Greyfox is Correct. 3" extensions only.
Using this Bipod, even with extensions, shooting from a sitting position is limited to a few specific terrain situations. In general, it is more adaptable to prone position shooting. It is exceptionally steady, at any height, with the extensions in place. If you want a Bipod that will allow you to shoot in a sitting position this may not be the one for you. Having said that I still am very happy with my purchase. I realize and accept this limitation. Try one before you make your decision.

Re: Atlas Bipod Review

Where is the attachment for a sling? Didn't see one in the article pics.

Re: Atlas Bipod Review

RH300UM The attachment is via small picatinny rail. It mounts on the forearm of the stock. Take a look at the mount in the LRH Store on this site.
My McMillan A3 has two holes in the front with threaded inserts molded in the forearm. These 2 holes accommodate a mounting screw and a sling swivel stud. It is simple and exceptionally sturdy. I have mine set up with the quick detach model of Atlas bipod. If you are a hunter I highly recommend the quick detach.
Hope this helps.

From another thread;

About sitting, the outer legs have a ID of .50, which happens to be a common size for round stock, like wood or nylon dowel rods and aluminum bar. Soooo a motivated person can simply cut the round stock to length remove the standard rubber feet (push button) and insert the bar into the extended outer leg and now you have a custom height.

While not an option to buy, this is a viable solution. Hope this helps.

And for those that have flush cups this is an excellent design. It is the model I use in addition to the LW-17 bi-pod. I like the ability to easily and quickly remove this at times.

So I need 2 studs or holes? Not just one as with a Harris?

You can use the existing stud as one of the bolts to mount the rail on, the rear works well. Then put the Atlas pod in the front notch of the rail and attach the sling to the stud as you have been doing.
