Sturdy and well-built from 6061-T6 alu­minum, the BT10LW17 V8 At­las bipod is ex­tremely light at 12.7 ounces. It uses an Amer­i­can De­fense Man­u­fac­tur­ing mount for quick at­tach/de­tach. Leg de­ploy­ment is done by a push but­ton, and the legs lock pos­i­tively at 90 and 45 de­grees, both for­ward and rear. They can be locked close to the front or rear, de­pend­ing on the user’s pref­er­ence. There is also a cant fea­ture (15 de­grees), as well as a tra­verse fea­ture (15 de­grees). Even un­der the weight of a Ruger RPR, the ri­fle did not tip at full cant. The legs de­ploy quickly and fea­ture grad­u­ated pre­loaded stops every ¾ inch. There was some play in the legs when fully ex­tended, and the tight­en­ing knob for the cant and tra­verse was awk­ward to ad­just and pretty stiff. Over­all, though, if you can af­ford it, this is an ex­cel­lent bipod for most ap­pli­ca­tions.
