Magpul Bipod

Diver43Diver43 Senior MemberPosts: 10,669 Senior Member
Magpul has a M-Lok Bipod that would fit a few of my guns without changing or adding anything.  I have never seen one in person or know anyone around here that has on .  When I asked a few fellow shooter they were all for me getting one and trying it out 
At just over 100 bucks, I dont want to buy one and find out its junk.  Anyone have or used one? Good or  Bad?

    I have been wondering about them as well.  It is not clear to me that I could switch to a different mounting system should the need arise.

    They have a few different mounting systems, I am not sure if they are all interchangeable, seeing mounts are sold separately I assume they are.

    Guess I am going to have to talk my co worker into trying one

    I have not used one. Didn’t even know there was one.

    Interesting. The stability will be in question until someone has hands on experience.

    Reviews online are good.  Talk about wobble being built in to lock position

    Intrigued.  Grew up on the Harris S-types, which are getting a little dated in light of more recent developments.

    Looks like Mag Pul has latched on to those developments at a significantly lower price point than a lot of the modern super-sexy's.  Quite possibly lighter too.

    My big question is if the legs only fold one way.  Their website isn't 100% clear on that.  Some advantages to being able to go forward or back.

    Between description and review videos for what they are worth. I believe they go forward only

    Cool.  Next question would then be if they'll fold up unexpectedly if you mount the thing backwards.

    OK Big,  Why would one mount it backwards?

    Cause he wants to fold it that way? Nice looking bipod.

    Cuz sometimes you want it more or less flush against the handguard to get a flat surface on your sandbags.  Sneaky sniper types might not want them folded forward so when they're snake-crawling dragging the rifle with a thumb through the sling, the legs won't snag.  Also keeps the center of balance farther back.  Heavy barrels being problematic enough in this regard.  Versatility, ya know.

    Found this on Amazon 

    What setup for a tikka t3x, mlok?

    This one is made for any m loc stock- as long as you have left room on the bottom for it. Nice solid bipod- have it on several ruger precisions. Can be put on to fold forward or backwards when collapsed.

    I've got a friend who has one. It works as advertised. It's not an earth shattering improvement over the classic Harris, but is a worthwhile consideration. 

    If I didn't already have a Harris bipod that floats between a few rifles, I'd consider buying one.

    I know Magpul isn't known for selling junk.
