Never had a problem with Harris bipods. I used them in the army and they lasted so I didn't see the need to go with anything else. I like the Harris models with leg notches and the ability to pivot personally.

Thanks from gunny8940 and trigger643

I have adapted a Harris 9-13" using a QD swivel stud and loved it so much, all my M14 rifles wear that config. Some have a rail but there's a QD stud tapped on it for the Harris. Super lightweight, the legs pop out quickly and securely but best of all no bounce during recoil. My Tango and Command Arms found use on other more plastic rifles.

A Very Recent Thread On The Subject:

http://m14forum.com/bolt-action/114460-bipod-help.html

I have several Harrises, even the latest swiveling, pivoting, lockable...

I 'moved up' to a GG&G Extreme Heavy Duty Bad-Ass Bipod!

Now, other guys here who actually Have or Had the GG&G say the ATLAS...Is...Even...Better!!! To Me, THAT'S A TESTIMONIAL!



So, Next Time I'm In The Market...I Am Definitely Gonna Look At An Atlas!

I have both a Harris and Atlas bipod for my M1A... but I prefer the Atlas one because it operates without external springs.

If you operate within a jungle/dense terrain zone then Atlas is the bipod to use for it has far less "catching" surfaces than does a Harris bipod.

I use a Harris right now but I will take a look at the Atlas. Also have a nice GG&G heavy duty that's nice but I like the Harris off the bench because it does not swivel or cant.

Did not see anyone suggesting the original GI issue bi pod and just wondering is there a reason it is not one to use?? I know they are somewhat scarce/pricey but by using one and the way they attach to the GC do they hurt accuracy??

It will affect POI rather than accuracy (your shots will all be in the same place, just not where you intended them to go unless you compensate when aiming) as pressure is now being applied to the barrel. I would never use a bipod mounted directly to a barrel or a fixture attached to the barrel.

I recently put a Atlas on my Savage with a AFAR adapter and even though I have not been to the range (outta town on business :( ) I am really looking forward to getting back so I can go, this thing is built like a tank and I have a Harris BRM S 6-9" on my M1A Scout it does not even compare to the Atlas I looked really hard at the GG&G XDS 2 but in the end chose the Atlas and glad I did, only trouble I had was getting one but Steve from Triadtactial hooked me up.

I just bought a new SA M1A and I would like to add a bipod. Atlas seems to be the consensus. Do I need a rail for the Atlas bipod? If so, which rail system is the best. Thanks, Tom
