I have Harris and Versa-Pod bipods, and they are better bipods, but if you only need one occasionally this one is okay. The springs are on the weak side when extended in the down position, so heavy recoil could result in the collapse of the legs. The lower legs are very loose tolerance, but not a problem that I can see, just have some play in them.

This bipod was easy to install. I had to buy the sling swivel stud adapter that mouinted to the picatinny rail system. The bipod is light, as rugged as a Harris model at half the price. Not knocking Harris, but this bipod performs as advertised. Light and sturdy.

Weighs a bit to much and would love to have it rotate side to side to track animals.

As a marksman on a SWAT team I rely on the best gear, but sometimes cost can get out of hand. I picked up the Caldwell XLA pivot position bipod on a whim when I was making another Optics Planet purchase. I didn't expect too much but upon delivery I looked, felt and operated identically to my Harris bipods. After weeks of field testing to include 100's of rounds and several long stalks through the woods I found this item to be of equal quality to Harris at half the cost. I do not see myself going with Harris again.

Good Bipod for the money compared to other more expensive and similar brands. Shipping was fast and product was as advertised. Bipod is plenty adequate for the novice or intermmediate shooter.
