Look not further for a bipod
on July 31, 2010
Harris S-BRM bipod
The S-BRM bipod has the swiveling action (allows you to tilt the rifle 45 degrees each side to compensate for uneven terrain) and the leg-notches. What this means is you get spring-action leg ejection by pushing the button, then you adjust it using the notches. It also means you get a center adjusting nut to adjust the amount of friction for the tilt/swivel action. The "BR" designation means it is the shortest "bench rest" model available, with a height of 6" to 9".
When I mounted the S-BRM on an AR15 w/ a railed handguard, there is enough clearance to use either 20rd mags or 30rd mags, so it is perfect for the bench rest or in the field. I also installed the Pod-Loc which makes the swivel friction adjustment extremely easy, so I highly recommend a Pod-Loc with the S-BRM.
I also have a 1A2-L (9"-13" height, fixed) which is also well made. I bought a Shooter's Ridge Chinese copy of the 1A2-L and it literally fell apart after a few hundred rounds at the range.
Pros: Easy to use, shorter height for less tremor, lightweight
Cons: Should have come with the Pod-Loc from the factory, the leg notches aren't as easy to use.
Overall: 5/5, the bipod to use
