Re: Stainless Bipod

Question:

  1. Why would you want a "stainless" bipod.
  • heavy
  • Not much of a market for heavy bipods
  • Custom could be considered. One-off would be pricey
  • Aluminum would be more reasonable.
  • 20mg/day Celexa for two weeks would likely cure the condition.

Get an Atlas , If you can, hard right now for civilian. Black alum. then either paint with alum color paint metal looking type, even has a texture. Or just wire wheel the bipod or buff it for a polished or brushed alum. look , close match. Mines camo to match my rifle

Sorry for any confusion, I don't care what the material is I just am looking for a brushed metal look to match the barrel, can't seem to find one in that color.
