    Handguard mounted bipod for tabletop shooting?

    Need your help, Gents.

    I've decided to use my ACOG more with a dedicated upper that I plan to outfit with a railed handguard and a handguard-mounted bipod.

    Which bipod?

    I'm content with a "range grade" bipod to get me started but I'd want a better one later.

    Harris is a great great manufacturer.

    Most Bipods will serve tableshooting very well. But, what are you looking for out of it?

    Do you want the legs to Auto-Snap back in? A lot of people will forward mount their bipods for that purpose.

    Do you want to swivel or be locked in without the ability to rotate?

    All have their ups and downs, and there are so many models. If just bench rested/table top. I would use locking and adjustable legs. Since it's a dedicated upper, get ones that have long legs. Up to 15" to accommodate different surfaces and shooting positions.

    Harris has models of all types, mounting hardware, rotating, cam-lock legs or quick deploy, and length of legs. A little pricy, but a buddy has one on his Rem 700, and it's above so many in terms of quality and craftsmanship.

    I know it's a weasel answer, but I just want a good all-round basic bipod that mounts to a handguard rail.

    I kind of want to start with an inexpensive one until I decide I want to keep that configuration, then I'll spend the money on a "good" one.

    I've used many a Harris bipod and they are solid.

    A notched leg harris should be fine, I have a smooth leg that works but wish I had the notched leg on that bipod.

    Also have a atlas, it's very nice but not worth x3 the price of what I paid for the harris.

    A Harris with swivel and leg notches is the easy answer.

    Another vote for Harris here. They’re solid and well-built, find the length that suits you and you’ll be good to go.

    I’ve found used Harris bipods in the $40-50 range. Basic, non swivel models to be sure, but still a solid option.

    I'll throw my vote in for Harris.

    My favourite bipod is the Bobro Engineering, but I don't think it's made any longer and it was much more expensive.
