I built one out of scrap plywood, poly batting, vinyl, thumbtacks, and an 8" C-clamp.
I use it for cleaning AND it is steady enough for me to install a scope and/or work on the rifle/shotgun.

I received my February Midway flyer today and they have the Tipton Gun Vise (#990-536) on sale complete with a free Tipton 12 piece solid brass cleaning jag set for 54.99. The vise itself usually sells for 69.98

The Tipton gun vise (http://www.midwayusa.com/rewriteaproduct/990536) is a very good item for cleaning and working on scopes, etc. It holds the rifle much steadier than a cradle. I bought one (Midway brand, but same one) several years ago and am very glad I did.
