Can anyone tell me as to whether this interesting and unusual vice ia a gunsmiths vice?
Dawn Australia Made Vice | eBay (http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/221211465587?_trksid=p5197.c0.m619)
The seller maintains that it was made by Dawn!? It is certainly very well made, but surley if Dawn had made it they would have based it on one of their fabricated vices and besides ALL Dawn vices are painted red! I'm not bidding as I can't justifiy the price against how often I would use it, But if it is a gunsmithing vice a gunsmith may look at it differently!

It has the DAWN logo cast in the side of the vice

Looks like a custom modified unit to me.

A gunsmith vice is nothing special it is just a vice used by a gunsmith

You can get special barrel vices, but the one in the link isn't one on them.
