Re: Bipods?

Buy a Harris bi-pod. The prices vary depending on the model and extension but you're looking north of 50 bucks.

Re: Bipods?

Harris has been the go-to for many,many years. I have never used bipods much, but I see more Harris on guys rifles who I respect than any other.

Re: Bipods?

Nothin' but Harris bipods here, some going back to the late 70s.

Would still have all of my original notched-leg Harris bipods, but swapped a few to some buddies, when Harris briefly only made the "thumb nut" adjustable ones. My buds hated them, didn't bother me at all.

There are now ChiCom knock offs for a bit less money, that are nearly identical to the original Harris bipods. But I don't own any.

Pretty much any bolt rifle capable of doing a long shot, will have a Harris on it during deer season. A few ounces of extra weight doesn't bother me in the woods and I might wind up out along an edge during the day and need the bipod?

It's happened a few times over the years, so the Harris goes on and stays on.

Re: Bipods?

I put a Harris Bi-pod on my sons .243 this year.It works great on level ground but you really have to set up in the right place for it to be usable.I personally think a trigger stick works better.

Re: Bipods?

Can you still use a sling or does it use the sling stud?
