Do they exist? Is there a decent bipod that is quick and easy to mount/dismount on my AR?

I've tried researching this but it's a little confusing, so I thought I'd ask the collective CG wisdom.

What bipod are you looking at?
With the harris bipod you can just get a quick release rail mount.

That's what I was hoping for, and was having trouble finding... I guess my Google Fu is weak.

Anybody got a particular one they like?

This might be what you are looking for:

You can use it with most any Harris bipod.

So it's pretty clear to me that Harris bipods are far and away the preffered unit, but I'm not entirely sure exactly why. (I'm pretty sure it ain't price:()

What are the attributes that make Harris so much better?

Quick, easy to use, everything you need, no stupid extra features, solid, reliable. A Harris S-BRM and a pod lock and call it done. (You get what you pay for)

Harris bipods offer the most utility for field shooting. The tilt feature with adjustable tension in particular is almost mandatory so you can level the rifle when shooting from uneven surfaces encountered in the field. For bench shooting, you can get away with a bipod that lacks that feature.

A less costly alternative to the Harris is the Caldwell XLA bipod. All the features of the Harris at about half the cost. It's not built quite as solid as the harris, but is plenty strong enough to work on an AR or rifle of similar weight and recoil.

Also, keep in mind that neither the Harris or Caldwell bipods are truly "Quick Release". You'll need a QD adapter when attaching them to a picatinny rail as they are designed to attach directly to a sling swivel stud. If you have a plain free float forend, you can simply run a stud for mounting them. On a railed forend, you'll need the adapter.

I have an Atlas bipod with detach. Pretty bad *****! Hard to blow the money, but I have no regrets. Plan on buying one more for a new hunting rifle.

Not sure why you'd think it isn't because of the price. The harris are popular because of the price and having a basic but solid set of features/options in a variety of configurations. If you want "better", you're talking about stuff like gg&g, atlas, etc. at $150+.
