GRIP POD GPS-V2
CONSTRUCTION: Polymer handle and polymer-covered stainless steel leg inserts
HEIGHT: 8.25 inches, deployed
WEIGHT: 7 ounces
ATTACHMENT: 1913 Picatinny rail
Made of polymer and super lightweight, the Grip Pod GPS-V2 quickly attaches to a Picatinny rail. With a single push of the activation button, it deploys to give you an 8.25-inch bipod. It’s a little loud when deployed, and you have to make sure there is enough room for it to open completely. I found that if this bipod made contact with the ground when opening, it had to be manually pulled fully open. This is not a big deal, unless you are in a hurry. When fully opened, it provides enough clearance under the rifle to accommodate a 30-round magazine—but only when aiming the rifle to an elevation of about 10 to 15 degrees. When closed, it serves as a vertical grip, but because it doesn’t fold flat like the other bipods, if you need to be in the prone position lower than 6 inches, the grip would prevent that. The GPS-V2 is simple in design, with no cant or pivot, but it works well for its intended purpose.
