Harris all the way!!!

I had a couple Parker Hale bipods when I first got into the game but they were so wobbly that it was hard to shoot small groups, I even had the locking PH bipod that was a joke to use because if you needed to cant the rifle the locking screw would just come loose and then it was back to wobbling city. The swivel harris bipods are all I use for my rigs now very stable platform to use.

Re: Bipods, (Harris or Versa-pod?)

I purchased an "all steel" versapod after going to a gun show and inspecting both bipods. The Harris looked "cheesy"... The advantage of the Harris is that it sits closer to the bore, and of course isn't loose like the Versa, and is probly easier to use... and is cheaper

Now to remount the spigot so it sits closer to the bore and to tighten the bipod up. About the only thing about the Versa-pod that bugs me now is the thick black paint that they used to paint it with. They painted everything before assembly and now at times the bipod is free then it sticks...

I like harris! again, very simple bi pod to use and looks good also. need to send it to Dura Coat in Columbus, GA there is a guy there by the name of Otto and he does a real good job and has many patterns and coatings to help it not be sticky.

You know, Harris Engineering is a helluva company. I do some freelance writing for some of the mags out there, and believe it or not, i've actually received 4 bipods over the years from the company as a thank you for mentioning their fabulous product.

Go with Harris. I tried Versa-pod and I can tell you it is of much worse quality than Harris. I dumped the Versa-pod in a hurry. Also, you can get excellent pricing on Harris at this dealer, Ron Shirk Shooting Supplies (717)272-5671, they advertise in shotgun news the following Harris models:

1A2BR $48.95, 1A2L $48.95, 1A2LS (swivel) $68.95, 1A2BRS $68.95. All prices are cash, credit cards 2% surcharge (although illegal according to policy of credit companies but they still do it). plus shipping. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
