Atlas Bipods, worth the price??

Looking for some insight from any of who that own an Atlas. I have several Harris bipods, that I do like but, I have been looking into an Atlas. Are they worth it?

From an engineering standpoint, the Atlas is about as good as it gets. In my personal opinion, the Harris is not even in the same league. Do yourself a favor and see if you can find someone close to you that has an Atlas. Take it in the field and use it. Then you will be happy to spend the extra money to buy one.

Re: Atlas Bipods, worth the price??

I recently switched over to the Atlas bipods and they are far superior to the Harris in my opinion.....I have used Harris for many years and will continue to use their 25C for sitting position but for prone the atlas is much more solid....in fact I just ordered a second one so I don't have to swap it amongst my different guns.

You definitely get what you pay for....I love mine!

The manufacturer's website indicates that the bipods are only being sold to the military due to a large order. Is that old information, and if so where can they be purchased?

Are you guys using the more expensive version with the ADM 170 S lever or the less expensive with the 2 screws?

The LRH Store will be offering the quick detachable, lever type in a couple weeks.

I am very glad to see the positive comments.
