    Hard to say. The way my bipods hook onto regular steel studs, there isn't much to it as far as wear and tear is concerned. I've had similar concerns about QD sling attachment points in Al rails, but never personally had a problem (yet).

    Is it advisable to have an aluminum bipod mount? I'd think that stud would wear quickly.

    I have this. The coating handles a lot of abuse actually so itís not nearly as soft as bare aluminum. It will show wear if youíre not loosening the bipod as much as you can while doing it but it will take a lot of mount and dismounts.

    And if not for bipods... I wonder how these would hold up to drop tests. Itís interesting but probably not a hard use solution.

    Not for bipods while shooting harder recoiling weapons, the warning reads...

    **NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE AS A BIPOD ATTACHMENT POINT ON CALIBERS LARGER THAN 5.56 and certain bolt action firearms. Due to loading the Bipod, the QD Kinect system can disengage from recoil.***

    They also make a Harris Bipod stud version with the same warning, so it clearing intended for bipod use.

    But yeah, a legit point, I wonder how much abuse they would take. My thoughts are to use one on a couple rifle with M-Lok rails that I don't keep bipod on but want to use one temporarily for sighting in purposes.

    Interesting. I noticed the Harris version actually says up to .308 on the warning.
