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.

    Am I the only one who is hoping for a version that attaches to an old-fashioned sling-swivel stud?

    For those of us coming from Harris bipods, and/or those of us whose bolt guns came with an extra stud to mount a bipod, this isn't going to work well...

    Good updates guys. Unfortunately for me, I really wanted the 45 degree legs.

    I'd be surprised if we don't see a "PRO" version in a year or two that has 45 degree legs, etc ... they may be taking Harris's money right now, but there's a whole other group of consumers after that to attract.

    Yeah, the Atlas hits the marks for me now but if MP makes a “pro” which adds the 45 degree, I am game.

    Well I had photos in this thread that disappeared. Guess they didn't want pics of there product modified in their thread. The 45 is the main appeal for me personally. It would be a huge alternative to the atlas, and other 45 degree bipods. I wouldn't think adding another slot in the leg would add much cost when it's already being machined. I'll keep the one I modified and wait out for the next version.
