So, I am starting to see their will be a considerable amount of more $$ in adding one.

Pod
Quick attach
Leg extensions
Pic rail

Am I missing anything?

So what would be a good online price for all except the rail? I feel the rail may differ a bit from rifle to rifle. I believe NF offers one that can be machined to fit.

I just ordered this rail from Triad(and an Atlas bipod). It uses the double swivel holes on many rifles. The nice thing about it is that you can use a swivel stud on the back end. A button head screw is used for the front. Just have to make sure you get the right length. If you don't have dual swivel holes on your rifle they sell the kit for $5. The short one fits my Rem 700 Milpec stock, the long one, my McMillan A5.

The Atlas pods are the best their is, handsdown......IMO.

I have a Harris, but have used an Atlas before. Solid is an understatement. A bunch of accessories, too.

Thanks for the kind words. I have been the Harris 9~13 swivel with a pod lock. I should also say I have no complaints, but will always look for a more stable platform if one is to be found. Rock solid is where it's at.

Re: Atlas Bipods, worth the price??

Len, I will wait on you too. Are you going to have the leg extensions and rails too?

I have been just fine with the Harris but I am excited to try the Atlas. I know one thing for sure, if there is a change in stability I will notice it right off. I have 1000's of rounds off the Harris. Looking forward to this.

Jeff
