Yeah, that M14 video guy...

My Savage is all done but she needs legs now. It has two sling studs at the front of the forearm. It weighs 12 pounds empty but it has a blind mag and will only hold 4 rounds in the mag.

I plan on using this off a bench, in prone and out in the field during hunting season. I do have a Pic rail that I can put in place of the forward sling point, so that is an option.

I've never owned a Harris, but it seems maybe this would be an ideal bipod. But there are so many models, I just don't know which one to get and which one to avoid. I'm open to an Atlas too.

It weighs the same as my M14 does that I hunt with, so I'm accustomed to the weight and it doesn't bother me.



So if this were yours, which bipod would you get?

Tony.

Harris S-BRM if you want the less expensive bipod.

Atlas if you are ok with paying more and having something a little slower, but more solid.

The Atlas is solid choice.

With my customized 1998 Savage FP10 (.308) I went with a Parker-Hale copy although I have a bunch of Harris bipods in various sizes on hand.

Harris S-BRM with a Podloc is a decent bipod, and it's the first one I owned. I had up to three at one point, but I'm down to one now.

I have a handful of Atlas bipods. They work well for ARs, 22lr, and precision center fire rifles.

Atlas bipods seem flimsy to some uses, due to the inherent wobble designed into the legs. When one presses forward slightly on the bipod, bipod hop is reduced. Harris bipods are notorious for bipod hop on hard surfaces, such as benches. IMO Atlas bipods are more versatile in the field -- the legs can be angled forwards & backwards, and the legs can be weighted backwards without collapsing.

Okay. I'll install a Picatinny rail and drop the coin and get an Atlas. I've gone this far, I may as well go all the way.

I got my Atlas PSR yesterday. Fantastic piece of work!

I added a Picatinny rail from B&T Industries. I bought their insert kit which must be the same thing McMillan uses. Since my McMillan already had two sling studs, I reclaimed one and bored another hole for an insert and epoxied it in place.

I've also attached pics of my last bedding job. Although not noticeable, the front of the recoil lug is free-floated. I put a layer of tape over the front and sides when I bedded it.
