By Rusty from USA on 2020-08-04 15:32:12

Things I liked:

Nothing , besides the fact I only ordered 1 but received 2 in different boxes lt does not lock . It is terribly made . Right now it is an expensive paperweight . Also I have called 3 times with no answers or call backs . You are fast losing a customer that has spent 3 to 4 thousand dollars in the last 6 months .

Things I would have changed:

Make it where it will lock tight and hold my Impact up like bipods are supposed to !

What others should know:

Beware of the quality !

    Things I liked:

    This works great for me shooting from a bench. I recommend anyone to purchase this if you bench shoot. It takes a minute to adjust for different angles, I shoot into a hillside so some targets are higher than others. It is a solid rest.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing, it works well.

    What others should know:

    I like plain sand bags a little better but this bipod is a great option to have. I'm lucky to have my own range and keep sand bags set up. Visiting other ranges is when I use this bipod.

    Things I liked:

    It's my first Bipod ever so your mileage may vary. It's very adjustable and seems pretty solid so far on my Avenger.

    Things I would have changed:

    The adjustments are a bit harsh all the way around and the "Fine-tunable Adjustment Lever" is really not "fine-tunable" at all it's barely-tunable at best.

    What others should know:

    Honestly after typing in the "Things I would Change..." space, I wanted to rate this a 3 star but for some reason I couldn't. That's an honest rating, 3 stars...

    Things I liked:

    Attaches quickly, adjustments lock in place, flexibility. I bought this for my Avenger, and it's a great fit. I like the 45 degree position, it's very sturdy, and has plenty of range. It's like getting more height positions with the angle settings. The lever for the tilt and pan works smoothly

    Things I liked:

    Very sturdy build, feels heavy duty. A perfect match to the Airforce Condor.

    Things I would have changed:

    It is good the way it is, however I think if it had a spring return when retracting the leg extensions it would be really nice.

    What others should know:

    This is a good bipod. You get a sturdy bipod with a decent amount of wiggle room to correct for uneven surfaces without having to adjust the legs so much. For the money.... well worth it.

  • 5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    This is a nice inexpensive bipod that seems to have some extra's, swivel and tilt, that I may need. I bought it to use with my Marauder rifle. But like many just after a small amount of use the tension lever lost the ability to put tension on the turret enough to prevent movement. Well, there is away to do this but for some reason it's not in the instructions! Read the "Anything else airgunners should know?"

    Things I would have changed:

    Include how to adjust current tension in the instructions!! And put a standard screwdriver slot/groove on the cap for easier removal.

    What others should know:

    The "cap" atop the lever unscrews and must be removed to make any adjustments. But it's not easy because the height of the cap, >1mm, does not allow easy grasping with tools. So, beware that you may scuff it up, as I did, when trying to remove it. The best tool I found was a small vise grip. You could put tape on the vise grip to hep prevent damage to the cap. The cap appears to have some possible thread locking compound on it which explains why my first attempt failed. The cap threads are small and on a small center "spindle", not around the edge as I suspected. With the cap removed, the Allen screw can be removed and the lever sits atop a small hex nut. Lift the lever off the nut and advance it one position counter clockwise. Reset the Allen screw, replace cap and your good to go.

    Things I liked:

    the locking lever that controls panning and tilt

    Things I would have changed:

    the lever that controls panning and tilt is not adjustable I would like to be available to tighten it up a little more I'm using it on a heavy riffle. the other thing is they did away with 2 positions on the leg angle you can turn the legs around to gain the 2 positions that the old style has but then the locking lever is out of reach or you have to stretchy for it then you have to reputation your body.

  • 3.0 3.0

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    It's rugged, looks nice and I really like that he legs can swing forward or back (not the same as the 360).

    Things I would have changed:

    The 360 is actually a ball head and it cannot be tightened down enough to lock firmly in place, so your bipod will shift with a moderate amount of effort. I really dislike this. I don't want a ball head, I just want 360 on one axis and I want it to lock period.

    What others should know:

    I would not buy this again. 100% due to the not fully locking ball head. If you want that feature (you don't) then this is otherwise a great bi-pod.

    Things I liked:

    Looks and feels nice. Seems solid.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. It seems great it just doesnt fit the rifle i purchased it for.

    What others should know:

    I'm kind of bummed, it wont fit my FX Impact's stock lower rail. Either it hits my tank or it hits my fill connector. Not devastated though....i'm sure i'll put it to use.

  • 4.0 4.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    Great bipod, I've had It about 6 months and waited to review, to see how It holds up. Its really solid. Probably the best Chinese made bipod I've used. Its no Atlas, but It's Nice. The posi lock thumb wheels are great and can tighten the legs at varying and different heights, not just In the notches. The tilting and panning Is nice BUT Unfortunately, unless you have a allen wrench everywhere, then the tilting and panning Is not really useful. I set It and left It, but left It just a tad backed off, so If I want to, I can still achieve different angles or to level out on uneven ground. What's really great too about this bipod Is that the legs can be In the forward and rear position In multiple degrees. So let's say you have a small carbine or the FX Impact. Where the picatinny mount Is so far back that when a bipod Is mounted, It's at 90 degrees, and the gun Isn't balanced. But with this bipod you just tip the legs forward. The bipod comes with a nice stud adapter too.

    Things I would have changed:

    The only real annoyances that I noticed Is, One, I would've changed the adjustment design of the panning and tilting to a small lever or Thumb wheel too, as The Caldwell and some other makes have. Instead of needing to adjust two Allen bolts. The second Issue, as other reviewer stated, Is the arms are so stiff to move front to back. This has gotten a little better with use but not by much. Oiling did little to reduce the stiffness. On my synthetic stocked guns, while mounted with the adapter to the sling swivel stud, I was so nervous In cold weather that It would crack my stock where the sling stud Is. If using a synthetic stock and you are In cold weather where plastics get very brittle, then I highly recommend that you grab one of the bipods arms with one hand while adjusting the other side, then switch. This will greatly reduce the stresses placed on the sling stud.

    What others should know:

    It comes with a nice sling stud adapter that lets you mount the adapter to your existing sling swivel stud, and gives you a 1 notch picatinny and a sling stud. So you can mount BOTH the bipod and a sling off one sling stud.

    Things I liked:

    The tilt and swivel capabilities of this bipod are the only reason I decided to not return it. They allow your gun to move freely, when tension screws are backed off, preventing any stresses from transferring to your gun and effecting point of impact. The legs are so difficult to rotate into position though, that you'll think you've forgotten to release the locking levers.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the swivel points for each leg a lot easier to move. I was tempted to pull mine bipod off my gun and throw it more than once. After moving each leg from stop to stop a few hundred times, they loosen up enough to be less of a struggle.

    What others should know:

    If you're not looking for a good way to workout your forearms, buy a different model.
