    True, but the Harris has a swivel stud build into it.

    So did the knockoff, but the built in swivel stud was about an inch and a half away from the stock. So, when shouldered, the edge of the bipod would ride on my shoulder....not very comfortable. Not sure if the Harris stud is closer to the rifle or not, but this new system solves most of the gripes I've had with all of my experiments so far.
