Re: Atlas bypod

I have shot harris bipods all my life and was seriously interested when a new, sleeker looking, better mousetrap was supposedly created. I recently got to hold and mess with a harris S, GG&G, and Atlas all side by side and will say the harris and GG&G feel a lot more solidly built. They both had a lot less slack in the whole mechanism. The atlas looks as if it might be quicker to adjust height and panning than the other two, but for long distance shooting the extra slack in the mechanism really worried me.

For what its worth my favorite of the 3 was the GG&G with the tilt and pan feature and flat feet. at $210 (at a gun show) it didn't hurt as much as the $270 for the atlas.

But you know what they say about opinions.

    I bought the Harris S with the 9 inch length legs and so far I like it better than the old Harris, simply because of the "cant" feature that is built into it.. Also,
    $125.00 cheaper thanthe ATLAS..

    I'm just wondering how many of you folks that like the Harris load your bipod when you shoot.

    I'll agree with you about not being able to load a harris because its like trying to stand up on lubed ice that is why I was looking at the other bipods. The GG&G has a 45 degree tilt just like the atlas for loading situations.

    Every person I know who shoots on a Harris bipod load it, I just like to load it by relaxing my shoulder not digging my toes into the dirt and shoving my whole body forward, I get a much more consistent preload with the Harris!!
