Re: DOUBTS ON HARRIS BIPODS
I took a look at that bipod. the leg mechansim and the adjustment are just a variation on the tried and trusted Bren Gun bipod(as is the versapod) thats been around for well over a half century. I wouldn't mind trying the alloy version.
Ive used several bipod over the years. Ive used the Bren bipod on the LMG, it worked, ive used the one fitted to the GPMG ( M240?) ive used 3 stick self made sniper course type bipods, buffalo sticks, that horrible B square piece of junk, the enfield SA 80 LSW bipod (had that on a 243 stalking rifle also) several versions of the Harris.
The harris works, the Machine gun bipost where to wobbly and rackety and noisy for hunting rifle use. What i don't like about the harris i'm using HB25C-S is the fact that it is very difficult to operate the leg lock and pull the leg out with 1 hand. a notched, spring assisted deployment would make far more sense. Also the sod is just slightly too long when used prone in its shortest possition, what i would like is the HB 25 S but with notched legs.
whats this Rock bipod like for noise and wobble?
Alg if you need a new bipod, let me know.
