Gun Vise

I have been looking for a rifle vise to hold my rifles when I work on them. Most of the gun vises I have found are more for holding the gun for cleaning not much else.Most are plastic and the reviews of those that bought them are not very good.
I have a few rifles I need to be held so I can drift the front and rear iron sights out of them ( old eyes) .
Anyone here got any advice on some that are better made not as flimsy plastic.

For drifting sights I lay the firearm on the carpeted floor and tap tap tap. If I want to remove one I give it one medium but firm blow.

Thank you the floor will be even cheaper. It hard learning these things without the help I have gotten on this forum. This is my favorite forum for getting answers.

If I need to do it while at the range I just lay it across my lap or I sometimes take a sample carpet with me. I had a couple samples that I used for years but they somehow got lost or left behind.

I usually lay the gun ion my lap for tapping sights right and left or for removing them from the dovetail. Works most of the time, but sooner or later, you will get a gun that needs more convincing to work on the sights. Then I support the gun/action on wooden blocks and break out the heavier hammer. The absolutely worst gun sight I've ever had to remove was the front sight on a couple of Ruger 1022s. If I ever have to do one of those, again, I will invest in a sight puller.

I've thought of getting one of the adjusters but tapping seems to work fine for me. On the M'sL that I added the front globe sight to I was able to guess at being centered and then fine tuned the adjustable rear peep and raised it slightly. When I shot it in the rain I was within about two inches. I was amazed I got it that close just by eye-balling it.
