Interesting New Bipod Design

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just spotted a post over on Gunboards which sounded quite interesting both for military and civilian shooters.

  2. I am sure it is well designed good kit, but what is wrong with a harris, a day sack a chair or even a rolled up smock, stuff I can find or already carry. Great for hunters etc, bit to busy for field use. Of course this is only my opinion on first sight and having never used it, others may have a different view. but they might not be on foot.
     
  3. The principles used in this "revolutionary" bipod are already well known - e.g. hanging weights off the barrel/ forend at the right point will damp barrel vibrations and improve group size. Problem is that no-one apart from a bench rest shooter particularly wants a heavy and unwieldy rifle.
     
  4. What's this about grouping? I thought snipers excelled in one-shot groups.

    And anybody else would be wasting ammo by putting bullets through the same hole.
     
  5. I was waiting for the punchline. Sadly there wasn't one.

    I'm sure it's very nice and bubba will order two.
