The name says it all for this bipod. The Universal Featherweight bipod is extremely light, because it is made almost entirely of polymer— to be exact, DuPont extreme temperature glass-reinforced polymer. Using the included parts kit, it will fit on just about every rifle that has either a Picatinny or swivel stud, including the vent hole on government M16 handguards. It does, however, leave something to be desired in the sturdiness department, and attachment isn’t the most solid. When rotating the rifle, there was very noticeable movement in the legs not seen in the majority of the other bipods tested. This is a light-duty bipod best used mounted to a .22 or other low-recoil rifle, but I am not sure I would chance it on my trophy hunt. It does offer a traverse feature and has a pretty good range of movement from side to side. This bipod is good for engaging multiple targets or moving ones. The legs are positive locking, so they won’t close up on you when you move the rifle around. At its $56 MSRP, there are better options, but a street price of around $30 makes it more attractive.
