What is a bipod?

A bipod -or bi-pod as the not often used, but correct term is- can easily be explained ass having a two-legged front support for your rifle. The legs can often be folded to get out of the way when transporting or shooting freehand, and the legs can be adjusted in length independently. A rifle bipod is used as a replacement for a sandbag. The reason for this can be just preference, but often not having to take the heavy sandbag as a loose accessory with you is a factor. And talking about carrying your gear, the lesser weight if one of the main reasons hunters will opt for a gun bipod.
With a bipod, you’ve always got a gun rest at hand whenever you need it.

Which adjustment options does a bipod have?

All bipods have legs that are independently adjustable in length. It’s the most important feature to help you find the best shooting position. By adjusting the legs separately, the gun can be held level on uneven surfaces.

Depending on the type of gun bipod, the legs can be folded too. This is a feature that’s most welcome for people who use their rifle both prone and standing. It means the bipod can stay put under all circumstances. Other adjustment options can be:

  • Angle – By adjusting the angle of the legs, putting them forward or backward, you can play with the balance of your rifle. It also helps you finetune your shooting stance.
  • Tilt – Being able to tilt your rifle left or right, you’ll gaining more freedom of movement for your shooting position. It also helps you finetune the levelling of your rifle.
  • Rotate – Also more freedom of movement to find the perfect shooting position here. But above all, a rotating bipod allows you to follow a moving target.

How to attach a bipod

A rifle bipod is attached near the forend of a rifle. Most of the time, this will be to the underside, but there are also bipods that can be attached to the top of a rifle to a long scope rail or a handguard. There are even two-piece bipods (two separate legs) for mounting on accessory rails on both sides of the rifle. Let’s give you an overview of the mounting options:

  • Arca Swiss bipod – This system is often used to connect cameras to tripods, but makes sense as a bipod mount too, as it’s easy to release by means of a Quick Detach lever. After releasing, just a small Arca Swiss plate will stay attached to the rifle. Such a plate is for sale in our shop for mounting on a Weaver/Picatinny rail or on an M-LOK system.
  • Clamp-on bipod – If your rifle doesn’t have any mounting options for a bipod, then the clamp-on system will let you attach a bipod straight onto the barrel. It’s the most universal bipod available.
  • Dovetail bipod – A dovetail rail mostly is only used as a scope rail, but every now and then, a rifle may feature one as an accessory rail at the underside of the rifle. These rails are uncommon underneath, but do have the advantage of letting you slide the bipod anywhere you want.
  • Swivel stud bipod – Normally, a sling swivel is attached to a stud in the stock, but some bipods are also designed to make use of that stud when the swivel is removed.
  • UIT bipod – Otherwise known as an Anschütz rail, which means you won’t often find one on another rifle. However, we do have bipods for them. And just like with a dovetail rail, an UIT bipod can be slid anywhere on the rail.
  • Weaver/Picatinny bipod – One of the most common accessory rails (and scope rails), around which a bipod can be easily clamped and fixated in a specific slot. Picatinny is the variant with slots from beginning to end, while Weaver only has slots in strategic places. Often, Picatinny bipods feature a Quick Release mechanism, with which the bipod is quickly mounted and taken off.
  • AR bipod – Besides all the options stated above that are suitable for rails, we’ve also got bipods that are perfect for mounting on handguards, such as can be found on an AR rifle. These AR bipods can be coupled to slotted systems, such as an M-LOK bipod or a KeyMod bipod. They have the advantage that no further accessory rails are needed, which means no extra weight. So, if you own an AR rifle, these AR bipods are perfect.

Air rifle bipod

Especially powerful air rifles with a large range are often equipped with a bipod. They give a steady support when shooting long distance. As you can imagine, it’ll be mainly PCP air rifles that will be featuring a bipod, but even a break barrel can have one mounted. To prevent the bipod being in the way when breaking the barrel, your bipod of choice would be one that is attached to the top of the airgun, with the extra-long legs going down the sides.

Best bipod for hunting

Well, that’s quite easy. You want to be able to follow the target if needed, right? So, the best bipod for hunting would be one that can rotate and tilt. And of course, it should be foldable too. What you also want is the bipod being lightweight. Most of them are made from either aluminium or carbon, but just to be sure, do have a look at the weight in the specifications when buying one.

Best rifle bipod for long range shooting

Perfect positioning will be very important, so the best rifle bipod for long range shooting will have adjustable legs with multiple angle options. You want the rifle to be able to tilt and rotate, but also for these options to be locked in place. Weight is less of an issue, and lots of long range shooters prefer their bipod to be on the heavy side.

Buying a bipod

When you’re looking to buy a bipod, the first selection will be the easiest. See which mounting system your rifle offers and discard the options that can’t be attached. Next step is figuring out the length needed for the legs. Almost all bipods have adjustable legs, so filter for legs with a range that suits your rifle. And after that, you can decide if you need one that can tilt, rotate, et cetera.

We do have a lot of bipods for sale, so if you’re undecided or just flabbergasted, please feel free to ask our experts for advice. They’ll make sure you get the best bipod for your rifle.
