I don't like bipods. Except on a LRPR or a Barrett. For run & gun with a 556 or in CQB they just get in the way.

i Really like LRA bipods for precision rifles. I occasionally use them on my ARs for longer range work just because a it’s easy to move with the qd mount. In general I don’t use bipods on ARs though.

Atlas is made really well, but I didn’t like how loose the panning was even when tightened all the way down. That being said it is much easier to load than the Harris.

Harris is simple and effective, but doesn’t have panning ability if that’s what your looking for.

I prefer Atlas. I can afford Harris. I don't like them on anything smaller than a 18" SPR, even then I'm meh.

I haven't enjoyed any style bipod on platforms smaller than 7.62

Also for most standard weapon systems - I've found that anything beyond a smooth rail or maybe even the little magpul "stub" just gets in the way and catches on gear/other shit. I think you're better off with a good quality sling (V-TAC) and optic.

I have a Harris w/ Upriserarms pan. If I am static or on an ambush hunt I may use a bipod. The pan not at all. Why weight. Extra crap makes carrying for long range a pain in the ass. I try to shed anything not really needed.388DF150-F42F-439A-9475-3D28AE9358B0.jpeg3252792F-8B15-4412-9DD0-5A25CB76E581.jpeg43F6035C-C8BB-475A-ABA6-F44E010B294A.jpegCCC414C8-9EE0-4579-821F-92F7B7AD3C82.jpegD97FB6A9-E69D-4F2A-BD77-8E140718328E.jpeg

Finishing up an AR build and was going to get the old Harris S-BMR bipod that I've used for years. I came across some other brands and would like to know if any members have any experience with them.

Atlas Bipod

Accu-Tac

Any other recommendations are appreciated.
Why do you need a bi-pod?
I have one on a Remington 700 and another on an AR I use for hunting hogs.
