Re: Atlas Bipods, worth the price??

How much does the Sierra weigh?

In fact, how much do they all weigh? They look pretty heavy, as in way over what the Atlas weighs.

Len:

X-Caliber weights are listed under their respective model photos. The one I ordered/received is probably 40 oz (base model is 49 but I had them shorten the legs, in the process removing two "donuts" from each leg). The associated rifle should come in at about 44#.

LRA - I don't have an appropriate scale to check. They can be reached at dkohnow@lraccuracy.com or contact XLR (Kyle) at info@xlrindustries.com .

Sierra 7 - as noted, I have yet to receive mine. Even then I won't have the appropriate scale to check. Suggest you contact them at info@Sierra7Bipods.com.

If weight is your primary concern, I'll let the suppliers speak for themselves.

Thanks much. And yes, I am looking for one to replace a Harris.

I would want it to weigh about a pound including quick release hardware.

Notwithstanding it comes in at 24.7 oz, you might want to consider the CF-LWSS from Star Shooter (Canada) - carbon fiber legs and the balance in aluminum. Plus, for me, triple handles plus a wheel. I may still order one just because they look so super slick. The associated image is here. The prices are in CND and they ship to the US (order the 30 oz model online but you will need to call for the 24.7 oz version, possibly too new).

If you find a functionally excellent bipod, with QD, at or under 16 oz, PLEASE pass the word.

The Atlas seems to fill the requirement from what I have read.

Len:

You are absolutely correct - 12.7 oz for the bipod and QD mount. Add a set of 3" extensions at 1.8 oz, total 14.5 oz. Incredible!

And plenty of implementation photos in their Gallery - including what appears to be a McMillan 50.

Now if they just had handles, rather than the bottom wheel, you'd have my order.

I think you have a winner!

Maybe the wheel can be replaced with a lever by you.
