What is the main advantage to the straight legs over the slotted legs on the harris bipods?  It seems like the slotted legs would help you level the rifle better.  I am wrong about this?


Thanks,


Jeff W.

I just got a new harris BRM in 6-9" with leg notches today. The advantege is that you can quickly set each leg to identical hight. The problem is that for some reason a bipod is almost never perfectly square with the rifle, a friction lock model can make extremely fine adjustments that would correct this and level the rifle, (if you adjusted if properly). you can ONLY adjust a leg notch bipod in one inch increments, so you can't correct the out of level problem. If you get one with a swivel capeability +30$ than a completely different mechanism will correct the problem, and you will have the ease of ajusting the leg height in accurate increments with level rifle.

I would like to purchase a Harris bipod for my Savage. Does anyone know what would work best on it? Any good Harris websites to research this on?

Look at this website.  Should help.

 

http://www.harrisbipods.com/

 

Best bet is to go to shop where you can take in you rifle and check the best one.  If your stock is rounded and you have a sling swivel stud, you should be able to use about any of them.

 

Hope that helps.

Harris "BRM-S" is what I recommend.

It is the "swivel" type so the legs can be on uneven ground, and the rifle can be turned level.  This is the notched leg version too- the leg notches are way faster to adjust. Just pull the leg out and it will lock on the notch.  The one without notches takes far longer to adjust. You have to pull the leg out the distance you want, hold it while turning the friction lock- It's a two handed operation you have to do for each leg.

The height of the bipod is dependent on your body structure.  If you're skinny or normal build, usually the 6-9" model.  If you're thicker in the middle, then the 9-13"

Green mountain tactical has good prices on these.

Notches are faster, but if you get an "S" model consider the after-market Pod-Loc.

+1 on the "S" model. I don't know so much about the BRM. This bench rest pod may be a little short in the legs if you shoot where the grass is tall. I put a HB25-S (12"-25") on mine, because the tall grass will not let you see anything from a short bipod. I would consider your shooting area before buying, and decide on a leg length and whether you want leg notches like on the HBLM-S first. I would splurge for the swivel model though. I didn't on one, and I still regret it.
