bi-pod mounting?

I was lookin at Russ M `s pic of that bull pup thingy...
the pod looks like it mounts on the top of that thing.
i would asume this lowers the center of gravity of the rifle.
seems like all our hunting rifles have them mounted on the bottom usually on the sling mount.
any pro`s or cons to this ? would it actually be better ? any one play with the idea or have one for LR?

Re: bi-pod mounting?

I have a Harris bi-pod that I've been using for the last 12 years and there are certainly times when I thought that it wasn't stable enough. I understand the wisdom of a lower center of gravity cause it certainly helps with with stability as does a larger foot print.

Sinclair International has new F-Class Bipod that looks really good for Prone target shooting. I wish I could get one, I really like shooting prone, but they are $200. They also don't fold, so they are useless for mountain hunting.

I guess I'll stick with my Harris for now.
