Please share your experiences with the various bipods you have used.

Good, Okay, CRAP?

I'll edit this post to add the various bipods people recommend or to stay away from.

On an AR, I really enjoyed the Grip Pod, military model.

Even though its UTG its still a decent bipod and honestly you cant beat the price. I have one and it does the job just fine. If you break it (which i dont think you will unless you put it through some rough abuse) just buy another one :rolleyes:

I like the Bobro and GG&G bipods, top notch stuff.

+1 on the GG&G, I had one and it was solid. I'd really like one of the Atlas bipods, but they are expensive and hard to find.

The best bipod for the money is a Harris with a nice rail attachment, like the AD or LT for quick detach, or even the YHM to save a few bucks.

I would go harris with adaptor as said above.

GRIP PODS ARE THE UGLIEST THINGS EVER!!!!!!!!

Harris is great. I have one in a AD mount. There's a good reason why Harris Bipods are the standard of the industry. I also use a VLTOR which works well too.

I've used both the harris and now use the Atlas V8. The Atlas is much better!

Love the Atlas with the ADM mount V8.0...my first choice and have a few of them, but as mentioned above, they are pricey (even relative to the Bobro/GG&G stuff, but cheaper than an RND or LR Accuracy bipods which can be greater than $500 / piece).

Of all the bipods I've tried I like the GG&G best.

Does anyone's Harris loosen up on a LaRue mount?

It keeps loosening up for me after shooting.

Latigo are the legs spring loaded at all? On the gg&g one that is.

I like the EMA tactical bipods. Each leg has 4 adjustments to use on uneven surfaces.

GG&G are not spring loaded but Bobro bipods are.

Nope. I'm not sure if they make one that is. Sure works great.

Larue and Harris combo is my favorite. I'll eventually try an Atlas as I have heard great things. I didn't like the Vltor bipod and sold it quick. It is slow to deploy, hard to adjust compared to others, no swivel, and huge.

I had that on back order for some time at 2 sep places it is NEVER in stock anywhere. So I decided to use my crappy walmart one off my .22 until it comes back in stock. I was super excited for it but it seems they can't even produce enough to sell........

The GG&G and Bobro bipods have a cant feature so you don't need to adjust the legs for uneven surfaces (you could deploy the legs at any setting between min and max if you wanted to). The Bobro has a QD lever to take it on/off the rail and the GG&G has a thumb screw. The GG&G requires the press of a release lever to deploy and fold the legs while the Bobro is spring loaded to be able to just pull the legs down and requires the push of the lever to fold them.

Harris is the way to go, as someone else stated above "It's the industry standard"

I was lucky to find one on here for under $100. I had never heard of them but bought it because the style resembles the tangodown bipod. I'm happy with it however they could improve on the rubber claw and replace it with a metal one.
