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

I got this as a birthday present. My brother-in-law (bless him) told my wife I would need it for my trip to SD to shoot prairie dogs. This thing is built like a tank and attaches very firmly to my AR-15 and my Browning A-bolt. I haven't tried it on anything else yet, but I have no doubts about it.

Pros
- Rock solid.
- Looks awesome.
- Has built-in 3-axis pivoting. The range of motion isn't huge, but it's nice to have it there.
- Spring loaded legs extend with a single touch.
- Nice rubber pads to protect your stock.

Cons
- Heavy
- Takes a little while to attach/detach.
- Kinda big, so it might not fit in your case while attached to the rifle.
- A little noisy to work with, so don't think you can fold/unfold or extend/retract the legs without spooking close game. Or just be extra careful :)

If you're looking for a serious bipod that can take abuse, this is the one.

Fits my Sig Sauer SSG 3000 rifle with no adapters. Installed in moments. Works great. This is the right kind of BiPod. The sling swivel can be attached to the BiPod so if you want to still have the sling attached - you can. 5 stars, Can't go wrong with Harris Engineering, and it is made in USA.

i am now the proud owner of three different models of harris bi pods most reciently the 6-9" swivel, and for years before that, a standard none swivel model.while the none swivel/hinged bi pod is great i have been sorry for Years that i did not buy the swivel type,one thing you need to know is those bi pods that look like harris at half the price get a one star I have been told. I did take a look. you get what you pay for.By going thru amazon I got a premium swivel bi pod for the same price as a standard bi pod locally.the pod that works best for me is the 6-9" next best is 9-13" (shorter works better). they mesure from the ground to center boar. p.s. if they make better/more expensive i dont need it.GOOD STUFF !militaries of the world and police use this brand. A WORD OF CAUTION- DO NOT leave the bi pod mount screw tight while on the gun in the gun cabinate this put a twist in the forarm of a premium stock that caused pressure on the side of the barrel.if this happens try removing the bi-pod, some times the stock will straighten itself in a couple weeks....have fun.

Hands down the best bipod for the money. I'd recommend getting a KMW pod lock for quick adjustment of the swivel tension. I would have given 5 stairs Harris included a pod lock with each bipod. The 6-9 Inch BiPod works best for bench rest/table shooting. If you're looking to shoot from the prone position I'd recommend going with the 9-13 inch legs.

Love this bipod ... had hard time deciding on how long the legs should be - do I only shoot from the bench or do I get a little longer legs to shoot from sitting position???? The Harris bipod connected (installed) very easily - looks and feels very strong & durable. Harris bipod installs by pinch-gripping the sling nipple on the rifle stock, (no drilling or complex mounting procedures). Can be simply and temporarily removed by thumb-wheel adjustment screw and sling nipple-pinch holder (30 seconds - on/off ... wouldn't do this often). Adds a bit of weight to the front-end of the rifle - but still is very nice. Have the Harris bipod mounted to a Marlin .308 with the heavy 26" barrel - does not jump to the left or right when fired. No noticeable jump or lift from ground or bench, straight back recoil & recovery – tight shot group!
If you have a rail system (picitinny or weaver) on the bottom of your military style rifle you may wish to concider a Rota-pod adapter as well. No rail system - no adapter required!

I have one of these in the 9-13" height. I use it exclusively on the bench so far, and find the swivel to be unnecessary to that purpose. The swiveling action is also damaging the finish on my Bell & Carlson stock, because the forend is too broad and flat to properly accommodate the bipod mount.

I ordered the version with the solid base recently, and don't expect to find any problem with it. The basic function of the S-LM seems to be very good, and I have found nothing wrong with the workmanship. It's a good bipod.

Of course, I also have $40 Winchester bipod which is likely a Chinese knock-off of some Harris model, and I have not had any trouble with that either. The Harris is a bit lighter, and has self-ejecting legs with leg-notches The cheap copy has not shown signs of breaking, or even loosening up after substantial use on different guns.

This Harris Bipod is well constructed and provides a nice stable platform for both my AR-10 and Remington 700. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that the knob that locks the swivel action is too small and hard to lock down with one hand.

Harris bipods are what you think about when you think about a firearm bipod, they set the standard. I've used them the world over. There are 'nicer' bipods, ones with more features and tougher. But they are the perfect mix of weight, functionality and price and that is why you will see them attached to guns around the world. I've used them continuously over the last 20 some years including my entire military career. They have never let me down and Harris upgrades and updates as they need to. The S-BRM model swivels slightly allowing you to adjust for uneven ground which is great. The tension nut is about useless though and PodLoc makes an excellent replacement for around $15. I've found the 6-9 to be the most useful all around model, that may vary if you are shooting over tall rocks, grass, etc on a constant basis. Another upgrade I use is a rail attachment. I use an ARMS mount and LaRue also makes a top notch mount. This allows me to use one bipod on every rifle from AR15 to Accuracy International bolt gun.

I heard I had to buy a Harris Bi-pod, because it was the best. I'm not entirely sure that's true. The release buttons work tenuously, and folding the bi-pod down is sometimes a dangerous proposition. There's no quick release functionality, which is something I had seen with other bi-pods I was looking at. If I were to buy another, I'd get one that expands beyond 9", too, since 9" just doesn't seem to be enough height at the range. That said, it does the job and it's well-built.
