Magpul Bipod.... now shipping

Been curious since I first heard about them. Started shipping yesterday with a variety of mounting options.

I clicked the buy button on an M-LOK version for my Rem .308 with Magpul Hunter Stock.

Good vid with some funny...




I'll be replacing a Harris SBRM.

Looks nice, and at a moderate price.
I have a couple Chi-Com bipods, and the best part about them is they're cheap. They're better than no-bipod or the hood of your pickup, but you wouldn't want to have to use them for anything more than playing. Might have to look into one.

Saw them. Nice. We need competition with Harris and Atlas to get some prices down a bit.

Quite a bit different than the Harris 6-9in S-BRM. The Harris was stiff making preload near impossible. Magpul allows significant movement for preload. Also a lot of free pan movement (via legs) even with pan mechanism locked.

Took it to the range. Leg movement allowing for better preload vs the stiff-legged Harris is a big improvement. Bipod jump suffered with the Harris is gone. With pan in the locked position, the L/R free leg movement goes away when preload is applied. All around great bipod for my use. Those who want a solid stiff bipod absent preload will not like the Magpul bipod.

Took it out the other day. Three shot .5MOA (center to center) is about as good as this half blind old man can to with his budget build. Very satisfied.
