I’m out on the difficult install 😂
@Brad I literally had to reverse engineer the damn thing. If you’re gonna manufacture a product in China, at least have someone send them a “copy and paste” instruction booklet..

Note to self on what not to buy for a back country hunt 😂
@Joshua haha, I had learned that you get what you pay for with boots and hunting clothes. This one tricked me by its price point. It’s the only thing I hate about buying online…..not putting a hands on a product first
I have this bipod for my FN police sniper as well as for my AR10. I would agree with your review of that for sure. There are definitely things I’d change and can see me investing in something more pricey in the future.
@James 👊. I think the design is great, but the selected materials were shortcut for profit margin.
@Mike I agree. I think I may look into the Spartan precision bi pods
@James me too. Harris has cut way back on quality too
It’s a cool picture tho 🤷♂️

You can get the basic Spartan for $150, bullet proof, pops on and off super easy, and one screw install! 😂
@Kevin hahaha, like the old Saturday Night Live skit, “it’s not how you feel, it’s how you look”
@Josh yeah…… I paid $72 for this one, should’ve doubled down….
@Mike hahaha exactly! Perception is everything
I use Caldwell xla on my rifles.
I use Caldwell xla pivot bipods on my rifles.

@Coyote this is a model up from that so if you’ve been happy, hopefully so will I.

I like them, as you probably know mine are only there if I need to go prone. Most my shooting is standing or sitting.

@Coyote yessir, I’ve actually never shot a game animal off a bipod, but this hunt has a big potential for longer shots than previous hunts. I just ordered 7 boxes of 20, 150gr Core Lokt to burn through this summer and be ready out to 600 yds. Hopefully the terrain will allow for going prone when I find a giant.

I just got home from shed hunting
I think it will be just fine but the Country your going into I’d look into a tripod and take as well It’s more versatile in steep terrain just my opinion.

@Robert good call. I’m borrowing a buddies tripod. It’s extra weight that I wanted to avoid, but more accuracy is worth it.
@Mike I shot my bull last year off a tripod dam glad I had it that day.
I want to get a set of primos’ trigger sticks. Even though I sit with my back against something with my knees up to rest my rifle on as a brace it’s be nice not to have to be all scrunched up.
@Coyote I have the sticks as well taught my 1st grandson to shoot off the sticks but still not a solid rest for shooting out 600+ yards imo. The bull I shot last yr. drop down into a bowl and I dropped in ahead of him pretty steep decline but the whole I was time setting up the tripod and getting my gun locked in I was watching the bull traverse in front of me. With that being said I have bipods on my guns I have the sticks but if I had to pick 1 tool it would be the tripod over the others. I know each guy or gal has their own preferences but this is mine.😉
I would only use the sticks coyote hunting and when I hunt coyotes I try to get them as close as possible. I only have to worry about shooting 1 coyote past 200 cause I can’t have dad with a further coyote than me 🤣
@Mike definitely something to think about are you going in alone? And you know you will be coming out with a lot more than your going in with right👊🍻
@Robert my 21 yr old son is coming with me, but I’ll have the only tag. He’s been wanting to tag along his whole life and we’re both stoked! It’ll help having him to split the weight of packing in and more so packing out. I’m gonna try to keep our weight down as much as possible. I’ve always base camped in a wall tent not far off of trails. This is gonna be my first wilderness adventure where the whole time is so far in and only what can be carried. I’m already worried about leaving my truck for 8 days, haha. Not because I’ll need it, but damn thievery. I’m literally planning things out every day already. This summer I’ll do some trial runs and see what I come up with
@Mike glad to hear your not going in alone alway nice to have company. I would set a trail cam at the truck just in case. I gotta pretty cool meat pack with a gun sleeve in it I’ll send a pick in the AM if you want to use it I will throw it on UPS for ya.
@Robert I’ve been looking at different packs, I’ll watch for the pic 👍👊
@Mike 👆it had a hydration bladder also but I took it out has a lot of storage. Probably get on their website and see more details than these pics show.
@Mike it’s still AM at my place🤣🍻
@Robert 🤣. Time zones can be a bitch, haha. I might take you up on borrowing that and would cover the shipping costs. You could buy a good rifle for the cost of most packs. We’ll see if my finances can handle the addition to my permanent arsenal and I’ll let ya know💪👊. Do you know which model that is and how much it weighs empty?
@Mike I gotta run to town quick when I get back I’ll see it I can find a model.
@Robert no worries, thanks bro👊🥃
@Mike I’m assuming this might be the model
@Mike it weighs 5#
@Mike I want the bipod trigger stick.
@Mike tie a piece of cotton rope to a leg as a sling and put it across your back. Felt pens will camo the rope.
@Robert thank you sir, I’ll let you know!👊
@Coyote haha, I’m not that tough. I’m expecting each load to be close to 100lbs between camp, rifle and meat.
