It is not an Atlas, KAC, Evolution, GGG, etc. I wish the legs locked in the closed position. And had a 45 degree capabilities. Other then that, its a nice bi-pod.
    The legs don't lock closed?

    ETA, when I first read that I was super disappointed. Then again, the Harris legs don't either. They're just really hard to lower.

    Is a polymer M-Lok rail section considered strong enough to mount the bipod?

    That's actually pretty easy to see in their video, looks like it was designed that way for quick deployment.

    Either way not a deal breaker. Upon handling it the Magpul bipod seems more like a Harris killer instead of an Atlas killer. Keeping in mind the Atlas is nicer for around $150 more. I was surprised the Magpul and Atlas weighed the same, 11.3oz on my scale w/o a mount. The Atlas is a little more low profile, but nothing earth shattering.

    That's precisely what it is for me. An alternative to the Harris, not an Atlas. Between just a few guys I was shooting with recently, I can think of four Magpul bipods sold to people who would have ended up with a Harris eventually but are better served(theoretically) by the Magpul, so they bought a Magpul. Mine showed up today. I think it's all about trying to sway the "working man" demographic, and Magpul seems to do that well as a company.
