Bipods

I have a couple of Harris bipods that see a lot of use. I stumbled across another brand, Shooters Ridge; they appear to be very similar to Harris but are significantly less expensive. Any opinions or experience with this brand?

Re: Bipods

I use one on my VLS, and while its not a Harris, its not terrible. But you do get what you pay for in the end. I have Harris on my other rifles and when I remember 2, I'll replace the Outers one. I meant to a few weeks ago but got sidetracked buying ammo [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] Come to think of it, the only reason I got this copy was because Gander didnt have any Harris in stock, and I needed something seeing as all my other rifles would also be in use the next day. I didnt want to keep switching Bipods from others rifles thruout the day. Its been a year and I havent replaced it yet *sigh*

Re: Bipods

Ditto jb1000br. I asked this same question to some sporting store staff and one said his lasted 5 hunting trips before it started failing.

Re: Bipods

Well I'll be damn'd [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Looked at what I have, don't recall brand name but a quick search revealed "Made in China". That erks my nerves [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

So Harris aren't made in China?

That settles it, in my book [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]
