    Default Gunsmithing Vice?

    Can anyone tell me as to whether this interesting and unusual vice ia a gunsmiths vice?
    Dawn Australia Made Vice | eBay
    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!

    Looks like a custom modified unit to me.
    Those were the droids I was looking for.

    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.
    Cheers.
