To make that per­fect shot, sta­bil­ity is key. Here’s the skinny on 11 bipod op­tions at var­i­ous price points.

My in­tro­duc­tion to bipods hap­pened al­most 30 years ago while I was still in the mil­i­tary. We were just field­ing the new M24 Sniper sys­tem, which came with a Har­ris bipod. Since that time, I have been a fan of at­tach­ing a bipod to a ri­fle for sta­bil­ity—not to men­tion that car­ry­ing a sand­bag around gets tir­ing. A bipod can as­sist a shooter, re­gard­less of dis­ci­pline, in get­ting sta­ble for that per­fect shot. The shoot­ing fun­da­men­tals of sight align­ment and sight pic­ture are made eas­ier with the as­sis­tance of a bipod.

Whether you are look­ing for more sta­bil­ity on your hunt or at the range, adding a bipod will give you a sta­ble plat­form. You might not need all the fea­tures that the Accu-Tac SR-5QD of­fers or the sim­plic­ity of the Grip Pod, but adding a bipod to your gun is a worth­while in­vest­ment that will pay off when you are send­ing rounds down­range.

With all the dif­fer­ent man­u­fac­tures out there, choos­ing the bipod best suited for you can be a dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion. There are many dif­fer­ent as­pects to a bipod that make it suited for dif­fer­ent forms of the shoot­ing sports. Here, we take a look at sev­eral dif­fer­ent mod­els ... and I stress that these are but a few of the dozens on the mar­ket. GW

There is a wide va­ri­ety of bipods on the mar­ket. Iden­ti­fy­ing the func­tional ar­eas that are im­por­tant to you will help you make the right choice. Left to right: ATI Uni­ver­sal Bipod, Black­hawk! Sport­ster Tra­ver­se­track, ZRODelta DLOCSS with Aimtech...
