|This bipod is great. I own another one of the same kind, just a bit shorter for my .17HMR.
These are great quality for the price. They aren't indestructible (maybe an 8.5 on the quality scale), but I'm sure they could take a little bit of a beating.
The locking mechanism is easy to use and locks tight.
The swivel stud adapter is a nice bonus if you need one. It adds a removable rail to any standard rifle swivel/base for mounting the bipod. So, even if you decide to take off the bipod, you can use the rail for other goodies.|
