free to e-mail or phone if you have any other questions and thank you for your interest.

Bill

What bag do you have on that Hayes rest in the picture?

Back about 5 years ago Sinclair's gave me that bag to try out and see how I liked it. As you can tell it is still on the rest.
Page 136 of their new catalogue, Part #BAG28  $17.95 Cordura except for the bottom and flaps
http://www.sinclairintl.com/prod_detail_list/Front-Bags
On their website it is called Protekor #3
Hope this helps
